About Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC)

PCC is processed from limestone by purifying the high-quality calcium carbonate and removing waste rock particles such as heavy metals, and silicaceous minerals. Carbon dioxide reacts with calcium carbonate to produce PCC. PCC is one the widely used mineral compounds. It is a cost-effective mineral generally used as filler material. It offers a large spectrum of advantages in papermaking such as brightness, gloss, whiteness, opacity, and viscosity.

The analysts forecast the global precipitated calcium carbonate market to grow at a CAGR of 5.63% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global precipitated calcium carbonate market: Imerys, OKUTAMA KOGYO, Omya, Mississippi Lime Company, and Schaefer Kalk.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Calchem, Cales de Llierca, CARMEUSE, Lhoist, and Minerals Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is increasing popularity of NPCC. PCC is synthesized in various crystal shapes and sizes. A distinct category of ultrafine PCC is NPCC. Commonly, NPCC is less than 0.1 microns or 100 nanometers in size. It is predominantly used in the manufacturing of automotive and construction sealants.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing consumption in paints industry. The consumption of PCC in the paints and coatings industry is growing and expected to grow at a considerable pace over the forecast period. PCC is used as an extender agent to enhance the porosity and opacity of paints, coatings, and inks and also improve their hiding power. PCC helps in reducing the cost by improving the quality and covering the surface in gravure, flexographic, lithographic, and silk screen printing inks. Most commonly it is used as an extender for titanium dioxide.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is environmental hazards. Limestone is an alkaline sedimentary rock, generally found as deposits. These rocks can be present over the ground or underground and spread over a large area. Limestone is generally mined and then processed as per the product requirement. There are several environmental hazards associated with limestone mining that largely affect the natural habitat. Limestone mining disturbs the ground and surface water reserves and water conditions.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
