While the paper & pulp industry continues to influence growth strategies of key players, growing demand from construction industry and paint & coating industry is expected to result in increased market share.
What is the degree of competition in the carbonate minerals market?
The carbonate minerals market shows a perfect competition structure, with a large number of regional and local market players. In the current scenario, industry leaders such as Minerals Technologies, Inc., IMERYS Carbonates Llc, Calcinor SA Maruo Calcium Co., Ltd., Magnesita Refractories SA, and Lhoist North America Inc. collectively hold around one-fifth of the total revenue share.
Which region will lead the global sales of carbonate minerals?
Asia Pacific Excluding Japan (APEJ) remains at the forefront of the carbonate minerals market, with flourishing construction industry in emerging countries such as China and India. Manufacturers are focused for capitalizing on establishing new sales and service facilities in these emerging markets to fortify their network in these region in order to capture higher market share.
Calcite Makes up for over 40% Share
Calcite accounts for a higher share in market revenues against other minerals such as Dolomite, and Aragonite, and the trend is likely to continue through 2029. Particularly in producing papers, calcite or calcium carbonate is becoming the preferred mineral as it enhances the finishing characteristics of paper including gloss, and whiteness. Smithsonite is also accounting for a significant market share and its sales are expected to exceed US$ 10 Bn in 2019. While both calcite and smithsonite continue to influence market revenues, the former will grow 2x over the latter in terms of value.
Market in APAC Leading the Way
Asia Pacific (APAC) will maintain its supremacy in the global carbonate minerals market, with the regional market revenues projected to surpass US$ 25 Bn by 2029 end. While upsurge in construction spending is boosting market growth in China, and India, continuous innovations in the mining technology in Japan are also garnering huge stakeholders’ attention. Further, North America represents the fastest-growing carbonate minerals market and is likely to take over Western Europe in terms of revenues in the coming years.
Paints & Coatings Industry - Key Growth Influencer
The painting & coating industry is emerging as one of the key revenue generators for the global carbonate minerals market. Application of carbonate minerals in paints and coatings ensures consistency of the paint as well as promotes reliability of the end product. This, in turn, is leading to rising adoption of carbonate minerals in the paints, which capture nearly 16% of the total revenues.
Surging adoption of calcite
Smithsonite to gain traction
Natural accounts for 80% share
Demand for synthetic to increase
High usage in paper & pulp
Use in building & construction to pick pace
How Growth will Unfold
The paper & pulp industry will remain the key consumer of carbonate minerals, where they are used as fillers or coatings on paper. As the end-use category accounts for around 25% share of total consumption, market players should view it as their target customers. Given immense utilization of carbonate minerals as components of binding agents in construction aggregates, and sandstone, the building & construction sector is also attracting high capital investment from manufacturers.
