The global calcium carbonate market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period. Significant applications of calcium carbonate in the plastics and paper industry are the major factor in driving the market growth. Calcium carbonate is used as an alternative in papermaking and is regarded as a major filler in the manufacturing of uncoated digital printing paper. Calcium carbonate improves several properties of paper, including dimensional stability, opacity, write ability, brightness, sheet formation, and printability, and supports enhanced furnish drainage rate, productivity, and machine speed. The major cause behind the potential use of calcium carbonate is the demand for bulkier and brighter paper.

Ground calcium carbonate (GCC) has high brightness and is cost-effective. It develops a porous surface on the paper sheet owing to its rhombohedral particle shape. Additionally, precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) is a low-cost mineral for the production of high-quality paper and paperboard through the substitution of huge costly additives, wood pulp, or other minerals. Coating PCC has benefits over GCC owing to its superior gloss and opacity. Owing to these potential uses, the growth in the paper industry is offering additional opportunities for market growth. For instance, as per the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global paper and paperboard output rose by more than 25% between 2000 and 2018. The growing paper production is in turn, accelerating the growth of the market.
