March 28, 2014

ALBANY, New York, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Calcium
Carbonate Market (GCC and PCC) for Paper, Plastic, Building & Construction and Other
Applications – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2013 -
2019″, the global calcium carbonate market was valued at USD 15.66 billion in 2012 and is
expected to reach USD 25.01 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast
period from 2013 to 2019. In terms of volume, global calcium carbonate market was 86.5
million in 2012.

Growth in paper and plastic industries is expected to boost the demand for calcium
carbonate over the next six years. Calcium carbonate consumption has been increasing in
these major end-use industries owing to technologically developed product, enhanced
physical properties and regulatory compliance for various applications. Additionally,
rising demand for cement, adhesives and sealants from building and construction industries
is in turn expected to fuel demand for calcium carbonate. For proper functioning of our
vital body parts that include the heart, blood clotting system and nerves require calcium
to some extent. However, in the pharmaceutical industry, adverse effects due to excessive
consumption of calcium are expected to hamper market growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is riding on the rapid industrial growth in countries such as China,
India, etc. and is anticipated to be the second fastest growing market over the forecast
period of next six years. Growing hygiene awareness among the people, rising education
facilities and changing lifestyle of people in this region has led to significant growth
in the consumption of papers, specialty papers such as tissues and packaging paper among
others. This is further expected to fuel the growth of paper industry and which in turn
expected to trigger volume consumption of calcium carbonate. Asia Pacific accounted for
49.0% of global volume of calcium carbonate in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of
4.4% between 2013 and 2019. Developed regions such as North America and Europe are
expected to experience comparatively slow growth due to restructuring and closure of paper
mills. Europe accounted for 23.7% of the demand for calcium carbonate which was followed
by North America. RoW which includes Latin America, the Middle East and Africa is the
fastest growing market which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2013 to 2019.
