Reportlinker Adds Calcium Carbonate – A Global Market Report

December 8, 2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Calcium Carbonate – A Global Market Report

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164401/Calcium-Carbonate—A-Global-Market-Report.html

Calcium carbonate is primarily used in the paper industry. The material is also extensively used in paint, plastic and rubber industries for enhanced product quality and cost reduction. Strong and continued growth is forecast in the global precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) capacity. A major trend likely to emerge in the future is PCC-GCC blends, particularly for the coatings market.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Calcium Carbonate: A Global Market Report” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
