The calcium sulphate market is expected to be worth USD 2.9 billion in 2021 and USD 4.5 billion by 2028, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% between 2022 and 2028.
This report examines the drivers, barriers, and effects on global demand for calcium sulphate. The paper also investigates new business opportunities for calcium sulphate.
Calcium Sulphate Market: Overview
Calcium sulphate, abbreviated CaSO4, is a colourless, odourless, crystalline powder with a melting point of 1400°C that occurs in nature in both anhydrous and hydrated forms. Anhydrite is made of anhydrous calcium sulphate, whereas fly alabaster and gypsum are made of hydrated calcium sulphate. On the market, there are several calcium sulphate compounds, including selenate, streetlight, tribal, and satin. When heated, calcium sulphate loses its water molecules and transforms into gypsum, also known as POP in flies. When POPs like band-aids, dividers, and moulds get wet, they stick together. Furthermore, calcium sulphate is used in agriculture as a soil conditioner, in the paper industry as a coating, in chemistry labs as a desiccant, and in art as a colouring agent.
Calcium Sulphate Market: Growth Drivers
Market growth will be driven by the expanding pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
Gypsum, also known as calcium sulphate, is used in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries as a whitening or colouring agent, as well as a calcium supplement for bone and cell growth. It is a natural organic excipient that contains essential calcium nutrients and can be used as a desiccant when anhydrite. By producing an inexpensive binder, filler, coating, disintegrant, or bulking agent for tablets and capsules, calcium sulphate eliminates the need for synthetic polymers and other non-organic compounds. It’s also in toothpaste, powders, lotions, and medications.
Calcium Sulphate Market: Segmentation
The form type, grade, function, industry vertical, and geography segments comprise the global calcium sulphate market.
The global market is divided into two categories based on form type: hydrated and anhydrous. The anhydrous category is expected to maintain its leadership throughout the forecast period, with the largest market share in 2021. The anhydrous form is a fine white powder or crystalline solid with no odour. It is used in a variety of processes, including cement production and paper filling.
The anhydrous form of calcium sulphate improves paper quality by making it stiffer, brighter, and easier to draw, print, and write on when used as a filler in the pulp and paper manufacturing process. Furthermore, calcium sulphate anhydrous or anhydrite can be used as a desiccant in medical applications such as dentistry. These advantages have made anhydrous calcium sulphate more popular than other forms, hastening its rise.
Food & beverage, cosmetic & personal care, pulp & paper, building & construction, chemical & petrochemical, pharmaceutical & healthcare, agricultural, mining, and other industries comprise the global calcium sulphate market. The building and construction industry is the most powerful.
