The global calcium formate market size was USD 451.2 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 627.1 million by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

Calcium formate is a calcium salt of formic acid produced from calcium hydroxide and carbon monoxide or formed as a by-product while production of trimethylolpropane. The majorly used process to get calcium formate is through the reaction of dilute formic acid and calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide. This method produces excellent quality and a less water-content insoluble product. The mineral form of calcium formate is formicaite. It can form orthorhombic crystals and remains inflammable and stable at room temperature. Calcium formate is a white free-flowing powder packed in bags.

In the current global market scenario, calcium formate is majorly used in the production of concrete, cement-based mortars, putty, and tiles in the construction industry. The major application of calcium formate is enhancing properties of cement in the construction industry. Calcium formate is also used as an antibacterial and can be taken as calcium supplements. Other applications of calcium formate include masking agent in leather tanning, feed additive, de-icing agent, flue-gas desulfurization, adhesives & sealants, and pigment & dyes.

The current calcium methanoate market trends are rising demand for cement-based products, and growing feed, and leather industries.


“Growing Demand for Calcium Formate from Construction Industry to Boost Sales Opportunities”

Calcium formate is used as cement additives and accelerator, tile adhesives, and cement-based mortars. The growth in the consumption of cement from the construction industry effectively influences the calcium formate market growth.

Calcium formate is used as a cement additive in the construction industry for quick setting and increasing hardness of cement products. Cement is further used in the production of various products such as bricks and blocks, slabs & sheets, adhesives, and concrete. In addition, calcium formate is also used as an inhibitor, PH regulator,  corrosion protector to substrates of buildings & infrastructures, and for cementation of oil drilling. Currently, calcium formate is majorly used in the production of concrete in China which is the dominant country in the production and consumption of cement. Hence, the growing demand for cement from the construction industry is expected to drive the calcium methanoate market.


By Type Analysis

“Industrial Grade of Calcium Formate has Anticipated to Exhibit a Significant CAGR during the Forecast Period”

Industrial grade calcium formate is used as cement and tile additive, flue-gas desulfurization agent, de-icing agent, feed additive, and adhesive & sealant. Increasing demand for industrial-grade calcium formate from feed, construction, and chemical industries is expected to drive the calcium methanoate market globally. In addition, growing construction industry is expected to majorly support the calcium formate market regional forecast.

Similarly, feed grade calcium formate is expected to provide growth to the calcium methanoate market sales in the forecast period owing to the use of calcium formate as feed additive in the animal feed industry. Increasing demand for quality feed for animals from the feed industry will also drive the demand for market, globally.

By Application  Analysis

“The Construction Segment is Expected to Generate the Highest Revenue during the Forecast Period”

The demand for calcium formate as a cement accelerator is increasing due to several applications such as production of concrete and cement based mortar, cement blocks & sheets, and other based cement products required in the construction industry. The use of calcium formate in cement for enhancing its properties such as increased hardness and less setting time, inhibition of corrosion of metal substrates, and prevention of efflorescence is the major application for calcium formate in the construction industry. Thus, rising consumption of cement is expected to drive the calcium formate consumption.
