Precipitated calcium carbonate is a bright, high purity mineral, and commonly referred to as PCC. It is obtained by precipitating a calcium salt out of a solution under definite conditions. Calcium carbonate participates from the admixture of gaseous sodium carbonate or carbon dioxide. Additionally, the precipitated calcium carbonate is available in different sizes and shapes based on precipitation conditions including temperature, concentration, pH, and agitation energy. The product is cost-effective and offers high strength, excellent compatibility, and better bonding with the polymeric resins. The precipitated calcium carbonate finds its use in the paper industry, adhesives & sealants, plastic industry, and paints & coatings industry.
The increasing demand for precipitated calcium carbonate in the paper industry will fuel market growth. The precipitated calcium carbonate is highly used as a filler in the paper industry. As a filler, it is added with paper strengthening agent, retention agent, and neutral sizing agent in order to provide good paper quality owing to its uniform particle shape and narrow particle size distribution. Moreover, the precipitated calcium carbonate provides intrinsic whiteness and brightness, thereby helps to increase sheet brightness. Hence, increasing demand for the precipitated calcium carbonate in the paper industry will boost the market growth.
However, less awareness of precipitated calcium carbonate’s uses and benefits impacts its overall demand. This restricts its adoption in various applications and is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
