In this market, ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) are used as filler in paper, plastic, paint & coating, rubber, and adhesives & sealants. Lucintel forecasts that GCC will remain the largest segment due to the growth in plastic and coating applications. On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that PCC will witness the highest growth during the forecast period and this growth will be supported by increasing penetration in plastic and paint & coating applications due to its high brightness, opacity, and absorption level.

Within the GCC and PCC market, the paper segment is expected to remain the largest application market by value and volume consumption. Growth of the packaging and tissue paper market is expected to drive the paper segment over the forecast period. Lucintel predicts that demand for calcium carbonate in the paint and coating market is expected to witness the highest growth in the forecast period due to increasing usage of calcium carbonate as a substitute of titanium dioxide.
