The Europe Calcium Carbonate Market Size is expected to reach USD 16.76 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 4.61% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Calcium carbonate, more often known as CaCO3, is a resonance-stabilized artificial salt that is utilized commercially as a food additive, dietary supplement, antacid, and phosphate binder. Calcium carbonate is one of the most common elements in the earth's outermost layer and can be found in a variety of organic materials, including egg and shell casings, crustacean exoskeletons, and dark-colored green vegetables like broccoli and spinach. The applications of calcium carbonate go beyond medicine. Calcium carbonate is used in industry as a filler material in paper, ink, fire extinguishers, and adhesives, glues as an essential part of agricultural and mining dust, as an ingredient in household cleansers, as an additive to food compound, and as an additive to cosmetics.


The primary application of calcium carbonate can be found in the construction field, where it is used as a building material or limestone gravel for roadway construction, as an additive in concrete, or as a foundation for the creation of builders' lime by kiln burning. In a blast furnace, calcium carbonate is utilized as well to purify iron from iron ore. Calcium carbonate is commonly added to drilling solutions in petroleum extraction as a formation-bridging and filter cake-sealing agent; it also serves as an anchoring substance that raises the density of drilling solutions to manage downhole pressure. Calcium carbonate is commonly used as an extender in paints, particularly matte emulsion paint, which is typically 30% by weight chalk or marble. It is also used as a filler in polymers. Calcium carbonate is also used in a variety of commercial and do-it-yourself adhesives, sealants, and decorative fillers.

Driving Factors

The Europe calcium carbonate market is expected to be driven by increasing demand for calcium carbonate in multiple applications such as dietary supplements, metalloid minerals, and additives in thermoplastics such as Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). It can also be discovered in chemicals for cleaning, pharmaceuticals, beauty products, and nutritional products. Germany led the European calcium carbonate market and had the highest revenue proportion. The European market is also expanding rapidly as a result of the increasing number of various small and medium-sized businesses. The moderate development of residential and non-residential buildings in Europe is predicted to improve demand for paints and coatings.


As the population grows, so does the demand for treated drinking water. In the coming years, this is projected to drive product demand as a water treatment element. The calcium carbonate additives are found in numerous industrial products in Europe due to their exceptional advantages such as distinctive white color, great light scattering capability, excellent visibility, and less expensive than wood flour or sawdust. The advent of novel industrial applications, such as nano calcium carbonate, has resulted in a major increase in the calcium carbonate market in Europe. Limestone, chalk, and calcite are the primary raw materials utilized in manufacturing.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the GCC segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period.

On the basis of product type, the Europe Calcium Carbonate Market is segmented into GCC and PCC. Among these, the GCC segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period, owing to the rising utilization of GCC as a filler in a numerous of industrial applications. The paper industry is a major consumer of GCC goods. GCC filler material is utilized in the production of wood-free paper. GCC-based fillers are growing in popularity because of benefits such as excellent brightness and low cost. Calcium carbonate filler is becoming more popular in the paper industry as the market for denser and whiter papers grows.


  • In 2022, the industrial fillers segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 42.3% over the forecast period.

On the basis of application, the Europe Calcium Carbonate Market is segmented into industrial fillers, rock dust, water treatment, paper, plastic, paints & coatings, adhesive & sealants, and others. Among these, the industrial fillers segment dominates the market with the highest revenue share of 42.3% over the forecast period, owing to the rising application of calcium carbonate as a mineral filler in the plastic industry. It is used as a plastic addition to improve the performance, processing, acceptance, and sustainability of the produced item. Furthermore, as the population and societal awareness grow, so does the demand for drinking water purification. This will likely push its adoption as a water-treatment ingredient. Several companies have begun to focus on water purification in order to reduce environmental effects and earn carbon credits.
