The scale of China's calcite demand continues to expand to promote technological innovation and development in the industry

release time:


Calcite is a calcium carbonate mineral and the most important carbonate mineral, which is widely distributed in nature. The main component of calcite is calcium carbonate. Calcite is widely used and can be processed into light calcium carbonate powder and heavy calcium fine powder. Light calcium carbonate powder is widely used in rubber, plastic, PVC pipe, profile, coating, paper, paint, sealant, daily necessities, medicine, feed as filler and reinforcing agent; heavy calcium fine powder can be used in artificial stone, artificial floor tile , natural rubber, synthetic rubber, coatings, plastics, composite new calcium plastics, cables, paper, toothpaste, cosmetics, glass, medicine, paint, ink, cables, electrical insulation, food, textiles, feed, adhesives, sealants, Asphalt, building materials, linoleum construction supplies, fire-resistant large panels and daily chemicals.


Talking about the various forms of calcite

From the perspective of the global market, the main producing areas of calcite are China, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, the United States, Germany and other countries. Calcite is widely distributed around the world, but it is easy to cause environmental problems in the process of ore mining. Many countries have begun to restrict the mining of calcite. Countries and regions such as Europe and the United States have successively set the access standards for the calcite mining and processing industry, stipulated the minimum construction scale of new mining projects, and standardized the development of the calcite industry. In the future, with the advancement of environmental protection policies, the development of the calcite industry in North America, Europe and other places will be limited to a certain extent, and the growth rate of its supply will slow down. The Asian region has relatively rich calcite mineral resources, and the calcite mineral resources in China, Vietnam and other places are of high quality, which can meet the needs of downstream papermaking, plastics, rubber, cables, paints and coatings and other fields. The Asian calcite industry will be further developed It is expected that the supply capacity in Asia will gradually increase in the future.

From the perspective of the domestic market, as the main raw material of heavy calcium carbonate, calcite is more and more widely used in industries such as papermaking, plastics, rubber, coatings and building materials. With the development of the downstream market, the market demand for calcite will continue to grow. In addition, ultrafine heavy calcium carbonate products have good application performance and can be used in high-end plastics, medicine, food and other fields. In recent years, with the transformation and upgrading of plastics, medicine, food and other fields, the demand for ultra-fine heavy calcium carbonate in my country has been increasing, the market space has continued to expand, and the demand for high-quality calcite has also continued to increase. According to the "2020-2025 in-depth analysis of the calcite industry and the "14th Five-Year Plan" development planning guidance report released by Xinsijie, in 2020, the scale of China's calcite demand will be 1.544 billion yuan.

Analysts from Xinsijie believe that with the continuous development of downstream industries such as papermaking, plastics, rubber, coatings and building materials, ordinary calcite ore can no longer adapt to the large-scale, refined and functional development of the modern heavy calcium carbonate industry. This requires investors to strengthen technological innovation research, learn from the advanced mining and processing technologies of enterprises in developed countries, and introduce them in a timely and reasonable manner to improve the technical level and capabilities of enterprises.
