Calcium Market Dynamics
Increasing Trend of Industrialization to Boost Demand for Calcium in Infrastructural Developments
Various composites of calcium find extensive applications in a wide range of industrial sectors, and rapidly increasing number of infrastructural developments due to industrialization across the world is boosting demand for calcium. Furthermore, growth in the construction industry coupled with governmental investments in the infrastructural developments has provided an impetus to the demand for calcium. Thereby, recent trends of increasing industrialization are expected to play an important role in growth of the calcium market in the upcoming years.
Frequent Price Rise Hampers Growth of the Calcium Market
Despite the increasing uses of calcium in wide-ranging end-user industries, the calcium market is witnessing a negative impact on its growth due to leading players announcing a significant rise in the prices of calcium. Due to the uncertainty about the supply of raw materials, conformance to stringent regulatory frameworks, and packaging are among the major factors to coax manufacturers in the calcium market to announce the price rise of their calcium products. Increasing prices of calcium and its composites are leading to drive end-users to shift to cheaper calcium alternatives, which may hamper growth of the calcium market.
