Global Talc Market 2021-2027
全球滑石市場在預測期間內預計將以3.4％的成長率擴大。新興經濟體需求的增加、工業化率的提高以及在汽車和其他終端行業的使用增加是加速全球滑石市場增長的一些主要因素。2020年，全球生產了包括轎車和商用車在內的超過660億輛汽車。隨著汽車工業的發展，塑料在汽車中的使用越來越多。聚丙烯樹脂（包括滑石粉）的使用量逐年增加。在小型汽車中，與中大型汽車相比，滑石改性聚丙烯的使用率較高（中小型汽車中使用的塑料約有 40% 是聚丙烯和滑石基）。中國占亞太地區汽車產量的56.95%，這清楚地表明滑石粉在汽車領域的增長很高。
Full-title:Global Talc Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Deposits (Talc Carbonates, Talc Chlorites, and Others) and by End-user (Ceramics, Construction, Cosmetics and Personal Care, Paints and Coatings, Pharmaceuticals, Plastics, Pulp and Paper, and Others) Forecast Period (2021-2027).
The global talc market is anticipated to grow at a growth rate of 3.4% during the forecast period. Talc is a versatile mineral used in many industrial applications owing to its unique surface chemistry and lamellar properties. Cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, ceramics, construction, and pulp & paper are the key industries where talc is used. Talc is practically insoluble in water and weak acids and alkalis. It is neither explosive nor flammable. In addition, it has very little chemical reactivity and is organophilic in nature. The size of an individual talc platelet can vary from 1 micron to 100 microns, based on deposits.
Increasing demand from emerging economies, rising industrialization rates, and increasing use in automotive and other end-use industries are some of the primary factors accelerating the growth of the global talc market. In 2020, more than 66 billion vehicles that included cars and commercial vehicles were produced worldwide. With the evolution of the automotive industry, the usage of plastic in cars is increasing. The usage of polypropylene resin, including talc, has increased over the years. In smaller cars, the usage of polypropylene modified with talc is high as compared to medium and large cars (approximately 40% of plastic used in small/medium cars are polypropylene and talc-based). China accounted for 56.95% of APAC's vehicle production, which clearly indicates that the growth of talc in the automotive field is high.
On the other hand, the talc market has been highly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to variations in the construction business, and a majority of end-users' manufacturing plants were closed. Increasing pricing pressures and shortage of labor in many countries have impacted construction and infrastructure development activities.
The talc market is segmented based on the deposits and end-user. Based on deposits, the market is sub-segmented into talc carbonates, talc chlorites, and others. Based on end-user, the market is segmented into ceramics, construction, cosmetics and personal care, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, plastics, pulp and paper, and others. Owing to the properties of talc such as softness, lamellar, resistivity to heat, and stiffness, it is used in various industries. Talc is a mineral substance used in cosmetics and personal care products. It is added to absorb moisture, smooth, or soften products, prevent caking, and make makeup opaque. However, in the long term, the usage of talc in the cosmetics & personal care industry is expected to decrease owing to rising cases of ovarian cancer. Major companies such as L'oreal, Revlon, and Chanel have stopped using talc in their cosmetics.
Geographically, the talc market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. In 2020, Europe is projected to be one of the major markets for talc. The market in Europe is driven by the installation of new buildings as well as higher demand from renovations of talc and retrofit activities. The demand from retrofit and renovation accounts for the majority of the unit demand in Europe. The European construction growth is broad-based and is expected to occur across all sectors for both new construction and renovation activities, thereby driving the growth of the talc market in the region. Infrastructure facilities have become exceedingly complex with the rising amalgamation of smart technologies and products along with the growing consumer demand, which has accelerated production at industrial sites.
Key players operating in the global talc market include Imerys, Elementis, Mineral Technologies, IMI FABI, and Liaoning AIHAI Talc, among more. There are also smaller vendors in the talc market, such as Anand Talc, Haichen Minchem, Heritage Plastic, Chicago Protective Apparel, and more. Due to the highly competitive and volatile environment in the talc market, companies have started focusing on sustainability with a commitment to generate more value from fewer resources and turning environmental challenges and societal concerns into product innovations. Key players such as Imerys and Elementis are involved in several ongoing suitability partnerships. Sustainability is the key strategic approach in giving a competitive edge.
