Calcite crystal in Carbonate mineral is one of the unique mineral which is comprised of the carbonate ion CO3. The carbonates are one of the most extensively disseminated minerals in the Earth’s crust. These mineral ions include hydrated carbonates, bicarbonates, and compound carbonates, when combines with metal cations they together form carbonate minerals. Carbonate minerals are widely used in many industrial applications such as glasses, light bulbs, ceramic tiles, mugs, plates, paints, plastic wide goods, wooden flooring, salt, detergents, sugar, and heating elements.
The Carbonate Minerals market is segmented into type, which includes calcite, magnesite, aragonite, smithsonite, and dolomite. Globally demand for carbonate minerals is expected to witness considerable growth due to increasing demand in the end-use industries which is expected to be the key growth driver for carbonate minerals in during the period of study. Among all the type, calcite is the leading shareholder and expected to continue its growth during the forecast period. Magnesite and aragonite are the second leading market shareholder and expected to lead the same.
