As of 2013, China’s output of calcium carbonate had reached 23 million t and had became the largest calcium carbonate manufacturer in global. In 2013, the outputs of light calcium carbonate and heavy calcium carbonate were 10.5 million t and 12.5 million t respectively.
In recent five years, the annual average growth rate of calcium carbonate industry was about 13%, which met the demand for calcium carbonate by national economy development.
At present, there are about 400 light calcium carbonate manufacturers, taking the small and medium-sized enterprises as primary, the manufacturers with annual output exceeding 300,000 t are less than 5%, the number of manufacturers with output exceeding 100,000 t are less than 60, the outputs of the rest of over 300 manufacturers are only 10,000-15,000 t separately.
Seeing from the supply structure of light calcium carbonate, the output of micro-powder calcium and particle calcium accounts for about 70% of total output, active calcium accounts for 12%, and superfine calcium and Nanometer Calcium accounts for 18%.
In 2013, the consumption of calcium carbonate stood at 22.9 million t in China, in which, the consumption in machine-made paper and paper board industry accounted for 36% of total consumption of calcium carbonate, plastic product industry accounted for 31%, coating industry accounted for 14%, and rubber product industry accounted for 5%. In recent years, these industries keep fast growth, which also drives the development of calcium carbonate industry.
As for the calcium carbonate products in China, in respect of total output, the supply meets demand basically, while in respect of product structure, the supply of low and middle grade products exceeds demands, the high grade products are in short supply and needs import.
In China, the fine grinding calcium carbonates (FGCC) used for paper-making and superfine active light calcium (nanometer calcium carbonate) mainly rely on import.
