The global calcium formate market size is projected to reach USD 628.5 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. Increasing cement production is likely to emerge as a central growth driver for this market, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that 4.1Gt of cement was produced worldwide in 2019, with China accounting for nearly 55% of the global production, followed by India at 8%. By 2030, according to the World Cement Association, China’s production is forecasted to contract to 35%, while India’s is set to double to 16%. These changing dynamics augur well for this market as calcium formate is an essential component in cement manufacturing. This compound acts as a setting accelerator for cement, working as an additive to boost strength of the cement mortar. Thus, rising demand for cement, especially in developing economies, will provide the necessary fuel for the growth of the market for calcium formate.
