Global Calcium Phosphate Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

The global calcium phosphate market is estimated to garner a revenue of USD1.7 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of USD 1.0 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing agriculture sector owing to the growing demand for agricultural food. By 2050, the demand for food is anticipated to rise anywhere from about 58% to approximately 97% across the globe. This growth in demand for food can be attributed to the growing population. Since, the demand for food is growing, the use of bio-fertilizers is also estimated to increase, further boosting market growth.

However, the majority of soil management practices employed today rely on fertilizers with an inorganic chemical base, which poses a substantial risk to both human health and the environment. Given their potential contribution to food safety and sustainable crop production, the use of advantageous microorganisms as bio fertilizers has become of utmost importance in the agriculture industry. One of the most significant categories of these helpful microorganisms that significantly contributes to the synthesis of nutrients for crops is phosphate bio fertilizer. Hence, the demand for sustainable agriculture is estimated to be another major factor to boost the growth of the market.

Global Calcium Phosphate Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges Growth Drivers


  • Growth in Population - The population of the world is projected to rise by almost 2 billion people over the course of the next 30 years, from the present 8 billion to 9.7 billion in 2050, with a potential peak of roughly 10.4 billion in the middle of the 1980s. Future demands for food and water would increase owing to the growing global population. Hence, along with growing agriculture activity the drinking water treatment is also estimated to boost. Phosphates are water treatment chemicals used to maintain water quality (reduce lead and copper levels, inhibit corrosion, scale, and biofilm) in the distribution system as well as to address specific water quality issues brought on by inorganic contaminants (such as iron, manganese, calcium, etc.) in ground water supplies. Hence, the demand for calcium phosphate is growing further boosting the market growth.

  • Rise in Demand for Nutritional Food -  In America, about 49% of people say they actively strive to eat healthily, as per the reported data.

  • Surge in Number of People Suffering from Tooth or Dental Problem - According to the WHO Global Oral Health Status Report (2022), about 3.5 billion people worldwide suffer from oral diseases, with middle-income nations accounting for three out of every four of these cases. An estimated 2 billion people worldwide are thought to have permanent tooth decay, and 514 million children have primary tooth decay.

  • Growth in Demand for Milk Based Products - Milk and milk products are consumed by more than 5 billion people globally, most of whom reside in poor nations. Sequestered calcium phosphate nanoclusters function as substructures in casein micelles to generate a stable fluid in milk. As a result, milk is estimated to have calcium and phosphate concentrations that are far higher than those elements' solubility. Hence with the growing demand for milk-based products the market is estimated to grow.

  • Upsurge in Population of Cattle - Around 2 billion head of cattle were present worldwide in 2022, an increase from about 995 million in 2021. Hence, owing to this the demand for animal feed is anticipated to boost.


  • Side Effects of Calcium Phosphate on Health – Calcium phosphate has various side effects on health. It leads to nausea, constipation, and vomiting in most people. Moreover, it causes rise in blood calcium which could further result into tiredness, loss of appetite and kidney stone or kidney failure in rare cases. However, people having kidney stone or any kidney related complication are suggested to avoid consumption of calcium phosphate as it could sever the pain. Hence, this factor is estimated to hinder the growth of the market.
  • Stringent Government Regulations Related to the Environment
  • Lack of Research for the Different Use of Calcium Phosphate

Global Calcium Phosphate Market Segmentation

The global calcium phosphate market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product into monocalcium phosphate, di-calcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, and calcium acid phosphate. Out of which, the di-calcium phosphate segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the growing demand for water all across the globe. The total annual water demand for all applications worldwide was expected to be about 4,600 km3 in 2019 and 5,500–6,000 km3 in 2050, an increase of 20–30%. Hence the use of di-calcium phosphate is estimated to boots in water treatment owing to its sorbent nature. Moreover, growing adoption of dogs is also estimated to boost the segment growth. Dogs require the mineral phosphorus, also known as di-calcium phosphate, for strong bones, teeth, and a healthy metabolism. As phosphorus is quickly absorbed by the small intestines, dogs only obtain the daily recommended amount of phosphorus from their diet. Dairy, meats, and grains are just a few of the food groups that include phosphorus. It is also a component of practically all commercial dog foods. Hence, owing to the growing demand for dog food, the market is estimated to grow.

The global calcium phosphate market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-use into food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, drinking water treatment, animal feed. Amongst which, the animal feed segment is anticipated to have a significant growth over the forecast period, backed by growing pet adoption. The food which is served to animals usually contain calcium phosphate. Animal growth and development depend heavily on the mineral calcium and phosphorus. Phosphorus is the second most important mineral for animals' health, right after calcium. Moreover, low phosphorus increases the risk of metabolic problems, urinary illnesses, and intestinal disorders in animals, while low calcium increases lethargy, weakness, and susceptibility to illness. The deficiency in calcium and phosphorus is fully met by offering livestock or poultry animals adequate calcium phosphate supplements. Among different types of calcium phosphate products, di-calcium phosphate products are extensively used in animal’s diet.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
