The carbonate is a salt of carbonic acid. It is a polyatomic ion which has one carbon atom enclosed with three oxygen atoms. It is also referred as carbonate ester. Most of the salt of carbonates is insoluble in water. Carbonates are primarily used in the manufacturing of detergents, cements and ceramics. The carbonate salt generally decomposes on heating leaving oxide of metal. The organic carbonates are also known as carbonate esters. These carbonate esters are also used in the batteries and chemical industry. The most common types of carbonate are sodium carbonate, calcium carbonate, potassium carbonate, and iron carbonate.
Market Size and Forecast
The global carbonate market is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR throughout 2018-2027. It is projected to reach significant market size by 2027. The increasing demand for the carbonate salt from various end-user industries is anticipated to increase the market size of the global carbonate market over the forecast period.
The global carbonate market can be segmented on the basis of type and end-user industries. On the basis of type, it is segmented into iron carbonate, sodium carbonate, potassium carbonate and calcium carbonate. Sodium carbonate is mainly used as a cleaning agent .It is also used as bleaching agent, fillers, solvents and solid separation agents. On the basis of end-use industries, it is sub-segmented into paints and coatings, detergents and cleaners, dyes and pigments, glass and ceramics, adhesives and sealants and paper and pulp. Paints and coatings sub-segment is anticipated to be the fastest growing sub-segment on the account of large scale usage of carbonate salts in the paints and coatings industry.
By region, global carbonate market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold the largest market share of global carbonate market on the account of rapid industrialization which increases the demand for the paints and coatings, detergents and cleaners, dyes and pigments in the region. This in turn leads to the rising demand for carbonate during the forecast period.
