The Europe calcium carbonate market is expected to grow from US$ 10,063.54 million in 2021 to US$ 13,559.61 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2028. The rising demand from the paper industry is expected to surge the Europe calcium carbonate market growth. Calcium carbonate for industrial applications is available in two different forms: Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC). The GCC has high whiteness and improves the durability of printed material. Both these types GCC and PCC are used as a paper filler to give brightness of about ~86–95% and ~90–97%, respectively. They also improve the shine, porosity, printability, and opacity of the paper. PCC features more retention capacity than other paper fillers, enabling it for broader application scope in the paper industry. Paper is mainly used in printing and writing media, newsprints, packaging, and paper board. In packaging applications, it is mainly used for making corrugated boxes, paperboard cartons, and paper bag. Being cost-effective, more efficient, and environmentally friendly, the demand for paper is increasing from packaging industry, which supports growth of the Europe calcium carbonate market. Further, Europe is witnessing a steady decline in paper for writing and printing applications, which is mainly attributed to growing trend of digitization, rising use of e-readers, and increasing paperless operations at different offices. The decline in the demand in Europe has led paper producers to diversify their businesses by focusing more on paper packaging segment. The continued demand for paper for different applications in various countries is boosting the Europe calcium carbonate market growth.
The UK and Russia are the hardest-hit countries by the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by France, Spain, Italy, and Germany across Europe.These countries have suffered an economic hit due to the lack of revenue from various industries.

Other countries in Europe have implemented drastic measures and travel restrictions, including partial closing of their borders.The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the production operations of the plastics industry in Europe.

This outbreak has also affected the supply chain of raw materials required for the construction industry to a greater extent, eventually disrupting the overall manufacturing processes and research and development activities and further impacting the calcium carbonate market growth. The plastic and construction industries started to recover in Q3 2020 with the downward trend of COVID-19 cases in a few of the European countries.
The paper segment led the Europe calcium carbonate market based on application in 2020.The demand for calcium carbonate is significantly high from pulp and paper business as they are used as a filter and a pigment, resulting in a whiter, higher quality pigment than other minerals.

Kaolin clay, calcium carbonate, titanium dioxide, and talc are four commonly used minerals in paper filling and coating.Both titanium dioxide and talc, on the other hand, are used in small amounts for specific applications requiring high whiteness and opacity, as well as pitch control.

As a result, calcium carbonates and kaolin clay are the workhorse minerals used in the paper industry today.Calcium carbonate is added to a pulp suspension during the papermaking process.

The inclusion of carbon dioxide in the pulp suspension significantly slows the dissolution of calcium carbonate in the papermaking system. The invention also includes methods for producing paper or board using solid calcium carbonate as a filler or pigment in papermaking systems. Owing to its high brightness, calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is widely used as a filler or pigment in papermaking. Calcium carbonate is rarely soluble in alkaline circumstances above a pH of around 8, but it is soluble when attacked by acids such as sulfuric acid and alum. The advantages of calcium carbonate, such as high brightness and higher quality pigment, are expected to increase its demand from the paper industry, which will, in turn, drive the Europe calcium carbonate market.
