The global calcium carbideunsaturated polyester resins market was valued at $11.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $18.2 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2030.

COVID-19 pandemic outbreak across the globe has resulted in decline in demand for calcium carbide from chemical, metallurgy, and food industries amid government imposed lock down measures and disrupted supply chain.

Calcium carbide is a grayish-black lump or crystalline (sandlike) powder with a garlic-like odor. The other name of calcium carbide is calcium acetylide. Furthermore, its chemical formula is CaC2. It is a compound used in industries for production. It is used to produce acetylene gas, as a reducing agent, and in steel manufacturing and metal cutting. It is harmful for human consumption.

Calcium Carbide Market Growth Trends, Forecasts 2030 (1)

Calcium carbide is produced industrially by using calcium oxide and coke. It is used in the chemical industry for a variety of applications that include acetylene gas manufacturing and for the generation of acetylene in carbide lamps; chemicals manufacturing for fertilizer; and also in steelmaking. Steel is used in the construction industry because of its exceptional qualities like ductility and durability. It aids in the construction of earthquake-resistant structures. The increased use of high-speed trains in nations like China, Japan, and India has resulted in the development of special rails, which has increased carbon steel usage. As a result, demand for crude steel is predicted to boost the calcium carbide market growth during the forecast period.

The calcium carbide market size is segmented on the basis of application, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of application, the calcium carbide market is divided into acetylene gas, calcium cyanamide, reducing & dehydrating agent, desulfurizing & deoxidizing agent, and others. By end-use industry the market is classified into chemicals, metallurgy, pharmaceutical, food, and others. On the basis of region, the calcium carbide market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Presently, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the calcium carbide market, followed by LAMEA and Europe.

Major players operating in the global calcium carbide industry include Denka Company Limited, AlzChem, American Elements, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Carbide Industries LLC, KC Group, Merck KGaA, MCB Industries Sdn. Bhd., Mil-Spec Industries Corporation, and Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Inc.

Calcium Carbide Market, By Application

The acetylene gas segment accounted for the largest calcium carbide market share in 2020, while the desulfurizing and deoxidizing agent segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.5%. Acetylene is produced in acetylene production plants for a variety of industrial and commercial applications.
