The global talc market is projected to reach USD 3.29 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.9% between 2016 and 2021. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for talc reinforced plastic parts from the automobile industry. Talc plays a key role in increasing the stiffness, thermal conductivity, impact resistance, rigidity, creep resistance, and chemical resistance in plastic parts used in the automobile industry, household appliances, electrical & electronic appliances, and engineering plastics.

The talc carbonate deposit type segment accounted for the largest share of the global talc market in 2015. There is a steep increase in the usage of talc obtained from the talc carbonate type of deposit. It has been found that the talc obtained from the talc carbonate type of deposit has higher purity than other types of deposits. The availability of the talc carbonate type of deposits is higher than the talc chlorite type of deposits.

Among all applications, plastics is the fastest-growing segment in the talc market. There is a high demand for talc from the plastic industry as it acts as a reinforcing filler and increases the stiffness, impact resistance, thermal conductivity, rigidity, impact strength, creep resistance and chemical resistance of plastic products. It is mainly used in the production of automobile parts, household appliances, electrical & electronic appliances and engineering plastic products. The paper & pulp application segment is the second-largest as there is a high demand for paper, board, offset paper, and color paper around the globe.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global talc market in 2015, and is expected to continue its dominance till 2021. China, India, Japan, and South Korea led the Asia-Pacific market in 2015. The market in China is projected to grow at the highest CAGR among all countries in the Asia-Pacific region between 2016 and 2021.

Talc Market

The factors inhibiting the growth of the global talc market are, slow economic recovery of the European countries and stringent environmental and utilization norms for talc by various governments and associations. Key market players operating in the global market, such as Imerys SA (France), Mondo Minerals (Netherlands), Minerals Technologies Inc. (U.S.), IMI FABI Talc Company (Italy), American Talc Company (U.S.), Golcha Minerals (India) Pvt. Ltd., Magnesita Refratarios SA (Brazil), Nippon Talc Co., Ltd. (Japan), among others, have adopted various strategies to increase their market shares. Agreements, new product launches, expansions, acquisitions, and research & development are some of the key strategies adopted by market players to achieve growth in the global market.
