The global talc market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 2.68 billion in 2018 to USD 3.35 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2018 to 2023. Talc is also used as a coating agent in rotogravure and offset papers, wherein it improves the runnability of offset papers and the quality of finished papers. It is also used to improve the quality and productivity of certain specialty papers, such as colored papers and labels. Among regions, Asia Pacific is projected to lead the talc market in terms of value. The growth of the Asia Pacific talc market can be attributed to rapid industrialization, growth of the automotive sector, and increasing demand for talc from the cosmetics & personal, ceramics, paints & coatings, and pharmaceuticals end-use industries in the region.

The talc carbonate segment is projected to be the largest deposit type segment of the talc market from 2018 to 2023. Talc carbonate ores are processed to remove associated minerals to produce pure talc concentrate. Talc carbonate ores are generally found in metamorphic ultramafic rocks.

The plastics segment is estimated to be the largest end-use industry segment of the talc market in 2018. Talc is used as an anti-blocking agent in polyethylene and helps restore mechanical properties of recycled plastics. Talc is also used as a nucleating agent in biopolymers and semi-crystalline polymers. In the automotive industry, the use of talc in polymer compounds helps stabilize fenders and develop dashboards that are highly scratch-resistant. Talc also increases the modulus of elasticity, impact resistance, dimensional stability, color consistency, scratch resistance, creep strength, and low abrasion in plastic components.

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for talc during the forecast period. The growing middle-class populations with high disposable incomes and increasing demand for consumer goods and consumer durables are major factors contributing to the growth of the talc market in this region.

Talc Market

Slow growth of the pulp & paper industry, and lawsuits filed against the production and use of talc are the key restraints in the talc market.

Key players operating in the talc market include Imerys (France), Mondo Minerals (Netherlands), Minerals Technologies (US), IMI Fabi (Italy), Golcha Minerals (India), and Nippon Talc (Japan), among others. These companies focus on enhancing their product portfolios to grow in the talc market.
