Based on deposit type, the talc carbonate deposit type segment is projected to lead the talc market during the forecast period. Carbonate is mainly composed of magnesite (magnesium carbonate) or dolomite (magnesium and calcium carbonate) while talc carbonate contains traces of chlorite. It has been found that there are greater deposits of talc carbonate across the globe as compared to those of talc chlorite. After their extraction from mines, ores of talc carbonate are further processed to remove associated minerals and obtain pure talc concentrates.
Based on end-use industry, the plastics segment of the talc market is projected to lead the talc market during the forecast period. Talc is used in the plastics industry as a reinforcing filler for polypropylene and engineering thermoplastics, which are used to manufacture automotive parts, domestic appliances, electrical & electronics components, and food packaging.
The ceramics segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing end-use industry segment of the talc market. Talc is an excellent thermal shock resistant and fluxing agent; it is used in ceramics to improve the mechanical and optical properties of floor and wall tiles. It is also utilized in the production of large format tiles. Moreover, talc is used to improve the properties of catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters in the automotive ceramics cordierites.
The Asia Pacific talc market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the Asia Pacific talc market can be attributed to the increasing demand for talc from the automotive, cosmetics & personal care, and paints & coatings end-use industries in the region.
