Future Market Insights
Calcium Sulphate (CaSO4) is present in nature both as hydrated powder form and the anhydrous form. The anhydrous calcium sulphate is found principally in the mineral form as anhydrite, whereas the hydrated calcium sulphate is majorly found in the gypsum or alabaster. Calcium sulphate occurs as a white crystalline odourless powder with few impurities and its colour ranges from white to slightly yellow-white odourless powder and has a melting point of nearly 1,400°C (2,592°F), which makes it slightly water soluble at this temperature. Calcium sulphate is available in different forms such as selenite, stannite, satin spar, terra alba and light spar. On heating, the hydrated calcium sulphate lose about 1.5 water molecules leading to formation of the hemihydrate, CaSO4 (½)H20, commonly known as POP (Plaster of Paris). POP when added to water, forms a hard mass, which is later used in making plaster casts, moulds, quick-setting cements, wall plasters, and other inexpensive art objects. Calcium sulphate has many other uses except those mentioned above such as a soil conditioner, as a coloured pigment in white paints, as a filler, as a white cement and in paper industry as a coating agent, in manufacturing of sulphur and sulphuric acid, in zinc ores metallurgy, and in chemical laboratories as a drying agent, among others.
Global Calcium Sulphate Market: Drivers and Restraints
The global calcium sulphate market is primarily driven by its application in building materials such as wall plasters, quick setting cements, Plaster of Paris, as a filling agent, as a drying agent and it is also widely used in dentistry practises as a tool to form dental impression or casts. In agriculture sector calcium sulphate (gypsum) has beneficiary effect as a soil conditioner which helps improving the soildrainage, texture and aeration. In pharmaceutical sector calcium sulphate is used as aninactive tablet excipient product for forming immobilizing casts and also as an colour glaze. Calcium sulphate has different application in different forms of hydration such as selenite, hemihydrate, stannite, terra alba and light spar.

Global Calcium Sulphate Market: Region wise Outlook
The global calcium sulphate market is divided into seven regions, namely North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan and Middle East and Africa (MEA).In North America region U.S hold the major share in manufacturing of calcium sulphate followed by Europe. In APEJ region, china and India hold significant share in calcium sulphate, as it is widely used inactive ingredient in pharmaceutical drugs owing to its anti-caking properties, binding action in tablet formulation and also in building materials, as a desiccant (drying agent), in dental practises for making dental implants moulds, die and impressions.
