The carbonates contribute over 65% to the global form of talc, followed by silicate and other forms of talc. The properties of rocks play an important role in determining the application of carbonate in various fields.

The carbonate deposits in the market will grow due to their wide usages in paint and coatings, construction, cosmetics, and personal care industries. The deposits depend on the transformation of existing rocks under hydrothermal activity. Talc chlorites are widely used in the ceramics industry to improve thermal shock resistance.

The Paper industry is one of the significant segments where talc is widely used. The recent trends indicate that the pulp and paper industry is continuing to boom in the upcoming years. The growth of e-commerce activities is expected to increase the demand for packaging material and will create growth opportunities for the pulp and paper industry during the forecast period.

The overall development in infrastructure in APAC is expected to grow around 44% by 2022, which will accelerate the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

In India, Rajasthan is a hub for talc mining, processing, and trade, with 49% of talc reserves followed by around 29% in Uttarakhand. Being a leader in eco-innovation and construction with sustainability, infrastructural developments in Denmark in the European region will be high during the forecast period. The growth of the construction industry can drive the scope for talc in the European region.


Imerys, Elementis Plc, Mineral Technologies Inc, IMI FABI SPA, Liaoning, and AIHAI Talc Co., Ltd are the major vendors in the global talc market. With the presence of global and domestic vendors, the industry is highly fragmented.

Mergers and acquisitions are benefitting the companies over the competition. Manufacturers with high financial and technical resources are posing a threat to the players. In 2020, the Toronto-based mining company Magris Resources Canada Inc acquired all the assets of Imerys Talc’s (America Inc, Vermont Inc, and Canada Inc) for USD 223 million.

Talc producers in the world are investing in R&D to create innovation in the industry. The Chinese producers dominate the world market, contributing more than 50% of production in terms of volume.
