Global Calcium Carbide Market 2017-2021

About Calcium Carbide

Calcium carbide is an inorganic compound produced at a temperature of 3632 ⁰F. The reaction of lime and coke in an EAF containing graphite electrodes produces carbide, in which calcium carbide weighs around 80%-85%. The content of calcium carbide in the product is determined by the measure of acetylene produced on hydrolysis. The small fractions of impurities produce phosphine when the product is hydrolyzed. The release of phosphine indicates the presence of phosphide. The calcium carbide, in its pure form is white in color. The brown or grey color crystal in the rock form contains 80%-85% of calcium carbide and 15%-20% of calcium sulfide, calcium nitride, silicon carbide, and others. The traces of moisture release a pungent odor, similar to that of garlic.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global calcium carbide market to grow at a CAGR of 6.49% during the period 2017-2021 .

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Calcium Carbide Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global calcium carbide market: CARBIDE INDUSTRIES, Denka, MCB INDUSTRIES, Praxair technology, and SA Calcium Carbide

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aldon, AlzChem, APH Regency Power, DCM Shriram, Erdos Xinhua Silicon Metal Industry, Hudson Chemical, Iran carbide, Mahatma xinjiang energy, Mil-Spec Industries, Opta Minerals, and Zhongtai.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing demand for the use of energy and solid waste. The challenge to reduce the emission level of carbon dioxide from the construction industry has raised the demand for eco-friendly raw materials and products in the process of production. This goal is achieved by using the waste generated from industrial and agricultural activities. The eco-friendly alternative pozzolans like rice husk ash, fly ash, and silica fume are used as alternatives for cement. Calcium carbide residue (CCR) is the by-product, which is produced from the synthesis of acetylene gas. Research says that the by-products have enhanced the mechanical properties and the durability of acetylene. CCR is used as a substitute in concrete for portable cement.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand for PVC. Calcium carbide is used extensively in various applications, like automotive, construction and buildings, electrical and electronics, and flooring, due to its improved performance and excellent properties coupled with economical cost and availability. The production of PVC is dominated by the use of ethylene, globally; however, in China, it is highly dominated by the use of calcium carbide, because of the presence of abundant coal reserves. The growing need from various industries has led to the persistent expansion of capacity, and has increased the sales channels and exports that are driving the growth of the PVC market.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Ban on calcium carbide in the ripening of fruits. Calcium carbide produces acetylene on reacting with the moisture present in fruits and aids the ripening of fruits. Calcium carbide is used because it is cost-effective, easier to use and easily available, and yields quicker results. Calcium carbide is used in lumps on the sheet spread with fruits, and is left for 24-32 hours to ripen them.
