End-User - Segment Analysis

Metallurgical Industry has been the primary market for Calcium Fluoride. Calcium fluoride is found in the form of mineral fluorite which is used in applications such as aluminum metallurgy, welding agents, optical and others. The demand for aluminum products from the automotive and aerospace industry will propagate the calcium fluorite market. Due to increase in the global middle-class spending and absence of effective alternatives to fossil fuels, the consumption of Calcium Fluoride has always been considerably high in automotive industry in comparison to other industries.

China has the largest automotive industry in the world and one of the largest civilian aircraft markets. According to OICA, China held 41 percent share in global passenger cars sales in 2022.  India also has excellent potential for automotive industry growth in the future. The country's automotive industry experienced 24% growth in production in 2022, over the previous year. With more than 10 million vehicles traveling on the U.S. roads, which is 11.8 percent of the total vehicles in the world as reported by the OICA in 2022, there will be tremendous demand for Calcium Fluoride in the automotive industry.

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC dominated the Calcium Fluoride market, followed by North America and Europe. The calcium fluoride market growth in Asia Pacific is augment to grow owing to increase in automotive production and rapid industrialisation in the region. The industrialisation was supported by exports, and coordinated economic policies across sectors and over time. Due to increased demand for glass from the construction industry over the forecast period, the North American region is expected to see fair growth. Additionally, substantial growth is also anticipated in the European region as a result of increased demand for the product during the forecast period in welding joints, alumina products and brake lining.

Drivers – Calcium Fluoride Market

Rise in demand for aluminum products in end use industry

Aluminum has many uses across various end use industries including, Automotive, Aerospace, Marine, Packaging, Construction, Consumer durables, electronics, machinery and others. Aluminum recovery from scrap has become an important component of the aluminum industry. According to International Energy Agency, aluminum sector’s total energy intensity has decreased by about 15% since last decade. The global primary aluminum production reached 70.5 million metric tons in 2023. According to the International Aluminum Institute (IAI), China accounted for over 41.6 million metric tons of aluminum in 2023. The future of the aerospace industry is bright and will be characterized by strong aircraft demand for the foreseeable future. The number of commercial passenger and cargo aircraft fleet, as well as the annual number of passengers, are forecast to double over the next two decades. The increase in aircraft fleet will propel the consumption of aluminum in the production of fleets.

Challenges – Calcium Fluoride Market

Alternatives of calcium fluoride can hamper the market

Fluorosilic acid is used for the production of aluminum fluoride (AlF3), but AlF3 derived from fluorosilic acid is not readily substituted by AlF3 produced from fluorspar due to different physical properties. Fluorosilicic acid has been used to produce hydrogen fluoride, but this practice has not been widely adopted. The preferred product is currently aqueous hydrogen fluoride rather than fluorspar. Aluminum smelting dross, borax, calcium chloride, iron oxides, manganese ore, silica sand, and titanium dioxide have been used as substitutes for fluorspar fluxes.
