The global calcium carbide market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.6%. One of the main drivers for this is the increasing demand and production of steel in the world. According to World Steel Association estimates, in 2018, crude steel production reached 1,808.6 million tons globally. Moreover, the worldwide demand for steel is projected to reach 1,681 million tons in 2019, which will substantially expand the global calcium carbide market size in the forecast period. Calcium carbide is a crucial component in the production of steel as the compound is used as a desulfurizing and reducing agent. Thus, rising steel production, especially in China, Japan, and India will cause a spike in the global calcium carbide market demand.

North America to Generate High Revenue; Asia-Pacific to Boast a Sturdy Growth Rate
Having generated a revenue of USD 78.5 million in 2018, North America is projected to hold a major portion in the global calcium carbide market share during the forecast period. The main reason for this being the growing demand for calcium carbide across industries in the region. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest growth rate on account of rapidly developing chemical industries in India and China, along with rising steel production in Japan. Additionally, increasing demand for acetylene in PVC manufacturing in China is anticipated to give the extra push to the global market growth in the coming decade.
