Global Calcium Citrate Market: Introduction

Calcium citrate is one of the two main forms of calcium supplements prevailing in food industry. Calcium citrate contains varying amounts of the mineral calcium referred to as elemental calcium. Calcium citrate is white powder, used as buffer, coagulant, Chelan, calcareous, and intensified agent. Generally, calcium citrate contains 21% elemental calcium in its compound form.  Moreover, calcium citrate is the calcium salt manufactured and extracted from citric acid. Importantly, calcium is one of the most found mineral in the human body, present mainly in teeth and bones.

Thus, growing health consciousness encourage the demand for calcium citrate as it is an essential dietary element required in optimal amounts for good bone health, efficient nerve, cardiovascular health, and muscle function. Subsequently, the aim of the study is to analyze the most recent trends, dynamics, and potential strategies in the global calcium citrate market.

Global Calcium Citrate Market: Dynamics           

Increasing awareness for health, nutrition, and food safety are among the key market influencers for calcium citrate market. Food safety measures in the assessed countries supported by prevalence of processed food are also encouraging the demand for calcium citrate. In addition, calcium citrate possess a higher bioavailability than most of the other common and less expensive counterparts, like calcium carbonate. An aging population across the world, predominantly in Japan will change the dynamics of healthcare spending. Increased consumer awareness for preventative healthcare is expected to propel the demand for calcium citrate in the near-term.

Calcium lactate has similar effects as calcium citrate which directly impacts the consumption growth of calcium citrate. Availability in different micronized granulations, low reactivity, and better compressibility compared to other calcium salts are the cited properties of calcium citrate making it an ideal choice for dietary supplements. Federal regulations and compliance with the environment is expected to continue amid both increased consumer interest in health. This will likely to impact the pace of the global calcium citrate market. Lastly, intense price competition in the calcium citrate market owing to hefty production in China increases the industry rationalization.
