North America Talc Market Size and Forecasts (2020 – 2030), Regional Share, Trends, and Growth Opportunity Analysis Report Coverage: By Deposit Type (Talc Chlorite and Talc Carbonate) and End Use Industry (Plastics, Pulp & Paper, Ceramics, Paints & Coatings, Rubber, Pharmaceuticals, Food, and Others)

The North America talc market is expected to grow from US$ 211.23 million in 2022 to US$ 293.24 million by 2030; it is expected to register a CAGR of 4.2% from 2022 to 2030.

Talc is a hydrated magnesium silicate. The transformation of high magnesium rocks by siliceous hydrothermal fluids is a result of the formation of Talc deposits. Most of the talc is derived from the alteration of dolomite or ultramafic intrusive rocks. It is always found in combination with other minerals. Carbonates and chlorite are the most common sources of minerals. Each talc deposit has a unique morphology and mineralogy, but all types of talc exhibit the following unique properties such as softness, water repellency, chemical inertness, platyness, and an affinity for organic substances. These properties provide talc as a multi-functional filler and process enabler in a variety of applications, from plastics to paper, and ceramics to paint. Talc is an anti-sticking agent, anti-caking agent, lubricant, carrier, thickener, strengthening filler, smooth filler, and adsorbent.

Since talc has a high-temperature resistance, it enhances the thermal shock resistance of ceramics and reduces fractures. In addition, talc lowers the firing temperature of ceramics, enabling the creation of products with lower energy consumption and reduced production costs. In the context of the ceramic industry, this is particularly important as it can lead to increased competitiveness and profitability for ceramic manufacturers. Talc is a key component in ceramic glaze and engobes, enhancing ceramic products’ visual appeal and functionality. It provides a smooth, glossy finish and helps improve the workability of glaze formulations. This is particularly advantageous in the production of decorative and functional ceramics, such as tiles, sanitaryware, and tableware, where aesthetics and surface finish are crucial selling points. As the ceramic industry continues to expand in North America, fueled by demand for construction materials, consumer goods, and advanced technical ceramics, it is expected to drive further North America talc market growth.

Talc is used as a filler in plastic. Talc imparts various benefits, including higher stiffness and enhanced dimensional stability to products such as polypropylene, vinyl, polyethylene, nylon, and polyester. These materials are used in automotive parts (under‐the‐hood, dashboard, bumper interiors, and exterior trim), household appliances, and white goods. Talc is also used for linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) anti-blocking and as a nucleating agent in semicrystalline polymers. In polypropylene food packaging applications, talc is a highly effective reinforcing filler. In the pulp & paper industry, talc is used as a paper filler, since it has a minimal negative effect on sheet strength but improves ink receptivity by a large margin. It also enhances opacity and brightness and reduces gloss. Talc can be used in paper recycling and the new production of paper, pulp, and cardboard as filler. Talc use improves the properties of the finished products and reduces production costs. Talc is organophilic and absorbs impurities such as pitch and resin particles from the process. Hence, talc is used as a cleaner for the wet-end system of a paper machine. It also prevents agglomeration. Therefore, it improves the functioning of a paper machine, further driving the North America talc market growth. Furthermore, talc is primarily used in industrial paint and coatings, printing inks, wood lacquers, fillers, and other coatings. The platy shape of talc particles improves the suspension of solids in a can and helps the liquid paint adhere to a wall without sagging. In anticorrosion primers, talc improves corrosion resistance and paint adhesion. They are also used in inks, jointing compounds, putties, and adhesives. Talc has anticorrosion quality and is used as a corrosive agent in the paint film. It is also used as a hydrophobic mineral pigment. Talc assists in limiting water penetration and reducing corrosion, caulking, peeling, and blistering. Talc promotes adhesion due to its lamellarity and chemical inertness, increasing the paint’s durability. Moreover, the talc’s texture assists in minimizing the binder system’s shrinkage during the paint film’s curing and thus helps promote the film’s adhesion to the surface. All these factors are driving North America talc market growth.
