Global Calcium Peroxide Market


Calcium Peroxide (Calcium dioxide) is a white or pale yellow odorless material and has a granular form. It is produced by adding hydrogen peroxide to calcium hydroxide (Slaked lime). There has been an increasing demand for calcium peroxide, in the pulp & paper industry as a bleaching agent and in the agricultural sector as an oxidizing agent. The chemical releases oxygen into the soil and improves productivity. Calcium peroxide is also critical for the food industry as it acts as a food additive and is known as E930.

Market Dynamics:

Here we will analyze the market dynamics such as drivers, trends and industry-specific challenges for the calcium peroxide market.


In the pulp & paper industry, Calcium peroxide is utilized to increase the brightness of the paper. It is further utilized in the paper recycling process for ink removal purposes. In the agriculture industry, the growing demand for oxidizing agents (calcium peroxide) helps to maintain soil quality and produces a high return. Pulp bleaching is an important application which representsmore than 69% of the global revenues.


In the recent years, there has been an increasing trend of adding whitening agents in toothpaste. This is due to growing consumer awareness about the importance of strong white teeth. Calcium Peroxide is used in manufacturing hydrogen peroxide which acts as a whitening agent to improve oral health. This trend in the oral health care industry will positively increase. The demand for hydrogen peroxide accounts for over 15% of total global revenues from the chemical industry.

Restraint & Challenges:

But the chemical poses a potential hazardous effect which affects wildlife and might restrain the market growth in the future.

Market Segmentation:

The market is segmented by End-User Industry:
In 2016, Calcium peroxide had the largest market share in the end user industry. It is used as an intermediate in the production of perhydrates and an organic peroxide, which is further used in the chemical industry as a solvent.
The market is segmented by Grade:
It is further bifurcated into Food Grade and Industrial Grade.
The market is segmented by Application:
Depending on the application of Calcium Peroxide, its market is further segmented into different industries such as Baking, Aquaculture, Environmental Restoration, Consumer Product Applications and Agriculture Industry.
Calcium peroxide plays a major role in the food industry as a dough conditioner in manufacturing bread and cakes. Pulp bleaching sector holds over 70% of the global market share. Emerging markets including India and China (major rice producers) have witnessed significant demand as they are among the important ingredients in pre-sowing treatments of crops including rice. This has increased the demand for calcium peroxide in the countries’ agricultural sector. It aids in curbing environmental pollution by maintaining environmental health by restoring groundwater and soil which has been polluted by the excessive use of hydrocarbons over the last few years.
Water treatment is another key application in North America and Western Europe and has witnessed a significant rise due to the strict environmental regulations. The textile segment is another major contributor due to the use of the chemical as a bleaching agent.

Geographic analysis:

In 2016, Asia-Pacific was enlisted as the provincial market for calcium peroxide. Aspects, such as utilization of pre-sowing treatments in the agricultural sector in China and India, accredited to the growth. In North America and Western Europe, calcium peroxide is mainly used in water and soil treatment. These regions have also witnessed a strong demand for hydrogen peroxide on account of its applications as a bleaching agent in cosmetics, cleaners, and detergents.

Key Players:

Some of the major players in the market include:
• Solvay SA
• Arkema Group
• Chang Chun Petrochemical Co. Ltd
• Dow Chemical
• Nippon Co
BASF SE and Dow Chemical had collaborated to develop HPPD technology which utilizes hydrogen peroxide for the production of propylene oxide. This will help increase its utilization in various applications.
