The global calcium carbideunsaturated polyester resins market was valued at $11.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $18.2 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2030.

Calcium carbide is a grayish-black lump or crystalline (sandlike) powder with a garlic-like odor. The other name of calcium carbide is calcium acetylide. Furthermore, its chemical formula is CaC2. It is a compound used in industries for production. It is used to produce acetylene gas, as a reducing agent, and in steel manufacturing and metal cutting. It is harmful for human consumption.

Calcium-Carbide-Market

Calcium carbide is produced industrially by using calcium oxide and coke. It is used in the chemical industry for a variety of applications that include acetylene gas manufacturing and for the generation of acetylene in carbide lamps; chemicals manufacturing for fertilizer; and also in steelmaking. Steel is used in the construction industry because of its exceptional qualities like ductility and durability. It aids in the construction of earthquake-resistant structures. The increased use of high-speed trains in nations like China, Japan, and India has resulted in the development of special rails, which has increased carbon steel usage. As a result, demand for crude steel is predicted to boost the calcium carbide market growth during the forecast period.
