Calcium phosphate, the compound primarily found in the bones and teeth of humans and animals, is of nutritional importance. Tricalcium phosphate is essential for bone development as it is easily absorbed in the body. Calcium phosphate is widely used in bone regenerating procedures as it showcases osteoconductive and osteoinductive features.

Another form of calcium phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, is mainly used as a leavening acid that is found in baked goods. It is used along with baking soda to provide volume and aeration in cookies and cakes. With such a wide application range, the consumption of calcium phosphate will possibly increase over the projected timeframe.

On this note, the calcium phosphate market is anticipated to register a value of USD 0.9 million by 2025.

Growing usage of calcium phosphate as an active pharmaceutical ingredient

Calcium phosphate is extensively used in the pharmaceutical industry for producing solid oral dosages. They are also used as fillers for bulking up formulations. One of the biggest advantages of using calcium phosphate is its compatibility with most known drug substances. This is primarily due to its exceptional chemical stability.

Excipients based on calcium phosphates have many functional characteristics making them an ideal candidate for the process of direct compression. They also showcase good flowability characteristics owing to their favorable particle shape and size.

Calcium phosphates allow regulating the flow patterns of powders with poor flowability. This helps in relatively easy production of tablet mixtures without forming any granules. It also helps in reducing the size of the capsule or tablet without changing their weight. Owing to these advantages, the usage of calcium phosphate in the pharmaceutical sector is likely to increase throughout the stipulated timeframe.

Growing usage of calcium phosphate in animal feeds

Minerals are crucial in the formation of teeth, bones and other structural components of animals. But these minerals should be supplied from the feeds provided to the animals. The feeds have variable mineral content depending on its presence in the soil in which it was grown. Monocalcium and dicalcium phosphates are popular choices for feed supplementation. Dicalcium phosphate is used as an additive in animal feeds. It has a reasonable Ca: P ratio that is reasonable for standard animal feeds.

Maintaining the quality of animal feeds is important in providing a healthy diet to breed animals for obtaining optimum by-products, especially their meat. There has been a growing need for meat consumption from across the world.

Citing an instance, the volume of meat production is predicted to reach over 460 million tons by 2050. With such an escalating demand, the animal feed industry will need to produce more feed to satisfy the demands of livestock industry, thus prompting more insistence for additives like calcium phosphate to improve its quality.

Rising instances of ortho disorders in Europe to influence the production of calcium phosphate

Rapid urbanization, lack of exercise and an overall stressful lifestyle have severely affected the European population. This has increased the prevalence of diseases ranging from cardiovascular disorders to ortho and dental disorders.

In addition, there has been a significant rise in the geriatric population in the region who are majorly dealing with issues like osteoporosis, arthritis owing to calcium and phosphorous deficiencies in their bones. This is the reason many patients are recommended tablets and capsules consisting of calcium phosphate as a primary ingredient. Taking the aforementioned factors into consideration, the market for calcium phosphate will possibly proliferate over the projected timeframe.
