Calcium chloride, a platform chemical, is used in a wide range of applications such as de-icing & dust control, oil and gas, construction, food, and medicine. The functional property of calcium chloride to decrease the freezing point of water makes it an important compound in colder regions. Its usage as a deicing agent helps reduce the number of accidents occurring due to accumulation of snow and ice on roads. Other properties of calcium chloride such as dust control agent, desiccant, and preservative are also expected to contribute to market growth. High demand for calcium chloride in the oil and gas industry is likely to drive the demand for calcium chloride, especially in Asia and the Middle East.
