  • Talc is a rock known as soapstone or steatite, composed of varying proportions of the mineral talc, often integrated with other minerals such as chlorite and carbonate. Talc is an industrial raw material used in a wide range of applications like cosmetics, paints, paper, plastics, rubber, cables, ceramics, etc. According to Researcher, talc's global market is expected to witness a moderate growth rate during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the global talc market include increasing demand from the paints and coatings industry coupled with the plastics and rubber industry among other applications. However, the availability of substitutes of talc and awareness related to the carcinogenic nature of talcum powder are likely to restrain the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Further, in China, talc is found in 15 provinces, with Liaoning, Shandong, Guangxi, Jiangxi, and Qinghai as the prominent areas that account for more than 90% of the total reserves.
