The global oyster shell calcium market is expected to surpass US$ 18.95 million by 2030 exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period (2022-2030). 

Oyster shell calcium are projected to remain a preferred choice among the pharmaceuticals and food industries, in the pharmaceutical industry oyster shell calcium is used as calcium enrichment supplement and in food industry it is used to increase the shelf life of food products like noodles, tofu, sausages, and fried chicken. Owing to their low price and easy availability through various channels such as oyster farming and waste generated from sea food restaurants, which discards oyster shell. Increasing oyster cultivations and government subsidies by the various countries such as china, India and Japan provided for the oyster farming are promoting the production of oyster shells for various end user applications such as in animal feed and in personal care industries. Oyster shells are a major and cheaper source of calcium carbonate. Animals need calcium carbonate for bone development, nerve function, and to produce milk and eggs. Calcium carbonate contains the element calcium. Feed that is grown on a farm such as cereals and cattle feed, is generally not sufficient to provide for all of an animal's calcium requirements. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, calcium is the essential dietary mineral for animals. Calcium is an essential component of bone, cartilage and the crustacean exoskeleton.

Global Oyster Shell Calcium Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic 

The global oyster shell calcium market has been negatively impacted to some extent due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This can be attributed to the shortage of labor for the oyster farming facilities, lack of transportation facilities and closure of restaurants due to the strict government restrictions. There was a high demand from the pharmaceutical as well as animal feed industries for oyster shell calcium, however, due to the inconvenience in the supply chain and transportation for the industries were unable to fulfill the demand. However, resumption of international trade and easing of trade restrictions for the transport and traders are expected to generate demand for oyster shell calcium in the future years.
