Global Lime Market: Overview

Lime is derived from heating limestone. Lime has basically two product type: quick lime and slaked lime. Manufacturing of lime involves several processes such as pulverizing, crushing, hydrating, and heating. Lime is used in various industries such as chemical, metallurgical, construction, environmental, agriculture, etc. It is used as flux in steel manufacturing to remove impurities such as sulfur, silica, and phosphorus. Lime is one of the key raw materials used in construction. Due to its anti-stripping and binding properties it is highly preferred in construction industry.

Global Lime Market: Drivers and Trends

Rising construction industry is therefore expected to propel the lime market during the forecast period. Demand for lime is projected to increase significantly in the next few years owing to the rise in demand for lime in chemical intermediated segment. It is used in the production of various chemicals including calcium carbide, sodium alkali, citric acid, cyanimide, and petrochemicals. Increase in Demand in Wastewater Treatment is also anticipated to boost the overall market of lime during the forecast period. Asia Pacific dominates the lime market in terms of production and demand. Countries such as China, India, and Japan, are expected to be the key consumers of lime. Europe is the second largest consuming region. Air pollution is one of the major factors expected to hamper the lime market during the forecast period. Also, availability of alternatives materials is anticipated to adversely affect the lime market in the next few years.
