Pune, India, Jan. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global lime market size is expected to showcase significant growth by reaching USD 49.11 billion by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 2.5% between 2020 and 2027. The increasing demand for lime for several chemical applications in the chemical industry and the stringent legal framework for treating wastewater is attributed to the growth. Fortune Business Insights, in its latest report, titled, “Lime Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Quick Lime, and Hydrated Lime), Application (Agriculture, Building Material, Mining & Metallurgy, Water Treatment, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.”, mentions that the market stood at USD 41.84 billion in 2019.


Suspension of Mining Activities to Disrupt Supply Chain amid COVID-19

The mining of lime is critical because of its prominence for end-user industrial applications such as construction, metallurgy, and chemicals. However, the lockdown imposed by several government agencies globally has led to the halting of several mining activities that disrupt the supply chain of the product. This is likely to lead to restricted market growth in the near future. However, lifting of restrictions imposed on the mining and construction activities by the government while adhering to stringent social-distancing norms is expected to favor the market growth.

Key DRIVING FACTORS

Stringent Environmental Protection Regulation to Promote Growth

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about half of the total world population is likely to be residing in water-stressed areas by 2025. The growing incidence of contamination due to industrial waste effluents is leading to the transmission of several diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid, and others. Therefore, to reduce the impact of wastewater, government agencies have implemented stringent regulations to improve drinking water standards. This has led to the growing adoption of hydrated lime that aids in changing the acidity of wastewater and removes toxins such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Additionally, the surging demand for quicklime to manufacture vital chemicals such as sodium alkali, cyanamide, glycol, and others is expected to boost the global lime market growth in the forthcoming years.


SEGMENTATION

Agriculture Segment Held 3.4% Market Share in 2019

Based on application, the agriculture segment held a market share of about 3.4% in 2019 and is expected to showcase considerable growth during the forecast period. This is ascribable to factors such as the growing demand for calcium hydroxide to improve the pH value of soil, leading to higher yields of superior quality crops across the globe.


REGIONAL INSIGHTS

Asia-Pacific to Remain at Forefront; China Holding Prominent Position in Steel Industry to Aid Growth

Among all the regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain dominant and hold the highest position in the global market during the forecast period. This dominance is attributable to China's dominance in the steel industry that is boosting the demand for this metal in the region. For instance, according to the Radio Free Asia data, China is likely to dominate the global steel market amid the novel coronavirus backed by the production of over 92.2 million metric tons of crude steel in May 2020.

The market in Europe is expected to experience significant growth due to the rapid-paced expansion of steel manufacturing industries to support the region's automotive sector between 2020 and 2027.


COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

Industry Players Focus on Facility Expansion to Brighten Their Market Prospects

The global lime market is experiencing stiff competition from major industry players focusing on adopting organic and inorganic strategies to gain a competitive edge over their rivals. The expansion of facilities to expand their product portfolio and cater to the high demand from several industrial applications is likely to favor the market growth.


Key Industry Development:

October 2019 - Graymont announced the commencement of the new state-of-the-art production facility located at Rexton, Michigan. According to the company, the new capacity will increase the production of several lime and limestone products to cater to consumer demand across the Great Lakes area in the U.S.
