Global Calcium Hydroxide Market to Grow at a CAGR of 3.3% During the Period 2022-2027, Driven by Uses Across Sectors

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Calcium Hydroxide Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global calcium hydroxide market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% during the period 2022-2027, driven by uses in multiple sectors.

Applications across sectors (including construction, water treatment, food processing, and treatment of gases) are expected to drive the market for calcium hydroxide. North America, Europe, and Asia are expected to be key markets.

Calcium hydroxide has several applications in building and paving materials. It is found in mortar, plasters, and cements. Calcium hydroxide, also known as hydrated lime, helps enhance the durability of asphalt structures such as roads, highways, walkways, etc. In mortar, calcium hydroxide is mixed with sand and water to form a paste which is applied between bricks to bind them together. After the water in the paste evaporates, the calcium hydroxide and sand mixture forms a hard adhesive to hold the bricks together.

Calcium hydroxide is widely employed as a neutralizing agent. Being a base, it reacts with acids produced in industrial operations, the environment, and other settings. Very acidic soil can be treated with calcium hydroxide to make the soil more neutral. Similarly, exhaust gases released from factories can be treated with calcium hydroxide. For example, nitrogen and sulfur oxides in the gases are neutralized when passed through scrubbers carrying calcium hydroxide.

Other applications of calcium hydroxide include:

  • Removing hair from hides and neutralizing tanning solutions in the leather and hide tanning industry.
  • Purification of sugar solutions (like those in the production of fruit juices).
  • Component in particular types of pesticides.
  • Additive to lubricants and oil drilling fluids to enhance fluid viscosity.
  • Production of paints and waterproof coatings.
  • Food additive; acidity regulator. 
  • Accelerant in processes related to the manufacture of synthetic rubber and plastics. 
  • Food additive in poultry feed to enhance egg-shell strength. 
  • Whitewash [(a mixture made of calcium hydroxide, water, and chalk (calcium carbonate)] has been conventionally used to coat surfaces such as walls, buildings, fences, etc. 
  • Water treatment. Calcium hydroxide is widely used to adjust pH, however, it can also be employed as a coagulant aid.
