Market Analysis

The global lime market is being driven by the growing construction industry across the globe. The construction sector is rapidly growing, especially in the developing economies, like India and China. The growth is aided by the growing population and the rising economies of the countries. The region is witnessing growing construction activities to cater to the housing demand of the population. Recent policies in the United States regarding anti-dumping tariffs and the new regulations in China are affecting the steel industry, which would also support the lime market growth.

The growing steel industry is also driving the lime market demand. Hydrated lime has its application in providing the steel products protection from corrosion as well as impurities. It is like a coating on the products, which helps to neutralize the acid of the slag. Thus, the growth in the steel industry is directly affecting the lime industry growth. Its increasing use in the metallurgical application while producing steel is driving the growth of the lime market further. The product is also used in the manufacturing of aluminium and magnesium. It has wide applications in the refining of metal ores and non-ferrous metals like gold, silver, and aluminium, among others.

Environmental regulations in China are also acting as a major driver for the lime market. The stringent regulations by the China government about the emissions by power plants and wastewater treatment plants is driving the industry growth for the product further. Other major factors driving the demand for lime are flue gas treatment, chemicals, and the growing automobiles production.
