Extensive Use of Quicklime in the Metal Industry Aiding the Market Growth of Quicklime

The extensive use of quicklime in the metal industry is aiding the market growth. It is primarily employed in the steel industry owing to its favourable properties during the production of steel. The rising demand for superior and clearer steel is also increasing the use of quicklime, hence boosting the growth of the quicklime industry. The corrosion resistive and high-temperature resistant properties of quicklime make it ideal to be used as a clinker agent to eliminate impurities during the manufacturing of steel. As steel is one of the most widely used alloys deployed in various major industries, the demand for quicklime is also significantly surging, consequently augmenting the industry growth. Moreover, various research activities to utilise dust particles of zinc produced during steelmaking are increasing the demand for quicklime. The potential separation of zinc by combining its oxide with quicklime to promote the former’s decomposition for further application is providing impetus to the market growth.

 

Quicklime: Market Segmentation

Quicklime, variously known as calcium oxide, is a chemical compound that is manufactured by heating limestone at a high temperature. It is cost-effective and has various excellent properties such as corrosion-resistant, high permeability, and temperature resistance, due to which it is extensively deployed in major industries, such as construction, metal, and mining, among others.

Rising Mining Activities to Bolster the Growth of the Quicklime Industry

The use of limes in mining non-ferrous metals is increasing the demand for quicklime to increase temperature-resistant and reactivity of metals, hence boosting the market growth. The growing demand for elements such as copper owing to their biodegradability is increasing the activities of such metals. This, in turn, is surging the use of quicklime as a settling aid to maintain the alkalinity of copper ores, which is expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, the requirement of pH control in mining to prevent the loss of valuable metals and reagents is increasing the demand for quicklime, hence accelerating the market growth.

The use of quicklime in electrolytic refining of metals such as copper is anticipated to augment the industry growth. In addition, the cost-effectiveness of quicklime makes it ideal for extensive usage in various industries such as construction and oil and gas. The biodegradable and sustainable properties of quicklime are further projected to propel the growth of the industry in the forecast period.
