Limestone Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

The global limestone market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2014-2019. Limestone refers to a sedimentary rock that is formed by the accumulation of calcium carbonate present in the organic remains of shells, algae and corals. It is commonly found in clear, warm and shallow ocean water. Some of the common types of limestone include chalk, coquina, travertine, tufa and fossiliferous, lithographic and oolitic limestone that can vary between very fine-textured to coarsely textured rocks. It is an essential ingredient for manufacturing construction aggregates, cement, lime and building stone. Owing to its advantageous particle size and controlled and effortless applications, it also finds application in the production of steel and iron, water and wastewater treatment, construction, agriculture, paper and pulp, and chemical industry, etc.

Significant growth in the construction and agriculture industries across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Limestone is widely used in the construction of buildings and roads and as a starting material for the preparation of the builder’s lime and cement. Moreover, limestone acts as an agricultural additive that aids in improving the quality of the soil by supplying calcium for plant and soil nutrition. Furthermore, widespread adoption of limestone for wastewater treatment, preparation of drinking water and removal of acid gas from flue gases is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, extensive utilization of limestone as a filter additive, coating pigment, brightening agent and surface finish additive for paper and pulp processing, is contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including the implementation of infrastructural development initiatives and the construction of smart cities, along with rapid industrialization, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global limestone market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
