Market Dynamics

Calcium Oxide Has Shown to be Profitable in the Construction Industry

While Calcium Oxide appears to have a place in nearly every industry, it stands out in construction industry. Calcium oxide is a crucial component for the process of making cement. Buildings are constructed using calcium oxide, a flexible material. In the construction sector, where it is utilised to create bricks, plaster, mortar, stucco, and other building materials. It is a type of mortar that may be utilized in the construction of masonry systems.

Calcium oxide is a component of both indoor and outdoor plaster systems. Calcium oxide is a substance that may be added to asphalt to increase cohesiveness, lessen stripping, and slow down aging. Along with this, there has been an upward trend in renovation projects in developed countries, which is adding value to the further growth of the construction industry.

Calcium Oxide Has Proven to Be Economical in the Metal Manufacturing Industry

Calcium oxide is used as a clinker agent in the production of metals to liberate impurities from metallic components. Calcium oxide demand in steelmaking is being driven by lime's emergent use in electric arc furnaces, AOD converters, and refining ladles.

Calcium oxide attends a variety of purposes in the metallurgical industry as a corrosion preventive and acid neutralizer. It is used in steelmaking as a purifying agent to eliminate impurities and to eradicate sulphur and phosphorus.

Additionally, calcium oxide is used in the production of copper, lead, zinc, silver, nickel, gold, uranium, and other metals to separate impurities by the flotation of different metal salts. Demand from the steel industry is permitting the demand intended for lime in the market.

Challenge Faced by the Calcium Oxide Industry: Stringent environmental regulations

The extraction of calcium oxide triggers pollution, causing harm to the environment combined with the population involved in manufacturing units. Besides, it causes severe irritation and various health problems such as brittle nails, thickened skin, and skin cracking, which are among the side effects of calcium oxide. Calcium oxide may cause pulmonary irritation. With repeated exposure, bronchitis with coughing, phlegm, and/or shortness of breath may occur.

Hence, governments are imposing stringent environmental regulations against the production of calcium oxide, thereby expected to hamper the market growth. Further, lowering noise, air and water pollution are chief concerns for the manufacturers of calcium oxide.
