U.S.Lime Market

Market Insights on U.S.Lime covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

U.S.Lime Market By Product Type (Quick Lime, Hydrated Lime), Application (Cement Manufacturing, Metal Manufacturing, Fertilizer) & Region - Forecast to 2016 - 2026

Introduction

Lime is a low cost-high volume commodity that is derived from heating limestone and is consumed on a large scale in the United States. There are two types of lime generally available in the market – quick lime and hydrated lime – and are used across various applications including metal processing, cement manufacturing, pulp and paper processing, etc.

Revenue from the sales of lime in the U.S. market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,538.1 Mn by 2016 end. The U.S. lime market is estimated to register a value CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period 2016–2026.

Increasing use of lime to remove impurities during metallurgical operations likely to boost market growth

The domestic metal industry in the U.S., which suffered from dumping of low cost products in the country, is expected to strengthen its position over the coming years. A huge amount of lime is used to eliminate impurities during metallurgical operations such as in the manufacturing process of ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (alumina & bauxite, magnesium, copper, zinc, lead, etc.) metals.

Due to developments in the metal industry, the demand for lime is also anticipated to experience significant rise and the market is forecast to register healthy growth over the coming years.

Another key driver impacting the demand for lime in the U.S. market is its increasing use for producing precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC). PCC, due to its high calcium content, is progressively being used in the manufacture of paints, paper, plastic, rubber, calcium-based antacid tablets and liquids, multi-vitamin/mineral tablets, etc.

The growing use of PCC, specifically in the healthcare, polymer, and paper industries, is expected to drive demand for lime in the U.S market over the forecast period.

Growing prominence of lime alternatives such as limestone, calcined gypsum, magnesium hydroxide etc. are expected to pose challenges to its market growth in the country. Besides, less storage time is another challenge faced by market players in the U.S. lime market.

Lime, when stored for more than six months, changes its physical and chemical characteristics due to absorption of carbon dioxide and moisture, and the product becomes unsuitable for use. These factors are likely to restrict revenue growth of the U.S lime market over the forecast period.

Quick Lime product type segment anticipated to continue a disproportionate dominance throughout the forecast period

The Quick Lime segment accounted for a volume share of 85.2% in the U.S. lime market in 2015. This segment is anticipated to register a volume CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period.
