Drivers and Restraints:

Progression of Steel Sector to Trigger Market Growth

Lime is preliminarily utilized in steel manufacturing. As per Calcinor, the steel industry is unimaginable without the usage of this metal. The product is used in electric arc furnaces, AOD converters, and refining ladles. The steel products demand has augmented marvellously in the last few years owing to the surging determinations of governments in countries such as China, India, South Africa, and Brazil in order to construct a sturdy infrastructure and houses for the increasing populace in these nations.

Limestone is chiefly utilized tin the production of lime, where it is heated to obtain calcium oxide and carbon dioxide from calcium carbonate. The carbon dioxide created in the procedure is a greenhouse gas resulting in various disasters and global warming that leads to extreme results. Furthermore, this manufacturing procedure is vastly energy-intensive that augments general carbon footprint of the industry. Therefore, this is expected to hinder the lime market growth.
