Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Dolomite Powder Market size is set to reach USD 11 Billion by the end of 2035, expanding at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of dolomite powder was over USD 3 Billion. The dolomite powder sector is receiving immense demand in the construction industry owing to its wide application in the construction sector. It is used in the production process of the two most significant construction materials i.e. steel and cement.

Dolomite powder is used as a very important material in the manufacturing of concrete and is heated to produce cement. The durability of concrete is shown to increase when dolomite powder is used in place of cement. The 28th-day tensile and flexural strength maximum increases were determined to be 10.4% and 17.8%, respectively, at the replacement level of 10%, which is considered to be the ideal substitution amount of cement with dolomite powder.

Besides the construction sector, dolomite powder usage can also widely be seen in the steel industry to remove impurities from slag during the manufacturing of steel. Additionally, open-hearth steel furnace refractory linings are made of dolomite powder.

The market is anticipated to expand rapidly owing to increased steel production and consumption. About 98% of the raw materials required to produce crude steel are turned into goods and byproducts, according to the world steel association. Zero waste is the industry's objective. The market is likely to witness sales opportunities as a result of the increased focus on recycling steel.

Dolomite Powder Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Driver

  • Growing Demand as a Soil Fertilizer – Dolomite powder plays a crucial role in the agriculture domain by serving as soil fertilizer for plant roots, along with this it also neutralizes the PH level of soil and offers valuable minerals and nutrients to soil. Fertilizer sales in India increased by 83% from April to June 2020 compared to the same period in 2019, despite a national lockdown.
  • High Demand in the Glass and Ceramic Industry - A significant end-user sector of this market is the glass and ceramics sector. Dolomite and limestone are added to the glass melt to add lime. The mineral's magnesia content enhances the glass's toughness and prevents the devitrification process, which is important for the creation of flat glass. It is also utilized in container glass. Therefore, owing to these attributes the high demand in the glass and ceramic industry is expected to propel the market growth.
  • Technological Advancement in Dolomite Powder - The product is experiencing a growth in demand across an array of applications as a result of technical improvements. Throughout the forecast period, this is anticipated to positively impact the growth of the worldwide dolomite powder market.


  • Side Effects Caused by Dolomite Exposure – The dolomite powder contains lead impurities sometimes in the form of powder in the post-processing. And if this powder containing impurities is used as fertilizers in soil then it can cause harmful effects to animals and human beings. Therefore, exposure to dolomite offers side effects such as headache, vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea, and fatigue. Hence, these side effects are also estimated to hamper the market expansion in the upcoming period.

Dolomite Powder Segmentation

Application (Steel Making, Cement Industry, Agriculture, Glass, Ceramic, Rubber)

The steel-making segment in the dolomite powder market is estimated to observe the largest revenue throughout the forecast timeframe. Being a refractory substance, dolomite is used in walls of electric furnaces, the lining of steelmaking transformers, and opening hearth furnaces. The market players have raised their manufacturing capacity as the demand for refractory substances seems to rise. For instance, RHI Magnesita declared investing USD 24 million to increase its Dolomite site in China in June 2018.

Moreover, the growing use of steel in the automotive industry and construction sectors is anticipated to propel the market growth of this segment in the predicted period.

Type (Calcium Dolomite, Magnesium Dolomite)

The calcium dolomite segment is assumed to witness the largest market share of 60% by the end of 2035. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the account of the high application of this type in the steel industry for the production of stainless steel and it is also used as refractory lining prevention and scorifiers.

The wide application of calcium dolomite can also be seen in the cement, concrete, refractories, and mortars sector which is also predicted to boost the segment growth in the projected period.
