Global Dolomite Powder Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global dolomite powder market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~4% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Dolomite powder is derived from the dolomite mineral, which is formed under low oxygen conditions. This powder is extensively used as a soil fertilizer, and concrete aggregate. Further, dolomite is also used as a substitute for limestone. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing application of dolomite powder in the construction and agriculture industries. Dolomite powder serves as an excellent fertilizer for the soil, as it maintains the magnesium level of the soil. Moreover, dolomite powder is essential for manufacturing steel and cement. As a result, the growing demand for steel is estimated to boost the market growth. For instance, global crude steel production reached approximately 1,850 million metric tons in 2020, whereas, the total production of cement globally amounted to around 4 billion metric tons in the same year. Furthermore, dolomite powder is also used as a plastic filler to improve hardness, heat resistance, and electrical insulation of the material. Such diverse application of dolomite powder is estimated to boost the market growth.

Dolomite Powder Market Graph

The market is segmented by application into steel making, cement industry, agriculture, glass, ceramic, rubber, and others, out of which, the agriculture segment is anticipated to hold a substantial share in the global dolomite powder market over the forecast period on account of increasing usage of dolomite to improve soil fertility. Dolomite powder is rich in magnesium, which is why, it is used to adjust magnesium deficiency in the soil, and reduce soil acidity. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
