The global Dolomite market size is expected to be worth around US$ 3.1 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Dolomite market size was valued at US$ 2.24 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Large-scale steel production in the world is anticipated to propel dolomite demand across the forecast period.
Dolomite is an anhydrous carbonate mineral that consists of calcium magnesium carbonate. It is a key component of dolostone and dolomitic marble. It is a vitreous pearly mineral available in different colors including white, pink, green, brown, black, etc. It is preferred as a substitute for limestone in the construction industry.
The key application of dolomite is as a refractory and then as a flux in the steel & iron industry. In the calcined form, it is used as a steelmaking slag flux, where in addition to increasing slag fluidity the magnesia content of the product helps protect and improve the lives of the steel vessel’s refractory linings. As a result, calcined dolomite accounted for the largest share of the market in 2019.
Glass & ceramics is also a vital end-user segment of the market. Lime is introduced in glass melt with dolomite and limestone. The magnesia content in the mineral improves the durability of the glass and inhibits the devitrification process, which holds significance in flat glass production. It also finds application in container glass.
Calcined was the largest product segment in 2019 and accounted for more than 38%. Calcined dolomite is obtained from minerals, such as and magnesium, through the process of calcination. It plays a vital role in the iron & steel industry where it is used in refractory lining protectors and scorifiers. It is also used in agriculture as a soil conditioner and in water treatment.
Increasing investments in the steel industry are anticipated to prove fruitful for product demand over the forecast period. For instance, the Indian Union Ministry of Steel intends a cumulative investment of USD 70 billion into the country’s eastern region for establishing an integrated steel hub, as it holds significant reserves of iron ore, coking coal, chromite, and dolomite along with the presence of major ports.
Iron & steel was the largest end-use segment in 2019 and held over 61% of the global share. It is expected to maintain its lead during the forecast period on account of increasing demand for steel in various end-use applications. Dolomite is used as a refractory material in steelmaking converter lining, opening hearth furnace, and electric furnace wall.
Glass & ceramics, another key segment of the market, is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4.3% in terms of revenue over the forecast period. Dolomite is a key raw material in glass production as it prevents chemical erosion due to water and atmosphere, enhances the plasticity of colored glass, and also increases its strength. The demand for glass is increasing to produce vials for medicines and vaccines, which will drive the segment growth.
Asia Pacific held the largest share of over 37% in 2019. The growth in refractories production is propelling the product demand in the region in the iron & steel industry. The covid-19 outbreak impacted the production activities considering the imposition of lockdown. Although, with ease in restrictions, industries are focusing on resuming their operations.
