Brazil High-Calcium Limestone Market - Segmented by Application - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

Looking to buy the report?

The Brazil high-calcium limestone market is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023). By application, construction and agriculture limestone held the largest share of approximately 74% during 2016. The market for high-calcium limestone in the country is majorly driven by the positive outlook from the recovering construction industry.

Recovering Construction Industry Driving the Market

The construction industry is the largest consumer of high-calcium limestone in Brazil where its usage can be found in Portland cement and masonry mortar. The ongoing construction activities in Brazil is expected to increase the usage of these construction materials, which in turn is expected to boost the market for high-calcium limestone through the years. Owing to this the government, as of April, 2018 has promoted 112 infrastructural projects (both at state and federal level) valued at more than USD 53.1 billion on the GI Hub’s global infrastructure project pipeline. Some of the sector whose projects are included among them are energy, roads, railways, ports, airports, telecommunications, urban mobility, construction, and tourism amongst others. Moreover, despite a nationwide decline of the industry growth for consecutive months, in 2017, the Brazil’s construction sector experienced a positive growth. According to a forecast released by the São Paulo state construction union, SindusCon-SP, the GDP of the Brazilian construction industry was estimated to increase by 0.50% in 2017.

Construction Segment to Contribute Significant Demand to the Market

The largest end-user industry for limestone is construction. This industry can further be classified as aggregates and coarse fillers. High-calcium limestone rocks can be used as aggregates in applications, such as roads, cements, and many other construction applications in rock form. This, especially, can be noticed in companies with integrated manufacturing of cement and mining of Limestone. Limestone to be used as aggregates need to have properties, such as less porosity to resist water. The most important type of cement is Portland cement. The raw materials for its manufacture are limestone, clay, and gypsum. The limestone provides the calcium oxide, the clay provides silica, aluminum oxide, and iron oxide. A typical portland cement clinker mix would contain approximately 80% limestone and 20% clay and portland cement would contain at least 90% clinker. Positive trend in the construction industry is expected to drive the demand for cement in the near future.
