Lime Market Analysis

The Lime Market size is estimated at USD 42.35 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 47.22 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 2.20% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

  • Lime is used as an ingredient for the production of citric acid, lime oil, lime juice, and other products which are used in household food items, as well as chores. Therefore, the growing demand for the products will eventually increase the demand for lime. As a result, the growing interest in health benefits and cleaning applications will be a major force driving the market.
  • India is one of the largest lime producers, accounting for 3.5 million metric tons in 2021. The area harvested under limes in India was 3,22,000 hectares and 3,27,000 hectares in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
  • Although India is one of the top producers of limes in the world, it has a negligible presence in the processing market. Most of the produced limes in the country are consumed as fruits. However, some parts of the production go into food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical production. Both the flavor and fragrance processing industries have a demand for lime in India.

Lime Market Trends

Caters to Various Industries

  • Lime is one of the key raw ingredients for many food processing and other industrial applications. Certain pickles and juice processing industries procure lime consistently from lime producers. Lime is extensively used as an important ingredient in cosmetics, essential oil, and pharmaceutical industries for manufacturing products, in the cleaning and household industry, agriculture industry, and energy industry due to its oil content. Therefore, to meet the growing demand from these industries, the production of lime has increased in recent years.
  • The lime-based ingredient used in drinks, food, and confectionery contains a distinct flavor from that made from lemons. It adds a tangy flavor to dishes such as ceviche, guacamole, and mojitos. This unique taste of lime makes it a majorly demanding citrus fruit and is in great demand among global beverage companies.
  • Also, lime rind contains a limonene chemical compound, an essential oil widely used in the oil and cosmetics industries. Thus, global cosmetic manufacturers are widely adopting such ingredients in their cosmetic production. Thus, the demand from these industries is positively impacting the production of lime in the world. New uses for lime are constantly discovered as researchers continue to explore its potential benefits.

  • Lime fruit production is expected to continue in the forecast period due to the factors such as increasing demand for lime-based products, favorable climatic conditions for lime cultivation, and government initiatives to promote agricultural growth and food security.
  • For instance, In India, the National Agricultural Development Scheme (NADS) was launched in 2020-21 by the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India. The scheme provides financial assistance to farmers to develop agriculture and allied sectors, including cultivating lime fruit.
