Increasing Demand from Construction Sector

Dolomite is a calcium magnesium carbonate mineral obtained from a sedimentary rock. It is used as an aggregator or filler material in cement. It has high surface hardness and density. Moreover, it has good weathering resistance. All these properties make dolomite an important ingredient in cement and concrete mixes. The global construction industry is growing at a rapid pace with rising population, expanding urban area, and rising per-capita income. Thus, with the growth of construction industry, the dolomite mining is expected to witness a massive growth over the forecast period. 

Within the report, the market is segmented into mineral type, end-use industry, and geography. By mineral type, the market is segmented into calcined dolomite and sintered dolomite. In terms of end-use industry, the market is segmented construction, animal feed, metal processing, and others. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Surging Demand in Animal Feed Industry

Livestock animals need calcium carbonate for bone development, proper functioning of brain, and to produce milk and eggs. Dolomite is a rich source of calcium and magnesium carbonate. Therefore, dolomite is used in animal feed, especially in cattle and poultry feed. Dolomite is incorporated vitamin fortified feeds and premixes. The awareness regarding specific nutrition for livestock animals is increasing among farmers owing to rising concerns over quality of meat among consumers and rising importance of animal health. This factor is therefore providing a strong growth potential for dolomite mining market.

Growing Utilization of Dolomite for Metal Processing

In the production of iron, dolomite is used as a desulphurizing agent. Moreover, in the steelmaking industry, dolomite is used as a refractory material and fluxing agent. The steel industry is growing at a rapid pace with rising demand from automotive, building & construction, aerospace, and marine industries. Moreover, there is a high demand for iron for the production of stainless steel. Therefore, rising demand for iron and steel from various end-use industries is anticipated to drive the dolomite market over the coming years.
