Americas High-Purity Limestone Market Worth $1.3 Billion By 2025

Published On: October 6, 2020

The Americas high-purity limestone market is projected to account USD 1.3 billion by the end of projected period, 2025 and registering 6.9% CAGR over the forecast period from 2018 to 2025, according to Million Insights. Growing metallurgical operations is expected to drive the high-purity limestone market growth in North America.

The World Steel Association reported that, North America is one of the largest users of steel for military and national security. Energy infrastructure such as electricity, petroleum refineries, power generating plants, storage tanks, utility distribution poles, electrical power and distribution transformers, utilize steel. Moreover, in transportation industry, steel is highly used for bridges, railroads, seaports, navigation systems, and mass transit systems. Therefore, it has been observed that steel consumption from 2016 to 2017 has increased by 2,039.9 kilotons.

This limestone poses several challenges during processing which is depends on the mode of processing applied and exclusive deposits. Processing of high-purity limestone into pelletized form can create challenges. Varying composition, abrasion, and clumping are some issues which occurs during limestone processing. In addition, during drying limestone abrasion can occur.
