Government push to infrastructure expansion in countries such as China, the U.S., and India is expected to create lucrative opportunities for sales of dolomite.  Driven by this, the dolomite market is projected to reach US$ 5.28 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period from 2021 to 2031.

Dolomite applications are increasing across the chemical industry for neutralizing the acidity and pH level, of chemicals. In agriculture sector, it is used as a fertilizer, especially for the cultivation of fruits and vegetables with higher seeds quantity to suffice their calcium and magnesium requirement.

Rising government emphasis on increasing agricultural output is estimated to spur dolomite sales. On account of its application across diverse end-use application, the dolomite market is expected to register a year-on-year growth of 4.4% in 2021.

As per the material type, the calcined dolomites segment is projected to register year-over-year growth of 4% in 2021. Growing applications in scorifiers and refractory lining protectors across iron & steel industry is the factor facilitating the growth in the segment.

“Dolomite helps in reducing carbon emission during cement production. This attribute is encouraging numerous cement manufacturers to shift their preference from using limestone to dolomite in order to achieve their sustainability goals. This is expected to favor the growth in the market,” says a FMI analyst.
