Lime Manufacturing in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Lime Manufacturing industry has continued to grow at a healthy pace. Prior to the current five-year period, demand for lime from traditional downstream markets fell as construction activity slowed significantly during the economic downturn. However, thanks to the broad uses of lime and its expanding applications in the pollution abatement market, the industry has managed to maintain a steady growth rate over the past five years. Over the next five years, the industry will benefit from substantial gains in the level of construction activity, particularly residential construction. In addition, industrial production will climb, driving greater usage of industry products for emissions control.

The Lime Manufacturing industry comprises establishments that manufacture lime from calcitic limestone, dolomitic limestone or other calcareous materials, such as coral, chalk and shells. Lime manufacturing establishments may mine, quarry, collect or purchase the sources of calcium carbonate.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
