Global Calcium Hydroxide Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Sales Channel, Regional Demand, Foreign Trade, Company Share, 2015-2035
The global Calcium Hydroxide market has grown remarkably to reach approximately 30 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.77% during the forecast period until 2035. The low cost of Calcium Hydroxide and its alkaline nature drives its application in the wastewater treatment plants which is the major driver of its market.
Calcium Hydroxide is a soft white colored, odorless, powdery form organic compound, with slight bitter alkaline taste. It is also known as caustic lime, slaked lime or hydrated lime and its chemical formula is Ca(OH)2. Calcium Hydroxide is slightly soluble in water at room temperature and its saturated aqueous solution is known as lime water that is alkaline in nature. Commercially, Calcium Hydroxide is produced by an exothermic reaction between lime/calcium oxide/quick lime (CaO) with water. Calcium Hydroxide market is segmented into various grades based on its purity and utility such as Calcium Hydroxide-Pharma Grade, Calcium Hydroxide-Food Grade, and Calcium Hydroxide-Technical Grade.
Calcium Hydroxide is extensively used as a flocculant in drinking water and waste-water treatment, where it not only removes impurities to make water clean but also improves the water quality by neutralizing it and making it soft. In food and beverage, industry it is employed in processing water for soft drink and alcoholic beverages, for processing sugar, corn, and salt, in pickling process, to improve nutritional value of fruit juices, for making baking soda, etc. Additionally, it is one of the cheapest and most effective compounds used for treating and neutralizing acidic gases such as Sulphur dioxide, Hydrogen chloride, etc. Similarly, it has wide range applications in agriculture, pulp and paper, construction, and other industries.
The market drivers of the global Calcium Hydroxide market are the water treatment and construction sector. It is most widely used chemical for wastewater treatment and achieve drinking water. In future, the decline in number of freshwater reserves will result in increase of water treatment of impure water, which is anticipated to robust the global Calcium Hydroxide market. Furthermore, its application as a pH modifier and preparation of industrially significant chemicals like ammonia are other factors that contribute to the demand of Calcium Hydroxide on a global level. The global Calcium Hydroxide market will most likely reach 55 million tonnes by 2035.
Based on demand by region, Asia Pacific is dominating the Calcium Hydroxide market followed by Europe and North America. Owing to rapid industrialization, urbanization, growing population, ongoing infrastructural projects, and growing wastewater treatment plants in the region, the market for Calcium Hydroxide market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate in the forecast period. Europe market for Calcium hydroxide is also expected to bloom at a significant rate owing to the government stringent regulations for treating wastewater before entering the environment. Calcium Hydroxide demand is also expected to surge in North America because of increase in construction projects and extensive utility in agriculture sector for making fertilizers, herbicides etc. Furthermore, China is leading as the producer of Calcium Hydroxide.
Based on the end-user industry, the global Calcium Hydroxide market is segregated into Chemical & Industrial, Construction, Environmental, Sludge Treatment, Water Treatment, and Others. Although, the Construction industry is the leading as a consumer of Calcium Hydroxide. In 2021, this industry held about 35% of the Calcium Hydroxide market. Chemical & Industrial applications are also lucrative segment of Calcium Hydroxide. Furthermore, the growing water and wastewater treatment projects across the globe is anticipated to fuel the demand of calcium hydroxide in the forecast period.
