Lime Market in Africa: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The increased adoption of lightweight machinery across industries is notably driving the lime market growth in Africa, although factors such as health hazards associated with hydrated lime may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the lime industry in Africa. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Lime Market Driver in Africa

One of the key factors driving the lime market growth in Africa is the increased adoption of lightweight machinery in industries such as automotive, construction equipment, and industrial machinery. Industries are opting for lightweight materials, such as high-strength steel, aluminum, and magnesium alloys, to reduce the weight of automobiles and related components and thereby lower overall fuel consumption. Manufacturers now prefer aluminum due to its recyclability and resistance to corrosion. Furthermore, aluminum leaves a smaller carbon footprint and helps reduce the energy and fuel consumption of manufacturing machinery. Quicklime is a major raw material used in the extraction of aluminum and copper from their respective ores. Thus, the growing adoption of lightweight machinery in the manufacturing sector is expected to support the growth of the lime market in Africa during the forecast period.

Key Lime Market Trend in Africa

Another key factor driving the lime market growth in Africa is the rising popularity of alkaline-based papermaking. Hydrated lime finds high application in alkaline-based papermaking, especially for causticization. Growing concerns over environmental pollution in the last few decades have resulted in the revival of alkaline-based papermaking as it offers improved energy efficiency and minimizes the carbon footprint through secondary fiber recycling as well as reduced water consumption in the papermaking process. Key vendors such as Mineral Technologies are developing high filler technologies to minimize fiber consumption in alkaline-based paper manufacturing. Such factors are expected to increase the demand for lime, which will support the growth of the lime market in Africa during the forecast period.

Key Lime Market Challenge in Africa

One of the key challenges to the lime market growth in Africa is the health hazards associated with hydrated lime that is widely used in several industries, such as food and beverage and paper. However, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for hydrated lime holds a rating of 1-3, indicating its hazardous nature. Overexposure to hydrated lime may cause serious damage to the skin, eyes, and lungs. Moreover, accidental ingestion of hydrated lime can cause severe throat and body pain, vomiting, blood in the stool, and a rapid decrease in blood pressure. Thus, the storage equipment used during the production and transportation of the material should offer adequate safety, which increases the overall production costs that is expected to limit its application in key end-user industries during the forecast period.

This lime market in Africa analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.
