    What is dolomite?

    Dolomite stands for calcium magnesium carbonate CaMg (CO3)2. It is a type of rock-forming mineral and a good source of magnesium oxide. Dolomite exhibits properties like high refractoriness, enhanced thermodynamic stability, etc., and hence it is widely used in the construction industry, iron & steel smelting, etc. Dolomites are of different types, such as agglomerates, calcined, sintered, and more.

    Market Dynamics

    The global market for dolomites is influenced by numerous factors including -

    • Construction and infrastructure demand: Dolomite is widely used in the construction industry as a filler for concrete that adds strength and durability to it. The global construction industry is rapidly growing. According to Oxford Economics, the construction work across the globe which accounted for US$9.7 trillion in 2022 is estimated to cross US$13 trillion by 2037. The demand coming from the increasing construction sector is likely to boost the global dolomite market in the future.
    • Increasing Cement Production – The rapidly increasing construction industry is propelling the demand for cement production too. Since cement is a mixture of calcium, silicon, and aluminum oxides and dolomite is a good source of calcium carbonate, which is one of the main ingredients in cement, the growing demand for dolomite is driven by the growing requirement for cement.
    • Rapid advancements for dolomite extraction – The advancements in dolomite extraction are driving the demand for dolomites rapidly. New methods are being developed to extract dolomite from ore. The use of hydrometallurgical techniques is becoming more common. These techniques use water and chemicals to dissolve dolomite, which makes it easier to extract.
    • Rising Demand in Agriculture and Horticulture:  Dolomite is used in agriculture as a liming agent. A liming agent is a material that is added to soil to increase its pH. The increasing awareness about soil health and the requirement for improved agricultural production thereby contributes to the growth of the dolomite market.
    • Expansion of the Magnesium Production Industry: Magnesium is a vital component for a wide range of industries like automotive, aerospace, electronics, and more. According to studies, every 100 grams of dolomite has ~30 to 40 grams of magnesium, making it a significant source of magnesium. The growing demand for magnesium in various industries is, hence, fuelling the demand for dolomite.
