Market Overview:

The global agricultural limestone market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for agricultural limestone from the agriculture and gardening sectors across the globe. Agricultural limestone is used as a soil amendment and fertilizer in order to improve soil health and crop yield. It also helps in controlling pH levels, which is beneficial for crops that are sensitive to acidic soils. Additionally, agricultural lime increases the water-holding capacity of soils, thus improving drought tolerance in plants. These factors are expected to drive the demand for agricultural limestone over the forecast period. The global agricultural lime market can be segmented on the basis of type into calcitic, dolomitic, and other types of limestones. The calcitic type dominates the global Agricultural Limestone Market owing its high calcium content that helps improve soil health and crop yield significantly as compared to other types of limestones available in this market space .

Global Agricultural Limestone Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Agricultural limestone is a crushed or ground form of limestone that is used as a soil amendment to improve the physical and chemical properties of acidic soils. Agricultural lime can also be used to adjust the pH of water, making it more hospitable for plants.


Calcitic is a mineral, which has the formula (KAl2Si2O8) and is also known as calcium aluminosilicate. It occurs in nature as an accessory mineral in some clays, such as bentonite and attapulgite. Calcitic can also be manufactured from silica sand; however, it contains impurities that must be removed before using for commercial purposes.


Dolomite is a sedimentary rock composed of calcium carbonate, magnesium, and potassium. It is typically formed by the crystallization of magma from a solidifying liquid.

Application Insights:

The application segment includes agriculture, gardening and others. The other applications include construction materials, water treatment and pulp & paper industry. Water treatment is expected to be the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for agricultural limestone in water purification processes across various industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and chemical manufacturing.

Agricultural use of the product is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2018 owing to its ability as a fertilizer in plant nutrition. It helps improve soil structure by providing essential nutrients including calcium (CALCIUM) and magnesium (MAGNESIUM) which are required for healthy plant growth.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global agricultural limestone market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of farmers who are adopting modern farming practices. These farmers use limestone as an important ingredient in their farming activities due to which there is high demand for it in this region.

The rising population coupled with increasing urbanization across Asia Pacific has led to increased food demand, thereby driving the agriculture industry within this region. As countries such as China and India witness rapid growth of agriculture production, there is a need for improving farm productivity through innovation and research so that sustainable development can be achieved within reasonable time frame. This factor will also propel product demand over the next eight years or so  - Dolomite Association of Canada Ltd.

Latin America agricultural lime stone market was valued at USD X million in 2016 owing to presence of large number of dolomite mines across Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay & Paraguay etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for high-quality agricultural products: There is a growing demand for high-quality agricultural products, which has led to an increase in the use of Agricultural Limestone.
  • Growing population and rising income levels in developing countries: The population in developing countries is growing rapidly, while the average income levels are also increasing, which is leading to an increase in the demand for food items. This is resulting in an increased need for Agricultural Limestone.
  • Technological advancements: There have been several technological advancements in the agriculture sector over the past few years, which has led to improved yields and reduced wastage of crops. This is resulting in an increased need for Agricultural Limestone.
  • Government initiatives supporting agriculture sector: Governments across various countries are taking initiatives to support the growth of the agriculture sector through various schemes and programmes such as subsidies on fertilizers and crop insurance schemes etc., This is resulting in an increased demand for Agricultural Limestone from farmers across these countries.. 5) Rising awareness about benefits of using Agricultural limestone : Farmers are becoming increasingly aware about the benefits of using Agricultural limestone such as improving soil health & fertility , reducing erosion etc.,This is leading to a rise In adoption rate Of agricultural limestone by farmers globally
