LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global calcium hydroxide market report until 2021. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global calcium hydroxide market is growing at a CAGR of almost 5% during the forecast period. The market is expected to see a smooth growth owing to the increasing consumption of calcium hydroxide in gas treatment, agriculture, and other industries. The environmental water treatment industry accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016 with a share of 51.38%. In this industry, calcium hydroxide adjusts the pH and softens desalinated water. It also conditions, stabilizes, and improves the hygiene of waste water. The chemicals segment is another major end user of calcium hydroxide.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global calcium hydroxide market is highly fragmented. As logistics plays a critical role in manufacturing value-added products, the commercial end-use market supply and demand are concentrated at local and regional levels. Large players in the commercial market are vertically integrated with their own limestone assets. As proximity to the customer is one of the key success factors, the global calcium hydroxide market is also highly localized and regionalized. The key manufacturers include CARMEUSE, Graymont, Lhoist, Mississippi Lime, and Minerals Technologies.

Ajay Adhikari, an industry expert at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals, says, “End users consider product quality and packaging type, bulk or bag, to be the key factors while procuring calcium hydroxide or hydrated lime. Calcium hydroxide is highly reactive in nature. Thus, the packaging is a key consideration in the procurement process.”
