Market Insight

Limestone is used in the production of cement that is extensively used in the construction industry. It can be in the form of chemical sandy rock, formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate from lake or ocean water. It is referred to as the world’s most versatile mineral and important raw material for numerous industries as it includes elements such as calcium, carbon, and oxygen. Moreover, the limestone is used in the preparation of drinking water, wastewater treatment, removal of acid gas from flue gases, and enhancement of soil stability. Limestone finds wide application in treating mining and industrial mining wastewater. This application contains the removal of nitrogen and phosphorus by promoting clarification, and the pH adjustment of acidic waste.


The outbreak of COVID-19 affected the domestic construction, industrial, and manufacturing activities in the first half of 2020 in Saudi Arabia. The COVID-19 outburst is expected to continue affecting the demand in the market. The construction industry in the country witnessed substantial growth in 2019, and it was anticipated to grow at a high rate during the forecast period (before COVID-19). In Saudi Arabia, the residential construction industry is going through major structural changes, with the rising construction of residential societies and high-rise building construction, rather than independent houses and bungalows. However, the construction industry is projected to a slowdown in the 2020-2021 financial year owing to the COVID-19 outbreak.


The disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the supply chain of the limestone market owing to low demand from the construction industry. A temporary halt in construction activities in the first half of 2020 in the country has slowed down the operation in the limestone market. However, the vendors are offering their products for residential and commercial infrastructure development. In Saudi Arabia, the situation is still unpleasant. There is a massive shortage of skilled laborers in the quarries and factories. In addition, numerous construction sites still have to work with a reduced workforce owing to the migration of workers. Therefore, it would not be wrong to say that consumption is likely to remain low in Saudi Arabia in 2020.


The increasing usage of limestone in the production of cement as well as in numerous other chemicals used in the production of various high-value every-day products is anticipated to boost the limestone market. The growing demand from the construction and agriculture sector is likely to drive the Saudi Arabia limestone market over the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing construction industry due to a robust economy and optimistic market fundamentals for commercial real estate, along with a rise in federal and state funding for public works and institutional buildings and structures will drive the market demand. Moreover, environmental mitigation processes such as water purification, soil stabilization, fertilization, and many more will propel the market growth. However, the factors such as environmental regulations to reduce greenhouse emissions together with growing awareness about global warming can critically hinder the market growth. Also, the lack of regulatory norms accompanied by the absence of required infrastructure is the potential restraints hindering the overall growth of the Saudi Arabia limestone market.
