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.
