Analysis Of Limestone Market Demand
The supply and demand of lime industry has been relatively stable for a long time. The iron and steel industry is a large ash consumer. Often, iron and steel enterprises will provide their own lime production workshops to meet the demand of sintering ash and steel-making ash. No matter from the perspective of lime supply or demand, both the high-end lime Market and the low-end lime market tend to shift to the middle end market, The upward transfer of low-end product market is mainly due to the increase of lime quality requirements of downstream users, while the market demand for high-end products shrinks. On the one hand, the mid end products have higher cost performance. On the other hand, they are also the result of excessive price speculation at the initial stage of high end products (such as nano scale lime) and excessive expansion of capacity, resulting in the burst of bubbles.
Favorable Factors For Limestone Industry
The high-quality limestone resource is the "anchor" of the future lime industry. At present, the prices of high-quality and high calcium limestone resources vary greatly in different regions. However, the non renewable and non creative resources and the dependence of lime products on resources determine the "high-quality" trend of high-quality and high calcium limestone resources in the future, In many areas, especially in less developed areas, the exploration level of limestone resources is not high, and the reserves and quality are not accurately grasped. The development strategy of lime industry requires that high-quality resources must be retained. Therefore, the exploration or ownership of high-quality and high calcium limestone resources can create better opportunities for the development of lime industry in the future.
