Dolomite Market Share, Global Industry Size, Growth, SWOT Analysis, Top Companies, Competitor Landscape, Regional Outlook 2029

Dolomite is a calcium and magnesium carbonate with chemical composition CaMg(CO3)2. Limestone containing dolomite is known as dolomitic limestone. Dolomite is also found in crystals and extensive beds as a compact limestone.It is an anhydrous carbonate mineral and is different from limestone as it contains magnesium as well. It is a kind of sedimentary rock rich in magnesia and is a good neutralizing agent because it supplies both calcium and magnesium elements. Dolomite is used as in construction and furnace refractory. The crystal of dolomite is hexagonal and rhombohedral in shape and it occurs in different colors such as gray, pink or white etc. Dolomite mineral contains impurities such as silica, iron oxide and alumina. If the percentage of combined impurities goes beyond 7 %, then dolomite becomes unsuitable for industrial use. With more than 7% of impurities, dolomite can be used only for road construction, building and flooring purposes. Features of dolomite include host rock for the lead, traps for subsurface fluids such as oil, natural gas, zinc, and copper deposits.
