Description

Marble is a metamorphic rock which has a bright white colour and lustrous finish. It is used widely used for decorative purpose. It is obtained by open pit mining and quarrying in various marble deposits across the world. The global marble market is expected to have a significant growth driven by the extensive use of marble in the construction industry due to its aesthetic value. Marble in ground form also has several applications. It is used as a soil enhancer, as a calcium supplement in animal feed, as a soft abrasive material for grinding applications and in the manufacture of antacid and acid neutralizer. But the high cost of marble is expected to limit the demand for marble.

By application, the construction segment is expected to have a significant market share due to its several uses such as laying pavement, stairs, kitchen platform, flooring, sculpture and external walls. In ground form, it is added to the concrete mixture as a filler agent. By form, the slab segment is estimated to have a considerable market share. The slabs can be shaped and molded as per the requirement. Based on colour, the white marble is expected to have a notable market share due to its wide use.
