Lime manufacturers' fortunes rose and fell with those of downstream markets over the past five years. Manufacturing and industrial performance, as well as the health of construction markets, largely determine industry revenue. While the recession led to stark drops in revenue, recovery was swift and the industry is expected to grow steadily in the coming five years. The use of lime in pollution abatement efforts is expected to present a key avenue of growth for the industry in the future.
