Mining industry is witnessing quick diminution of proven reserves of various metals and minerals coupled with falling ore grades across various mines all over the world. This is resulted into growing need to improve productivity and efficiency in extracting metals and minerals from the ore. Use of mining chemicals has become necessary to increase production to fulfill growing demand for metals in construction, oil & gas and packaging industries. This in turn resulted into growing demand for mining chemicals. However, environmental concerns associated with the use of mining chemicals such as explosives is expected to be major concern for the industry participants.
On the basis of product type, mining chemicals are segmented as grinding aids, flocculants, solvent extractants and flotation chemicals and others. Grinding aids was one of the largest product segments of mining chemicals market with slightly over 20% share in total volume consumption in 2014. However, flocculants are expected to witness fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Frothers and solvent extractant are other important product segments of mining chemicals market. Water & wastewater treatment was one of the leading application segments. It accounted for around 17% share in the mining chemical market in terms of volume in 2014 and is expected to exhibit fastest CAGR between 2015 and 2020. Mineral processing was the largest application segment in 2014. Drilling and explosives is another important application market for mining chemicals.
Asia Pacific dominated the global mining chemicals market with over 40% share in total volume consumption in 2014. Increasing urbanization and growth in economy is resulted into growing infrastructure development activity in the region. Moreover, mining sector is dominated by China and rest of Asia Pacific region. This in turn resulted into growing demand for metals and mining chemicals subsequently. Asia Pacific is followed by North America in terms of volume consumption. Europe, Latin America and Meddle East & Africa are also expected to grow at a moderate pace.
