Mining chemicals are functionally specific chemicals that enrich the production and effectiveness of mining processes. These chemicals are chiefly used in mineral handling, drilling and blasting, and water and waste management. Global mining chemical market is estimated to grow with approximate 4.00% CAGR during the year 2019 – 2027. The base year considered for the study is 2018 and the estimated period is between 2019 and 2027.

The mining chemical market is primarily driven by following factors:

  • Increase in blasting and drilling application in coal mining
  • Stringent environmental regulations
  • Rapid industrialization in BRICS
  • Increasing industry-specific offerings by vendors
  • Increasing requirement for coal in energy production

The rapid industrialization in the BRICS has led to a high demand for metals and minerals. With investment in most developed countries nearing saturation, investors are targeting developing countries as their new manufacturing space. Developing countries like Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa are expected to see significant growth in industrialization. The BRICS and other developing countries are the new mining hubs of the world with abundant natural mineral resources. The easy availability of skilled labor, raw materials, and the more favorable regulatory environment has attracted mining companies to these countries.

Blasting and Drilling is the largest application segment in the global mining chemicals market. Blasting & Drilling is the controlled use of explosives and other methods such as gas pressure blasting pyrotechnics, to break rock for excavation. It is practiced most often in mining, quarrying and civil engineering such as dam or road construction. The result of rock blasting is often known as a rock cut. Blasting & Drilling currently utilizes many different varieties of explosives with different compositions and performance properties. Higher velocity explosives are used for relatively hard rock in order to shatter and break the rock, while low-velocity explosives are used in soft rocks to generate more gas pressure and a greater heaving effect. In this application, chemicals are used to break the raw mineral ore rocks in a controlled manner. Explosives are primarily used in the process of mining, quarrying, and tunnelling. One of the commonly used mining chemicals in blasting is ammonium nitrate-fuel oil (ANFO). This chemical is growing in preference over dynamite in the mining industry because of safety concerns associated with it. China (XX%), the US (XX%), South America (XX%), and India (X%) are the major consumers of blasting and drilling chemicals.

With increasing consumption of global mining chemicals globally, newer challenges have emerged in the market. One such challenge is setting up a manufacturing facility in other countries. The initial cost of setting up chemicals manufacturing facility is high as manufacturers need to invest significantly in R&D to develop new chemicals. Companies also have to achieve a break-even point before a competitor comes up with a similar product. Thus the extra premium borne in R&D by the players is transferred to the end-users of speciality chemicals such as small and medium businesses. Also, the cost of mining chemicals depends on oil and natural gas prices as petroleum derivatives are largely used to manufacture these chemicals. Hence, if the price of petroleum derivatives goes up, the manufacturers have to pass on the increasing cost to the customers.

The Global Mining chemical market segments include product types and applications. Their further sub-segmentation is done as follows:

Market by Product types:

  • Grinding Aids
  • Flocculants
  • Solvent extractants
  • Emulsifiers
  • Sulfide collectors

The report scope is widely characterized on the basis of the type of products & application. The total market revenue is calculated on the basis of net sales of global mining chemicals market globally.

Geographically, the Global Mining Chemical Market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which include:

Globally, Asia Pacific Region accounted for the largest share of the global mining chemicals market. This has been attributed to the favorable regulatory environment in most countries in the region and the growing mining operations in many developing countries. Private and foreign investments have also been on the rise in recent years. APAC collectively contributes to a production share of more than xx% of iron ore, xx% each of copper, silver, nickel, and zinc, and xx% of coal and molybdenum globally. China, Australia, and Japan have the largest market share in the region.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region for the product of mining chemicals. In total, there are more than xxxx mines in China, producing a large amount of the world’s supply. China is the world’s largest producer of coal, gold, and most rare earth minerals. A number of large multinational mining companies including BHP Billiton, Newcrest, Rio Tinto, Alcoa, Chalco, Shenhua (a Chinese mining company), Alcan and Xstrata operate in Australia. Overall, the resources sector represents almost xx% of the ASX market by capitalization, and almost one-third of the companies listed. Mining contributes about x.xx% of Australia’s Gross Domestic Product.

The Global Mining chemical market segments include product types and applications. Market by Product types is divided into grinding aids, flocculants, solvent extractants, emulsifiers, sulfide collectors, frothers and other product types. Market by applications types is divided into blasting and drilling, mineral processing, water and waste treatment and other applications.

The major market players in the global mining chemical market are:

  • AECI
  • Dupont
  • BASF
  • Akzo Nobel N.V
  • Chevron Phillips Chemical
  • Others

Strategic initiatives of the companies are explained in details. Most of the companies expand through partnership, contracts, agreements, and new product launch in order to gain a competitive edge over other companies. Recently, in September 2018, Air Products announced plans to build a new liquid hydrogen plant at its La Porte, Texas industrial gas facility to meet increasing product demand from several customer markets. Similarly, in September 2018, Clariant and SABIC announced the signing of a governance agreement that determines the principles of Clariant’s future governance, defines SABIC’s position as a strategic anchor shareholder and confirms Clariant’s independence as a publicly-listed company under Swiss corporate governance.
