Mining Chemicals Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, , Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: May 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Mining Chemicals demand stood at 2.275 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 3.99 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.85% until 2030. Mining Chemicals are specialty chemicals used in mining operations. These chemicals are of various types depending upon the function they are used to carry out. Mining Chemicals include flotation chemicals which further include collectors, depressants, flocculants, frothers, dispersants, extraction chemicals. Extraction chemicals are further classified into diluents and extractants and grinding aids. Mining Chemicals find application in mineral processing and treatment of wastewater generated during mining operations. The increasing need for specialty chemicals in mining operations coupled with the growing number of mining operations globally due to the increasing demand for minerals and precious metals is expected to drive the demand for Mining Chemicals during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing mining operations in Africa, North America are expected to push the demand further during the forecast period. Stringent environmental regulations regarding Mining Chemicals are expected to hinder demand growth during the forecast period. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on several industries. Mining was among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for Mining Chemicals for the first half of 2020. Therefore, the demand for  these chemicals fell during the coronavirus pandemic from the mineral processing segment. However, in the latter half of 2020, after the resumption of the mining activities, an improvement in the demand for Mining Chemicals was witnessed and is anticipated to propel the growth of the Mining Chemicals market in the forecast period. 
Region-wise, Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for Mining Chemicals due to the increasing number of mining operations. Moreover, increasing demand for minerals and precious metals is also another factor influencing demand growth in the Asia-Pacific. Increasing population and subsequent rise in per capita income and consumption of minerals in emerging economies like India and China is likely to support the demand rise for Mining Chemicals in Asia-Pacific.
