Market Insights

Industrial explosives refer to high-hazard explosive materials primarily used in quarrying, mining, and construction activities. Industrial explosives, when initiated properly, quickly transform into gases at high temperatures and pressures. The initiation process of industrial explosives is termed “detonation.” One liter of industrial explosive material can inflate up to 1,000 liters of high-pressure gas within microseconds and has a tendency to reach a temperature of around 1500–4000 °C. When used for the same task, industrial explosives have the ability to explode a larger area than traditional mechanical drills. Ammonium nitrate fuel oil, also abbreviated as ANFO, is the most widely used industrial explosive. The composition of ammonium nitrate fuel oil includes 94% ammonium nitrate and 6% fuel oil. Other important types of industrial explosives used in several applications include water gels, slurries, dynamite, TNT, and emulsions, among others.

The use of a particular industrial explosive for a specific task totally depends upon the detonation pressure, the velocity of detonation, density, effective energy, sensitivity, water resistance, and storage time. Large amounts of industrial explosives are charged into the blasted pit and then detonated using high explosives, which have a higher sensitivity. The global industrial explosives market is witnessing intense opportunities owing to a surge in demand for mineral extraction, which in turn is driving mining activities across the globe. In 2014, China extracted more than 4,000,000 kilotons of coal and was expected to focus more on coal production, owing to a rapid increase in demand for coal from thermal power plants. Hence, a rise in mineral extraction and mining activities is anticipated to bolster market growth over the forecast period.

Several factors, such as growth in mineral extraction across the globe coupled with rising investments by the governments of several economies to enhance their trade and mineral production capacities to lift their respective GDPs in the ever-competitive global market, have accelerated the demand for industrial explosives across the globe. Additionally, rising demand for blasting agents, especially in open pit mining, owing to increasing demand for construction stones and building materials, especially from Asia-Pacific and Latin America, is another major aspect driving the growth of the global industrial explosives market.

However, several factors, such as volatile prices of raw materials as well as the high cost of high explosives, limit their usage in several end-use applications, as well as impose limitations in storage and transportation due to their unstable behavior. These are some of the key aspects impeding the market’s growth. Although demand for industrial explosives is anticipated to increase in Asia-Pacific owing to an increase in mining and construction activities on account of rapid development in the region,

On the basis of application, mining accounts for a major share of the global industrial explosives market owing to the increasing demand for precious metals such as silver and gold. Also, increasing demand for iron and copper for several industrial applications is further projected to drive the mining segment over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the dominant region due to the increasing demand for coal from thermal power plants coupled with increasing construction activities in the region. Latin America is projected to account for the second-largest share due to the abundance of mineral reserves in Chile, Peru, and Colombia, coupled with the increasing penetration of mining giants in the region.

The global industrial explosives market can be categorized on the basis of type as follows:

High Explosives

  • TNR
  • Dynamite

  • Emulsion
  • Slurry
  • Others

The blasting agent segment was dominant in the global industrial explosives market in 2016 and is anticipated to uphold its dominance over the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. This is due to the high demand for cheaper and more effective explosives, especially in mining applications. Moreover, low cost is a major factor accelerating the demand for blasting agents since high explosives are costlier and are not feasible to use in bulk quantities. Also, the increasing growth of tunneling activities is a major area demanding blasting agents in bulk quantities. ANFO and emulsions are the most widely used blasting agents due to ease of storage, low costs, and efficient yields. Because underground mining is considered more effective and less expensive than open pit mining, ANFO is widely used in it.

This is due to an increase in demand for metal ores, as well as rising government investments in mineral extraction through underground mining. Blasting agents are less reactive explosives as compared to high explosives and require high energy for their detonation. Thus, chemical stability, ease of transportation, and ease of application are some other major aspects driving the demand for blasting agents across the globe. Furthermore, rising construction activity and increased demand for industrial explosives in seismic wave generation for geoscience research are two key factors driving demand for industrial explosives. However, increasing government regulations regarding air pollution and carbon emissions are some aspects anticipated to hinder the market growth.

By application, the mining segment accounted for the largest share of the global industrial explosives market in 2016 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. This is mainly due to rising mineral extraction activities and increasing demand for rare earth metals such as silver and gold. Also, coal, being the most widely preferred source of fuel for thermal power plants, is another major commodity driving the growth of the mining industry across several regions.

In addition, the expansion in production capacities of several manufacturers due to the increasing demand for iron, copper, and other metals, especially for construction and industrial purposes, is another key factor driving the growth of the mining segment. The construction segment, which accounted for the second-largest share in the global industrial explosives market, is anticipated to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The implementation of industrial explosives for building implosions, tunneling, and highway construction is largely driven by growing awareness among construction professionals of the use of industrial explosives as a substitute for mechanical drills to save on overall expenditure, costs, and time.
