Mining Chemicals Market By Products (Frothers, Flocculants, Collectors, Solvent Extractants, Grinding Aids), By Application (Mineral Processing, Explosives & Drilling, Water & Wastewater Treament) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Mining chemicals market is witnessing growth owing to increased complexity of ores and low mineral concentration. Moreover, increasing investments in mining projected in emerging economies is another factor stimulating the market growth.

In terms of product type, in 2016, grinding aids accounted for over 35% share of the market in terms of revenue and projected to maintain their hold during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.  However, flocculants is projected to be the fastest growing segment. Collectors is another important product segment of mining chemicals market and is projected to witness moderate growth rate during the forecast period.

By application type, explosives and drilling and waste & water treatment application accounted for the largest share in the global market, representing more than 60.0% share collectively in 2016 in terms of revenue. However, growth is projected to be highest from the water treatment application segment which is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.

Of the global mining chemicals market, in 2016, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of 47.15% in terms of value. It is also projected to grow at a highest CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. This growth is attributed to the favorable government policies, increased urbanization and industrialization and increasing mining activities. In addition, rising foreign investment in the region is also contributing towards the market growth. Asia Pacific was followed by North America and Europe. Increasing merger and acquisition activities for mineral extraction and production in Latin America and Middle East and Africa is projected to augment market growth.

Chinese players are manufacturing and exporting floating mining chemicals in large volumes from domestic facilities. But, most of the Chinese made floating mining chemicals are not sold directly by manufacturers however, almost exclusively through distributors. In order to strengthen their market position player’s needed to adopt various strategies such as expand their production capacity and develop new products using advanced technologies. Some of the key players present in this market are BASF, Clariant, Cytec, SNF FloMin, Beijing Hengju chemical Group Corporation and Kemira among others.
