South America Mining Chemicals Market to Register CAGR of 5.60% until 2027

Increasing new mining projects in South America and the never-ending demand for specialty chemicals in the region are the major drivers of the South America mining chemicals market.

According to TechSci report on, “South America Mining Chemicals Market – “South America Mining Chemicals Market -
By Country, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2027”, the South America Mining Chemicals Market stood at USD 751.24 Million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.60% during the forecast period. All the chemicals used to maximize the recovery of valuable minerals from the mineral mines are known as mining chemicals, which are a type of specialty chemicals used in mining operations. These chemicals are of various types depending upon the function they are used to carry out.

It is possible to achieve the goal of reducing carbon emissions through increasing the use of renewable and low-carbon gases (such as biomethane, syngas, and hydrogen) and developing carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology. Economies looking to cut greenhouse gas emissions must mine copper and lithium as much as they can which are used for solar panels and in electric vehicles which run on lithium batteries.

The governments of different nations are adopting several actions to reduce greenhouse gases, which is the primary reason for global warming. For instance, almost every country has signed on the Paris Agreement which has a long-term goal of bringing down the average global temperature to 2 degree Celsius by 2050 above pre-industrial levels which is only possible if countries implement renewable sources of energy in place of conventional sources such as fossil fuels, crude oil etc.
