Global mining chemicals market is expected to grow at CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. Mining chemicals are specialized chemicals that help to improve the efficacy and productivity of mining processes. Mining chemicals play a vital role in the processing of mineral ores. The consumption of precious metals and base metals has gradually increased due to their numerous applications in different industries. This increase in consumption of metals has led to an overall increase in mining activities around the globe. In metal mining processes, mining chemicals are required at the stage of processing the respective ores. Increasing investments and new mining projects are further expected to boost global mining chemicals market during the forecast period.

The global mining chemicals market is segmented based on type, application, region and company. Based on type, the market can be segmented into grinding aids, frothers, flocculants, solvent extractants, collectors and others, which include defoamers, corrosion inhibitors, antiscalants, dust suppressants, biocides, etc. Grinding aid represents the largest segment of global mining chemicals market followed by flocculants. Flocculants segment is expected to witness significant growth on account of its increasing use in water and wastewater treatment. Moreover, government regulations regarding industrial waste and environmental protection are anticipated to have a positive impact on the demand for flocculants. Based on application, the market can be categorized into mineral processing, explosives & drilling, water & wastewater treatment and others. Explosive & drilling application segment is the dominant as well as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Furthermore, on account of depleting mineral reserves, the demand for deep surface mining is growing at a rapid pace, thereby driving the growth of the explosive and drilling segment. The demand for wastewater treatment is anticipated to increase in the forthcoming years as mining industry release pollutants in the water bodies.

Regionally, the mining chemicals market is gaining traction and is expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific dominates the global mining chemicals market owing to surging demand of mining chemicals in economies of region such as China, India, among others.
