The global market for mining chemicals, estimated at US$21.8 billion in 2015, forecast at US$23.2 billion in 2016 and further expected to maintain a CAGR of 6.6% between 2014 and 2020 to reach a projected US$30.1 billion by 2020.
The processes involved in mining depend to a large extent on mining chemicals for improving productivity and efficiency. The global mining industry is confronting the challenge of low productivity as a consequence of depleting reserves of high quality ore grades, which has resulted in exploiting deposits that lie deeper in the earth’s crust. This procedure is marked by complex extraction processes that necessitate using advanced mining chemicals for providing assistance in extracting and processing ores of low quality. The complexity in extracting ore deposits of lower grade has led to the generation of an increasing demand for high quality chemical solutions.
Mining commodity prices have been witnessing a downward spiral in recent times, with investment cutbacks and increasing cost of production further compounding the issue. Situations such as these demand increasing mining productivity using prudent means. The requirement for superior quality and technologically advanced mining chemicals is also being dictated by high energy costs expended in deeper mining and processing methods. Demand for specialized chemicals has been growing due to the criticality of improving metal recovery from mining operations.
