Mining chemicals are the chemicals used in the extraction of metal from ores. Different kinds of mining chemicals include frothers, flocculants, collectors, solvent extractants, grinding aids, depressants, activators and modifiers. They find application in areas like mineral processing, explosives and drilling, water and wastewater treatment, exploration and analysis.
Water & wastewater treatment industries are the largest end-users of the mining chemicals. They are followed by mining and explosives & drilling industries. Grinding aids are the largest product segment. They induce floatability in the ore, making metal extraction easier, leading to their increased consumption. Flocculants, frothers and solvent extractants follow them. Flocculants, in particular, have witnessed a remarkable increase in their application in the water treatment processes.
Mining activities for iron, zinc, copper and silver have increased in specific. This is due to their increased application in buildings & construction, packaging industry, oil & gas industries. This in turn has raised the demand of mining chemicals. Besides, the quality of ores is consistently falling down. This has forced the industries all over the world to revert to using mining chemicals, thus making mining chemicals a necessity. Industries have been investing a lot of money into mining chemicals to increase their productivity.
A substantial growth of global mining chemicals market has been observed in past few years mainly due to this reason. However, the stringent norms lay down by European Commission and similar bodies to protect the environment can have a negative impact on the growth of global mining chemicals market. Coupled with this, heavy transportation costs attributed to remote locations of mines have made this product expensive. This again can hamper the growth of the global mining chemicals market.
Asia-Pacific leads the global mining chemicals market in terms of both demand and production followed by North America and Europe. The key players in global mining chemicals market include BASF SE, Clariant AG, Cytec Industries, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, SNF FloMin and The Dow Chemical Company, Ashland, Dupont (EI) De Nemours, Ekof Mining & Water Solution GmbH, Exxon Mobil Corporation, FMC Corporation, General Electric Company, Huntsman Corporation, Kemira OYJ, Mathiesen Corporation, Maxam Australia Pty Ltd. and Minerals Technologies Inc.
