Global Mining Chemicals Market to Reach US$ 9.3 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Mining Activities

Published on Jul 28, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Mining Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global mining chemicals market reached a value of US$ 7.1 Billion in 2021. Mining chemicals include various compounds that are manufactured from sulfuric acid, cyanide, mercury, nitric acid, and lead, which are utilized for mineral processing, explosives and drilling. They are mainly used for reducing the moisture content present during the filtration of mineral slurries of oxide ores of zinc, iron and copper as well as enhancing the efficiency of heating, condensing and cooling processes. Apart from this, they are commonly utilized as a dust control agent and soil stabilizer. Some of the commonly utilized mining chemicals include coagulant, dewatering, heat-transfer fluid and dust control suppressants that are widely adopted as thickeners, diluents and coagulants.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
