Mining Explosives Market is predicted to reach USD 17,008.4 million at a CAGR of 6.78% during the forecast period

Pune, India, Jan 2022, MRFR Press Release/Market Research Future has published a Half- Cooked Research Report on the Global Mining Explosives Market.

Market Synopsis

According to the MRFR analysis, the global Mining Explosives market size was valued at USD 15,193.30 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 17,008.4 million by the end of 2030 at a CAGR of 6.78%.

Explosives are a reactive mixture of a high-energy substance that explodes under high pressure and temperature. Explosives are classified as detonating (high explosive) or deflagrate (low explosive) based on the rate at which they explode (low explosive). In the global mining explosive market, packaged and emulsion explosives are gaining traction. Furthermore, mining resource extraction has resulted in global industrial development, particularly the emergence of new players such as Africa, Latin America, and Asia. As a result, the mining explosives market's growth prospects are heavily reliant on the metal and coal mining industries.

Mining Explosives has a high demand in coal mining industries. Explosives are used to extract coal mostly from underground mines compared to surface mines. Coal is among the important and reliable energy resources covering 30% of the global energy consumption. Increasing global demand for energy and the subsequent increase in the coal-fired thermal plant is expected to spur the demand for coal mining. The major coal-producing countries are China, the U.S., India, Indonesia, and South Africa. Furthermore, it is also widely used in the extraction of minerals. The surge in commodity demand from high technology-driven and industrializing countries has pushed the price of metals, minerals, and oil. This, in turn, has led to substantial growth in mining investment, of which increment share is concentrated in emerging markets.

However, stringent regulations and effects on health are estimated to hamper the growth of the global Mining Explosives market as it contains blasting agents such as ANFO, bulk emulsions, explosives, and slurries, which are hazardous to the environment. Nonetheless, the promising growth of mining industry in Middle East is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global market during the review period.

COVID-19 Analysis

COVID-19 has had a negative impact on overall chemical production, particularly mining explosive production, owing to supply chain disruptions around the world. The metal and mining industry's average share price has decreased over 10%, and many standalone companies have lost 40-50 percent of their market value. The pandemic has had an impact on global operations of various industries. Some of the industry's main companies, including BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, and Anglo American, have reported partial shutdowns, resulting in a production loss of about 30%. Furthermore, raw materials procurement was difficult, as the majority of raw materials suppliers in the market were forced to shut down their operations due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Many companies have halted production facilities around the world as a result of the situation. Some large companies that are still operating are only operating at 40-60% efficiency. However, by the end of 2021, the market is expected to return to normalcy.

Competitive Landscape

The global Mining Explosives market is highly fragmented and consists of many organized and unorganized industry players. Manufacturers focuses mainly on expansion of production capacities, continuous product launch, and collaborations with key stakeholders to gain a competitive advantage over other players. Key players include EPC Groupe (France), Hanwa Corp (South Korea), Incitec Pivot Ltd (Australia), Austin Powder Gmbh (Czech Republic), Eurenco SA. (France), Explosia, a.s. (Czech Republic), Nitroerg SA (Poland), BME South Africa (South Africa), Sasol Limited (South Africa),  Titanobel (France), Orica Limited (Australia), Yara (Norway), MAXAM (Peru), Nof Corporation (Japan), and Solar Industries India Ltd (India).


By Type

  • This segment is further segmented into bulk explosives, packaged explosives, and others

  • Bulk explosives accounted for the largest market share in the global mining explosives market. Bulk explosives are essential in mining, quarrying, and construction operations because they provide the energy needed to move a rock mass and reduce it to an optimal size.

  • Packged explosives segment consist of high strength, high water resistance, improved dig ability, minimized leaching, and reduced environmental impacts. These explosives are majorly used in underground mining and general blasting applications.

  • Others include ANFO, ammonium nitrate explosives (powder), bulk emulsion explosives, cartridge emulsion explosives, and others.

By Application

  • This segment is further segmented into coal mining, metal mining, and quarry & non-metal mining.

  • Coal mining accounted for the largest market share in the global mining explosives market. This is attributed to the increasing demand for coal in the steel manufacturing and power generation industry. Increasing mining exploration activities in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Australia, and the US provides a lucrative opportunity to the market players.

  • Metal miing segment accounted for second-largest market share in the global mining explosives market. Metal mining is the process of means to haul out metal deposits from underground and the surface of the earth. The metal mining industry refers to the location and extraction of metal and mineral reserves around the world.

  • Quarry and non-metal mining is expected to showcase significant growth in the global mining explosives market. Quarrying is the process of extracting rock, sand, and other minerals from ground sites. Quarries substantially produce coal, chemical grade limestone, gypsum, China clay, and silica sand.

By Region

  • North America: Market growth is driven by the strict environmental regulations, presence of numerous players in this region and the rising adoption of innovative technology. US account for largest market share in the region.

  • Europe: The growth in the region is mainly driven to rising demand for metals in this region results in the expansion of mining industries.

  • Asia-Pacific: This is the largest and fastest-growing regional market owing to the growing coal mining activities, rapid industrialization in the region, the presence of a considerable number of producers, infrastructure development, and growing exports.

  • Latin America: The growing demand is due to rise in industrialization and increasing mining activities in major countries.

  • Middle East & Africa: Growing investment in mining activities in the end-use industries is fueling the demand for Mining Explosives in the region.
