In addition, the global detonator market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 1.90%, with a value of USD 1450.3 million over the estimated 2020-2030.


Detonator Market Overview


The increasing demand for residential space is one of the most substantial factors driving the global detonator market growth in the upcoming years. Besides, mining activities also play an important role in expanding the market. In addition, the development in technology enables the manufacturers with efficient equipment for the manufacturing of explosives.


Detonators play a huge role in the chemical industries that serve the construction industry, oil and gas, and mining sectors. The demand for the detonator market trends directly depends on the end-use industries. The construction industry has been affected considerably due to the delay caused due to the spread of the global epidemic. However, the demand for coal has also decreased due to the global pandemic. There was a downfall of 8% in the first quarter of the year compared to the first quarter of the current year. In addition, the strict rules and regulations implemented by the government of numerous regions are estimated to decrease the growth of the global market.


Detonator Market Key Competitors


The key players of the global detonator market are Orica Limited (Australia), Dyno Nobel (US), AEL Intelligent Blasting (South Africa), and MAXAM (Australia), Poly Permanente Union Holding Group Limited (China), Sichuan Yahua Industrial Group CO., LTD (China), Enaex (Chile), BME South Africa (South Africa), Sasol (South Africa), and Austin Detonator (Czech Republic).


Industrial News


The increased spending on the defense industry and the defensive activities by the global governing bodies, and the growing arms and ammunition sector are likely to spur the explosives and pyrotechnics industry. Countries like India, the United States and China have also increased their overall spending on arms and ammunition to strengthen their armed forces.


In addition, the technological advancements and the necessity of smart weapons may subsequently propel the explosives and pyrotechnics market growth. The need for the safer explosives to replace the higher energetic explosives and propellants to meet safety needs is prompting the manufacturers of the military as well as the defensive equipment on a large scale.


Detonator Market Segmentation


The global detonator market is segmented based on type, and application.



  • By Type – Non-Electric, Electronic, and Electric

  • By Application – Coal mines, Metal mines, Non-metal mines, and Others


On the basis of type the global detonator market is divided into non-electric, electronic, and electric. The non-electric segment held the largest market share in 2019 as this segment has been witnessing significant growth in the demand for detonators owing to precise timing, reduced vibrations, and reduced sensitivity.


On the basis of application, the global detonator market is segmented into coal mines, metal mines, non-metal mines, and others. The coal mines segment is expected to hold the maximum market share, due to increase in demand for coal in various industries. This is expected to increase the demand of coal mines in detonator during the forecast period.


Detonator Market Regional Analysis


On the basis of region, the global detonator market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the rest of the world.
