Market Segment Insights
The BFSI segment accounts for key share of the market and expected to grow at a rapid pace
Based on functions, the mining chemicals market is segregated into grinding aids, flotation chemicals, and extraction chemicals. The flotation chemicals segment is sub-segmented into flocculants, collectors, frothers, dispersants, and depressants. The extraction chemicals segment is sub-segmented into extractants and diluents. The grinding aids segment accounts for a key share of the market. The growth of the market is attributed to new mining project and rapid economic expansion. However, the extraction chemicals segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to increase in metal price, increase in demand for specialty chemicals, and increase in mineral and metal mining capacity.
The mineral processing segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace
Based on applications, the mining chemicals market is fragmented into wastewater treatment and mineral processing. Mineral processing is an art of treating mineral products and crude ores in order to segregate the important minerals from the gangue, or waste rock. It is the first step that most ores go through after mining in order to give a more substance for the procedures. Wastewater treatment used to extract contaminants from sewage or wastewater and convert into useful water that can be returned to water cycle. The wastewater consists of domestic, agricultural, and industrial. The main objective of wastewater treatment is to permit industrial and human effluent to be disposed without affecting environment and human health.
