Mining Chemicals

US mining chemicals demand will reach $2.5 billion in 2011 based on gains in key markets such as coal mining and aggregate quarrying, which will boost demand for blasting agents. Explosives are the most important chemicals used in the mining industry and will provide the best opportunities.

This study analyzes the 21 billion pound US mining chemical industry. It presents historical demand data for 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by type (e.g., inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals and polymers); by function (e.g., explosives, leaching agents, PH adjusters, lubricants, flocculants); application (e.g., blasting and drilling, mineral processing, water and waste treatment); and mining market (e.g., coal, precious metals, ores, aggregates, clay).

The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major industry players including Dyno Nobel, Orica, Austin Powder, DuPont and Clariant.
