Surging Demand for Collectors and Diminishing Ore Quality Propel Mining Flotation Chemicals Market to Reach US$ 19,360.2 Million by 2033

The United States is projected to maintain its position as a leading consumer of mining flotation chemicals, with an anticipated 23.1% global market share. This prominence is driven by a substantial surge in the demand for mining products, including minerals, ores, and metals, as essential resources for construction and industrial processes that support urbanization.

NEWARK, Del, Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The mining flotation chemicals market is forecast to experience a growth of 5% CAGR over the estimated period, as per FMI’s analysis. The industry’s size is predicted to reach a market value of US$ 11,885.5 million in 2023.

Standard copper ore grade has significantly reduced in the last few years. Mineral ores’ grades are reducing owing to aging mineral resources. As various chemicals are required to restore the ideal mineral, the requirement for mining flotation chemicals is expected to increase as ore grades decline.

Chemical firms working in mining flotation are currently focusing on understanding better flotation collector feedback to different mineralogy species. The market has recently observed a trend toward the creation of novel frothers. Shifting from high molecular structure glycol-based frothers to MIBC also permitted coarser grinding in the mill.

The industry players also dive deep into what makes the flotation collectors tick to different mineralogy species. By understanding the science behind it, the players customize chemical responses to improve the ore processing efficiency. Producers are constantly working toward gaining a better grip on consumers wanting to distribute customized reagents.

“The market research study highlights the significant role of mining flotation chemicals in the global industry. These chemicals play a crucial role in separating valuable minerals from ore during flotation, contributing to improved mineral recovery and reduced environmental impact. As the mining sector continues to expand, the demand for these chemicals is expected to grow, presenting substantial opportunities for market players.” Nikhil Kaitwade, Associate Vice President at Future Market Insights (FMI).

Key Developments Taking Place in the Market

  • FMC Corporation has dedicated investment of above US$ 50 million in June 2021 to the next three years. This investment is aimed at capital improvement projects like a renewal of the research laboratory and greenhouse of the company’s research and development H.Q. in Newark, Delaware.
  • BASF and Moleaer came into a strategic alliance to profit from the mining field in November 2022. Through this alliance, both companies are leveraging chemical, gas transport, mineral processing, gas transport, and nanobubble technologies. The main goal of this development is to improve the extraction rates from copper ores to a high level of chalcopyrite, which has originally been hard to leach, by concentrating on the copper leaching process.
  • Arkema entirely acquired ArrMaz in July 2020. ArrMaz has over US$ 290 million in sales from North America, Asia, South America, and the Middle East, and Africa.
  • Solvay introduced Polycare Heat Therapy in March 2023 for bio-based thermoprotection in hair care. The product is a non-ecotoxic, double-derivatized cationic guar active ingredient that progresses the global trend of silicone-free and bio-based solutions in hair care. It also offers brilliant thermal protection in transparent preparations.
