Global Mining Explosives Market Thrives as Exploration Activities for Rare Earth Metals Surge Worldwide

3 October 2023

The "Mining Explosives Market Forecast to 2030 - Global Analysis By Type an Application" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global mining explosives market, valued at US$ 18.35 billion in 2022, is projected to experience substantial growth and reach US$ 25.09 billion by 2030.

This anticipated growth, at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2022 to 2030, is attributed to the increasing demand for rare earth metals, which are vital components in various industries, including electronics, renewable energy, automotive, defense & aerospace, and medical equipment.

Rare earth metals, known for their unique properties, are experiencing growing demand across multiple sectors. To meet this demand, the exploration of new rare earth metal deposits has become essential. Notably, in April 2023, the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) identified significant deposits of 15 rare earth elements (REE) in India.

Successful exploration results and the identification of economically viable rare earth metal deposits are expected to lead to expanded mining operations. However, the preparation of mining sites, including land clearing, terrain leveling, access road construction, and infrastructure development, is necessary before mining operations can commence. Mining explosives play a pivotal role in these activities, aiding in land clearance, shaping the terrain, and building access routes.

Furthermore, the extraction of rare earth metals often involves breaking down hard rock formations, which requires extensive drilling and blasting. Mining explosives are essential for breaking rocks and facilitating access to mineral-rich areas. As exploration efforts transition to production, the demand for mining explosives is anticipated to increase, supporting larger-scale mining activities. Thus, the growing exploration activities for rare earth metals present lucrative opportunities for the global mining explosives market from 2022 to 2030.

Market Segmentation

The global mining explosives market is segmented by type into several categories, including trinitrotoluene (TNT), ammonium nitrate/fuel oil (ANFO), RDX, pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), and others. ANFO held the largest share of the global mining explosives market in 2022. RDX is expected to be another attractive segment during the forecast period. RDX, a nitramine explosive compound, is highly versatile and can be used as a propellant, gunpowder, or high explosive, depending on the industry's application. Its stability and explosive properties make it a valuable resource.

Regional Insights

In 2022, the Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest revenue share of the global mining explosives market. North America is expected to become another prominent region in the near future. North America witnessed a 13.8% increase in mining production rates during the period of 2000-2020, accounting for 15.4% of global mineral production in 2020. The region's expanding mineral exploration and production activities indicate a growing potential for the use of mining explosives in mining operations.

Competitive Landscape

Key players operating in the global mining explosives market include Orica Limited, Al Fajar Al Alamia Co SAOG, Dyno Nobel, China Poly Group Corporation, NOF Corporation, Hanwha Group, Anhui Jiangnan Chemical Co Ltd, Koryo Nobel Explosives, Solar Group, and Omnia Group Company. These players are implementing various strategies, such as investments in research and development and the launch of innovative products, to maintain a competitive edge in the market. Their focus on high-quality and innovative product offerings demonstrates their commitment to meeting customer requirements.
