The global froth flotation chemicals market was valued at USD 1,775.38 million in 2017 and is expected to record a CAGR of 3.74% over the forecast period of 2018-2023.
The demand for froth flotation chemicals is primarily driven by applications in processes of the mining industry, followed by the pulp and paper industry. Owing to the high number of mines, China is the largest consumer of froth flotation chemicals. The country is one of the largest producers and consumers of mining products. Froth floatation chemicals are used in the mining industry, to recover minerals from slurry, separate impurities, purify certain minerals, and in several other applications. The chemicals are employed in wastewater treatment, paper & pulp production, and other uses. The consumer demand for paper and other products related to the paper sector has increased over time. Being a highly competitive market with low margins, this segment has witnessed significant growth. On the other hand, harmful after-effects of flotation process in the mining industry and various policies that ensure minimal environmental impact during production, are expected to hamper the growth of the market.
The market has been segmented based on type and end-user industry. Based on type, the market is segmented into collector, frother, modifier, and others. The collector segment had the lion’s share of the market in 2017. Based on end-user industry, the market is segmented into mining, pulp & paper, industrial waste & sewage treatment, and others. The mining segment accounted for the highest share (more than 70%) in 2017, and is also poised to record the highest CAGR over the forecast period.
