The South American mining chemicals market is segmented on the basis of function (flotation reagents (collectors, depressants), extraction chemicals (diluents, extractants), thickeners (flocculants, coagulants), lubricants, pH adjusters, grinding aids, and others); on the basis of application (blasting & drilling, mineral processing, water & waste management, and others) and also on the basis of geography (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, Peru and the Rest of South America).
The explosive and drilling segment holds the fastest growing market by application and is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The increased demand for power is expected to increase the mining activities and, in turn, is expected to drive the explosives and drilling activities. The waste and water treatment segment has the largest market share by application and is expected to witness a moderate growth rate owing to the increasing regulations on end waste water disposal. By function type, the grinding chemicals segment has the highest market share.
Market Dynamics of the South American Mining Chemicals Market:
Growing demand for explosives and specialty chemicals
Increasing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable chemicals
Increasing mining activities
Increasing exploitation of low quality ores
