Report Says Market for Mining Explosives Expected to Hit $33B by 2031

A new TMR study has found that advanced explosives delivery technologies and the increase in the adoption of digital tools are enhancing the outlook of the mining explosives market. The study notes that it is expected that flourishing coal and metal mining activities in countries around the globe will create significant streams of revenue for the market. Projections also show that the size of the global mining explosives market will reach at least $32.6 billion by the end of 2031.

Below are some of the key findings of the study on the mining explosives market.

Metal mining and coal mining activities provide enormous revenue potential

The study’s authors discovered that great demand for mining explosives in metal mining, coal mining and other quarrying activities had boosted the market’s growth. They highlighted a huge demand for construction aggregates, which could be obtained from quarrying and would in turn increase demand for products in this market.

They also noted that the value chain had been improved by the willingness of miners to adopt more sustainable and precise mining technologies. In addition, they noted there was need for new formulations to be applied in the extraction and mining of rare earth minerals.

In their report, the authors forecasted that the coal mining segment would grow at a compound annual growth rate of about 2.6% during the period between 2021 and 2031.

Digital technologies enhance the value chain

The study also found that the need to improve downstream operations had created profitable avenues in this explosives market. The authors also observed that the widespread smuggling of explosives had prompted mining companies to adopt the use of track and trace technologies.

Nonmetal mining is a lucrative avenue

The authors also discovered that applications in nonmetal mining presented a profitable avenue, noting that digital tools were increasingly being adopted for such operations.

The study also highlighted some of the key drivers of the mining explosives market, with the authors explaining that the growing emphasis on making mining sustainable across the globe was a key driver of this flourishing market. They noted that the digitization of mining processes had also opened up new profitable avenues.

In addition, the authors stated that a number of countries in North America, Latin America and the Asia Pacific had made encouraging strides that would expand the avenues. Furthermore, they noted that the increasing demand for metals and minerals in industrialized countries would drive the growth of the mining explosives market.

This increased demand is helping extraction companies such as Hecla Mining Company (NYSE: HL) to offer more shareholder value as the world can’t seem to get enough of several key minerals, including gold and copper.
