The "Global Mining Chemicals Market - Segmented by Type, Application, and Geography - Trends and Forecasts 2017 - 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global mining chemicals market is projected to reach USD 28.9 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.17% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020.

The global mining chemicals market is segmented on the basis of function (flotation reagents (collectors, depressants), extraction chemicals (dilutents, 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(Asia-Pacific (India, China, Japan, South Korea, the Rest of APAC), North America (United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Rest of North America), South America (Brazil, Argentina, and the Rest of South America), and Middle-East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and the Rest of MEA)).

The explosive and drilling segment holds the largest market share 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 is expected to witness a robust growth rate owing to the increasing regulations on end waste water disposal. By function type, the grinding chemicals segment has the highest market share.
