North America is the region with the highest maturity in the explosives market, followed by Australia and Europe. The industry is significantly dominated by key players like Orica and Dyno Nobel, accounting for nearly half of the supply share. These companies are among the top suppliers of explosives to the major mining countries, including Australia and North America.
The industry growth is significantly supported by its end-use industries like coal, metal, quarrying, and non-metal. Coal is the dominant end-use industry, accounting for more than half of the global consumption. The global consumption of coal stood at a volume of around 7.2 million metric tons in 2018, with the industry accounting for nearly 70% of the global demand for explosives. The major coal-producing countries include the United States, Russia, China, India, Australia, and Indonesia. These countries together accounted for around 85% of the global coal production in 2018. Australia is one of the major coal-producing countries with a surplus supply. The region accounts for approximately 20% of the global production of coal. The rapidly increasing demand from the Southeast Asian regions from the coal mining sector is providing further impetus to the explosives industry growth.
Another primary growing end-use industry is the metal mining industry, which is expected to witness a healthy growth, especially due to the increasing demand from the emerging countries. Metal mining is the dominant end-use sector in Africa, accounting for more than half of the market share in terms of consumption. The demand for explosives is likely to witness a healthy growth in the region in the forecast period.
Properties and Applications
Explosives refer to the devices or substances that are reactive due to the massive volume of expanding gas inside them. They contain an enormous amount of potential energy that has the capability to explode within an extremely short period when it is suddenly released, generally accompanied by heat or pressure. The types of content present inside these explosives could be mechanical, chemical, or nuclear.
Explosives find their end-uses in:
The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The mining industry is significantly driving the growth of the explosives market. The growing coal, metals, quarrying, and non-metals, as well as the construction industry, is supporting the industry growth for explosives. The increasing demand in the end-use industry, especially for coal, is driving the industry growth further. High quality, low ash, and low sulphur types of coal are likely to push the industry growth of explosives further, especially in Australia. The growth in the commodity demand, as well as increased mineral production, has resulted in the growth of the explosives industry. The decline in the ore grades has resulted in more exploration activities, and thus propelled the growth of the industry further.
The Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing region due to the high demand for the product. The region is witnessing increasing mining activities due to advanced technical support from North America. The rising demand from the Southeast Asian countries is also providing further impetus to the mining industry, and, thus, the explosives market. New and small mining companies are looking to expand their business in battery materials, like lithium and cobalt, pushing the industry forward.
August 2016- Yara International (OTCMKTS: YARIY) opened the first modular ammonium nitrate plant in Australia. Ammonium nitrate is the primary component in the production of explosives used in industries like mining, construction, and quarrying.
