Middle East and Africa Explosives Market Outlook

The Middle East and Africa explosives market size reached a volume of 1.32 MMTin2021. During the forecast period of between 2023 and 2028, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.70%, driven by the growing construction sector.

 

Key Trends in the Market

Explosives are objects or substances that can create an explosion because they contain a significant amount of expanding gas. When quickly released, this vast potential energy, which is typically accompanied by heat or pressure, has the power to explode in a very short amount of time. Explosives may contain nuclear material or chemical material. They come in a variety of types, such as high explosives and low explosives. Primary, secondary, and tertiary explosives, such as blasting agents, are subcategories of high explosives. 

 

  • Explosives are marketed as practical and direct solutions for the mining, armed forces, and construction industries. The Middle East and Africa explosives market is additionally anticipated to be driven by rising demand for dynamite and ammonium nitrate.
  • The market is being stimulated by the increased usage of explosives in the construction industry for activities including construction of roads, preparation of land for building foundations, and demolition activities. Construction procedures, notably demolition, can be completed quickly and economically due to the development of sophisticated explosives. Another benefit of employing explosives in demolition is that it takes less time and is extremely safe.
  • The Middle East and Africa explosives market is being driven by the rise in the demand for industrial explosives, particularly blasting agents like emulsions, as an alternative to mechanical machinery in the construction and tunnelling industries. The market for emulsion explosives is anticipated to increase even more as a result of these factors. Attempts made by governments of numerous countries to acquire rich mineral resources is further increasing the demand for explosives in the Middle East and Africa region.
  • An increase in private and public investments for various types of infrastructure to tap into the abundant mineral resources is predicted to fuel the explosives market. Demand for mining explosives is rising as development projects and tunnel building expand globally.

Market Share by End-Uses

With the increasing need for metals and minerals around the world, the mining sector is anticipated to dominate the Middle East and Africa explosives market. Quarrying, metal, coal, and non-metal mining make substantial use of mining explosives like RDX, ANF, and PETN. Explosives used in mining are essential in the coal mining industry. The need for strong explosives is rising due to increased demand for coal, rare earth metals such as gold and silver, and earth minerals like iron ore and bauxite in industries like thermal, chemical, and automotive.

 

The demand for explosives is anticipated to be significantly impacted by the growth of the construction industry as a result of recent development projects in the Middle East and Africa region. Due to intense development operations for roads and railroads during the past few years, roadway construction the tunnel construction have expanded, benefiting the construction industry.

 

Market Share by Country

Developing countries in Middle East and Africa region are concentrating on construction growth, which is also increasing the country's sales of industrial explosives, thereby driving the Middle East and Africa explosives market. South Africa is one of the world's biggest markets for explosives. The country has considerable demand from the coal, metal, quarry, and non-metal mining industries. 

 

The South African explosives market is expanding due to ongoing technological advancements in the mining sector that are reducing mining costs, raising blasting effectiveness, and driving explosives sales. Key market players such as AECI Limited and OMNIA Group (BME) are based out of South Africa, increasing the access of the country to high quality and specialised explosives. 

 

Competitive Landscape

AECI Limited, a South Africa-based company is a key collaborator in making mining safer and more effective for a better future. This is accomplished through virtual reality training, blast simulation, development of a ‘digital twin’ of the activities of clients, and on-site administration of the  chemical mineral extraction processes of clients. The company is heavily investing in its future expansion in the mining and manufacturing industries.
