The Asia Pacific, the net exporting base of sodium cyanide, is expected to witness high growth rates in terms of demand. The rapid increase in mining activities in the region, along with the growing electroplating industry, is pushing the growth of the sodium cyanide market further. Both supply and demand in the region are quite high in the region. The Asia Pacific is the leading supply market for the product, accounting for nearly half the global supply of sodium cyanide. The sodium cyanide market in the region is being driven by the ready availability of feedstock and high capacity installation. The Asia Pacific is the largest exporter of sodium cyanide due to the surplus production in Asia owing to the low labour cost in the manufacturing of sodium cyanide, as compared to North America and Europe. Southeast Asia exports a significant volume of sodium cyanide to the West African region, like Ghana and Burkina Faso. China, a significant market within the Asia Pacific region, has a high domestic demand for sodium cyanide. It is also a major exporter, exporting to countries like Latin America, Africa, and India.
North America follows the Asia Pacific as the leading supplier and exporter of the substance. North America is one of the major exporting regions due to its surplus capacity. The region majorly exports to Latin America and Mexico and is a net exporter of the substance. The region also imports the substance, although in a lower amount, due to the preferences of consumers for overseas producers and specifications of the product grade. The market in the region is being propelled forward by the easy availability of feedstock, as well as the close access to the mining sites. In the forecast period, the industry is expected to be driven within the region by the anticipated increase in capacity for sodium cyanide in the coming years.
Properties and Applications
Sodium cyanide refers to an inorganic compound with the chemical formula, NaCN. It is a white, clean, and water-soluble solid. Cyanide has a greater affinity to metals, which results in high toxicity of this salt. The primary application sector for the product is in gold mining, which also exploits the high metal reactivity of the product. It is an extremely toxic substance that blocks many metabolic processes and is often used as a test reagent for the role of chemoreceptors. It is also used in a variety of industrial applications like:
The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
The global sodium cyanide market is being driven by the growing mining activities, especially in the Asia Pacific region. The ever-increasing demand for precious metals like gold is encouraging increased mining in the region, by both national and international mining companies. The easy availability of feedstock, hydrogen cyanide, is aiding the market growth in the region.
The demand for precious metals is aiding the growth of precious metals mining industries, especially in regions like Africa and Oceania, where the demand for sodium cyanide is growing. The mining industry is also witnessing healthy growth in the United States due to favourable changes in the policies; thus, further propelling the sodium cyanide industry forward.
The market is also driven by the growing demand from the application sectors like chemical intermediates and other materials. The use of sodium cyanide in the electroplating industry is also supporting the industry growth. Its excellent blending property makes it a useful intermediate in the electroplating industry.
