Global Froth Flotation Chemicals Market - Segmented by Reagent Type, End-Users, and Geography (2016 - 2021)
The global froth flotation chemicals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period. The global revenue will increase from USD XX. XX billion in 2016 to USD XX.XX billion by 2021.
The froth flotation chemicals market is mainly driven by the increasing mining activities in countries like Canada, Australia, Mexico, etc., and the large-scale urbanization & increasing construction activities in the emerging economies. However, there are a few restraints for the froth flotation chemicals market, which include harmful after effects of flotation process in the mining industry and continued challenging economic conditions in the emerging markets.
Froth flotation process is used mainly for ore beneficiation, in which valuable minerals are separated from ores or worthless materials or other minerals, using reagents and induce them on the surface of froth layer. The froth flotation chemicals market is segmented by its reagent type, into collectors (cationic, anionic, and non-ionic), frothers (acidic, basic, and neutral), modifiers (depressants, pH modifiers, activators, and deactivators), and others. Neutral frothers are further segmented into alcohol type, alkoxy type, and polyglycol type.
The market is also segmented by end-user industry into mining, agro-chemicals (fertilizers), pulp & paper, oil & gas (bitumen extraction), industrial waste & sewage treatment, food & beverage, and others (electric power, plastic recycling, etc.). Mining and metallurgical process for mineral extraction from ore are the largest end-user by revenue and is the major driving market for the froth flotation chemicals, globally. The usage of froth flotation chemicals has been increasing in other applications as well, such as food & beverage processing for removal of fats, oils, and greases from wastewater and to reduce the oil contaminant in the product.
The market also has been further segmented by geography into Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Rest of APAC), North America (the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Russia, and Rest of Europe), South America (Brazil, Argentina, & others) and the Middle East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and others).
