Key Takeaways – Emulsion Explosives Market Study

  • Bulk emulsion explosives are rapidly replacing packaged explosives in underground mining applications because of the additional benefits that they offer.
  • Tunnelling Apart from mining companies, these explosives are also being used in the construction industry for tunnelling and the demolition of old infrastructure. With more construction activities taking place around the globe, the demand for mining emulsion explosives has also increased tremendously.
  • Blasting agents are chosen over mechanical drills as they cover a wider area, consume less time, are easy to transport from one place to other, and are available at low costs.
  • The best sourcing practice for mining companies is to engage in long-term supply contracts with fully integrated, fully integrated, full-line emulsion explosive suppliers that produce their own blasting and explosives accessories.
  • The booming construction industry in developing economies such as China, India, and Brazil is further fueling the demand for emulsion explosives in the regions.
  • Consumer bargaining power is high, as there are many emulsion explosive suppliers in the market. Also, major mining manufacturers have strong negotiation power because of their large merged business volume.
  • Manufacturers cannot maintain sufficient stocks, owing to the regulatory framework for explosives that caps the limit of buffer stocks.

The market for emulsion explosives is currently growing at a moderate pace, as it is already mature in EU countries and witnessing a healthy growth in the Asian region. Also, over the recent past, the construction and mining industries have been focusing on worker safety while conducting blasting activities at their sites.

How is Emulsion Explosives Market Structure Defined?

Dominated by established international players, the emulsion explosives market is moderately fragmented. Some of the key players in the emulsion explosives market, such as Orica Limited, hold a major share of market pie in terms of revenue. The best sourcing practice for mining companies is to engage in long-term supply contracts with fully integrated, full-line emulsion explosive suppliers that produce their own blasting and explosives accessories.

Bulk Emulsion Market – How Growth will Unfold

In 2019, emulsion explosives worth over US$1.7 Bn were used in mining. Adoption in underground mining continues to influence the growth strategies, accounting for nearly 50% of total share, while manufacturers are focusing on capitalizing on other areas of application, such as blasting of hard rock, air blasting, and general blasting. Growing application in quarrying is expected to result in increased market share, owing to an unprecedented rise in the number of construction sites for rail and road tunnels, dams for hydroelectric and storage power plants across the globe.
