Flotation is the process used to separate and concentrate ores by altering their surfaces to a hydrophilic or hydrophobic condition. Flotation reagents are the chemicals used for the froth flotation process. They include pH regulators, slime dispersants, conditioning agents, collectors, resurfacing agents, wetting agents, and frothers. These reagents help in aeration of minerals in water which facilitates the attachment of air bubbles to selected minerals and drifts them. Once at the surface, the selected minerals are supported by a froth layer until they are removed. The materials which are unattached to air bubbles remain submerged in the pulp. The mining industry utilizes these chemicals in all stages of production to increase the efficiency and productivity of the mining processes such as the extraction and recovery of minerals from ores. The flotation reagents market is projected to reach USD 5.55 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2018 and 2023. However, the slow growth of the mining industry in developed countries is expected to restrain the growth of the flotation reagents market globally.
The flotation reagents market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period. The market in China is projected to register the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023, in terms of value. The growth of the market in APAC can be attributed to the increased use of flotation reagents in various applications such as water & wastewater treatment, explosives & drilling, and mineral processing. The APAC region is witnessing an increased demand for flotation reagents, especially from China, India, and the Southeast Asian countries. Factors such as an increase in mining activities and increasing investment in mining projects are expected to drive the market in the region during the forecast period.
