Liquid Sodium Cyanide Market Resurgent, Heightened Demand for Gold Mining Sustaining Growth

Pegged to surpass a value pool of nearly US$ 3 Bn by the end of the forecast period (2019-2027), Liquid Sodium cyanide is primarily used as a reagent in the mining & metallurgy industry for isolation of precious metals. It is used for efficient extraction of gold from low-grade ore. The heightened consumption of gold and silver is projected to positively impact market growth.

Demand for Liquid Sodium cyanide has received a significant uptick in the past five years owing to fluctuation in gold prices. Gold mining & metallurgy companies investing capital into exploration projects is further proliferating demand growth. This trend is expected to continue unabated in the forecast period. In Europe and Japan, Liquid Sodium cyanide market is driven by chelate production, animal feed, dyes & pigments and chemical intermediates vis-a-vis gold consumption. On this backdrop the global Liquid Sodium cyanide market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period (2019-2027).

Key Takeaways of Liquid Sodium cyanide Market Study

  • Mining & metallurgy segment dominates the market share and is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Owing to the rapid economic development, the need for a reagent for metallurgical processes like extracting precious metals from ores, Liquid Sodium cyanide is anticipated to have huge market potential in the future.
  • North America accounts for nearly 16% of global demand in which Mexico contributes more than 6% of the global demand for Liquid Sodium cyanide

 “Growing need for reagents for metallurgic processes like extracting of precious metal from ores and strong demand for gold across the globe will accelerate the growth of Liquid Sodium cyanide market in countries such as China and Australia.” says the Fact.MR analyst

APAC to Outpace Other Regions, as Mining Activities Intensify

Asia Pacific is presently maintaining its supremacy in the global Liquid Sodium cyanide market. This area is home to over half the market for Liquid Sodium cyanide along with China which holds the leading share in the region. Australia also has a significant number of producers of Liquid Sodium cyanide and the area has shown high demand growth for mining reagents.

Latin America also has a prominent position in the global market for Liquid Sodium cyanide. Countries like Chile, Peru, and Colombia have shown a surge in demand for mining reagents. Europe is anticipated to show a moderate growth trajectory in the coming years.

With the supply situation changing globally, capacity expansions are projected to increase in several European countries. Hence these regions will become a little less dependent on imports from APAC countries. The market supply gap for Liquid Sodium cyanide in North America is expected to narrow by the end of the forecast period with demand receiving a steady uptick and supply remaining at an even keel.
