Froth Flotation Chemicals Market: About the Report
With the COVID-19 pandemic causing significant disruptions in the mining sector, growth registered by the froth flotation market is likely to be compromised. The market faces significant challenges ahead, as end users including mining, paper & pulp, industrial waste and sewage treatment among others continue to reel under the impact of the pandemic. Sluggish growth will remain constant in 2020. However, it is likely to recover from this temporary period of lull as soon as mining activities and operations across other industries resume in full capacity. The report examines evolving trends across end-use markets to present refined forecasts on the froth flotation chemicals market for the period of 2020 to2030.
Froth Flotation Chemicals Market Overview
The froth flotation chemicals market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of above 2% during the forecast period 2020-2030 to reach market value of more than US$ 2.2 Bn by the end of 2030. Increasing mining activities are expected to be the key drivers of the global froth flotation chemicals market.
Rising consumption of base metals such as iron, steel and aluminum, and others along with increasing popularity of precious metals such as silver, gold, and platinum are driving mining activities across the world. Surge in mining activities will have a direct impact on froth flotation chemicals market.
Increase in Mining Activities Expected to Boost Market Growth
Mining industry is the leading end user of froth flotation chemicals. The growth of mining industry thus impacts the froth flotation market directly. Various minerals are extracted using froth flotation method. Some of them are feldspar, quartz, calcite, potash, barite, phosphate and fluorspar among many others.
Countries in Asia such as China and India are witnessing a significant growth in the mining industry. This growth is expected to reflect in the growing demand for froth flotation chemicals in the region. Apart from Asia Pacific, North America is expected to see a rise in mining activities throughout the forecast period 2020-2030. This will bode well for the market in the coming years.
Expansion of Paper and Pulp Industry to Fuel Demand
Paper and pulp is one of the largest industries currently, with a volume of around 500 million tons. With rising concerns regarding environmental safety across the world, recycling of paper is gaining popularity. To reduce deforestation and its harmful impacts on the climate, paper and pulp recycling is being carried out extensively across the world.
This rising focus on recycling of paper and pulp is fueling the demand for froth flotation chemicals, as froth flotation is one of the most widely used methods for recycling paper. Froth flotation chemicals assist in extraction of hydrophobic pollutants from recycled material in order to provide fresh material in a process called deinking.
Harmful Environmental Impacts of Mining Might Act as Deterrent
Mining industry is the leading end user of the froth flotation chemicals market. Increasing activities in mining are resulting in surging use of froth flotation chemicals. However, it also creates more chemical waste which is harmful for the environment.
Mining produces large amount of waste called tailings. These tails contain dangerous minerals which are capable of polluting the environment. These might affect and pollute atmosphere, water surfaces and even ground water bodies. This factor is expected to be a key deterrent for the market growth in the near future.
Froth Flotation Chemical Market Insights by End-use Industry
Froth flotation chemicals market is segmented based on end-use industry into mining, pulp and paper, industrial waste and sewage treatment, and other industries.
Among these, mining is the largest end user and is expected to remain so by the end of forecast period owing to increase in mining activities across the world. Meanwhile, pulp and paper industry is projected to witness significant growth in the next decade.
Froth Flotation Chemical Market Insights by Reagent Type
Froth flotation chemicals are segmented based on reagent types as collectors, frothers, modifiers, and other reagent types.
Collectors are expected to cover majority of the market during forecast period. This is attributable to their properties which assist in boosting wettability of required minerals, reducing mixture stability and separation of mixtures.
Regional Outlook of Froth Flotation Chemicals Market
Asia Pacific is the most lucrative market for froth flotation chemicals and is expected to remain so through the forecast period. Growth in the region is driven by demand recorded in countries such as China and India backed by the rising industrialization and increasing mining activities.
Availability of minerals is key to the growing mining activities in India. The country produces and works with nearly 100 minerals, which also is an important source of foreign exchange. Recently the government of India has allowed 100% FDI in mining along with allowing private players participate in mining. This is propelling the froth flotation chemicals market growth further in the region.
North America and Europe market are expected to witness a significant growth over the forecast period. However, strict policies and regulations with respect to mining are predicted to hamper market growth.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint
“Regulations for cleaner emission fuels are expected to get more specific in the near future as concerns over environmental safety is taking precedence globally. Hence the role of froth flotation chemicals is expected to gain more prominence within the recycling industry, creating lucrative potential for manufacturing companies in the global market. On the contrary, mining activities are predicted to cause concerns related to hazardous emissions hindering the market growth in near future. Thus to tackle this problem, manufacturers have to find a balance in order to sustain in the long run.”
COVID-19 Impact on Froth Flotation Chemicals Market
COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the global economy since its advent. Froth flotation chemicals market too is affected by the impact, the pandemic had on the industries across the world. With halt in productions and lack of labor due to the social distancing norms, the mining activities were significantly disrupted. This has led to a sluggish demand for froth flotation chemicals in 2020.
As transportation was banned across the world for a significant time of the year and various restrictions continue to exist, the demand for froth flotation chemicals took a huge dip. Decelerating sales will continue especially since other end users such as paper and pulp industry are facing considerable challenges amid COVID-19 pandemic.
Although the industry has suffered losses, it is expected to recover by the beginning of 2021.
