Why is Demand for Wet Dust Suppressants Surging across Industries?

Wet dust suppressants hold around 95% market share, and the segment is expected to expand at 5.5% CAGR through 2031.

Actors are exploring betterment of suppressant materials to capture unexplored opportunities in the market. Market players have realized the importance of using surfactants in water to enhance the capabilities of suppressants. Wet suppressant usage is prominently driven by increased demand from mining and construction industries.

Wet suppressants include hygroscopic suppressants, adhesives, petroleum emulsions, polymer emulsions, electro-chemicals, and others. These products have gained traction as they cater to changing end-use industry preferences. End users are deeply acknowledging the upper edge of wet suppressants over dry suppressants, with additional innovation for chemical composition.

Using surfactants in water notably improves the binding properties of dust suppressants, especially with dust particles such as coal, without the need for watering that affects the calorific value of coal.


Which End-use Industry Generates Most Revenue for Dust Suppressants?

Mining, as an end use industry, accounted for around 50%of overall demand for dust suppressants in 2020. Growing concerns regarding cognitive healthy environment and changing government regulations are major driving factors for this segment.

Occupation health workers working at mining sites are seen facing immune health issues such as allergies, asthma, and others, which has boosted the potential use of dust suppressants at these sites to control dust emissions.

Governments are now focussing on improving air quality index of the environment. Mining industries are releasing maximum dust emissions as compared to other end-use industries. Dust suppressants are evidently used in pit to port applications and continue to thrive regarding overall consumption potential.

Which Type of Dust Suppressants Hold Lucrative Avenues for Manufacturers?

Adhesives accounted for 26% revenue share in 2020, and are expected to progress at a CAGR of close to 6% over the next ten years.

Adhesive suppressants are most prominently being used, followed by hygroscopic suppressants, petroleum emulsions, and electro-chemicals. Industries prefer adhesive-based suppressants to increase the dust binding capabilities during dust control.

Increased innovation and research in providing high-end composition of suppressants is fuelling the segment with enormous capabilities to foster swelling fortunes. These adhesives are available as lignosulfonate and calcium lignosulfonate, which provides excellent dust control capabilities as compared to other suppressants.

How Has COVID-19 Contracted the Dust Control Market?

COVID-19 has significantly degraded demand for dust suppressants, as globally, most manufacturing sites and production houses across key countries were shut. The dust suppressants industry, which was growing at around 4.5% annually, witnessed a year-on-year reduction of nearly 2.5% in 2020, with the onset of COVID-19.

Highest hit in demand was observed in the 2nd quarter of the year, when end-use industries such as mining and construction were badly affected.

The global business of dust suppressants is now into a recovery phase, where market leaders are strategizing to put in pace robust supply chains and production units to cater to swelling demand. Key players are focusing on improving capacity utilization rates to flourish in this space.
