Key findings: Mining explosives

A comprehensive analysis of the impact of various cost drivers and other socio-economic factors on the category pricing dynamics has been offered in this mining explosives market research report. It also highlights the critical supplier selection insights that will guide the investors in partnering with the right mining explosives suppliers.

The frequency of non-metal mining activities such as stone quarrying is steadily increasing in the developing economies, thereby; accelerating the category spend momentum in those regions. Consumer-appliances such as electric vehicles, solar energy units, and cell phones that use lithium-ion batteries are becoming popular in almost every households. Consequently, this is triggering the mining activities to extract lithium, which, in other hand, is driving the category adoption rate across various geographies. However, the shift in consumption trends and tighter regulations are predicted to impede category growth among some of the significant economies across the globe.

Analyze the global category spend for mining explosives

An increase in the construction activities on a global scale is creating requirements for base metals and steel. This is inadvertently leading to an exponential demand for mining explosives that are required at the mining sites to extract the metals. Increasing demand for coal as a source of energy in the developing economies is resulting in an increasing category adoption rate, which is facilitating an increasing spend growth rate in the coming years.

This mining explosives market research report offers coverage of:

  • Regional spend dynamism and factors impacting costs
  • Total cost of ownership and cost-saving opportunities
  • Supply chain margins and pricing dynamics

 

Optimize category spend for mining explosives

Fluctuations in the raw material prices alter the category pricing dynamics of different regions at regular intervals. To tackle such uncertainties, buyers are advised to partner with mining explosives suppliers that have adopted backward integration for raw materials such as ammonium nitrate. The prices and supply of raw materials such as ammonium nitrate are highly volatile due to periodic surges in demand from the fertilizer and chemical industries.

This mining explosives sourcing and procurement report also offers coverage of:

  • Key category management objectives
  • Supplier cost breakup
  • Category pricing dynamics

 

Assess category spend for the US region

Consumers in the US are preferring renewable and alternative energy sources than coal as an energy source. This has caused a slump in the mining activities, thereby; reducing category adoption rate in the US. On the other hand, lithium production is currently witnessing a surge because of the high demand from industries like energy, storage, and electric vehicles. Governments initiatives to reduce the import of lithium is further encouraging mining activities to extract lithium, thereby; supplementing the category adoption rate in the US.
