The global dewatering aids for mining market is also estimated to witness growth on account of increasing mining waste globally. According to statistics by Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development Project, about 98 billion tons of mining waste is generated every year from 3,500 large-scale mining operations around the world. Furthermore, rising awareness about mining sludge disposal and increasing advances in sludge management processes as well as strict government rules and regulations for the treatment of untreated mining sludge are expected to drive the global dewatering aids market for the mining market during the forecast period.

Global Dewatering Aids for Mining Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Number of Mines According to statistics, in 2020, there were approximately 12,500 active mines in the United States, valued at over ~55 billion USD. An increasing number of mines are expected to eventually result in increased and sustainable production of minerals and metals in the industry, thereby increasing the waste/sludge ratio and to treat these sludges in an efficient manner, dewatering aids play an important role.  Hence, increasing number of mines globally, is anticipated to drive the growth of the market in the coming years.

  • Growth of Chemical IndustryAccording to statistics, in 2019, the Indian chemical industry was valued at around USD 175 billion, which is projected to grow to ~USD 300 billion by the end of 2025.

  • Increased Research & Development Expenditure – As per data by World Bank, global research and development expenditure in proportion with gross domestic product (GDP) was around 2.63% in 2020, up from 2.2% in 2018.

  • Rising Government Support and InitiativesAccording to the data, in 2022-25, the Indian government plans to monetize assets in the mining industry worth around USD 3.5 billion.

  • Rising Investment in Mining SectorAccording to the data, in 2021, around USD 70 billion was invested in the mining industry by top leading companies globally, up from 55 billion in 2019.


  • High Cost of Raw Materials
  • Lack of Universal Instructions Pertaining to Application of Dewatering Aids
  • Availability of Substitutes

The global dewatering aids for mining market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into sulfide mineral processing, non-sulfide mineral processing and coal cleaning. Out of these segments, coal cleaning segment is anticipated to garner the largest market share over the forecast period, owing to the increasing production of coal. As per data, in India, coal production stood at around 776 metric tons (MT) in 2022. Furthermore, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA) data, the total coal production in the United States stood at around 640 MT in 2019. Hence, such a factor is anticipated to propel the segment growth in the coming years.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Dewatering Aids for Mining Market Regional Growth

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018.
