Global Industrial Explosives Market 

Market Overview

Industrial Explosives are high hazard blasting explosives primarily used in the mining, quarrying and construction industry. Various sectors of an economy are highly dependent upon the energy and construction of infrastructure, which is available from exploding the mines and quarries using industrial explosives. Blasting is used in both open pits and also in underground mining operations. The developing countries such as India and China are spending heavily on the construction of roads, railways and other infrastructure facilities which requires the industrial explosives to make way. Coal is used to produce 41% of the world's electricity needs and 29% total world energy supply. Industrial explosives need concrete management plan for its storage and handling along with the various explosives permit requirement.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast the global industrial explosives market size is set to reach USD 17,850 million by 2024 growing at a CAGR of 35.2%% over the forecast years. The growth of industrial explosives can be anticipated by the growth in mining and quarrying activities and technological advancements such as during the past two decades, ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate Fuel Oil), a powder explosive, whose formulations have gone through numerous innovations to improve its performance, shelf life, specific energy, porosity, density and water resistance.
