According to the TMR report, declining ore grades in several mines all across the globe is a prominent factor impacting the global mining chemicals market. On one hand, declining ore grade compels mining companies to increase their respective activities pertaining to mineral processing to ensure cost-effective mineral extraction, which consequently drives the demand for mining chemicals. On the other hand, decreasing grades of ores also have an adverse impact on profitability because it entails greater investments into optimum mining techniques. Consumption levels and economic development directly affect the demand for minerals, since greater economic activity leads to a simultaneous increase in the supply of minerals. Rising demand for complex mining chemicals can also be attributed to the need for maintaining the costs of mining.
