The rising demand for smelting chemicals in the process of metal extraction is expected to bolster healthy growth of the market, states Fortune Business Insights, in a report, The increasing consumer income can contribute significantly to the smelting chemicals market growth during the forecast period.

Market Driver:

Surging Demand for Precious Metals to Augment Growth

The increasing demand for precious metals, including gold, silver, and platinum, can spur the demand for smelting chemicals, which, in turn, can boost market growth.  The increasing demand for smelting chemicals in the extraction of desired ore or minerals is expected to incite the development of the market. Furthermore, smelting can improve earth efficiency and reduce environmental pollution, which, in turn, will aid the growth of the market. Besides, in the smelting process, the smelting chemicals, including hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide, are used as reducing agents. The reducing agent helps to remove the slag from the metal and also separates the oxygen atoms from the raw metal by a reduction process. The extraction of metal is performed at high temperatures where the elemental metal is collected, while other materials in the form of slag are extracted. The increasing demand for base metals, precious metals, rare earth metals, and non-metallic minerals can spur opportunities for the market.

However, smelting is a relatively expensive process, which can limit its adoption in extraction processes. Also, the need for alternative methods such as carbon reduction and electrolysis can further inhibit the growth of the market.
