Sodium Cyanide Market to Close in on US$ 3 Bn Valuation by 2030; Depleting Demand to be Witnessed from Most End-use Industries During COVID-19 Pandemic

Published On : Dec 02, 2020

Mining and metallurgy hold a prominent share in terms of consumption of sodium cyanide, owing to increased adoption in gold and silver mining. Sodium cyanide is also used in a wide range of applications such as pesticides, dyes & pigments, chemical synthesis, pharmaceuticals, and others, which bodes well for market expansion over the coming years.

As such, the global sodium cyanide market is anticipated to expand at a steady CAGR of over 4%, and be valued close to US$ 3 Bn by the end of 2030.

Key Takeaways from Sodium Cyanide Market Study

  • The solid segment accounts for a prominent share in the global sodium cyanide market, and is expected to dominate this space over the forecast period.
  • Mining and metallurgy is the most attractive application with the highest share, followed by chemical synthesis. The pharmaceuticals segment is expected to grow at higher rate as compared to other applications.
  • East Asia dominates the global sodium cyanide market, and is expected to grow at the highest rate owing to increasing gold mining activities in China. Latin America holds a significant share backed by a booming mining industry in Mexico.
  • Sodium cyanide consumption for mining and metallurgy is prominent in almost regions, excluding Japan and Europe, where chemical synthesis dominates the sodium cyanide market.
  • Lowest environmental impact among alternative gold ore processing methods and upswing in mining activities are prominent drivers of the sodium cyanide market.
  • As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, except for the pharmaceutical industry, most other end uses of sodium cyanide are witnessing decreased demand.

“Local and foreign investments in regions such as Latin America, for gold and silver extraction, have been increasing, which, in turn, is driving demand for sodium cyanide. Per ton consumption of sodium cyanide for gold processing is increasing as the average content of gold is declining gradually,” says a PMR analyst.
