According to a new report published by Transparency Market Research (TMR) titled ‘Dust Suppression Control Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026′, the global dust suppression control market was valued more than US$ 1,150 Mn in 2017 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of more than 3.0% during the forecast period. Expansion in the global dust suppression control market is driven by factors such as increase in demand for these chemicals in construction and mining & refineries applications. Dust suppression control is used reduce fugitive dust emission in the building & construction industry. Dust suppression control provides better visibility and air quality at construction sites. Dust suppression control is also used in the chemical processing applications where large amount of material handling is involved. The dust suppression control market in Asia Pacific is expanding at a significant pace due to the increase in demand for these chemicals in construction applications.
Expansion in Construction Industry to Drive Dust Suppression Control Market
Dust suppression control chemicals used at construction sites help reduce fugitive dust particles in the air. This results in better site visibility, and better health of employees and people living in surrounding areas. The global construction industry is expanding at a significant pace. This is anticipated to increase dust emissions. In turn, this is projected to drive the demand for dust suppression control chemicals such as magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, lignosulfonates, polymer emulsion, and petroleum resins in the next few years. Additionally, rapid urbanization in developing countries such as China and India is likely to drive the overall construction output in these countries in the near future. This is anticipated to boost the dust suppression control market in China and India during the forecast period.
Increase in Demand for Dust Suppression Control in Mining & Refineries Industry
Dust at mining sites can cause serious health issues to employees working in the area as well as residents of nearby areas. Dust suppression control is extensively employed in the mining industry in surface and underground mining operations. Products that are used for dust suppression differ depending upon various site characters and soil composition and humidity. Increase in demand for metals and other minerals such as copper, coal, and coke is estimated to fuel mining activities. This is anticipated to drive the dust suppression control market.
Tar and Bitumen Emulsions to Dominate the Dust Suppression Control Market
In terms of type, the global dust suppression control market has been divided into hygroscopic salts, lignosulfonates, petroleum resins, polymer emulsions, tar and bitumen emulsion, and others. The tar and bitumen emulsion segment is anticipated to dominate the market due to its strong binding properties. This results in reduced fugitive dust emissions. The polymer emulsions segment is anticipated to expand at a significant pace from 2018 to 2026.
Rise in Usage of Dust Suppression Control in Developing Economies to Create Opportunities
In terms of region, the global dust suppression control market has been divided into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Rapid urbanization in emerging countries such as China, India, and Mexico is boosting the demand for new construction in these countries. This is driving the demand for concrete admixtures in these countries. In turn, this is propelling the global dust suppression control market.
