Mining explosives, most based on ammonium nitrate and in the form of bulk or packaged types, are widely used in mines, quarrying and nonmetal mining as well as metal mining. Many coal mines use explosives to loosen the rock and coal. In surface mining, holes are drilled through the overburden, loaded with explosives, and discharged, shattering the rock in the overburden. In one underground mining method, the coal is blasted off the bed without any undercutting to help break it down. Actually, coal mine is the largest consumer of mining explosives, which held about75% market share.
Orica is the largest manufacturer of mining explosives. With manufacture facilities located in the important mining regions, the company has become a key player and has footprints in many countries. The company owns more than 20% share globally.
As for the consumption, countries which have large output of mines, such as China, USA, Australia and so on, are the key consumers. In addition, mining explosives industry is influenced by many factors, such as mining industry, government’s policies. Manufacturers should keep keen on the downstream industries as well as policy changes.
