This, in turn, is anticipated to accelerate the demand for industrial explosives in the Latin America and Asia Pacific regions. Furthermore, mining and exploration enterprises are channelizing investments for the extraction of minerals from deeper levels and thus are installing innovative technologies which in turn is driving the demand for emulsions and high explosives. However, growing number of mature mines as well as increasing regulations on the use of toxic explosives are some factors anticipated to impede the market growth.

Increasing usage of ammonium nitrate fuel oil as blasting agent and increasing preference towards dynamite as an igniting agent are some major factors expected to drive the industrial explosives market over the forecast period. Moreover, use of industrial explosives over mechanical drills helps in reducing mineral loss since the blast is done on the upper surface whereas mechanical drills penetrate through the rocks containing minerals.
