Sodium Cyanide Market for Mining Industry: Introduction
Transparency Market Research delivers key insights on the global sodium cyanide market for mining industry. In terms of revenue, the global sodium cyanide market for mining industry is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period, owing to numerous factors, regarding which TMR offers thorough insights and forecasts in its report on the global sodium cyanide market for mining industry.
The global sodium cyanide market for mining industry has been positively impacted by the rise in production of gold, silver, and other precious metals across the globe. Thus, increase in production of gold, silver, and other precious metals is propelling the global sodium cyanide market for mining industry.
Sodium Cyanide Market for Mining Industry: Dynamics
Sodium cyanide is extensively used in gold and silver mining. Sodium cyanide is used in mining to extract gold and silver from ores, as these metals have high affinity toward sodium cyanide. Furthermore, low-grade ores and ores of gold and silver that cannot be treated with crushing and gravity separation use the sodium cyanide treatment method to separate gold from other impurities. The gold ore is added to the sodium cyanide solution, which leads to formation of gold molecules. Furthermore, treatment with zinc separates sodium cyanide from gold, resulting in the formation of solid gold.
Based on form, the global sodium cyanide market for mining industry has been be segmented into solid and liquid. The solid segment dominates the market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Higher market share of the solid segment can be ascribed to higher demand for solid sodium cyanide in the mining industry, as the solid form of sodium cyanide is easy to store and transport. However, mining companies are shifting toward liquid form of sodium cyanide. Exposure to solid form of sodium cyanide can be dangerous, due to its ability to slowly release the poisonous hydrogen cyanide gas in the air.
