Market Overview:

The global mercury ore market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for mercury from chemical engineering and medical applications. Mercury is used as a catalyst in various chemical processes and as a disinfectant in hospitals and clinics. In addition, the growing awareness about the harmful effects of mercury on human health is also driving the demand for mercury ore globally. The global mercury ore market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, it can be divided into high concentration, medium concentration, and low concentration segments. High concentration segment dominates the global market due to its widespread use in various industrial applications such as gold mining and production of chlorine gas among others.

Global Mercury Ore Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Mercury ore is a type of ore that contains mercury. Mercury is a valuable resource because it is used in many different products. It is used in thermometers, barometers, and other scientific instruments. It is also used in fluorescent light bulbs and dental fillings.

High Concentrations:

High Concentrations is a technology that enhances the efficiency of mercury ores. It involves separating impurities from the ore during processing and concentrating them to obtain high-purity mercury. The technique was developed by Hg Corporation in collaboration with UOP for commercial production of mercury from amalgam waste using wet chemistry techniques.

Medium Concentration:

Medium concentration is used in mercury ore market for the extraction of silver and gold. It is also used as a solvent in chemical industries. The major application of medium concentration is to extract the metals from their ores using leaching solutions. Owing to its properties such as corrosion resistance, high thermal stability, low volatility and easy handling it can be used for various applications including refining & purification of metals & chemicals industries which are expected to drive its demand over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

The chemical engineering application segment led the market and accounted for more than 35.0% share of the global volume in 2017. The use of mercury as a raw material is majorly limited to produce chlorine, silver, gold and other metals, and rare earth metals used in various applications including batteries, thermometers, switches & relays among others. However these are not enough to meet growing demand from various sectors such as electrical & electronics industry which is expected to propel growth over the forecast period.

In terms of revenue generation however chemical engineering was followed by metallurgy which accounted for a share of 34.9% in 2017 owing to increasing demand from battery manufacturers such as Samsung SDI Co., Ltd.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue with a share of over 45% in 2017. The region is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period owing to high demand for mercury from thermometers, barometers, and other scientific instruments. In addition, rising environmental concerns have resulted in increased production of less harmful products such as solar panels and batteries which will further drive the regional market growth.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization along with increasing population especially in China and India that leads to an increase in consumption levels for medicines Mercury globally. Moreover, economic development coupled with government initiatives aimed at promoting investments from foreign companies will boost industry expansion leading to higher product demand across various applications including chemical engineering and medicine.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the manufacturing and construction sectors
  • Growing use of mercury in gold mining and other industrial processes
  • Rising prices of mercury globally
  • Stringent environmental regulations on mercury emissions
  • Technological advancements that make recovery and recycling of mercury more efficient
