Base Metal Mining Market Overview

Base Metal Mining Market size is expected to be valued at $465.44 billion by the end of the year 2026 and is set to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period from 2021-2026. The increase in demand for base metals from various end-use industries like building & construction, automotive industry, electrical & electronics industry and others is highly driving the base metal mining market. The base metals are mined using techniques like bioleaching and hydrometallurgy. In bioleaching, valuable metals are extracted from low-grade ores with the help of microorganisms like bacteria. Hydrometallurgy is a technique in which aqueous solutions, used in extracting metal from ores, concentrates, and recycled or residual materials. These techniques help in making sure the valuable minerals are extracted with the metal, and thus increasing the quality and efficiency of the base metal. Ion exchange resins are also used in the removal of calcium, iron, manganese salts and others from mineral ores for extracting elements such as aluminum, zinc and copper. The increasing demand for copper wires from the electrical and electronics industry is also hugely driving the demand for copper metal/ copper cathodes, which is further driving the base metal mining market.

COVID-19 impact

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the base metal mining market witnessed downfall in the growth and demand owing to various economic and legal restrictions imposed by many countries across the world. The decrease in the growth of construction industry, automotive industry, electrical and electronics industry during the year 2020 also highly affected the base metal mining market. The majority of demand for base metal like aluminum, copper and zinc comes from these end use industries. And therefore the decline in growth of the end use industries like building & construction, automotive, electrical and electronics also impacted the demand for base metals. However the base metal mining market is set to improve by the end of the year 2021.

Base Metal Mining Market Segment Analysis – By Product  

Aluminum segment held the largest share of 44% in the base metal mining market in the year 2020. Aluminum is commonly used in various products ranging from kitchen appliances to construction industry owing to its particular properties like resistance to corrosion, lightweight, soft & malleable and highly conductive nature. According to the International Aluminium Institute, the total production of aluminum across the world during the year 2020 was valued at 65,296 thousand metric tonnes, an increase of 2.57% from the production of  3,657 thousand metric tonnes during the year 2019. The daily average production of aluminum in 2020 was 178.4 metric tonnes. This is highly driving the aluminum segment in the base metal mining market.

Base Metal Mining Market Segment Analysis – By Type

Mineral processing segment held the largest share of 38% in the base metal mining market in the year 2020. Mineral processing is a treatment of crude ores and mineral products in order to segregate the valuable minerals from waste rocks. Various techniques such as bioleaching and hydrometallurgy is used in order to treat the minerals and extract them from the ores. Bioleaching and hydrometallurgy help in making sure that the valuable minerals are carefully extracted without any wastage. Most often the first step that is done after an ore is extracted is mineral processing for retaining the minerals. Therefore mineral processing segment held the largest share in the base metal mining market.

Base Metal Mining Market Segment Analysis – By End-Use Industry
