Fluorspar Market to Surpass US$ 3 Bn by 2030 - Coherent Market Insights

Publish In: Aug 31, 2023

Fluorspar, also known as fluorite, is a nonmetallic mineral composed of 51.1 percent calcium and 48.9 percent fluorine. The material is used to produce hydrofluoric acid, which is a common chemical compound. This acid is widely used in many industries, including glass etching. Fluorspar is typically found in cubic form within cavities. In geological formations, fluorspar forms globular aggregates of radial fibrous texture.

The global fluorspar market is valued at 2.1 Billion in 2022. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of greater than 4.6% during the forecast period 2023-2030.

Global Fluorspar Market: Market Drivers

Increasing steel production is driving growth of the fluorspar market. According to the World Steel Association, global crude steel production in 2021 reached 1,911.9 million metric tons, an increase of 3.6% compared to 2020 due to the rebound after COVID-19. The demand for steel seems to be recovering, and it is expected to increase significantly in the forecasted period, especially from the Asia Pacific region.

Global Fluorspar Market: Market Opportunities

Growing demand from the paints and coatings industry is projected to offer significant growth opportunities. Also, the rise in the construction industry will further favor market growth in the near future.

Global Fluorspar Market: Market Restraints

Various other countries, such as China, India, and others, were imposed regulations during the mining and extraction of chemicals from fluorspar in order to reduce environmental pollution, thus hindering the market growth during the forecast period.

Global Fluorspar Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

The global mining industry was severely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, with mines, ports, rail  and other transportation infrastructure shut down, shipments trapped at sea or captured in port, and  uneven restrictions enforced from country to country, thereby impacting the fluorspar mining sector. However, despite the impact in 2020, the global mining economy ended the year and began 2021 on a high note, continuing to make significant contributions to the global economy.
