In the year 2020, the fluorspar market is witnessing a downtrend owing to the negative impact of the COVID 19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has a rapid and serious impact on the global fluorspar market, which has increased the risk of shortages of goods and labor. Moreover, the pandemic situation has led to the closure of several businesses reducing the demand in the world, which in turn, is impeding the various industry.

The decrease in the supply chain of raw materials has impacted the growth of the fluorspar market. The slowdown in the production of parts and its raw materials have given rise to supply chain disruption in the fluorspar market. Many countries have closed their national borders and have enforced lockdowns since January 2020, which in turn, is hindering the market growth. The pandemic has hampered the manufacturing sector and economies globally. There is no clarity on the deeper effects has been assessed to date.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akshata, “The global fluorspar market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027 owing to increasing use of fluorspar for manufacturing cement, steel, and glass. It is widely used as a fluxing agent and mineralizing agent for making cement. Demand for acidspar is increasing for manufacturing hydrofluoric acid which is expected to boost the demand for acidspar during the forecast period. The acidspar segment, hydrofluoric acid segments are the most attractive segments in the market and are expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Key Takeaways from the Study

  • The players operating in the market are Canada Fluorspar, Mexichem Fluor, Minersa Minerals, Moodie Mineral Company, RUSAL, Sallies Limited, Seaforth Mineral & Ore Co. Ltd, and Zhejiang Yingpeng Chemical Ltd.

  • Asia Pacific region is dominating the global fluorspar market owing to increasing demand for fluorspar by industries in China, India, Japan, and others is responsible for dominance of this region.

  • The acidspar segment is expected to be most attractive segment during forecast period. Acid spar is used for manufacturing of hydrofluoric acid which is then used for producing fluorochemicals ad has wide applications in chemical industry. This is one of the major factors making this segment most attractive during forecast period.

  • Rising application of Hydrofluoric acid makes it most attractive segment during forecast period. Increasing application of hydrofluoric acid for numerous applications in industries such as pharmaceutical,  agrochemicals, petroleum production, electronics, and makes this segment most attractive during forecast period. The availability of cheaper and easy available metals such as aluminum, iron, steel, and other is expected to hinder the market growth

  • The steel production segment is expected to grow at significant CAGR during forecast period, owing to increasing application in consumer durables, automotive and construction industry.
