Impact of COVID 19

Many mining centers are working with limited number of resources, reducing the overall production; thus, market is impacted. Certain actions taken by governments of many countries to control the spread of COVID 19, has slightly limited the growth of biomining market. Because of the aforementioned reasons, in 2020, COVID 19 has resulted into a decline of about 10% in the total revenue generated by the global biomining market as compare to 2019. 

Europe to Dominate the global Biomining market

The global Biomining market covers the six regions, namely Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America (LATAM), Middle East and Africa, including all the key economies in these regions. The global Biomining market report from Credence Research offers a detailed insight on key regional markets. Europe dominated with over 30% share in 2020.

Global Biomining Market is led by the slope process

Slope, Heap, and In-situ are the key process types through which biomining is performed. In 2020, Slope biomining process accounted for the largest share of biomining market. Slope biomining process is the most followed process because of its existence in the market from long time. However, Heap process is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.  

Copper would continue to dominate the global biomining market in terms of type of metal extracted

Copper, Iron, Gold, Zinc and Cobalt are some of the major types of metal extracted through biomining process. Copper segment accounted for the largest share in 2020 of the biomining market in 2020. Among all the metal, copper is the most used category across the globe. This is largely due to high demand for copper in various industries such as Automobile and Healthcare.
