Global Brine Concentration Minerals Market Outlook to 2029: Solar Evaporation Technology to Lead Market Between 2024 and 2029

Dublin, March 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Brine Concentration Minerals Market by Type (Sodium derivatives, Magnesium derivatives, Calcium derivatives, Potassium dereivatives), Technology (Solar evaporation, NF-RO-MF, Osmotically assisted RO), Application, and Region - Forecast to 2029" report has been added to's offering.

The Brine Concentration Minerals Market is projected to reach USD 1.7 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 8.1% from USD 1.1 billion in 2024. The brine concentration minerals market is propelled by pivotal drivers, with two key factors prominently influencing its trajectory. Firstly, the escalating demand for lithium-ion batteries stands out as a major driver. As the world transitions towards renewable energy and electric mobility, lithium-ion batteries have become indispensable in storing clean energy and powering electric vehicles. This surge in demand, particularly from the automotive and energy storage sectors, significantly boosts the need for lithium, a crucial component sourced from brine concentration minerals.

The growing emphasis on sustainable practices constitutes another impactful driver. Industries worldwide are increasingly prioritizing eco-friendly and sustainable methods for resource extraction, and brine concentration offers a more environmentally conscious alternative compared to traditional mining practices. The process minimizes the ecological footprint by utilizing solar evaporation techniques, reducing the need for energy-intensive procedures and avoiding the use of chemical reagents. This aligns with the global push towards sustainability and positions brine concentration minerals as a sought-after solution that meets the dual objectives of fulfilling growing demand while adhering to environmentally responsible practices. Together, these drivers underscore the significance of brine concentration minerals in a rapidly evolving and sustainable global industrial landscape.

Pharmaceutical and food & beverages, by application, accounts for the second-largest market share in 2023

The Pharmaceutical and food & beverages segment accounts for the second largest market share in the brine concentration minerals market due to the diverse applications of certain minerals in pharmaceuticals, food production, and beverage manufacturing. For example, minerals like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium derived from brine can be used as food additives, processing aids, or supplements. These minerals play essential roles in various biological processes and are crucial for human health.

In the pharmaceutical industry, brine-derived minerals may be utilized in the formulation of medications and dietary supplements. The pharmaceutical sector often requires high-purity materials, and brine concentration minerals can provide a source of such minerals for pharmaceutical applications. The Food & beverages industry, which includes the production of processed foods, beverages, and other consumables, utilizes brine-derived minerals as additives or ingredients in food processing. These minerals can contribute to flavor enhancement, preservation, and nutritional fortification.

NF-RO-MF is expected to be the fastest growing technology for brine concentration minerals market during the forecast period, in terms of value

The NF-RO-MF process is considered to bee the fastest growing technology in context of brine concentration and mineral extraction due to its efficiency in separating ions and contaminants from the brine. The combination of nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, and microfiltration allows for a multi-stage purification process, resulting in high-quality brine and concentrated minerals. This process is valued for its ability to achieve selective separation of minerals while minimizing environmental impact. Factors contributing to the potential growth of NF-RO-MF technology includes its effectiveness in producing high-purity minerals, its adaptability to various brine compositions, and the increasing emphasis on sustainable and efficient extraction methods in the mining and minerals industry.

Based on region, North America was the second largest market for brine concentration minerals market in 2023

North America holds the position as the second-largest market for brine concentration minerals after Asia Pacific, driven by a combination of economic, industrial, and strategic factors.
