Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound, which possesses high reactivity towards metals. It is white colored, water soluble solid, with a molecular formula of NaCN. Sodium cyanide is basic in nature, which when treated with acid gives highly toxic gas (hydrogen cyanide) as a byproduct. It is primarily used as a reagent for mining process in extraction of precious metals like gold, and silver from their ores. It is one of the most widely used chemicals worldwide. Sodium cyanide is used in a wide range of industrial applications such as mining, pharmaceuticals, etc. In addition, sodium cyanide is also used in electroplating, and as an insecticide to kill insects and pests.
Increasing consumption of sodium cyanide in mining industry as an extracting reagent is a major factor driving growth of the global sodium cyanide market currently. This can be attributed to sodium cyanide, being widely used in many industries owing to its economic benefits in extraction of gold and silver. In addition, rising demand for sodium cyanide in various end use industries such as inorganic chemicals, and pharmaceuticals as an important precursor, is another major factor expected to boost growth of the global sodium cyanide market over the forecast period.
However, harmful effects of sodium cyanide on human health, such as problems associated with skin and eyes is a major factor restraining growth of the global market currently. Also, stringent government regulations that limit use of sodium cyanide due to its toxicity, coupled with increasing availability of alternatives such as thiosulphates that are relatively safer than sodium cyanide are other major factors projected to hamper growth of the global sodium cyanide market over the forecast period.
Currently, market in Asia Pacific accounts for highest share in the global sodium cyanide market in terms of revenue, owing to growing demand for sodium cyanide, to be used as mining reagents, in industries in the region. The market in Latin America also accounted for significant revenue contribution in the global sodium cyanide market, owing to increasing consumption of sodium cyanide in various end-use industries, especially in pharmaceuticals and mining industries. The market in Europe is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period and is expected to register a CAGR of X.X% during the forecast period.
