Global Marine Mining Market: Drivers and Restraints
The increasing demand for metals for numerous applications is providing a significant push to the market. The escalating adoption of precious metals and metal nanoparticles, especially nickel, gold, and platinum in several industrial segments including printing inks, catalysts, and medical diagnostic agents is creating a high need for metal extraction. Moreover, the revived importance of phosphorous based artificial fertilizers is positively influencing the phosphorus nodule mining, which in turn has direct implications on the global marine mining market.
However, the environmental uncertainties associated with seabed exploration are compelling governments worldwide to form stringent regulations. These regulations are hindering the growth of the market. Nevertheless, the use of technologies such as SONAR in order to minimize interaction with aquatic life and maximize mineral extraction is likely to bode well for the growth of the market in the foreseeable future.
