Research Department Explosive (RDX) Market Statistics 2030 -

The global research department explosive (RDX) market was valued at $9.83 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $13.92 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.4% from 2021 to 2030.

Research department explosive (RDX) is a chemical compound, which is also known as royal demolition explosive or cyclonite or hexogen. RDX is a form of white powder or crystal, which is highly explosive in nature and exhibits the capability to create explosion when exposed to fire. In addition, RDX is a tasteless chemical and possess unknown odor, which make it difficult to detect in sensitive locations such as open fields, mines & others. Increase in demand for RDX in numerous military and civil applications such as pyrotechnics and cast plastic bonded explosives (PBX) charges has enabled manufacturers to develop and introduce effective explosive products, which have numerous applications. In addition, inclination toward mineral extraction activities in developed regions is expected to create ample opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Increase in mining activities

With increased demand for alternate power sources, mining activities have gained immense traction across the globe, which eventually require high-performance-based explosives. Moreover, key players operating in the chemical & explosive manufacturing industries are inclined toward offering advanced RDX & explosive system, which have impact on specific locations. For instance, the introduction of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to be used in mining & other applications has created a positive impact on the growth of the market across the globe. In addition, the increased production of coal supplements the growth of the market. For instance, in the year 2020, India produced 715.95 million tons of coal through underground mining activities. This increased production & mining activity, which positively impacted the growth of the market across the globe.

Rise in spending on defense & military applications

Rise in safety concerns and increase in need to protect national borders and boundaries are inclining the governments of different nations to spend more on their military, defense arms, and ammunition sectors. U.S., India, China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia are the top five defense and military applications spenders, accounting for more than 60% of the global military spending. RDX is primarily used in the military industry as an explosive that can be combined with other explosives such as trinitrotoluene to produce cyclotrons that produce bursting charges for mines, aerial bombs, and torpedoes as well as it can be used as a base charge for detonators. Manufacturers are increasing their R&D activities to make innovative products to help the defense industry. RDX is used in a variety of military applications such as bombs, munitions of all calibers, plastic explosives, and missile warheads. Furthermore, rise in terrorist attacks in different countries has led to increase in spending on military and defense applications, which drives the growth of the global RDX market.

Availability of alternate methods for mining & blasting

Technological advancement in mining activities has enabled key players operating in the industry to develop & introduce simpler & cleaner means for mining, which has affected the growth of the RDX market across the globe. Alternatives such as drilling and machine-based mining are considered cleaner & safer, due to the fact that they do not create shock waves as created due to RDX explosion, which sometimes leads to landslides or serious mishap. In addition, key players operating in mining & construction industry have opted such alternate methods for mining activities due to certain government restrictions related to the usage of low carbon & nitrogen emission explosives, which hamper the growth of the market across the globe.

Demand for RDX in military operations

Governments across the globe are inclined toward strengthening the military power of their countries, which has increased the demand for explosives & ammunitions. This is attributed to the fact that most of the countries do not have peaceful relations with their neighboring countries, which increases the threat of war or cross-border disputes. Hence, these countries are continuously developing and strengthening their military to tackle worst situations along with increasing their defense budget year-on-year. For instance, in 2020, the U.S. allocated $778 billion in its defense budget which was 4.4% higher than the 2019 budget. Similarly, China invested a total of $252 billion in 2020 on its military structure, which was 1.9% higher as compared to 2019 budget. Such increased budget allocations has attracted numerous key players operating in the industry to develop & introduce their efficient explosive products. This increased product development and budget allocation foster the demand for RDX in military operations, which is expected to augment the growth of the market across the globe.
