Dynamite is a mixture of a chemical compound that contains a large amount of potential energy and can explode under high heat and pressure. Depending on the speed at which the dynamite explodes, they are divided into two forms that can either detonate (high explosives) and deflagrate (low explosives). High explosives are further divided into primary and secondary explosives. High explosives are a leading segment of the market on account of the rising demand for ANFO and emulsion explosives in defense and quarrying application. ANFO is the most used type of explosive owing to the cost-efficient blasting agent and easy availability of raw material: ammonium nitrate. However, bulk explosives held the largest market share of 47.20% in 2016, and this trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period.

According to MRFR analysis, the global dynamite market is projected to reach USD 17,973.7 million by 2023. This growth can be attributed to the growing demand from the coal industry along with rapid development in construction activities. Furthermore, rising demand for infrastructral renovation is also expected to augment the demand for dynamites and fuel the market growth. The improving defense sector for homeland security and counterterrorism strategies along with the shipbuilding and submarines activities is expected to propel the product demand in the market. Ammonium nitrate when inhaled or ingested in high concentration can cause health issues. However, stringent regulations and workplace health concern of workers may challenge the market growth during the forecast period.
