- Since the invention of Gunpowder in 1860 by Alfred Nobel mining industry was in need of initiating devices which helps in increasing blast size, improve safety during charging & blasting operation, as well as explosive performance. From Plain detonators & Safety fuse system to Shock-tube initiation system, commercial basting has made helped the above cause, however each system has some limitation in terms of accuracy of delay, safety requirement as well as complexity required in terms blast requirement of modern mining industry. Electronic Delay Detonators have came long way since their invention in late 90s. They have helped Blasting Engineers in solving modern mining requirement of Large blast with minimum Vibration, Better control on fragmentation, Blasting multi layer rock together, controlling throw & back break etc. Electronic Delay Detonators have been introduced in the Indian market in last 7-8 years mainly for Vibration controls. With increase knowledge Indian mining industry is now ready to embrace the other technological benefits of Electronic detonators. The papers make an attempt to highlight the benefits associated with use of Electronic detonators & future growth prospects of the same in Indian Mining & Construction industry
