15-May-2019 | Zion Market Research

Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Mining Automation Market by Type (Equipment, Software, and Communication System), by Technique (Underground Mining and Surface Mining), and by Application (Metal Mining, Mineral Mining, and Coal Mining): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2018–2025”. According to the report, the global mining automation market was approximately USD 3.65 billion in 2018 and is expected to generate around USD 6.18 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of around 7.25% between 2019 and 2025.

Mining automation is the deployment of drones and robots to enhance the productivity of mining operations and improves workers’ safety working in underground mines. In the present scenario, with the digitization of technology, significant developments in mining are witnessed. The organizations engaged in the mining industry are significantly investing in their R&D to develop new devices and drones that can be utilized for underground mining activities. The need for optimizing mining operation costs along with less human intervention is the primary factor stimulating the mining automation market growth. Organizations like Rio Tinto Group, Tata Steel, and Komatsu are among the early adopters of drones and the automation technology. Moreover, the growing need for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in mineral exploration activities, as GIS helps the professionals in figuring out the unexplored and dangerous mine areas. This is another factor influencing this market’s development. However, the lack of skilled labor in operating the highly efficient equipment may put a hindrance on this market’s development in the upcoming years.

Global Mining Automation Market

Based on type, the mining automation market includes equipment, software, and communication system. The equipment segment is expected to dominate the market in the future, owing to the development of autonomous trucks, remote control devices, drones, etc. By technique, the market is categorized into underground mining and surface mining. Underground mining is expected to dominate the market in the future, as most of the mining activities are performed below the Earth’s surface. The application segment of the mining automation market comprises metal mining, coal mining, and mineral mining. Metal mining is projected to dominate globally in the years ahead, due to the growing acceptance of automation in metal exploration activities and the escalating demand for metals like lead, copper, zinc, and nickel by various end-use industries.

The Asia Pacific region holds an extensive share of the global mining automation market, due to the presence of a large number of mines in the region and the increased adoption of automation technologies for mining activities and operations in Australia. Moreover, the mining exploration activities in the untapped parts of China and India are likely to positively impact this regional market’s growth. The Middle Eastern and African region is expected to show modest development in the global mining automation market, as mineral mining activities are flourishing in the region and the growing regional demand for metal mining.

Some major industry players operating in the global mining automation market include Autonomous Solution, Atlas Copco, Caterpillar, Hexagon, Hitachi, Komatsu, MST (Mine Site Technologies), RPM Global Holdings, Sandvik, and Trimble.
