Surface Mining Equipment to Record Accelerated Growth

The prominent market players in the mining industry are modifying the equipment toward automation accompanying with the electrification trend. Market players such as Komatsu and Caterpillar in sites such as Gabriela Mistral and Solomon have tested the autonomous mining equipment since 2008. With exhaust emission limits, being reduced globally, the manufacturers operating in this market are facing issues to achieve an optimum equilibrium between the output received, the incurred cost, and profit margins by adhering to the government regulations. It is imperative to increase the efficiency of mining equipment, as the industry is in immediate effect by the demand and pricing of the mining products, the margins with the operators are quite low. This means if the efficient os improved, this will improve the profitability of the business. OEMs such as Caterpillar and Komatsu are giving retrofit alternative on the existing fleet. As the mining equipment performs 24X7, which is a higher number of working hours, there is a continuous demand and wear and tear for this equipment. The surface mining equipment is expected to register the fastest growth owing to its equipment offerings, extensive operation and ease of autonomous adoption in the equipment type.

Asia Pacific to Register Highest Market Growth

Asia- Pacific recorded the highest market share in 2018 and is estimated to continue this trend during the forecast period. Owing to factors such as metal and coal mining in this region. Prominent global players are extending their presence in developing nations such as Malaysia, India, Indonesia, to explore the growth opportunities. For example, Atlas Copco had invested $13.4 million for the expansion of the factory in Hyderabad, India, doubling its capacity.
