Published Date : Jun 2021 | No. of Pages : 150+ Pages | Category : Construction and Manufacturing

The global smart mining market size is projected to reach $23.5 billion in 2028, from $9.3 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 16.5% from 2021 to 2028.

Smart mining is a process that uses information, autonomy, and technology to obtain enhanced safety, reduce operational costs, and gain better productivity for a mine site. Mining corporations emphasize on enhancing productivity by providing state-of-the-art software & solutions. It also comprises remote-controlled robotic equipment for mineral & metal extraction, which is stated as telerobotic mining, and decreases the danger for miners.

Smart mining components and equipment find their application in both underground mining and surface mining, also known as open pit or open cast mining, operations. Although the integration of smart mining in underground mining has improved the working conditions on site as well as increased the productivities of underground mines. 

Increased awareness regarding the harsh influences of mining atmospheres such as UV exposure, dust, noise, chemical hazards, ground instability, and others cause health problems in the mine workers. This is influencing many key manufacturers to introduce advanced smart mining solutions in the smart mining market, which is one of the key drivers of the global market. Integration of autonomous fleet, remote-controlled equipment, and ventilation solutions offer safe working conditions and also improve the operational productivities. In addition, the growth of the market is driven by increased focus on safety & health, rise in adoption of IoT solutions, and increase in the implementation of autonomous equipment. However, lack of highly skilled and qualified labor and accessibility of poor infrastructure confine the growth of the market. The operation of smart mining equipment requires trained personnel to gain maximum efficiencies and reduce accidents on site. Thus, the unavailability of skilled labor can hamper the growth of the market. On the contrary, enforcement of stringent regulations such as the Environmental Protection Law and others by several governments to control emission & air pollution for environment protection are projected to offer remunerative opportunities for the smart mining market growth during the forecast period.

The surface mining type segment accounted for over half of the global smart mining market share in 2019, owing to large-scale surface mining activities conducted globally. By category, the automated equipment segment generated high revenues in the global market, owing to high adoption of autonomous mining equipment as well as recognition of advantages offered by the implementation of these equipment. However, the component segment is expected to witness rapid growth by 2027 due to constant technological advancements in the hardware and software components. 

North America to Hold Major Share

The discovery of shale formations, coupled with the global dependency on oil and gas resources, has created an unprecedented pace in the development of mining activities, especially in the oil and gas sector.

Some of the prominent players operating across the region, are focusing on providing real-time analysis with the evolution of the Internet. For instance, Cisco connected mining helps to gain real-time visibility into each step of the mining and production process, accurately monitor output, equipment, worker location, and security.

Wencolite fleet management has streamlined equipment assignment, payload compliance, dispatch, equipment health monitoring. Hence, providing easy-to-access on mine or quarry for a more productive and even safer operation. Latest technological breakthroughs have aided the advancement of new smart mining systems, which can make the overall processes more efficient and significantly improve accuracy in various services and solutions.
