Borehole Equipment Market, By Product

Fixed borehole equipment market will witness over 5% CAGR up to 2024. Increased demand from industrial sector including oil & gas and mining have positively fuelled demand. High strength and efficiency due to less exposure to machine depreciation and lack of movement will drive market growth in this segment. However, lack of demand for these machines from seismically active areas may hamper product demand.

Portable borehole equipment is expected to generate revenue over USD 6 billion by 2024. Ease in transportation, rotation, and ability to perform at most remote places are key factors driving product demand. Portable rig and drilling unit availability that can be transported manually enables the disassembling if required provides competitive edge to the portable borehole equipment. Rising application in MEA, where oil exploration and large mining activities take place will enhance product penetration.

Borehole Equipment Market, By Operation

Hydraulic operations accounted for over 60% of the global market share in 2016. Increasing preference for fire-resistant hydraulic fluid for underground mining is the major factor driving demand. Benefits such as easy to maintain along with constant torque or force provided regardless of change in machine speed has influenced hydraulic operations growth.

Pneumatic operations will witness growth over 5.5% up to 2024. Long operating cycles and need for less maintenance will drive the demand. Use of compressible gas resulting in equipment less subject to shock damage along with low chances of catching fire will augment the market growth. Increasing applications in the unstable environment where hydraulic or electric tools cannot be used give competitive advantage to pneumatic operations.

Borehole Equipment Market, By Application

Mining will account for over 60% of the market share by 2024. Evolution from underground to economical and advanced open pit mining is anticipated to boost the borehole equipment demand for mineral mining applications. Growth of high-performance machineries has made possible the extraction of ores of deteriorating grades deprived of increase of costs. This trend has enhanced the borehole equipment adoption by steel manufacturing companies who are planning to enter the mining sector for improving supplies of iron and coal ore.

Infrastructure market is anticipated to be worth over USD 9 billion by 2024. Residential, industrial, and commercial construction expansion owing to growth in public-private partnerships is anticipated to drive market growth.
