Surface mining equipment market size is forecast to reach USD 28.97 billion by 2022; according to a new industry research report published by Global Market Insights Inc. Strong metallic ore demand outlook, should drive industry growth for the next six years. Proliferating exploration in the mining industry, coupled with growing demand for sophestication in equipments, especially from emerging market will help demand evolution.
Along with enabling precision, technology innovation also facilitates surface stability and embankment and selective mining options for high quality extraction. Vibration and noise reduction offered by these equipments allow mining process to be somewhat less hazardous. Also, surface mining equipment market has potential to reduce processing costs and improve profit margins for industry participants.
Multiple functions offered by surface mining equipment may eliminate supplementary procurement, especially for crushing. These machines have the ability to dump material directly into dumper trucks using the conveyor belt, which can eliminate wheel loader and excavator needs, along with the required manpower.
Economic issues and problems regarding high visibility will be key issues for surface mining equipment market participants. Strong global outlook on coal, chromium, iron ore and diamond should provide attractive industry growth opportunities.
