This study of the Global Mining Automation Market provides detailed information about industry trends and dynamics, market size, competitive landscape, and growth opportunities. Global Mining Automation Market was valued at USD 2.31 Billion in 2019; it is expected to reach USD 4.03 Billion by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 8.6%. The scope of the global mining automation market study includes market size analysis and a detailed analysis of the manufacturer’s products and strategies. The market has been segmented based on offering, operation, and region.
The process of automation utilizes various devices such as control systems, computers, robots, technology sets, and programmable controllers to carry out industrial operations without human intervention. Mining automation is a part of industrial automation which involves the use of autonomous machines and process controls for reducing human labor in the mining process. Mining automation automates processes such as drilling, loading, hauling, and transporting among others. At the automation control level, devices such as PCs, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and distributed control systems (DCS) provide industrial process control. The use of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) or the supervision level includes the acquisition of data from various control devices which is displayed through human-machine interfaces (HMIs) that interact with field devices. The government authorities play a crucial role in the adoption of mining automation in various countries. Digitalization is increasing in the manufacturing sector to produce cost-effective and quality consumer products. Uncertain and volatile economic conditions have forced manufacturers to modernize and upgrade their production methods. The manufacturing sector forms the backbone of the economy of a country. Moreover, the safety of employees, visitors, vendors, and contractors remains a top priority for many organizations. Automation helps to reduce various injuries to workers from physical strain, repetitive motion, exposure to hazardous substances, overexertion, slipping, and other accidents.
Global Mining Automation Market has been segmented based on offering, operation and region.
By offering, the market has been segmented into hardware (autonomous mining truck, autonomous drilling rig, mining load-haul-dump (LHD), pumping stations, tunneling equipment, others), software (fleet management, workforce management, remote operations and monitoring, temperature monitoring system, others), communication system (navigation systems, wireless mesh networks, others)
By operation, the market has been segmented into mining process (autonomous haulage, autonomous drilling), maintenance (HVAC, mine dewatering), development (tunnel boring, access road construction, others)
By region, the mining automation market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America.
Globally, the mining automation market has been categorized into five regions—North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Among these regions, North America dominated the market in 2019 owing to the high demand for advanced manufacturing robotic technologies, favorable government policies to encourage factory automation and increased demand for intelligent and automated manufacturing systems. The US is the major contributor to mining automation in the North American region. The major factor that helps fuel the growth of the US market is the presence of key market players in the automation market. However, the lack of skilled workforce and limited awareness regarding the advantages of factory automation technologies and changes in laws and regulations is hampering the market growth. On the other hand, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to showcase the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
