 U.S. Mining Equipment Market Size, by equipment type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The global outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis has made serious economic impacts across various industries, including the mining sector. The lower levels of economic activity due to the lockdown restrictions during the pandemic had significantly affected the demand for coal. In the coming years, the mining sector expected to transform into a climate-smart industry. As a result, the mining companies are now looking forward to adopt electrification rather than conventional fuels like diesel.

Crushed rock, cement, gold, construction, industrial sand, gravel, iron ore, copper, and many more commodities regularly mined in the U.S. Thus, rising demand for coal, gas, and oil sands, along with technological developments, expected to drive this industry in the U.S. Some of the key manufacturers in the U.S. are Caterpillar Inc., Metso Qutotec, Komatsu Ltd., Boart Long year Ltd, Sany Group, and Liebherr.

The mining industry requires a large amount of energy to extract and protect resources, including a variety of refining and concentration processes. The decrease in the average copper ore grade has led to an increase in energy consumption and total material production, thereby propelling the demand for high-performance mining equipment.

The incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) in mining equipment increases their efficiency, along with enhancing the productivity of mines and ensuring the safety of miners. Smart data and machine learning also adopted in the global mining industry across the world. The advancements in technology anticipated to propel the market demand throughout the forecast period.

Integration of automated technology in mining operations expected to boost the demand for innovative mining equipment for firms to remain competitive. The demand for these automated solutions and equipment expected to be higher in developed markets as the use of advanced technology requires highly skilled labor and strong network connectivity.

The underground mining equipment type segment accounted for 30.2% share of the global revenue in 2021. The sturdy manufacturing and high impact force of underground mining equipment make it an efficient piece of equipment for subterranean operations and therefore, fueling the demand for underground mining equipment during the forecast period.

The crushing, pulverizing & screening equipment type segment expected to register a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period. Owing to the rise in demand for fixed and wheeled product lines, manufacturers of processing equipment for crushing, pulverizing, and screening anticipate stronger sales. The demand and use of mobile crushing, pulverizing, and screening processing equipment also anticipated to increase, contributing to the expansion of the global market.

The drills & breakers systems equipment type segment accounted for 6.9% share of the global revenue in 2021. The mining drills & breakers are anticipated to rise during the forecast period owing to the global expansion of mining activities coupled with technological advancements such as IoT, automation, infrared, optical micro cameras, and artificial intelligence.

Application Insights

The coal mining application led the market and accounted for 38.0% share of the global revenue in2021.The mining equipment expected to witness significant growth in coal mining applications. The growth attributed to its increased demand in electricity generation. Coal mining equipment has expanded its purposes and adoption as the excavation of coal has boomed.

The metal mining application segment is likely to expand at a CAGR of 6.0% throughout the forecast period. Owing to increased resource exploration and strong demand for precious metals such as silver, gold, copper, and iron, the metal mining market expected to grow as a significant application segment.

 Global Mining Equipment Market share, by application, 2021 (%)

Owing to constantly improving technology, mining for rare earth metals has recently gained traction. The current high levels of investment in new technology recommend that for large metal mining operations there is a focus on long-term value. In addition, newer methods of exploitation will emerge to maximize production in a cost-effective way.

Non-metal application accounted for 31.0% share of the global revenue share in 2021. Underground mining equipment used to excavate hard minerals usually those containing metals such as ore containing gold, silver, copper, zinc, and nickel. For instance, the 3D geological model shows the size and shape of the mineral deposits, making it easier to devise mining and exploration strategies.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific led the market and accounted for 34.7% share of the global revenue in 2021. The increasing shift towards clean energy resources and the adoption of electric vehicles in developing countries such as China and India expected to drive market growth in the coming years.

North America region is likely to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. Rising mineral mining activity, increased use of cutting-edge mining equipment, and government initiatives in North America are the major drivers boosting the market growth. In addition, the shift from traditional underground mining to cutting-edge, cost-effective open-pit mining anticipated to drive the demand for these products during the forecast period.

Mining Equipment Market Trends by Region

Europe is likely to develop at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. The manufacturers growing emphasis on carrying out underground mining activities, reducing carbon emissions, and increasing worker safety in Europe has resulted in a rise in demand for the electrification of underground mining equipment.

The Central & South America accounted for 8.5% share of the global revenue in 2021.
