May 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Digital Mining Market Growth & Trends

The global digital mining market size is anticipated to reach USD 18.11 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.8% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising adoption of automation platforms in mining exploration activities is projected to remain a key factor driving the market growth. The mining sector is witnessing a prominent growth owing to increased penetration of digitization for activities including mineral exploration to downstream sales. Moreover, it assists in safety and health and reduces the environmental impact in the sector. Automation and robotics in this sector are likely to offer numerous opportunities owing to the growing replacement of human-controlled machinery with digital hardware-enabled tools.

Komatsu is a leading mining and construction equipment provider and is also known for the development of new and innovative mining platforms. In February 2023, Komatsu partnered with Cummins for optimization of mine maintenance. The companies have developed integrated remote equipment monitoring solutions, which will help improve maintenance execution, reduce unplanned stoppages, and extend component life. The non-ferrous metals segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 10.1% from 2024 to 2030. Global demand for rechargeable batteries and electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to drive the growth of the non-ferrous mining sector.

In addition, this sector is witnessing increased spending on digital solutions. For instance, Hindustan Zinc, a leading player in the zinc industry, collaborated with Sandvik to boost its productivity through digitization of operations and activities. Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and digital twins are some of the key technologies that are projected to attract new investments in the market. Recently, MineHub Technologies launched a new IBM blockchain-based platform to improve logistics and operational efficiency and reduce costs in the high-value mineral supply chain.
