Published:  Aug 2021 Report Code: KSI061610911 Pages: 114

The connected mining market is projected to witness a CAGR of 15.76% during the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$15.592 billion by 2026, increasing from US$5.597 billion in 2019.

Connected mining encompasses variously integrated and, associated mining solutions whereby people, processes, big data, types of equipment, and environment play in the digital transformation of the mining industry. The main players in the connected mining market include different types of companies, ranging from specialized independent technology suppliers of varying sizes up to the leading mining equipment manufacturers. As the industry envisions improving efficiency and worker safety, several technology trends have emerged. Building necessary communications for working the mines with applications and systems such as sensors and surveillance systems will transform the overall performance. A World Bank Release of 2020 has projected that the production of minerals, such as graphite, lithium, and cobalt, could increase by nearly 500% by 2050, to meet the growing demand for clean energy technologies. This arises a need for an integrated mining market equipped with digital transformation.

Growth Factors.

  • Digital transformation.

Increasing Information and Communication Technology (ICT), incorporation of integrated systems are some of the pivotal growth factors. Operators are adopting these technologies and are harnessing the benefits of eliminating errors and hazards before on-site implementation while enabling the ultimate predictive maintenance to minimize downtime of any equipment.

  • Occupational health and safety.

Usage of sensors such as radio frequency to detect combustible gas levels, airflow velocity, and temperature variations for checking if the environments are safe to work enhances the safety and security of the workers. The data can then be combined with data from environmental sensors to identify exposure to a potentially hazardous condition. The key to extending the range and applications of environmental monitoring solutions is the new sensors and technology which are compatible with the wireless solutions. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the Connected Mining Market

In the global context, COVID-19 is causing major disruptions to the mining industry across the world. Moreover, the developing countries that rely on minerals are missing out on essential fiscal revenues. Difficulties in obtaining financing and, consequently, delays in the implementation of new projects can be expected. Political instability, financial risk have also weakened the market. Moreover, the deficient of specialized workers as many remained stranded due to the restrictions led to a fall in the mining activities. Company operations have also been affected through isolated outbreaks and government-mandated shutdowns in several regions. One silver lining for the connected mining market amidst the pandemic is the innovations on how to improve collaborations remotely, accelerate the adoption of automation and digital capabilities. These transformations, in the long run, may open up fresh roadways.
