Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101348 | Status : Ongoing



Mining is the second most important and ancient endeavour of humankind after agriculture. The two industries are ranked as the primary industries of early civilization. Mining is the foremost source of mineral commodities that all countries find it essential for maintaining and improving their standard of living. In a recent period, automated mining is gaining importance due to better awareness of the application of advanced technology.

Previously mining activities involve a lot of manual work that poses a risk to personnel who are working in a dangerous environment. A lot of human resources required for achieving higher productivity, which involves providing safety equipment’s and high remuneration that increases overall production cost. To avoid such high cost and risk to personnel, many companies are implementing automation in their mining process.

Automation has been identified as the most likely means to attain the next quantum jump in productivity and safety since sensing, control, and computing technology is advancing rapidly. It not only minimizes the overall production cost of the mining but also enhances the mining efficiency.

Mining automation uses several advanced technologies such as satellite communication, internet of things (IoT), automated trucks & load haul dump, etc. Therefore, mining automation is essential for offering a safe environment to personnel and increases productivity.

Mining automation market is segmented based on type and component. Type is further bifurcated into underground mining automation and surface mining automation. Automation eliminates unnecessary manpower by implying automated equipment such as load haul dump, automated drilling guns, excavators, etc. The valuable metals such as gold, silver, diamond, copper, zinc, etc. are recovered from underground mines.

It is necessary to implement automation for a risk-free and effective mining operation. Underground mining is expected to spend a large chunk of amount for automation. The component is further classified into equipment, software, and communication system.

The equipment segment is forecasted to see significant growth in the upcoming years as companies; many companies are investing for automated equipment’s. Software and communication technology is playing an essential role in offering digitalization and cloud computing services.

Working in underground mining is quite difficult owing to potential risks such as lack of proper ventilation, exposure to toxic gases, and adverse health effect. Meanwhile, by implementing automated mining, all severe such threat can be omitted which attributing the growth of the mining automation market. It reduced the overall labor cost and increased the efficiency of the plant that drives the mining automation market.

Automation involves implementation of superior technology, which requires high initial investment and unavailability of the skilled labor force is expected to restrain the growth of the mining automation market.
