Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100246 | Status : Ongoing



The global smart mining market size to grow exponentially, during 202-2030 forecast period. The technologies used in smart mining such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and automation offers a profitable, efficient, and safe results along with smart control over mining activities. Digital transformation is reality and mining are going through one of the most intense periods of change.

Technology is radically transforming mining for better productivity, safety, and sustainability. Mining companies across the world are adopting automation technology to modernize their operation in order to gain more control and real-time data. With global demand for an array of natural resources persistently increasing, mining companies must implement smart technology to unearth and distribute these commodities around the world. Smart mining plays a key role which involves a specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely process for the sustainable growth of the mining industry.

The global smart mining market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Mining has been done in North America since colonial time and in the 19th century with new discoveries of minerals causing a rise in number of mining activities. North America is a leading producer of coal, bauxite, iron, copper, and nickel used in the various industrial operation which dominates its economy by providing billions of dollars and millions of jobs throughout the continent. Mining accidents claimed thousands of death in the past century that intensify the companies to adopt smart mining for enhancing its operational capability.

The Asia Pacific is a significant producer of metal ore and metals. It holds the world’s largest coal reserves but distributed in different countries like Australia which is the second largest producer of gold, lead, lithium ore and manganese. Mining conglomerate Rio Tinto have some of the largest mining projects in the bucket. The implementation of automation and digitalization in mining have already upgraded smart mining and has an enormous potential for growth in the forthcoming year.

The mining in Europe has a long tradition and now it is self-sufficient to produce many industrial minerals. Europe is a net exporter to a wide variety of minerals and encouraging sustainable material value chain in terms of social acceptance, environmental soundness and economic viability which stimulate the growth of smart mining. MEA is the top producer of hydrocarbons along with many minerals found in this area such as zinc, nickel, copper, gold, lead, etc. The companies involved in mining activities are employing automation for better control and productivity which seems to be positive for smart mining growth.

Key Industry Developments

· In March 2019, ABB has launched a digital portfolio, AbilityTM MineOptimize, in a bid to optimize all stages in Indian mining sector.


· In August 2018, Australian based gold mining company, Resolute Mining, building a world’s first fully automatic underground mine to begin production in South Africa which includes driverless trucks, loaders and drills at the $US223 million.


· In July 2018, Hitachi Construction Machinery will provide autonomous haulage system (AHS) to Australia’s largest coal miner, Whitehaven Coal. AHS will empower safety, productivity and life cycle cost management with optimization at mining sites.
