Mining Drill Bits Market to Reach USD 2.25 Billion by 2029; Sandvik AB Introduced New Range of Top-Hammer Drill Bits to Gain Revenue Benefit

November 15, 2022 | Energy & Power

The global mining drill bits market size was USD 1.63 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow from USD 1.74 billion in 2022 to USD 2.25 billion by 2029, with a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022-2029.

This information is presented by Fortune Business Insights, in its report, titled, “Mining Drill Bits Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Rotary Bit, DTH Hammer Bit, Others), By Material (PDC Diamond, Tungsten Carbide, Steel, Others), By Size (Below 8’’, 8’’-11”, Above 11”), By Application (Surface Mining, Underground Mining), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029.”

Mining Production and Exploration Delays Affected Market Development

All industries have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic. Due to severe regulations needed to stop the virus's spread, including national closures, trade has suffered significantly. Following the viral outbreak, the demand for mining drill bits changed. Due to the market's primary dependence on the mining sector, the increasing failure that the mining sector is currently experiencing has had an effect on investment in mining exploration and production activities. As a result, there is less demand for drilling operations and less need for mining equipment, particularly drill bits.

With the Warrior Product Line, Terelion Expands into the Down-the-Hole Drilling Market

The Down-the-Hole (DTH) market will be expanded by Terelion, a producer of rotary drill bits for the mining sector, with the launch of its newest product at MINExpo 2021 in Las Vegas.

Terelion now offers the Warrior product line of DTH hammers and bits in diameters ranging from 4-8 in (102-203 mm), in addition to the currently available selection of rotary bits.

The ability to drill quickly with little hole deviation in hard and fissured rock has made DTH a popular choice for drilling up to 10 production blast holes in quarries and surface mines. Additionally, in big surface mining operations where production drilling is done, it is utilized to drill pre-split and buffer holes.

Increasing Requirement for Commodities to Enhance Demand for Mining Equipment

The need for raw materials has expanded due to the expanding industrial landscape, which is fueled by the population explosion, energy needs brought on by automation, and digitalization. The demand for commodities that are heavily dependent on mining, such as oil, gas, metals, agricultural fertilizers, and so on, has expanded as a result of rising urbanization and industrialization.

The construction sector is currently expanding significantly on a global scale, particularly in China, the U.S., and India.
