Smart Mining Market by Type (Underground Mining and Surface Mining) and Category (Automated Equipment and Component): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027

The global smart mining market size is expected to reach $23,465.8 million in 2027, from $9,265.7 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 16.3% from 2020 to 2027. Smart mining is a process of extracting minerals, resources, and metals utilizing a varied range of technology and planning solutions. It contains IT planning and logistics, detection of poisonous gases, extraction, and remote communication.
In addition, it offers varied benefits such as increased production efficiency, high protection of workers, increased productivity, and reduction of risks & production costs. Smart mining has witnessed unprecedented adoption in recent years, due to increase in concerns pertaining to rise in pollution and environment protection. In addition, there is an increase in the adoption of smart mining due to rise in awareness regarding health hazards, owing to air pollution and land pollution.
Increasing penetration of advanced technologies in mining automation such as internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and machine learning, are anticipated to cut down substantial costs of the workforce, and thereby, result in significant cost optimization. IoT solutions offer opportunities in the complex mining industry to track visibility, safety, and efficiency. It connects the workforce, machines, and products in addition to services. Mining companies have deployed advanced digital technologies at mine sites to monitor safety controls; thereby, fostering the mining efficiencies. These factors drive the growth of the smart mining market significantly.
In addition, the safety & health concerns of miners and operators, due to harsh mining atmospheres drive the demand for autonomous equipment in the mining industry. The implementation of IoT and AI in the mining industry has resulted in a low fatality rate. Further, the adoption of digital technologies such as logistics software, remote-controlled equipment, and high-precision GPS drives productivity. Major companies such as Caterpillar, Cisco, and Siemens, have established software & solutions that meet safety standards of the National Mining Association and Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). These factors drive the growth of the smart mining industry globally. However, the scarcity of skilled and qualified labor and mining graduates for operating the smart mining equipment and software restrains the market growth.
On the contrary, rise in application of environmental laws concerning the mining industry is anticipated to create opportunities for the implementation of smart mining technologies in the mining industry. The integration of smart mining technologies helps in maintaining the atmospheric conditions on mining site as well as improve the mineral extraction productivities; thereby, maintaining the environmental sustainability.
