The global mining industry currently sits at a transition point. After enduring multiple years of low commodity prices, the industry has had to turn substantially toward cost reductions and increases in efficiency to stay afloat and remain profitable. As a result, the industry is strongly interested in technologies, systems and other solutions that increase the efficiency and efficacy of mining operations while reducing costs. An upturn in commodity prices in 2017 and 2018 released some of this pressure. Mining managers are now able to play catch-up and replace aging equipment, satisfying pent-up demand for this equipment caused by limited capital availability in recent years. Mining companies continue to seek new means to reduce costs and bolster profitability in the face of uncertain commodity price futures.

The upturn in commodity markets that began in 2017 and continued into early 2018 is finally unlocking mining equipment replacements across the industry. This uptick in capital availability corresponds to the availability of a suite of new technologies that enable increased productivity, significant labor cost reductions, enhanced safety, and improved performance. Mining automation technologies and equipment directly support these benefits to the industry. Estimates abound regarding the level of labor cost savings that could be achieved in the industry. Mining automation can also remove significant safety concerns. Operators can now run mining equipment from the safety of an on-site or even a
remote office building and control room rather than in hazardous underground mines. These operators can often operate two or more pieces of equipment simultaneously, further reducing labor costs. Fully automated systems ultimately promise to drive even further gains in efficiency and eliminate worker safety concerns for equipment operators.

The summary table and figure provide an overview of market values in the global automated mining technology industry for 2017 and 2018 and then projected through 2023. The market is already experiencing significant growth, and it is poised for exceptionally strong growth within the study period. Mining automation technologies are rapidly pressing into the overall mining equipment market. Automated mining equipment still represents only a small fraction of this overall market, but it is uniquely poised for rapid growth as automated technologies and systems penetrate into and ultimately overtake the overall mining equipment market.
