The publisher's 'Underground Mining Equipment Market Analysis by Type, Commodity and Region, and Forecasts, 2021-2025” provides detailed data and forecasts for underground mining trucks and underground loaders/LHDs. The data is based on the publisher's extensive mine-site research and equipment models to generate a complete view of equipment counts globally, with breakdowns by each major region and key mining country, and also by major commodity - including copper and gold.

The total number of underground mining trucks and loaders/LHDs in underground mines at the end of 2021, including both active and those in care and maintenance, was estimated at 21,422 of which 18,469 were at active mines.

Of these, there were 12,577 loaders/LHDs, including 10,821 at active mines, and 8,845 were underground mining trucks, including 7,648 at active mines.

With steady growth in output, as more mines ramp up and come on stream, the total number of vehicles at active mines is forecast to rise to 20,088 by 2025, a CAGR of 2.2%.

Highest growth in machine counts is expected in Oceania and Africa and the Middle East, supported by both new purchases from new mines entering production and replacements. These two regions are expected to be followed by South and Central America and North America.

The leading OEMs are Sandvik, Epiroc, Caterpillar, collectively estimated to account for 75% of underground mining trucks and 85% of underground loaders and LHDs.
