Mining Equipment Market: By Equipment Category
The mining equipment market can be segmented based on equipment Category into crushing, pulverizing & screening equipment, drills & breakers, mineral processing equipment, surface mining equipment, and underground mining equipment. The crushing, pulverizing and screening equipment segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The equipment is used to break down large stones, rocks and other materials into smaller pieces. In general crushing equipment is a part of material handling plants. There are different types of crushers and each of them serves their unique purpose such as jaw, cone, glass, split feed, stone, and gyratory crushers. The screening equipment finds its application in separation of materials from each other. These equipment are most important and essential equipment, hence they are readily used in the mining and exploration activities. However, underground equipment is anticipated to be the fastest growing mining equipment because of increased closed mining activity in search of precious metals and minerals.
Mining Equipment Market: By Industry
The mining equipment market can be classified on the basis of industry into metals, minerals, and coal. Metal mining industry is anticipated to witness a steady growth during the forecast period owing to increase in disposable income and improved standard of living which has fueled the demand for high priced metals such as silver, gold, platinum among others. Other metals such as zinc, lead, aluminum, nickel and copper are increasingly used in several industrial sectors such as chemical, construction, and energy and utility in order to perform manufacturing operations.
Mining Equipment Market: By Propulsion
The mining equipment market can be segmented on the basis of propulsion type into diesel, gasoline, and CNG/LNG/others. Diesel segment is expected to hold the largest market share in the forecasted period owing to better fuel economy and better acceleration over gasoline and others. However, CNG/LNG/others is anticipated to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to its unique properties such as the cleanest burning fuel, thereby emitting fewer greenhouse gas and tailpipe emission, reduced fuel cost, performance advantage under both hot or cold weather condition, safety advantage, and favorable government regulations among others.
