Mining is an extraction process of obtaining coal, minerals, metals and other such materials from the earth. Mining is an important sector of the world economy, which generates employment and provides innumerable resources to other industries. Petroleum, coal, natural gas, and water are the main products extracted during mining, in addition to various substances comprising uranium, diamond, stone, rock, various chemicals, and geologically deposited substances.
The world mining equipment is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% during 2016 â 2022, to reach over $150 billion by 2022. Major factors that boost the demand of mining equipment are rising demand for metal and mineral commodities and increasing consumption of natural resources, such as coal, diamond, and uranium. Moreover, increasing need for mineral fertilizers to improve agricultural yield supplements the global mining equipment market. Major challenges for the players operating in the market are increasing cost of raw materials and strict government regulations. However, the rising demand for technologically advanced mining equipment, increasing usage of coal for heating and electricity generation and increasing construction of roads and railway tracks through hilly areas present various opportunities for the market growth.
