Mining Automation Solutions to Witness High Demand Due to Growing Focus on Lowering Operational Costs: Fact.MR Report



Global mining automation market to benefit from increasing concerns regarding the safety of workers in mines, says Fact.MR in its latest industry report.

Rockville, Feb. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the global mining automation market is set to touch US$ 7.5 billion by 2033, expanding at 6.4% CAGR from 2023 to 2033.

Mining is the second-most significant and ancient human endeavor after agriculture. The two industries are considered the primary industries of early civilization. Mining is the primary source of mineral commodities, which all countries rely on to maintain and improve their standard of living. Mining automation is gaining prominence due to increasing awareness of the application of modern technology.

Mining automation refers to the utilization of control systems, such as computer technology and electronics, to assist machines in performing certain activities. It covers several types of equipment used in mining activities with high operational autonomy.

The main benefit of mining automation technology is cost reduction. Mining costs can be decreased by automating the procedure. It can also assist in minimizing the number of miners needed, which can help to lower mining costs. Mining automation solutions can also help boost productivity. Mining speed can be increased using automation. Moreover, the technology can aid in improving the quality of minerals

Traditionally, mining operations involved a lot of manual labor, which put people in a risky environment. A large number of human resources are needed to achieve increased productivity, which includes supplying safety equipment and high remuneration, which raises overall production costs. Many corporations are employing automation in their mining processes to prevent such significant costs and risks to personnel.
