Asian Maintenance and Aftermarket Preferences Mining Industry 2015 Report by Market Research Store


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2015 -- Synopsis

Between September and October 2014, Timetric surveyed 115 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers in over 100 operating Asian mines. The survey primarily assessed the maintenance and equipment support preferences provided by original equipment manufacturers and independent third-party companies.

Areas of analysis include:

- Customer preferences for choosing maintenance and aftermarket support structure. These include opting for either original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or independent third-party providers.

- Analysis of respondents who use OEMs or third-party providers in respect to three equipment parts categories: strategic parts, non-strategic parts and for all processing related equipment. These responses are analysed between regions, commodity, company size and mine type.

- After-sales equipment support is divided between four types – work with me, do it for me, do it myself and other – with each category showing a varied approach by equipment manufacturers in the support they provide to end users of their products. These responses are also divided by commodity, mine type, company size and by region.

- Respondents were asked to rate their equipment providers over a range of different areas. Each category was given a rating of importance by the respondents, then the categories were also rated in terms of the provider's performance. The report looks at two important areas – service and repair capabilities, and maintenance and service costs – with respondent ratings of importance directly compared with their ratings for provider performance.

- Three types of service contract we then outlined: maintenance only, operation and maintenance, and lifecycle management. Preferences for the support structure offered by their equipment provider are divided into mine type, company size, and region.


Overall trends in the data revealed:

- OEMs have a share of 87% for strategic parts requirements, with 66% purely OEMs and 21% share a mix of OEMs and third-party parts. There is a similar proportion for processing equipment requirements. OEMs have a 71% share for non-strategic parts, with 46% purely OEMs and 25% being a mix of OEMs and third parties.

- More than 50% of underground mining operations use independent, third parties either solely or in conjunction with OEMs. In comparison, between 28% - 50% of surface mines use third-party companies in the same way.

- The most preferred service contracts are split between operation and maintenance, and maintenance only, with both returning 38% of the responses. Lifecycle management comes in least preferred with 19%.

Reasons To Buy

- Understand how mining companies use original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for equipment, parts and processing equipment needs, and how these preferences vary by commodity, company size and region.

- Gain knowledge of mining companies' preferences for after-sales support structure, and identify the services required based on mine type, company size and commodity.

- Understanding the importance that mining companies place on service and maintenance costs and capabilities, and the local or on-site repair capabilities of their OEM. Results are then compared with the actual rated performance of these equipment manufacturers.

- Identify the service contract preferences of mines in Asia, and the differences when compared across mine type, region (India, Indonesia and the Philippines) and company size.

Key Highlights

- OEMs are used in some way over 70% of the time in the Asian mining industry.

- When comparing mine types and OEM use, between 50% and 68% of underground mining respondents would use third-party providers for parts and equipment. There is a stronger focus on original parts to use OEMs. In comparison, 50% of surface mining operations utilize third-party providers in some form.

- Instead of an involving after-sales contract, with lifecycle management being the most preferred, the majority of respondents opted for the operation and maintenance, or maintenance only support structure. Lifecycle management is the least preferred.
