Mining is conducted in two ways underground and surface. Surface mines are large pits where dirt and rock are removed to expose the minerals. Surface mining is also known as opencast mining, which consists of three different techniques: strip mining, open-pit mining, and mountaintop blasting. These three processes are breaking up soil and rocks by explosives and then removing debris in that it uses Trucks and shovels to remove excess fragments and recovers a higher proportion of the coal deposits than underground mining.

As rising the urbanization and industrialization across the globe, the demand for power generation has been increased. This, in turn, has led to an increased demand for coal, which plays an important role in the energy production. Growing demand for coal, which is used for electricity generation purpose is expected to encouraging surface mining industry growth in the estimative period. Coal mining is expected to emerge as a high growing activity, and it involves the use of equipment such as scraper conveyors, road headers, and coal winning machines. Moreover, increasing population along with augmented economic activity has significantly boosted demand for coal for electricity generation and heating purposes.

An abundance of reserves of metallic and non-metallic minerals that can be exploited using surface mining and less capital requirement as compared to underground and marine mining acts as a major driving factor for the growth of surface mining market. Environmental mining activities may result in adverse environmental conditions including contamination and soil erosion, which may restrict market growth over the forecast period.

The surface mining equipment market is divided into types such as open-pit mining, strip mining, mountaintop removal, and high wall mining and dredging. Strip mining is the largest application market for surface mining equipment and is expected to witness sluggish growth in the future due to increasing limitation on coal mining activities and coal-based power plants. Whereas, Open-pit surface mining equipment is used for extracting minerals or rocks from the earth and expected to grow in the forecasted period. Whereas, stringent
environmental regulations and difficulties related to land acquisition can act as the restraint in the surface mining market.

The global market can be segmented on the basis of geography into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World. Among, the Asia Pacific is the largest regional market in the global surface mining market. The region is expected to maintain its leading position throughout the forecast period with rising demand from China and India. The Asia Pacific is expected to see the fastest growth for mining due to rising replacement of outdated machinery with advanced solutions. Latin America and Africa are also expected to observe considerable growth through the forecast period with growing mining sector.

Regional Analysis

The global market can be segmented on the basis of geography into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World. Countries like China, India, Indonesia, and others dominate the Asian mining sector. Flourishing mining activities in countries such as China and India are likely to show a potential growth opportunities to the surface mining market. Increasing demand for coal and chromium is estimated to provide intense growth.

An expanding role of governments and other agencies is focusing on environmental safety on a global platform. There are stringent fuel consumption, greenhouse effects, and labor safety regulations, which pushes miners, especially in developed countries, to replace traditional machinery to improve productivity due to government regulations. To meet new safety standards with high levels of efficiency, manufacturers prioritize new technology for surface mining. With growing mining activities in Latin America and demand for coal for power generation in emerging nations have led to the increased demand for surface mining by the mining companies.
