Underground mining equipment refer to highly specialized machineries used in the mining sector. Underground automation is the prevalent trend observed in the mining sectors currently. The automation of these equipment has brought up the ability to increase the productivity, lengthen out maintenance times, increased safety and reduced diesel emissions, and to carry out all of those things, it has upskilled the local workforce. Naturally, the underground mining equipment market is witnessing its heydays growing pervasively on the global platform.
Evaluating the potential of this market to surge in the years to come, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global underground mining equipment market will experience the accretion of USD 30,406.6 Mn. by 2023 registering a CAGR of 7.13% throughout the forecast period (2020-2027).

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is striving to improve safety technology for mobile equipment and belt conveyors used in the underground mining sector. And, to reduce accidents involving powered haulage which includes haul trucks, front-end loaders and other large vehicles as well as belt conveyors, the agency has undertaken a larger initiative -Request for Information (RFI).
Additionally, MSHA will provide technical assistance, develop best practices and training materials to raise awareness of hazards related to mobile equipment and belt conveyors by soliciting data from stakeholders on technology and practices that can improve safety conditions for miners. Such initiatives undertaken by the public and private agencies is providing impetus to the market growth, increasing automation of these equipment.
The market growth is predominantly driven by rising demand for demand of coal from energy sector, growing demand of metal by manufacturing industries and supportive government policies. Additional factors providing impetus to the market growth such as rising population, along with the increasing urbanization and industrialization, define the growing demand for the energy.
Increasing demand for coal is expected to result in a rise in demand for the underground mining equipment market. Changed supply and demand dynamics is expected increase in the number of mines leading to boost the market growth.
On the other hand, factors such as stringent regulations pertaining to the mining and the shortage of skilled and technologically competent labor force are some of the factors impeding the growth to an extent.

Whereas, in North American region, a number of ongoing mining activities especially in the US coupled with the augmented demand for the conventional and non-conventional mining are supporting the market growth in the region.
Some of the prominent players profiled in MRFR Analysis and are at the forefront of competition in the market include Caterpillar Inc., Komatsu Ltd., Sandvik AB, Thyssenkrupp AG, Volvo AB, Liebherr – International Deutschland GmBh, Metso Corporation, Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd., FLSmidth Group, Boart Longyear Ltd., and Kennametal, Inc.
July 24, 2018 – Caterpillar Inc. (US), one of the leading global mining equipment manufacturers announced its partnership with Newmont Mining Corporation (US), a gold producer to develop and improve technology used in underground hard rock mining vehicle automation.
The collaboration is expected to support Caterpillar and Newmont to make further improvements in terms of underground vehicle automation, including improvement of existing technology and deployment of new features.
In addition to the safety and security of machine operators, the agreement provides the platform for new or improved capabilities to be jointly and quickly scoped, piloted, proven and adopted into operations. Besides the collaboration agreement also covers information sharing for assistance in strategic and tactical decision-making with respect to automation.
Additionally, the partnership is expected to pave way for rapid replication across its operations by leveraging Caterpillar’s global business model and dealer network. Also, the deployment of Command for underground operating model at other mines will create more value.
