Dig deeper with our mining equipment forecasts

As ore mines ramp up and come on stream, the total number of active surface machines (including trucks, excavators, shovels, loaders, graders and dozers) is forecast to rise from 141,470 in 2020 to 167,367 by 2025. This will be a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2025. The largest contributor to this growth is expected to be trucks, particularly smaller-sized trucks with shorter lifespans, used extensively in parts of Asia Pacific. Underground mining equipment is similarly expected to see a CAGR of 2.3% in this same time frame, with the number of mining trucks and loaders/LHDs in active underground mines expected to rise to 19,853 by 2025. GlobalData’s extensive mine-site research and equipment models have been used to build a complete view of mobile mining equipment populations globally for trucks, loaders, graders, dozers, excavators and shovels. This report includes informative breakdowns by each major region and key mining country, and also by major commodity.

Under the agreement, Komatsu will deliver a total of 55 units of 960E-2 and 930E-4SE super-large dump trucks starting in the second half of 2016.

Adani Mining is part of the Indian company Adani Group.

"The Carmichael coal mine is expected to produce 60 million tonnes of coal annually."

The proposed Carmichael proposed thermal coal mine project is part of the Indian group’s large project to implement the fully autonomous mining operation consisting of mine, railway, and port.

Komatsu said that the mine will generate 10,000 jobs and A$22bn ($16bn) in taxes and royalties over the half-life of the projects.

The Carmichael coal mine is expected to produce 60 million tonnes of coal annually, through open-cut and underground mining methods.

The mine is expected to have an operating life of around 90 years and it is planned to extract four billion tonnes of coal in total.

Adani plans to build a new rail line at the mine, which will connect with the existing Goonyella railway line.
