How can companies capitalize on technology investments in Mining?

GlobalData’s mine-site technology surveys investigate the degree to which mines across the globe have invested in a range of technologies, spanning mine management software, predictive maintenance, drones, autonomous vehicles, collision avoidance, wearables, remote control vehicles and more. In this report, we compare the overall investment trends by technology as well as by region and key country, by type of miner – major or non-major – and by mine type. We also compare results from the most recent survey, conducted between December 2021 and February 2022, with previous surveys. Have a look at our report and gain insights into:
  • Which technologies have been most widely invested in and implemented
  • Which mines have the highest penetration of technologies
  • Which technologies have seen an increase in the level of investment over the last two years
  • Comparison between surface and underground mines, in terms of level of investment in technology
