Need for optimizing production costs, reducing human intervention, and changing the mining landscape are key growth-driving factors for the market. Increasing investment in digital technologies, including analytics and human-machine interactions, is also expected to be one of the key factors boosting industry growth. Furthermore, complex stages involved in supply chain activities and growing sophistication in mining operations are driving the need for automation and robotics technology in this sector.

Growing automation has led to adoption of drones as a step toward the evolution of unmanned and aerial data collection technology in mines. Automated drone systems are expected to become an essential technology in future mining automation and digitization activities.

Several companies such as Tata Steel, Rio Tinto Group, and Komatsu Ltd. are the early adopters of drone technology. Usage of these systems enables quick data collection by enhancing accuracy in designing mine plans and making necessary changes, thereby boosting operational productivity.

Changing mining landscape across the globe along with dependence on specific technologies is expected to create growth opportunities over the next few years. Such changes in operations are challenging the viability of traditional exploration and drilling technologies and processes, thereby providing opportunities for the adoption of new technologies.

Rising need for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in mineral exploration activities has boosted market growth. GIS enables professionals to perform in-depth analysis of insights related to mineral exploration, mining conditions, and geochemical or hydrological data.

Several economies including India, Africa, and Brazil lack the potential for growth owing to use of conventional exploration techniques and equipment. Increased need for exploration in these economies with the adoption of advanced technologies is expected to accelerate demand for automated solutions over the forecast period.

Rising investments and government support, along with ongoing initiatives such as Digital Transformation Initiative (DFT) for a digital transition in the mining sector, would significantly boost the adoption of automated solutions. For instance, in 2017, the Government of Australia announced its plans to invest approximately USD 79 million to encourage medium- and small-sized miners to carry out exploration activities.
