The overall adoption of cloud-based solutions is growing at a good pace, and the trend is expected to increase during the forecast period. Cloud platforms are new emerging development to track the health of assets.

The Exploration segment to record the highest market share during the forecast period

By Application, exploration segment is expected to hold a larger market share during the forecast period. Exploration in the mining industry is a series of activities used to analyze or identify the availability of minerals and metals such as coal, ore, diamond, oil, and gas, under the ground. This process involves mapping, surveying the ground, testing water and soil quality, and drilling. Today, the exploration process in the mining industry is rapidly adopting technological, automotive, and digitalized solutions. Modern explorational techniques are greatly driven by technological solutions and various companies and government bodies are heavily investing in exploration technologies. From 1950’s to 1980’s, exploration in mining has shown a rapid growth and remarkable success. The exploration industry observed few challenges in the last few years and their expenditure has also been increased due to some reasons such as new mines needed to locate at a high depth, minerals are available in location with large geoscience complexities, and others. With the increasing cost of exploration at high-risk organizations are becoming cautious and more dependent on geographic information. However, various technologies such as IoT, big data, and analytics, have adopted by miners to access reliable information of mine sites. Wipro helped Vedanta by providing real-time visibility in 890 production parameters and 708 quality parameters of its refinery unit.

Asia Pacific is expected to have a higher growth rate during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest market size in the global Connected Mining Market during the forecast period. In Asia Pacific, China, India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea (PNG), and the Philippines are expected to drive the market with China as the most potential player in smart mining initiatives. India can be considered to be the next high potential preference for the major global connected mining market vendors as the country has an increasing demand for minerals. New investments will drive the Indian market, following the country’s ambitious target of adding USD 210 billion from the mining and mineral sectors to the country’s GDP by 2050. The increase in production capacities in the region is driven by investment programs. This region is witnessing a high rate of adoption of technologies, such as operational analytics and data processing, remote monitoring, and mine safety systems.
