Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automated Mine Scanning Machines Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automated mine scanning machines market 2017-2021: 3D-Laser Mapping, Airware, Clearpath Robotics, Clickmox, SuperDroid Robots

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3D Robotics, AIRBORNE ROBOTICS, PrecisionHawk, Skylark Drones, TRANSCEND

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is 3D-laser scanning of mines using robots. The introduction of robots and automation in the mining industry has eased down complicated operations. Mine scanning is a critical operation that requires high precision and accurate data transmission for the quality of surveying and exploration. Involvement of manual labor is expensive when compared with laser scanners. Laser detection and scanning technique can inspect the wide spectrum of the field without getting exhausted. This prevents the downtime of operation that is caused due to manual operations. Also, the data transmission is real-time and accurate. The automated mine scanning machines are equipped with a vision system and sensors along with 3D-laser scanning, providing data from beneath the land surface, such as availability of rocks and minerals, temperature, and vibrations, which allow the manual labor and operator to suspect any unforeseen criticality during the operation.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is better accessibility to underground mining data. Automated mine scanning machines are equipped with a vision system and advanced sensor fusion technology. This advancement in technology makes the machines efficient to be incorporated in the underground mining operation. With the integration of Internet-of-Things, cloud computing, and big data, these machines are implemented beneath the land surface to capture the data precisely. The accessibility of data transmission and communication between operators and mining labors is not possible through manual operations. However, with the implementation of advanced automation and machines, data capture and transmission have improved. The accessibility of machines has improved with the continuous exchange of data between machines and the operator. Underground mining data can be captured with fewer complications and high precision through the implementation of automated mine scanning machines.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is frequent maintenance and downtime. Automated machines have complicated structure due to the number of advanced components incorporated in machines. These machines are used for exhaustive operations that engage these machines continuously for hours. Due to continuous operations, machines may encounter breakdown that will result in downtime of operations. To minimize the downtime and frequent maintenance cost involvement, the mining and minerals industry operator resists in implementing automation and robotics. Frequent maintenance and downtime also increase the overall expense incurred by the business, which is a major focus area that needs to be curtailed in mining operations.
