Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Personal Protective Equipment Market for Mining Industry 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global personal protective equipment market for mining industry: 3M, Ansell, Honeywell International, and MSA.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AJ Charnaud & Co, Cordova Safety Products, Cestus, DuPont, Ergodyne, Moldex, MadGrip, NATIONAL SAFETY APPAREL, Protective Industrial Products, and Sensear.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is automation in mining industry. The mining industry is pushing the boundaries of automation with a gradual increase in the use of remote controlled equipment and robots. Companies that are expanding their operations with the use of automation in mining are focusing on efficient mineral extraction and better safety on commencing it.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is recovery of mining industry. Global mining production and its value in the industry are expected to improve gradually owing to the expected rise in metal prices in the forthcoming years. There are two major factors that will contribute to the rise of prices: impact of strong economic activity in China to increase global commodity prices, and impact of US infrastructure on metal prices. China's strong economic activity and demand for associated commodities are helping in rebounding broad-based commodity prices. Long-term outlook for metal prices is expected to remain stable, prompting the gradual value recovery of the mining industry.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is mechanization and increasing adoption of automation. Introduction and innovations of technologies such as autonomous haul loaders and trucks, tele-remote ship loaders, semi-autonomous rock breakers, crushers, and automated drilling in the mining industry will have an intense impact on labor force requirements at work stations. New technologies have discarded a lot of labors, leading mining companies toward low rates of lost time injuries. The mining industry is witnessing a significant number of new technologies in enhancing processes and performance.
