Top 5 Mining Equipment Manufacturers Across the Globe

Jan 21, 2018

Working in the mining industry can be a dangerous and challenging task due to extreme working conditions and multiple emergency situations. Extracting resources from the Earth is a laborious task and requires heavy mining equipment that can perform the toughest of tasks. There are various categories and types of mining equipment including dozers, loaders, trucks, drillers, crushers, dryers, feeders, conveyor belts, hydraulic pumps, and compressors. Each kind of mining equipment is used in its own set of mining activity and differs in the function they perform. Although the mining industry has been functioning all the same since its inception, the recent incorporation of digital technologies has substantially enhanced the productivity of the mining equipment. The procurement market intelligence report form SpendEdge also indicates that the category spend will be driven by rising mining activities in the APAC region.
