Coal Mine Segment Expected to Hold Major Share of Global Market

  • The global electric rope shovel market can be segmented based on type, application, and region
  • In terms of type, the global electric rope shovel market can be divided into less than 20MT, 20MT-50MT, 50MT-100MT, and more than 100MT. 20MT rope shovel is an extensively used electric rope shovel due to continuous development and innovation in product design to improve efficiency and operation.
  • Based on application, the global electric rope shovel market can be classified into coal mines, copper mines, and others. The coal mining segment is estimated to expand significantly due to an increase in the demand for coal from power plants for electricity generation along with a rise in the demand for energy. Ease of availability and low cost are key parameters boosting its adoption in the power generation industry.

Asia Pacific Expected to Hold a Major Share of Global Electric Rope Shovel Market

  • In terms of region, the global electric rope shovel market can be divided into: Middle East & Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America
  • The electric rope shovel market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period due to ongoing investments in the coal mining sector to cater to the demand for fossil fuel from residential, commercial, and industrial establishments, primarily in developing nations such as India and China. Rapid urbanization & industrialization, increase in purchasing power, and rise in standard of living are key parameters, augmenting the demand for coal across the region. Moreover, addition of new coal mining capacity is also anticipated to propel the market. For instance, as per the Energy Bureau, China added 194 million tons to its total coal mining capacity in 2018.
  • The electric rope shovel market in North America is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. This expansion can be attributed to a rise in capital expenditure in oil sands mining, primarily in Canada.
  • The electric rope shovel market in Europe is also projected to expand during the forecast period due to an increase in investments in the research and development sector to enhance operational efficiency of the power shovel.
  •  The electric rope shovel market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Abundant availability of iron ore reserves, primarily in Brazil, is anticipated to fuel the market in the region.
