Increase in mining activities

Numerous industries globally are dependent on the supply of mineral resources from underground. The mining sector is pivotal to the world’s economy. The mining sector extracting bauxite, iron ore, copper, coal, diamonds, tin, or rare earth metals is anticipated to grow significantly over the next few decades and is at the core of national economic development growth forecasts.

The sector is also projected to see significant changes during the upcoming decades. The importance of the mining activities in developing countries shows a considerable contribution to economic development of the nation and create revenues for governments across the globe. Mining corporations can generate employment, economic growth, and profits, in low-income countries followed by partnerships with the government and civil society, they can safeguard the profits of mining; thus, creating a positive impact on the natural environment, climate change, and social capital of the country.

The World Bank has supported several mining sector reform projects in various countries since 1988. The reforms have contributed to an increase in investment in the mining sector and related economic indicators such as exports, fiscal revenues and gross domestic product (GDP) in recipient countries. The World Bank’s mining sector promotes policies and programs that strengthen governance and environmental performance and stimulate linkages to the rest of the economy to ensure that the benefits are widespread and sustained. Such factors and policies drive the market toward a positive growth during the forecast period.

Increase in demand of raw materials

There is high demand for raw material that are obtained through mining activities such as bauxite, iron ore, copper, coal, diamonds, tin, or rare Earth metals. The world is shifting toward transition to electric vehicles, the demand for vehicle batteries has increased drastically in main automotive markets across Europe and the U.S. Automotive and battery manufacturers across the world faces a challenging period of uncertainty in the battery supply chain, and many are turning to building their own lithium mine, battery gigafactories or forming joint ventures to address squeezed supply. For instance, in October 2022, a lithium mine with the capacity to supply 700,000 electric car batteries per year is set to open in France. The massive mining project launched by French minerals company, Imerys will operate on the site of the Beauvoir kaolin quarry in Central France. The site contains one million tons of lithium.

According to McKinsey, continued growth of Li-ion batteries over the next decade at an annual compound rate of approximately 30%. By 2030, electric vehicles (EVs), along with energy-storage systems, e-bikes, electrification of tools, and other battery-intensive applications, could account for 4,000 to 4,500 GWh of Li-ion demand. The battery value chain is expected to increase by as much as ten times between 2020 and 2030 to reach annual revenue as high as $410 billion. The world will need more critical minerals and raw materials to power the global economy of the future and these resources will need to be mined sustainably. The increase in the requirement of raw material around the world will further boost the demand in the electric drive mining truck market.

High manufacturing cost

High manufacturing cost of electric drive mining trucks has been one of the major concerns over their adoption. The manufacturing cost of electric drive mining trucks is generally much more compared to ICE counterparts. This is generally owing to high price of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used in these vehicles. The production of electric drive mining trucks also cost more as compared to ICE mining trucks due to costly procedure involved in development of these vehicles. The cost of development of greater range of electric drive mining trucks is much more owing to their advanced specifications of batteries, greater technology used for construction and more costly parts used in these trucks. Therefore, the cost of sales of these mining trucks is much higher than convention ICE mining trucks. These factors will further hamper the demand for electric drive mining truck market.

Shift of manufacturing industries toward clean and efficient electric vehicles

Electrification of trucks is going to be one of the biggest technology shifts in the mining industry. For many years, mining industry relied on diesel-powered mining truck, which causes environmental and health issues. Diesel-powered mining trucks tend to generate pollutants, heat and also create noise from internal combustion engines. Electric drive mining trucks do not emit much pollutants and they generate less heat as compared to diesel powered mining trucks.

Moreover, they are silent in operation, which proves to be beneficial in terms of health as they do not create noise pollution. Requirement to deliver environment-friendly operation in response for a sustainable future is on the surge. There is a constant shift to renewable energy, which has improved the demand for a variety of minerals. This situation has enabled companies to strengthen their business to offer electric drive mining truck, which are more productive and have a smaller environmental impact and further help in market growth.
