Mining Drilling Services Market Outlook - 2030

The mining drilling services market was valued at $2.5 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $4.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2020 to 2030. Drilling services include drilling work carried out on contract basis for numerous mining customer bases, operating across the wide ranges of commodities such as coal, metals, and others. Various types of drilling services are surface drilling, underground coring, and others. Furthermore, the drilling services’ agreements are typically carried out through a tender process. Drilling service providers quote an extensive costing process that guarantees that the projects are well planned and taken into consideration the geography, geology, time-frame, and others.

Drilling is a significant component of the mining industry and used for various purposes such as body characterization, surface & underground blast hole drilling, underground roof bolting & cabling, dewatering, and others. There are numerous advancements in the drilling technology such as development of global positioning system (GPS), wireless communications, sensors, and others. While there are numerous things at development stage such as automated drill rigs and battery-operated drill rigs. An automated drilling rig provides the mining industry a rapid solution for excavation operation. 


Furthermore, battery-operated drill rigs have potential of drilling blast patterns in short period of time as well as accurately than any human-operated machines. Some of the advantages of battery-operated drill rigs are no harmful exhaust fumes, less maintenance costs, and if equipped with chargers or exchangeable batteries would offer support for long-working hours of continuous mining operations. Drilling technology has evolved and served the needs of the industry. 

Moreover, the demand for minerals is estimated to increase as many countries in the world are aiming to achieve low carbon economy. While fossil fuels have improved living standards up to certain extent, their related problems such as greenhouse gas emissions has led to global warming. Therefore, to tackle global warming many industries have taken several steps, for instance, the automotive industry is focusing toward the development of low-emission energy and transportation systems. Low-emission energy and transportation systems are more mineral intensive than their fossil fuel-based components; this transition to low carbon economy is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunity for the mining sector.

On the basis of mining type, the global mining drilling services market is segmented into metal, coal, mineral, and quarry. By region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The key players operating in the mining drilling services market are BoartLongyear, Ausdrill, Action D&B, PAMA, Byrnecut Australia, and others.

Analyst Review

According to the perspectives of CXOs of leading companies, the mining drilling services market is significantly depended on the mining industry. The demand for mining drilling services is hampered as the mining industry is facing several environmental problems from past few years. 

The mining operations are energy concentrated and largely depend on the petroleum derivatives such as fossil fuels to meet their energy demands. Moreover, advancement in drilling technologies would contribute in controlling the emissions. As drilling equipment are being developed that does not emit fumes such as battery-operated drill rigs. 

In addition, the factors that boost the market growth are rise in the demand for products such as lithium and cobalt from mineral battery manufacturers as it is used in electric vehicles. Furthermore, there are numerous advancements in the drilling technology such as development of global positioning system (GPS), wireless communications, sensors, and others. Thus, increase in penetration of advanced technologies is expected to act as key trend for global mining drilling services market.
