Surface Mining Market Overview

Surface mining refers to a category of mining in which mineral deposits are obtained by removing overlying soil and rock. Major type of surface mining methods includes strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal. Surface mining offers various advantages over underground mining such as low operational cost and less complication.

Market Size and Forecast

Global surface mining market is anticipated to flourish at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Factors such as increasing consumption of coal and rising demand for metals and minerals are anticipated to fuel the growth of the surface mining market during the forecast period. Moreover, rising consumption of electricity across the globe is widening the demand for coal which further is anticipated to supplement the growth of the surface mining market.

North America captured the largest percentage of market share in overall surface mining market and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Presence of high number of coal, metallic and non-metallic reserves in the region is anticipated to drive the growth of the surface mining market in the North America region. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, U.S. demonstrated coal reserves were estimated to be 476 billion short tons. Similarly, abundance of non-metallic mineral ores in Canada is believed to strengthen the growth of surface mining market in North America. According to Mining Association of Canada, in 2014, total mining establishments in Canada was held to be 1,192, out of which, 1,120 reserves were non-metallic mining establishments. U.S. and Canada are believed to be the major contributor to the growth of the surface mining market in the North America region.
