Rock Duster Market: Introduction
Rock duster equipment is used in coal mines to prevent coal dust explosion. Most of the large mining companies are inclining towards installing advanced equipment and technology to bring in operational efficiency and automation in mines to reduce the negative impact of mining on the environment and workers.
Primary external factors influencing the mining activities and rock duster equipment’s demand are stringent regulation, geopolitical issues and the legal limit on metal & mineral excavation which precipitate mining industries to use rock dusters during the forecast period.
Other significant end-use industries for the rock duster market are agriculture and construction. Rock dust has greater potential to improve soil fertility as it contains mineral and trace elements beneficial for agricultural land, hence crop yield.
Increase in adoption of rock duster in agricultural land has been witnessed, to enhance nutritional and mineral value which is increasing the productively of agriculture land.
Combatting the impact of decreasing the percentage of arable land in developing countries i.e. China are key factors driving the demand for rock dusters in the market during the assessment period.
Rock Duster Market: Market Dynamics
The growing need for energy in industrial and commercial sectors due to the rise in the production of goods and consumables is expected to drive the coal mining industries, thus positively impacting the rock dusters market.
Rising global population will elevate the demand for food. Limited arable land, as well as an increase in the percentage of infertile agricultural land due to excessive land utilization, have favored the growth of rock duster equipment in the agriculture industry.
The main challenging factor in the rock duster market is the lack of awareness among industry professionals in developing economies. Another factor like the price of rock duster may also slightly impact rock duster market growth during the forecast period.
The mining industries had acquired rock duster manufacturers in the past to customize the equipment specifically according to their needs. The key rock duster manufacture players are incorporating advance technology in rock duster to offer better feature products to customers.
Strategic initiatives such as expanding geographical footprint, technology advancement, acquisition and partnership with distributors are key developments chiefly adopted by rock duster manufacturers.
Rock Duster Market: Regional Outlook
The demand for rock duster is anticipated to come mainly from high mining production regions. Coal is the maximum mined mineral, for instance in 2018 around 7,813 million tonnes of coal was produced globally.
Countries such as the US, China, Australia, and Russia are among the largest producer of coal thus sales of rock duster in these countries will be prominent among all.
North America, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America hold a significant share in the global rock duster market as mining activities in these regions are growing significantly.
Africa has an abundance of natural resources which includes cobalt, copper and natural gas, among others, and hence Middle East & Africa is estimated to register healthy growth in terms of rock duster demand in future.
In Latin America, countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina are key demand centers for rock duster market. Brazil has large reserves of iron ore, aluminum, and nickel. Increase in mining activities in the Latin America region is projected to drive rock duster demand.
Rise in mining activities to meet the growing demand for metal in several end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and industrial equipment, among others is anticipated to drive rock duster demand.
