Mining Locomotive Market Demand, Supply, Growth Factors, Latest Rising Trend and Forecast to 2032

Mining locomotives are used to transfer the materials and personnel in and out of mines. Materials transported typically include coal, ore and over-burden (also called variously slack, spoils waste, culm, tilings to name a few). In early 1930s, locomotives were introduced for under-ground operation in coal mines. Following nationalization of the coal industry in 1947 the use of locomotives spread rapidly, doubling in the first year and after ten years the numbers in use had increased drastically. In the initial years, locomotives were be used on existing transport roadways. After nationalisation, reconstruction and construction often involved the newly approved horizon mining principle gradients in favour of the load. Since then the use of locomotives has been gradually extended to other parts of the mining.

Mining Locomotive Market: Driver

New discovery of the underground mines is one of the key factors which are driving the growth of the mining locomotive market in developing countries. Furthermore, rise in demand for natural resources (such as coal, metals) will likely to spur the demand of the underground mines that in turn increase the demand for mining locomotive market. Also, high loading capacity of these locomotive would drive the demand for mining locomotive market

Mining Locomotive Market: Restraint

However, stringent emission norms related with increase in pollutions would restraint the demand for diesel mining locomotive market. For instance, the U.S. MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) broadcast rules setting compliance standards for both underground metal / nonmetal and coal workers. As industry works to achieve compliance with these standards, mine operators are looking for feasible methods for reducing DPM (Diesel Particulate Matter) concentrations in their mines.

Mining Locomotive Market: Trend

Now a days, unmanned electric locomotives is a trending opportunity for the manufacturers. As safety has become a major issues related with underground mining workers. Most of the underground mining sites are adopting this technology to sustain their market share for mining locomotive market. For instance (in February 2017), China ENFI signed a contract with NFCA Mining for the Chambishi Main & West Ore Body 500m Unmanned Electric Locomotive Transportation Project in Zambia. These locomotives are applicable to all underground mines, especially those with such special conditions as flooding, high rock-burst and high altitude. Moreover, unmanned locomotive transportation electronic control system is applicable to such complex working conditions as multi-column marshalling, single or dual-locomotive traction and bends & turnout.
