Research Methodology

The Business Research Company’s reports are based on the methodology below.

Data

Our datasets are created using a wide range of proprietary and public sources including leading government bodies, associations, trade journals, market intelligence reports and trade magazines. Data is modelled based on hard data, extrapolation, regression analysis based on known macro data inputs, interpolation between hard figures, comparisons with other geographies and markets, price estimations, and qualitative inputs. Data is triangulated within our unique market data model covering an exhaustive list of 200+ markets across 12 countries and 5 regions. Comparable data is used for sanity check and trend analysis. For example our global market value data is compared to unit sales and price data for the relevant market as well as relevant macro-economic datasets in order to establish validity.

Market Numbers –

Market value is defined as the revenues earned by organizations for products and services within the specified market. The break down by geography is revenue generated within the specific industry by organizations in the specified geography, irrespective of where they are produced.

Competitor Market Share Data

The competitor market share data is intended to represent the companies that gain the most revenues from the given market and the percentage share of the market that they hold. If a company derives most of its revenues from the market, its revenues are given in full. If a large part of the company's revenues come from other markets, only the division of the company which operates in this market is included. Where accurate information is not available on the revenues a company generates from the market its market share is not included, however a profile of the company may still be included if it is a significant competitor in the market.

Metal ore mining industry primarily covers mining of metallic minerals and development of mine sites. It also includes ore dressing, and other beneficiating operations such as crushing, grinding, washing, drying, sintering, concentrating, calcining, and leaching.
The metal ore mining market in this report is segmented into gold ore mining, iron ore mining, silver ore mining, uranium ore mining, vanadium ore mining and all other metal ore mining.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the metal ore mining market in 2017, accounting for around 80% market share. This is mainly because most countries in the region have large mineral resources and demand. Asia Pacific makes up almost two-thirds of the global non-ferrous mineral exploration expenditure. Africa was the second largest region accounting for over 5% market share. Eastern Europe was the smallest region accounting for around 1% market share. 

The use of robots in the metal ore mining industry is improving the efficiency and productivity of mines and reduces operational costs. Robotics is significantly increasing the mining capabilities by rolling out autonomous trucks and drills, thus reducing the need for human workforce. Robots are used in some critical mining activities such as drilling, blasting explosives in the mines, and guiding and driving off-highway haul trucks operating in mines. RioTinto has deployed driverless trucks and robotic rock drilling rigs to haul the ore 24 hours a day and reported 15% reduction in operating costs. For instance, BHP Billiton has also rolled out driverless trucks and drills in its iron ore mines.
