The North American market for mining equipment is projected to climb 5.8 percent annually to $11 billion by 2015. At the same time, the world market for mining equipment is expected to rise 8.5 percent annually to $92 billion. Demand will be stimulated by a pickup in mining output growth as global manufacturing activity and construction expenditures accelerate. Commodity prices are also expected to remain high by historical standards, contributing to a rise in resource exploration and development activity. The world market for nonmetallic minerals mining machinery will rise at a somewhat slower rate than that of metal- and coal-mining equipment. This information is reported in World Mining Machinery, a study from The Freedonia Group Inc.
