“Benefits of renting mining equipment for short duration projects and small mining companies primarily drives this market. The cost of financing is the biggest deterrent to owning a mining equipment. Mining companies or contractors require a large credit source or loan in order to purchase a mining equipment. With the annual interest rate registering an increase from approximately 3% in 2011 to 5.6% of the equipment cost in 2014, the cost of financing a mining equipment has increased,” said Anju Ajaykumar, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for tools and components research.

“Another major factor is the amount of funds left for use toward other projects or business ventures after opting to purchase mining equipment. Therefore, purchasing mining equipment can have an adverse impact on the liquidity of a company and may also hinder its ability to procure finances in the future. In sharp contrast to this, the financial flexibility offered by rental mining equipment facilitates revenue growth of mining companies,” added Anju.

The global mining equipment rental market by coal mining was valued at USD 20.63 billion in 2015. Coal forms a significant part of global energy production. It catered to about 30% of the global energy demand in 2015, and thus, the power industry is the main end-user of mined coal products. Many manufacturing plants also use coal in industrial furnaces and ovens. With growing urbanization in many developing countries, there is an increased need for power, generating more demand for coal.

The industrial metals segment includes bauxite, chromium, cobalt, copper, iron ore, lead, manganese, nickel, tin, titanium, vanadium, and zinc. Iron ore accounts for the majority of industrial metals and its demand is growing at a rapid rate in many developing countries. The emergence of manufacturing industries in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil is playing a significant role in the growth of this segment.

Global mining equipment rental market by mineral mining

The global mining equipment rental market by mineral mining was valued at USD 13.3 billion in 2015. The global demand for rental mineral mining equipment is driven by the construction industry worldwide.
