    Market Highlights

    Wire ropes were developed in the 1830s for mining hoisting applications. Wire ropes play a vital role in mining production. Increasing automation in the mining industry has led to a surge in the demand for high-quality ropes to be used in a variety of applications. Ropes are used in shovels, draglines, pendants, and material handling in surface mining; and drum hoists, friction winders, and shaft sinking applications in underground mining.

    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the year annus horribilis, tormented the mining industry. Lockdowns at mining sites, supply chain disruptions, and reduced demand were some of the major challenges that the industry faced. The grave impact of the pandemic was also felt in the mining ropes market, which declined by around 9% in 2020. The market gradually began to recover from the last quarter of 2020 and witnessed a healthy growth of about 6.7% in 2021. Mining is one of the few industries that recovered well from the worst of the post-pandemic economic crises. Overall, the mining ropes market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 766 Million in 2027.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the application type, the market is bifurcated into surface mining and underground mining. Surface mining dominates the market and is expected to grow at a higher growth rate during the forecast period. The surface mining application is further bifurcated into shovel machines, dragline machines, material ropeways, and rope-driven conveyors. Similarly, the underground mining application is further sub-segmented as friction winders, drum winders, guide ropes, inclined haulage, and shaft sinking.

    Based on the raw material type, the market is segmented into steel ropes and synthetic ropes. Between these raw material types, steel dominates the mining ropes market and is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. The mining industry involves the extraction and movement of very heavy minerals; steel ropes' high load-bearing capacity makes them the preferred choice for such applications. Synthetic ropes have gained significant traction in the mining industry in recent years. In comparison to steel ropes, synthetic ropes are lighter and require lesser maintenance.

    Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. Between these end-user types, the aftermarket segment is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. Due to extreme working conditions, the life cycle of ropes in the mining industry is averaged to be around 2-4 years only, necessitating regular maintenance and replacement.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing market for mining ropes during the forecast period, with China, Australia, India, and Japan being the major markets. The region led the global mining industry with around a two-thirds’ share in 2021. North America holds the second-largest position in the market, primarily driven by the USA and Canada.
