Green Mining Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:


  • Regulations and Assessments Associated with Environment

Several government agencies across the globe are putting strict regulations in place to reduce carbon footprints during mineral and metal extraction processes. As a result, numerous environmental protection agencies have mandated ecological assessment procedures pertaining to the safe development and rehabilitation of mines, thereby enhancing the need for green mining techniques.

  • Surging Consciousness Regarding the Benefits of Green Mining

The green mining technologies outperform conventional mining technologies in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, chemical efficacy, and energy efficiency. It also contributes to lower overall mining costs and performance by optimizing resource utilization. As a result, the increasing awareness about these advantages of green mining technologies is anticipated to further propel the growth rate of green mining market.

Furthermore, the rise in the price of gold, silver, and other precious metals has resulted in an increase in mineral exploration activities around the world, which is expected to drive the growth of the global green mining market. Furthermore, the growing use of clean and renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, to electrify mining procedures is propelling the green mining market. Additionally, the growth in mounting demand for more productivity with less of expenditure is also projected to bolster the growth of the market.


  • Developments. Shifts and Emergence of Technologies

Furthermore, rising shift from fuel-based mining components towards electrical alternatives coupled with the surging research and development to develop green mining technologies extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the emergence of hybrid diesel-electric loaders for controlling carbon emissions and maintaining ecological sustainability will further expand the future growth of the green mining market.


  • Illegal Mining Activities

There have been reported various uncontrolled and illegal mining activities across the globe, especially in Africa. The increasing number of illegal mining activities around the world may stifle market growth over the forecast period.

  • High Investments

The implementation of new machineries and technologies basically requires heavy investments, which hinders the market growth. As a result, the high capital investment requirement is estimated to pose as a challenge for the green mining market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Green mining Market

The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the green mining market. Mining operations have been temporarily halted around the world as a result of the lockdowns. However, the increase in global demand for metals following the lockdowns is expected to result in a rapid recovery of the green mining market in the near future. Moreover, various disruptions in manufacturing as well as the supply-chain operations due to the various precautionary lockdowns imposed by governments to curb the spread of disease led to huge financial setback for the market. These determinants have largely weighed on the market's revenue trajectory.

However, the suspended and cancelled operations as well as the activities will continue as regulatory bodies have relaxed the enforced lockdowns.

Recent Development

  • In November 2021,Evolution Mining, an Australian gold mining company, purchased Ernest Henry Mining from Glencore for A$1 billion, including A$800 million at the transaction's closing and a further A$200 million payable 12 months later. With this acquisition, Evolution gains full ownership and operational control of the copper-gold mine, as well as a copper concentrate offtake agreement and a separate ore tolling agreement with Glencore. Glencore plc is a multinational commodity trading and mining company based in the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
