With the mining sector opening up amidst the global commodities slump, India has emerged as one of the two lucrative markets for global mining OEMs. India is well endowed with mineral reserves and the mining industry plays a crucial role in the economic growth. Nonetheless, the industry is continually adapting to changing local and global conditions being a cornerstone of the economy, making a significant contribution to economic activity, job creation and foreign exchange earnings. Mining and its related industries are critical to India’s socio-economic development.
With a strong but volatile outlook for the sector, the global mining and metals industry is focused on future growth through expanded production, without losing sight of operational efficiency and cost optimization. The sector is also faced with increased challenges of changing expectations in the maintenance of its social license to operate, skill shortages, effectively executing capital projects and meeting government revenue expectations.
A growing economy needs performance.
India produces 88 minerals - 4 fuel related minerals, 10 metallic minerals, and 50 non-metallic minerals. The opportunity for equipment in mining is expected to remain the largest application due to the increased resource exploration activities, as well as the high demand for precious metals. India sources out raw materials to major sectors like power, iron, steel, fertilizers and cement. Due to the high degree of complexity and large scale operations, mining requires significant investments in earthmoving equipment. The Eicher Pro 6000 mining trucks introduced over a year ago are ideally suited for various applications; an innovative and versatile solution that meets the expectations of the industry.
