Key Developments in the Electric Shovel Landscape

In February 2021, Haerwusu Coal Mine introduced an Intelligent Guiding System to assist several dragline strippers in obtaining precision mining at its Open-pit Coal Mine, operated by Shenhua Zhungeer Energy Co., Ltd.

These electric shovels feature a GNSS multi-frequency positioning and directional technology based on three satellites, as well as IoT technology. These shovels work via remote control of an industrial tablet PC and cloud server. Further, it is possible to achieve precision excavator guidance through the software.

This system can issue regular and real-time operation commands through the web and app, and it can manage machine information, crew information, and personnel information in an integrated manner.

Likewise, in January 2021 Anglo American deployed an electric shovel for its open-pit copper project Quellaveco in Peru. During the first phase of work in Quellaveco, three shovels were deployed, each of which would weight approximately 630 light trucks.

In addition, Anglo American estimates that Quellaveco's ore reserves total 1.3 billion tonnes and will start production in 2022. During the first decade of operation, the project is expected to produce 300,000 t/y copper equivalent.

In addition, the 291-tonne truck used in the project incorporates an electric-drive engine. With the completion of the installation of its first electric shovel, Quellaveco has reached a new milestone in its history.

Electric shovels are machines equipped with a bucket (digger) and used to perform different operations such as mineral extraction, loading, and digging of earth, fragmented rocks, etc.

Electric shovels are types of cables or rope excavators, where the digging arm is powered and controlled by steel ropes and winches, instead of hydraulics as found in conventional excavators.

While the primary function of electric shovels is to excavate the overburden in mining operations, they can be used in the loading of different extracted minerals like coal.

In addition, they are deployed for digging cuts in road works, gravel banks, and clay pits. Continuous innovation in terms of features and designs by leading manufacturers operating in electric shovels is expected to increase the demand for electric shovels in upcoming years.

What are Primary Growth Drivers for Electric Shovels Demand?

The global market is mainly driven due to the increasing mining activities across the globe. Growth of the mining industry is attributed to the continuing recovery in commodity prices, boosted by overall economic growth which in turn has also fuelled the demand for electric shovel in the mining sector.

Over the past few years, the count of active mines has also increased, and is anticipated to raise the demand for electric shovel in the mining sector, during the forecast period. Besides, growing demand from mineral-based commodities across the globe is expected to provide a further boost for the growth of the market.

Abilities such as digging out tough material and removal of big sized boulders play an important role to drive the growth of market. Additionally, surging popularity of equipment rentals business across the globe further fuels the growth of electric shovel market over the forecast period.

How is Asia Emerging as an Important Investment Destination for Electric Shovel Manufacturers?

The global electric shovel market is segmented into seven regions: North America (USA and Canada), Latin America (Mexico, Brazil and Rest of Latin America), and Europe (Germany, UK, Spain, France, and Russia).

Other regions are East Asia (Japan, China and South Korea), South Asia (India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Rest of South Asia), Middle East and Africa (GCC, South and North Africa), and Oceania (Australia and New Zealand).

Among all the regions across the globe, owing to the growing mining activities in countries such as China, the Asian electric shovel is projected to capture a significant market share over the forecast period.

Besides, the ever-increasing construction activities in Asian countries is further expected to boost the demand for electric shovel in upcoming years.

Europe and the Americas are trailing behind, exhibiting significant market potential in the global electric shovel market during the forecast period.

On the other hand, the regions like MEA and Oceania are expected to show comparatively sluggish growth for electric shovel during the forecast period.
