Mining and Resources

Australian mining exploration, production and maintenance are all expected to lift significantly through 2018 with an expected growth of 5.5% in 2017-18.


This growth is bringing opportunities for companies to adopt innovative approaches to improve productivity and drive value.


In particular, Australia and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is the largest and fastest growing market for mining equipment and implementation of mining automation technologies with forecasts tipping the market to increase in value from $US2.22 billion in 2017 to $US3.29 billion by 2023.
