NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The mining of natural resources remains a lucrative and dynamic industry. According to data provided by Research and Markets, the global mining market is expected to grow from USD 1,641.67 Billion in 2020 to USD 2,427.85 Billion in 2025 while at a CAGR of 7%. One major reason for the anticipated growth in the mining industry has to do with energy. The use of renewable energy is helping mining companies reduce power costs and control emissions in the mines. As more solar and wind projects are built near mine sites, the cost of connecting to the power grid is also reduced. Site-appropriate renewable energy sources are reliable, consistent and economical. For instance, BHP and RioTinto have started using renewable energy sources in their mines. In addition, minerals such as nickel and cobalt are in high demand because they are being used in batteries designed to power electric vehicles. Hudbay Minerals Inc.

One major segment of the mining market is focused on non-ferrous metals, which includes aluminum, copper, lead, tin, nickel, titanium, and zinc. These metals are used across a wide range of industries, including rapidly growing and innovative tech sectors. For example, titanium is used in anodic spark deposition, a technology that has the potential for expanding titanium's suitability for automotive, biomechanical, marine, and industrial applications. Furthermore, according to research by Technavio, it is also used in the manufacturing of titanium exhausts. Another example is copper, which has widespread applications in different end-user segments and sectors including electrical and electronics, construction, transportation, and consumer durables. Additionally, copper's unique property to restrict bacterial growth on its surface makes it useful in air conditioning systems and in the healthcare sector.
