Global Stone Mining and Quarrying Market Briefing provides strategists, marketers and senior management with the critical information they need to assess the global stone mining and quarrying sector.
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the stone mining and quarrying market in 2016, accounting for around 50% of the market. This was mainly due to the large size of the region, mainly characterized by plentiful mineral resources, and an extensive construction market. North America was the second largest region accounting for around 22% of the market. Western Europe was the third largest region accounting for around 10% of the market.
Remote surveying and geological mapping for mines and quarries is increasingly being done using LIDAR and UAV as it offers fast, accurate data to plan mining processes. LIDAR, which stands for light detection and ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances). LIDAR is used for surveying the mining area and helps in determining ore body, mining pit volume, and pre-strip and spoil surface volumes. UAVs, which stands for unmanned aerial vehicle or drone, is a type of aircraft that operates without a human pilot onboard.
The recent improvements in technology have resulted in the development of UAVs for multiple purposes. in mining, UAVs are used for aerial photography, remote sensing, and searching, monitoring and providing information from hazardous locations
