Technology Investment Priorities in Australian Mining, 2014
Overall trends in the data revealed-
Respondents were asked to review 12 different technology areas ranging from 'Communication product/systems' to 'Real-time video training'. They were then asked if their operations had either invested in the technology or were considering investments, or neither.
Investment intentions across these 12 technology areas have been analyzed according to various segmentations, including mine type, company size and commodity type. Identifying different trends based on these different groups.
Respondents were specifically asked about their views on the timeframes of autonomous vehicles, whether they saw autonomous vehicles as a viable option at their operation.
Finally, GlobalData asked respondents their views of what the dominant driver of technology is, and despite 'Safety' being consistently ranked as the number one driver, other priorities were identified in our report based on job titles and company size.
Technology Investment Priorities in Australian Mining, 2014 published by GlobalData-Mining Intelligence Centre, provides readers with a detailed analysis of current investment priorities in the Australian mining sector. The analysis is based upon GlobalData's survey of 110 mine managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers.
