In the Middle East and Africa region, the future of the mining industry is projected to be efficient and effective. Much of the land in the Middle East has not been explored with modern techniques and equipment. However, Africa is blessed with a rich bounty of natural resources. Over 30% of the world’s global mineral reserves have been found in Africa. However, less than 5% of the total global mineral exploration and extraction budget is invested in the continent's economy. Thus, the potential for expanding the mining industry across the Middle East and Africa region is immense. Many developing countries across the region have recently introduced or are working on new mining laws that seek to encourage investments in various fields. For instance, the Gulf Cooperation Council countries aim to develop a unified regulatory system in several areas, including mining and mining equipment. According to the research, more than 1500 mineral facilities are present in the Middle East and Africa region. These facilities include mines, plants, mills, and refineries for aluminum, cement, coal, copper, diamond, gold, iron, steel, nickel, platinum-group metals, salt, silver, etc. In addition, petroleum and coal are among the most abundant materials across the region. Many governments and international exploration companies have continued to explore across the region for such valuable minerals.

According to the research report, "The Middle East & Africa Mining Equipment Market Outlook, 2027," published by Actual Market Research, the mining equipment market is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.60% during the forecast period playing a significant role in the growth of global mining equipment market. The mining, resources, and infrastructure opportunities across the region are impressive. Gulf countries, in particular, are looking to diversify their economies to reduce their dependency on oil and gas and to create employment for a young and fast-growing population. The Middle East & Africa mining equipment market is segmented into three major countries: the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. Among these countries, Saudi Arabia mining equipment market is estimated to dominate the market with more than 35% by the end of the forecast period. Over 48 minerals have been identified across Saudi Arabia, with at least 15 industrial minerals that can become commercially viable options. The Deputy Ministry for Mineral Resources (DMMR) has registered more than 1270 sites for precious metals and more than 1170 sites for non-precious metals. According to the research, more than 780 mining companies are listed in Saudi Arabia. In addition, the Saudi Arabian government aims to increase investments in mining processes, the manufacture of mining equipment, and the mineral production sectors.

According to the report, the Middle East and Africa mining equipment market is segmented into four categories: crushing, pulverizing, and screening equipment; mineral processing equipment; surface mining equipment; and underground mining equipment. Underground mining equipment is estimated to acquire nearly half of the market share during the forecast period. In this region, underground mining machines' production is higher than surface mining equipment. In addition, the rising demand for rare earth metals and valuable minerals has boosted the demand for underground mining equipment across the region. Furthermore, the market is segregated into three mining applications: mineral, metal, and coal. Mineral mining equipment is expected to acquire the most significant market share during the forecast period. This segment is expected to acquire more than 45% of the Middle East and Africa market share. On the basis of power output, the 500–2000 HP output segment is forecasted to lead the market by 2027.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Middle East & Africa Mining Equipment Market:
The COVID-19 pandemic has impeded the overall growth of the mining machinery and equipment market in the Middle East and Africa region. The Middle East and Africa mining industry has struggled with economic problems, but the COVID-19 outbreak was highly unpredictable. The sudden breakdown of day-to-day activities and strict lockdowns across many developing countries affected the market growth for the mining sector. However, changes in consumer preference and rising demand for valuable minerals and metals for diverse industries have propelled the overall market growth for mining equipment across the Middle East and Africa.
