Since the earlier period, South America has seen significant activity in the mining sector. Over the decades, the South American mining industry has continued to develop. According to the World Mining Data 2019, 6.6% of total global mining production originated from South America that year. From 2000 to 2017, production increased by 24.3% in the South American market. Furthermore, South America continues to be an essential jurisdiction for mining investments. Despite the downturn and difficulties faced by individual countries and the whole region, South America remains attractive to investors. In South America, developing countries such as Chile, Peru, Brazil, and Argentina account for 85% of mineral and metal exports. Various elements such as beryllium, niobium, tantalum, thorium, lithium, mica, and other rare earth metals are extracted in South America. Copper, iron ore, gold, and silver likely account for most extracted metals. Among various developing countries, Chile is the world’s leading exporter of copper, followed by Peru. Brazil accounts for the third position as the global producer of iron ore. In addition, the South American region is responsible for more than half of the worldwide silver production. South America has more than 13200 mines that are identified and in operation. Increasing demand for these minerals and metals boosts the South American region's need for efficient machinery and equipment. In 2013, South America produced nearly 8% of the global demand for mining machinery, which is expected to increase in the next few years.

According to the research report, "South America Mining Equipment Market Outlook, 2027," published by Actual Market Research, the mining equipment market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.55% for 2022–2027. Economic and political variations across the region have played an essential role in the amount and speed of investment the region has received, particularly in mining machinery. The mining industry in South America is projected to grow in the next six years as the demand and consumption of mined minerals and natural resources are rising. This market is poised to be a hot spot for global mining exploration. The South America region currently produces 45% copper, 21% zinc, 50% silver and 26% molybdenum. In addition to that, the introduction of autonomous haulage systems across the region drives market growth. Hitachi Construction Machinery is developing and testing for next-generation (unmanned and autonomous) mining equipment. The concentrated aim of this system is to achieve a higher level of safety and productivity by improving the efficiency and management of the mining operations.

According to the report, the South American market is segmented into three major countries: Brazil, Argentina, and Columbia. Among these countries, Brazil is considered the industry giant of South America. Brazil has an integrated approach for producing and selling mining equipment across the region. Brazil is one of the five largest mineral producers in the world, with over 3000 mines spread across the territory. In addition, Brazil contains extremely rich mineral resources, including iron ore, tin, copper, pyrochlore, and bauxite.

Further, based on the equipment categories, the market is segmented into four types: crushing, pulverizing, and screening equipment; mineral processing equipment; surface mining equipment; and underground mining equipment. The underground mining equipment market is projected to lead the South American market with more than 35% market share by 2027. Currently, South America is considered the leading region in the global market for coal mining, oil refineries, and underground mining. Further, the South American mining equipment market is segmented into three application types, including mineral mining equipment, metal mining equipment, and coal mining equipment. Among these applications, the metal mining segment is projected to lead the market with more than 45% of the market share during the forecast period. In 2020, Brazil was the largest iron ore producer in the region, with an output of more than 250 million metric tons of metal content.

Impact of Covid-19 on South America Mining Equipment Market:
The year 2020 has been marked by the COVID-19 outbreak. Even though vaccination has begun in several South American countries (except Chile), the effects of the specific pandemic have been extended until 2021. The situations in each country have proven to be very dynamic and require constant monitoring as different measures are adapted depending on the spread of the pandemic. Supply chain disruptions and temporary halts in production have impacted the overall market growth by a heavy measure. However, by the end of 2020, many regional manufacturers will have initiated their development faster. These investments are expected to boost the demand for mining equipment in South America.
