Global Stone Mining and Quarrying Market Briefing 2017 – Research and Markets

The “Stone
Mining and Quarrying Market Global Briefing 2017” report has
been added to Research and Markets’ offering.

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.
