Stone mining and quarrying industry primarily includes the development of mine sites, mining and quarrying of dimension stone such as rough blocks or slabs of stone, and crushed and broken stone. It also comprises stone beneficiating activities such as crushing, grinding, washing, screening, pulverizing, and sizing The market in this report is segmented into dimension stone mining and crushed stone mining.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the stone mining and quarrying market in 2017, accounting for over 53% 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 over 16% market share. Middle East was the smallest region accounting for over 4% of the market. This is due to the region’s relatively small size and lower levels of mineral resources in the area and strict mining law legislations in the region.  

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
