The copper, nickel, lead and zinc mining industries include companies developing mine sites, mining and converting ores into copper, nickel, lead or zinc content. Mining is either done through underground and surface mining techniques. Underground mining is used to reach deeper deposits which requires digging tunnels or shafts to reach buried ore deposits. Surface mining is used for less valuable deposits and is done by removing surface vegetation or layers of bedrock to reach ore deposits. 80% of zinc mining is extracted through underground mining whereas 90% of copper mining is done in open pits. The market in this report is segmented into copper ore mining, zinc ore mining, lead ore mining, and nickel ore mining segments.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the copper, nickel, lead, and zinc mining market in 2017, accounting for 52% market share. This can be partially attributed to copper and lead demand by the electrical and electronic industry for manufacturing. North America was the second largest region accounting for 12% market share. Eastern Europe was the smallest region accounting for 3% market share.

The use of autonomous hauling systems trucks in the mining industry is significantly enhancing production efficiency and reducing turnaround time. Autonomous haulage systems control and track mining vehicle movements, coordinates and autonomously drives off-highway haul trucks operating in a mine. This system increases efficiency by minimizing delays, reducingoperating costs and reducing fuel consumption, thereby minimizing carbon emissions. For example, RioTinto has already implemented AHS in their mines and has reported 13% reduction in load and haul operating costs from the automated fleet.
