The increasing demand for metals and minerals is one the key factors driving the growth of the mining equipment rental market.

In order to meet the increasing demand for minerals and the need to expand their existing mining reserves, emerging economies around the world have witnessed significant investments for exploration and mining activities.

Furthermore, in the last decade, emerging economies also accounted for major M&A in the mining and metals industry, resulting in greater capital and resource allocation for mining activities. Other factors such as liberalization of mineral policies and advances in technology have resulted in the shift of mining activities to emerging economies, which will, in turn, bolster the growth of the mining equipment rental market until the end of 2020.
