Current Trends

The Mining Industry is facing some significant issues. Market uncertainty, falling demand, responding to pricing pressure and retention or recruitment of skilled staff continue to be the pressing business concerns in the industry. Some emerging trends have begun to offer alternatives to persisting dilemmas in the market. The current market desire for renewable and innovative energy has led to changes within the industry. The traditional methods of energy retrieval are going through a dramatic change towards methods that are renewable, sustainable, and efficient.

Many companies are focusing on applying new technologies and methods to their processes in order to reduce energy consumption and cultivate their renewable energy sources. This transition towards more renewable energy and diversified supplies is creating both opportunities and challenges for the security of the global energy infrastructure. The rebalancing of energy supply and demand is leading to a new global energy security order. For a market that has traditionally been so dependant on certain forms of energy, renewable technology has caused economic readjustments to adapt to these developments.

Digital technology, digital code to transmit signals and information between different devices, is emerging as a top technology for the energy industry of the future. It has increasingly been making its way into the power generation, transmission, and distribution sectors - making it one of the fastest growing trends in the industry. The role of Cloud computing is constantly increasing and many companies are implementing cloud migration processes. The rise of analytics within operational business units in order to create maximum business value is enabled by a digital strategy centred on the flexibility that the cloud provides.
