Mechanical Mine Clearance Systems Market Demand Is Substantially Expanding In Europe

Mechanical mine clearance systems eradicate land mines with the use of the mechanical equipment. This procedure is comparatively rapid and efficient as paralleled to manual demining. The mechanical mine clearance system is used equally in the military along with humanitarian demining across the globe.

The global market for mechanical mine clearance systems is anticipated to cross more than US$ 52 million by the end of the forecast period (2016-2024). It was estimated at US$ 40 million in the year 2016. The market is rising at the lucrative CAGR of around 3.9% during the projected period.

Mine flail, mine tiller, and combined machine are the different types of mechanical mine clearance systems obtainable in the market. Based on the terms of growth, the market for mine flail will possibly dominate the market further. It is intensifying at the profitable CAGR of 3.9% throughout the forecast period.

The cost for a single mechanical mine clearance system stands for US$ 675000. Mine flail is the market leader presently. Projections say that around 60% of the total market is consumed by expensive mine flail machines. In 2016, it accumulated over US$ 20 million of revenues. Other segments such as the combined machine was valued around US$ 9 million in 2016. It will further rise at the CAGR of 4.5% over the foreseeable period of time.

Top most manufacturers operating in the mechanical mine clearance systems market consist of DOK-ING d.o.o., Armtrac Limited, Digger DTR –Demining Technologies, Scanjack AB, Rheinmetall AG, and MineWolf Systems AG.

Factors Driving the Market Demand For Mechanical Mine Clearance Systems

The market has experienced high demand for the past few years owing to the growing significance landmines clearance for recuperation purposes. Along with this, increased interest from certain non-profit organizations such as Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) and United Nations to mechanical demining will propel the industry demand in the near future.

Recently, the industry has seen increased implementation of remotely or robotic controlled mechanical mine clearance vehicles owing to the expanding concerns of operator’s safety. According to a forecast by persistence market research, by the end 2024, this fragment will significantly cross US$ 15.9 million by the end of the predicted era.

The military demining market’s manufacturing processes, as well as procurements, are expected to be notably affected by the mechanical mine clearance system’s dependency on government instructions and proposals. On the other hand, the humanitarian demining technologies market in the coming years will gain traction and is expected to contribute in transporting massive volumes of civic back to their houses.

Market Restraints

  • Operators sometimes face issues to transport the vehicles carrying mechanical mine clearance systems via display and camera supports. The perilous line of work many times is the huge concern for operators dealing with the professional equipment.

  • The maintenance of these systems are another vital aspect hampering the growing demand for the market. The maintenance costs are extremely overpriced and may act as the liability for customers.

  • Also, the installation costs of setting up these systems are very expensive even if it is via purchase or rent. Purchasing the machine costs is intolerably expensive for the end-users that further arbitrarily adds a lot of liability to the holder.
