When comparing the results for underground and surface mining operations, there was a much higher use of independent third-parties for the latter. Figure 2 shows the share of respondents who indicated they use either an ‘independent third-party’ or a ‘mix of both’. For each of the three categories, 50% or more surface mining respondents have chosen to utilize third-party providers to some extent. The figures were higher for non-strategic parts and processing equipment.
Surface mining operations use a broad range of equipment and mining tools to extract/move materials. Each operation usually relies on a range of different types of excavators and shovels. Underground mining operations normally rely on particular pieces of equipment for production needs and material movement requirements. For this reason, the utilization of these machines needs to remain high and production downtime should be minimized. This increases the likelihood of choosing OEM parts and services by respondents with underground mining activities, who have much lower rates of third-party provider engagements. Fewer than 30% of respondents use third-parties in each of the three categories.
