MINING EQUIPMENT INDEX

Mining Equipment Market Down Sharply in Q3

Just 835 machines were delivered during Q3 — a 24% decline vs. Q2.  The value of these shipments was 17% lower than Q2 reflecting disproportionately greater reductions in the delivery of lower-priced product lines and smaller units within those product lines.  While this marks the third quarterly decline this year, it is far greater than those recorded in Q1 and Q2 which appeared to be more of a pause in the latest expansion cycle.  It appears to mark the end of the recovery/expansion that began in Q2 2016 but the severity of the decline is disproportionate to conditions in other mining activity.

The declines are widespread but but mask substantial variations by product line, size, geography and mineral with some sectors increasing while others dropped even more sharply than the overall contraction. Shipments of mining trucks (by far the largest product line in terms of both units and value) were down by 25%; excavators/loaders by 22% with hydraulic shovels/loaders leading the decline. Crawler and wheel dozer shipments were down by 14%.  In sharp contrast, electric/rope shovel deliveries tripled but the volume for these extremely large excavators is very small…
