Dassault Systèmes mining software brand Geovia has emerged as the most popular mine planning and management software system according to a new research report from GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. Geovia is used by a third of the 281 mines surveyed, ahead of Datamine (15.3%) and Maptek (10.3%).
Dassault says that its product is “well positioned to take advantage of the expected increased use of mine planning and management software over the next two years.”
GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Global Mine-Site Technology Adoption Survey, 2018’, reveals that Geovia is currently the most popular mine planning and management software brand, used by a third of the 281 mines surveyed, ahead of Datamine (15.3%) and Maptek (10.3%).
According to David Kurtz, director of analysis, mining and construction at GlobalData: “While mine planning and management software is used to some extent by 88% of the mines we surveyed globally, only 24% reported having fully invested in it with 48% indicating plans to invest, either for the first time or on top of previous investments, over the next two years, highlighting the potential for future growth.’’
The opportunity for mining software sales growth looks to be greatest in Asia as mines in Australia and the Americas were most likely to have already invested in mine planning and management software (90% in both), up from 82% and 83% in 2016, and as a result less likely to be planning further investment.
‘‘By contrast,” adds Kurtz, “mines in Asia have been slower to adopt these technology’s and have a higher likelihood of ‘planning to invest’ in software. In 2016 only 65% of mines had invested in Asia and, whilst this has risen to 85% in 2018, only 6% consider themselves to have fully invested, with a substantial 70% share of mines in the region intending to invest more in mine planning and management software in the coming two years, far more than in any other global region.’’
The research methodology, according to Dassault, was: “The surveys into mine planning and management software providers and propensity to invest in this were conducted in 2016 and 2018 and included only operating mine sites. Respondents included mine managers, general manager and mine-site IT managers, and interviews were conducted via the telephone with surveys also emailed to qualified individuals. A total of 281 mines were surveyed regarding their provider of mine planning and management software, with multiple products used in a number of cases.”
