Rental mining holds a massive share in the global market for mining equipment. The high pricing of capital, increasing overhead cost, and the maintenance cost linked with the ownership of mining equipment have prompted end-users to rent these mining equipment. The purchase or rental of mining equipment depends upon factors like the nature of the project and its duration time. Most commonly, companies prefer to rent these equipment for a small-scale project having a duration of a short span instead of purchasing them.
The large-scale mining organizations typically lay focus on their ongoing projects instead of taking any risks and jumping into new ones. This is known as shielding strategy that companies adopt. This way, the companies are able to go slow on their new explorations, cut-down on the cost of expenditure, and move ahead with tighter operations in order to magnify the potential of the ongoing projects. These strategies provide them with a protection from the impact of dwindling down commodity pricings, increasing energy bills, and expensive operations. Owing to this, the margin of profit of rental mining equipment has significantly decreased as various leading players in the industry have curbed down their investment budget for new projects.
Furthermore, the renting a mining equipment is a cost-effective strategy rather than owning these equipment, especially for projects running for a short span of time. These equipment are highly beneficial for small-scale mining organizations and contractors as they offer increasing financial flexibility, low cost related to ownership, and reduced maintenance cost.
