Maintenance and Aftermarket Preferences in Australian Mining, 2014

on Tuesday, 8 July 2014 include new market research report " Australian Mining Maintenance and Aftermarket Preferences 2014: Industry Size, Shares, Growth, Analysis, Trends And Forecast" to its huge collection of research reports.

In February and March 2014, Timetric surveyed 110 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers in over 90 operating Australian mines. For this report we focused on the questions relating to respondents preferences for maintenance and aftermarket support, together with their contract preferences.

Areas of analysis include:
  • Respondents were asked to identify which type of company they use for three main types of purchase: strategic parts, non-strategic parts, and ore-processing equipment.
  • Respondents were asked to describe their current preference for after-sales support. They were asked to choose between three different options: ‘Work with me’, ‘Do it for me’ and ‘Do it myself’.
  • When compares these responses to ratings of performance and expectations of the respondents current OEM
  • Respondents were asked about their preferences for service contracts. Respondents could choose from: ‘Lifecycle management’, ‘Operations and maintenance’, or ‘Maintenance only’.
  • Due to other questions asked throughout the survey we are able to breakdown and analyze results based respondents company size, commodity mined, mine method and job title.
Executive summary:
  • Maintenance and aftermarket services are taking an increasingly important role in the Australian mining sector. Following significant capital investment in new production capacity from 2008 to 2012, there is now record-high Australian commodity production, leading to a much larger mining equipment fleet, all of which requires maintenance and aftermarket servicing.
  • Many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been quick to realize the benefits of providing better servicing, and have moved to adopt more product lifecycle agreements with customers. As such, more OEMs have adopted life-cycle management as standard practice, and opened aftermarket service centers.
  • In February and March 2014, Timetric surveyed 110 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers currently working in 90 Australian mines. Respondents were asked specific questions about their preferences for maintenance and aftermarket services, including contracting and companies used.
