HPGR is fragmentation equipment that is widely used in sectors like briquetting, cement, diamond, and iron ore sector. HPGR has a considerable number of advantages such as low energy consumption, low operating cost and high throughput rates. According to the Coalition for Eco-Efficient Comminution (CEEC), crushing and grinding consumes around 53% of the total energy utilized by mining sections, which values above 10% of the overall mining cost. Furthermore, the world is rapidly becoming more green, ie energy conscious; Mining industries are looking to reduce their energy consumption since mining and mineral processing are extensive energy users. Grinding, is generally the most energy-intensive step between metal and mine,
Increasing demand for low emission and high-efficiency comminution solutions is expected to be the primary factor fueling the market growth of high pressure grinding rollers (HPGR), globally. In addition to this, falling ore grades have increased demand for better comminution solutions worldwide which is expected to aid market growth for high pressure grinding rollers.
Furthermore, factors such as improved design and proven operational availability for some toughest and hardest ores are other factors likely to fuel the growth of the target market.
However, high initial cost and higher maintenance required for high pressure grinding rollers is significant factor expected to challenge the growth of high pressure grinding rollers market. The high initial cost of HPGRs compared to traditional techniques is a major factor that hinders wide adoption of HPGRs in small and medium scale industries. Nonetheless, as the demand for energy-efficient machines increases in the market, the HPGR market presents itself as an excellent opportunity to grow globally.
Global high pressure grinding rollers market is segmented on the basis of power rating, applications, and region. On the basis of power rating, market is segmented into (2 x 100 kW - 2 x 650 kW), (2 x 650 kW - 2 x 1,900 kW), (2 x 1,900 kW - 2 x 3,700 kW), (2 x 3,700 kW), and beyond. 2 x 1,900 kW - 2 x 3,700 kW segment accounts for the majority share in the high pressure grinding rollers market, while the 2 x 650 kW - 2 x 1,900 kW is expected to register the tremendous extension rate over the outlook period. Based on applications, the market is segmented into diamond liberation, base metal liberation, expensive ore beneficiation, and pellet feed development. The precious metal beneficiary accounts for a majority share in the high pressure grinding rollers market.
