These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
A tunnel boring machine (TBM) is advanced equipment that helps excavate tunnels with a circular cross-section through various soil and rock strata. It is an alternative to the drilling and blasting (D&B) method and conventional hand mining of soil. It reduces the disturbance caused to the surrounding ground and produces a smooth tunnel wall. In addition, it minimizes the cost of lining the tunnel and makes the tunnel suitable for use in heavily urbanized areas. It also offers several advantages, including continuous operation, lesser rock damages, fewer support requirements, and higher efficiency and worker safety.
The increasing utilization of TBMs in the mining industry, along with new innovations in rock cutting technology, represents one of the key factors driving the market. In addition, governments of several countries are extensively investing in infrastructural development like highways. This, along with the extensive application of TBMs in the water pipeline, hydropower, and oil and gas pipeline projects, is positively influencing the market. Besides this, the growing tunnel safety regulations and improving underground infrastructure around the world are contributing to the growth of the market. Additionally, rising awareness about the advantages of TBMs, such as high specific gravity and viscosity, and stability under high pressure, is propelling the overall sales of TBMs. Some of the other factors offering lucrative growth opportunities to market players are rapid urbanization, increasing development of smart cities, and the growing trend of tunnel automation. These players are also focusing on microtunnel activities to construct several kilometers of underground infrastructure worldwide to increase their overall sales and profitability, which is projected to strengthen the growth of the market.
