Dublin, Nov. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Metal Ore Global Market Report 2023" has been added to's offering.

The global metal ore market grew from $483.29 billion in 2022 to $535.73 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.9%. The metal ore market is expected to grow to $808.18 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 10.8%.

Mining companies are starting to use cognitive computing to enhance the decision-making capabilities in mining operations. The ability of cognitive computing to give insights on future trends in the industry and make real-time decisions are some of the driving factors for mining companies to implement this technology. The key areas where cognitive computing and predictive technology helps mining companies include giving accurate information on drilling locations, depth to be drilled, predicting the equipment failure in advance, and autonomous transportation. Goldcorp is using IBM Watson to analyze drilling reports and geological survey reports. This approach assists geologists with the exploration process and by helping them make more accurate, data-driven decisions. For instance,, the global cognitive computing market reached $21.6 billion in 2021 .

Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the metal ore market in 2022. Western Europe was the second largest region in the metal ore market. The regions covered in the metal ore market are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The presence of large metal ore reserves globally supported metal ore mining activities. Metal ore reserves such as iron ore reserves are available in almost every country worldwide with 50 countries involved in mining iron ore.
