Global marine mining market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 30% during the forecast period. Marine mining or remote ocean mining is the process of retrieving mineral deposits from the sea and the area of the ocean below 200 meters. Rise in industrialization, growing disposable income and increase in demand for durable goods such as automobiles and household equipment with high mineral or metal content are projected to propel the growth of global marine mining market. Additionally, the increasing adoption of precious metals and metal nanoparticles such as nickel, gold, and platinum in several industrial segments further drives the market. Moreover, the revived importance of phosphorous based artificial fertilizers is further influencing the phosphorus nodule mining, which in turn has direct implications on the global marine mining market.

The Global Marine Mining market is segmented based on technology, metal, region and company. Based on technology, the market can be segmented into Remotely Operated Vehicles [ROVs], SONAR, Marine Seismic Methods. The Remotely Operated Vehicles [ROVs] segment dominates the market owing to their use in ocean exploration and other scientific purposes. Based on metals, the market can be fragmented into Silver, Gold, Copper, Zinc & Others. The Gold segment is projected to dominate the market on account of its widespread use in jewellery, watches, medals & statues, electronics & computers, dentistry & medicine, among others.

Regionally, the Marine Mining market is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the overall Marine Mining market followed by North America, Europe, South America and Middle East and Africa.
