Worldwide Deep Sea Mining Market Outlook to 2030 Featuring Eramet Group, Hydril Pressure Control, Nordic Ocean Resources, Teledyne Technologies, UK Seabed Resources, and Many Others

Dublin, July 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Deep Sea Mining Technologies, Equipment and Mineral Targets" report has been added to's offering.

This report examines deep-sea mining equipment, technologies, mineral revenue potential and the current state of the market. The analysis includes a detailed survey of upcoming organizations in the market as well as existing players. Included is an examination, description and valuation of global and regional market sizes for 2020 through 2030.

While a wide range of companies operates in the market, below is a broad classification of these companies:

  • Core deep sea mining companies (for example, Nautilus Minerals and Neptune Minerals).
  • Companies and institutions (including government bodies) that are not yet active in the deep sea mining market but have applied for licensing and have shown interest in deep sea mining.
  • Manufacturers of deep sea mining equipment.

APAC is the largest market for deep sea mining in terms of licenses granted for deep sea mining activities. All deep sea mining contracts for ISA are required to have a state sponsor and according to the agreements, the sponsoring government will have a share in the revenue that the mining company expects to generate.

Within APAC, Oceania (which consists of countries or sovereign states such as Palau, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, as well as New Zealand and Australia) is the issuer of the largest number of deep sea mining licenses. The EEZs within Oceania have the largest number of sea floor massive sulphide (SMS) deposits and hence sees a large number of mining applications. APAC is also expected to see the largest revenue from deep sea mining activities in the coming years.

APAC is followed by Europe and North America in terms of licenses granted (and pending applications). In North America, the U.S. has not ratified ISA and is not a member of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). Hence, licenses granted and mining active by the

U.S. is not covered by ISA. APAC is also expected to see strong growth in deep sea mining activity mainly due to the presence of a large number of SMS deposits with the EEZ of various countries.
