Overall trends in the data revealed - - While OEMs dominate the supply of strategic parts with 45% choosing purely OEMs and 54% a mix of OEMs and third parties, third parties have a greater penetration of non-strategic parts. Availability of spare parts is a key weakness for OEMs, which provides third parties with an opportunity to gain further share unless the OEMs improve their supply and logistics structures. - After-sales equipment support preferences show over half (53%) of respondents want regular input from their manufacturer, whilst 35% prefer to outsource support work, the largest share of any mining region. - Service contract preferences show miners favor operation and maintenance contracts (40%) ahead of the simpler maintenance-only contract (36%), while life cycle management is the least preferred but still favoured by 22% of respondents. - Opportunities for life cycle management services are greatest within Peru and Brazil, and for the base metals and iron ore industries.
