India coal short-term outlook August 2021: Will second pandemic wave strangle growth in power and steel sector?

Report summary

Growth momentum built up in India was lost in Q2 2021 due to second wave of the pandemic. State level restrictions to control coronavirus spread, impacted overall growth of the country. The supply-demand disparity led to huge stock levels of coal at mine sites. Steel mills diverted focus to steel exports due to subdued domestic demand. Surge in coal prices added more risks to coal imports. Will the second pandemic wave have more cascading impact on Indian power and steel sector compared to first wave? Read on to find out more about these issues and our forecast for the Indian coal market.
