Indian metallurgical coal production - challenges and opportunities

Indian metallurgical coal production - challenges and opportunities

Report summary

Metallurgical coal imports have grown from 30 Mt in 2010 to 47 Mt in 2015 but domestic production remains flat at 8 Mtpa. In this insight, we identify challenges facing the domestic coking coal industry and why it is difficult to rapidly increase production without removing government controls and implementing market pricing. Strong domestic demand is an opportunity to ensure the optimum utilization of coking coal resources.
