The report provides top-level market analysis, information and insights on the Indian mining industry, including:
  • A comprehensive breakdown of the Indian mining industry by segments such as coal, metallic minerals and non-metallic minerals
  • Details of top companies active across the Indian mining industry
  • Emerging trends and opportunities in the Indian mining industry
Executive Summary

Domestic demand for resources has led to strong overall growth in India’s mining sector, which is expected to remain robust over the next five years. Demand for electricity and cement has made coal the most valued mineral, offering substantial business opportunities in coal mining, and favorable government policies are encouraging investment in this sector.

India’s “automatic approval” route enables 100% foreign investment in metallic and non-metallic ore mining, and multinational corporations are expected to make significant investments in the Indian mining sector. In particular, India’s relatively low per-capita consumption of steel suggests indicates a huge potential market for the metal, which is expected to encourage investments and the introduction and development of new technologies. Despite the high domestic potential, however, Indian companies are also actively acquiring coal assets in countries such as South Africa, Mozambique, Indonesia, Australia and Zimbabwe.
