Coal Mining Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Coal mining removes coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and since the 1880s through today is widely used electricity generation. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production.

Methods of coal extraction include surface mining, area mining, contour mining, mountaintop removal mining, room and pillar mining, and underground mining.

Coal is mined commercially in over 50 countries. Over 7,036 Mt/yr of hard coal is currently produced, a substantial increase over the past 25 years.
