Global Coal Mining

Global Coal Mining

Coal continues to play a vital role in global electricity generation markets and, consequently, the industry has recovered strongly from the global recession. While the Global Coal Mining industry's performance suffered during the recession, it rebounded strongly in 2010 and 2011. Despite environmental concerns about coal's high carbon content, countries still heavily rely on coal to provide electricity to their populations. In the coming years, the worldwide output of coal is expected to continue expanding in response to growing demand from electricity generators and steel producers.

This industry mines various types of coal. Most coal mines consist of bituminous coal or anthracite (types of black coal), but operators may also mine lignite (brown coal). Mining occurs underground and in surface pits. Industry enterprises may also develop coal mine sites and prepare the coal for sale by washing, screening and sizing it.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
