Key Highlights

  • Global coal production is dominated by six countries – China, the US, India, Australia, Indonesia and Russia – which together accounted for 78.4% of global production in 2015.
  • China was the largest producer, with 3.5Bnt, followed by the US with 835.8 million tonnes (Mt), India with 668.0Mt, Australia with 459.9Mt, Indonesia with 425.0Mt, and Russia with 374.8Mt.
  • Global coal consumption was an estimated 7.6Bnt in 2015, down by 39.3Mt, or 0.5% from 2014. This was mainly a result of falls in consumption in China and the US, of 3.1% and 6.6% from 2014 respectively.
