LONDON – India took up the fifth position after the USA, Russia, China and Australia, with proved coal reserves of 60.6 billion tonnes as of 2014, capturing 6.8% of worldwide reserves. Bituminous and anthracite grabbed 92.5%, or 56.1 billion tonnes, whilst sub-bituminous and lignite grades accounted for the remaining 7.5%, or 4.5 billion tonnes.

As of 2014, India was the world’s third-largest coal producer with 618.5 million tonnes, up 1.4% from the 610 million tonnes registered in 2013. India’s coal consumption stood at 780.7 million tonnes in 2014, a 6% increase from 736.5 million tonnes recorded in 2013. This hike was primarily fuelled by the growing demand from the power industry, which was the dominant consumer in 2014.

In spite of having one of the globe’s largest coal reserves, India still relies on imported coal as demand surpasses supply. Coal imports surged to 170 million tonnes in 2014, with much of it coming from Australia, Indonesia and South Africa.

The Singareni Collieries Company Ltd. and Coal India Ltd are the dominant companies operating in the industry.
