NOIDA, India ( May 21, 2012 - A new research report by RNCOS, "Indian Coal Industry Forecast to 2013", says that coal powers more than half of India's electricity plants and demand for this commodity is expected to rise sharply as the one of the largest Asian economy is expanding rapidly. With the growing capacity of steel production, requirement of coking coal is booming in the country. Lack of availability of coking coal in the country forces the steel producers to opt for imports to fulfill the demand.Therefore, the coal imports are anticipated to reach 121 Million Metric Tons in 2013-14.

Coking coal, which is mainly consumed by steel industry is imported from Australia, whereas non-coking coal consumed by power and cement plants is imported from Indonesia and South Africa. However, non-coking coal accounts for the major share in overall coal production in the country. Non-coking coal produced in India is mainly of Grade E, F, and G types that contain high moisture content.
