Research and Markets has announced the addition of "Coal Mining Market in Asia Pacific to 2020 - New Coal-Fired Power Plants to Enhance Regional Coal Production over the Forecast Period" to their offering.
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to reign supreme as the leading coal-producing region in the future, helped along by China’s impressive coal reserves, according to a new report by natural resources intelligence expert GBI Research.
This new report states that China is Asia’s main coal-producing force, not only being the largest coal-producing country in the Asia-Pacific region, but also the largest in the world.
The region’s coal industry comprises China, India, Australia, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Vietnam and New Zealand. China contributed 68% towards the region’s total coal production in 2011. In contrast to China’s colossal production, 2011 saw India offer a 13% share of regional production, while Australia accounted for an 8.5% share and Indonesia made a 7.2% contribution.
The Asia-Pacific region is rich in coal deposits and has the largest amounts of coal reserves in the world. According to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2011, the Asia-Pacific region had around 292.5 billion metric tons of coal reserves, or 35% of the global coffers, at the end of 2010. During 2011, production reached an estimated 4,866 million metric tons, accounting for 65% of total global coal production in that year. Asia’s total dominance in the industry is emphasized by the fact that Europe, the second largest coal producer in 2011, accounted for a share of just 15%.
This report provides key information and analysis of the Asia Pacific coal mining industry, comprising Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, New Zealand, Thailand and Vietnam. The report covers the industry’s drivers and restraints, production, reserves, consumption, and details of each country’s trade balance (imports and exports).
