The global coal industry is expected to offer good growth opportunities for industry players as overall revenue is estimated to reach approximately $1,037 billion by 2018. The industry is fragmented with the top 10 players controlling a relatively small percentage of the market. The coal industry is highly capital intensive with limited product differentiation. Improvements in technologies that convert of coal to liquid, lower carbon emissions, and refining coal for more efficient usage are among the industry’s unmet needs.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the coal industry and presents its findings in “Global Coal Industry 2013-2018: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.” The industry, which is concentrated with high economies of scale, is highly regulated, as it needs to meet stringent government regulations.
The report studies the major challenges of the industry. Global unemployment rates increased because of the global economic meltdown and the Euro zone crisis, which affected the global consumption rate.

The report focuses on the industry’s key drivers. Coal Liquefaction and Gasification Technology and Carbon Capture & Storage/Sequestration (CCS) are the emerging trends that are likely to bring the sustainability that can fulfill growing demand in the industry. Coal’s availability in abundance, combined with being a less expensive fuel compared to other sources, will keep it as a popular fuel for at least the next couple of decades.

This industry research report is intended to provide industry leaders with an overview of the global coal industry. The report provides up-to-date information on the market share, profit margins, capabilities, and strategies of the leading players in the industry. The report helps current suppliers realistically assess their capabilities and strategies vis-a-vis leading competitors.
