India's mining sector will experience solid growth, primarily boosted by the country's positive reforms and vast mineral reserves. Despite this, the sector will continue to face challenges due to the country's inadequate operating environment, mining royalties and low metals prices will prevent India from reaching its full growth potential.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends
- Although India holds one of the world's largest coal reserves and has significant production growth potential, the country will continue to suffer from a persistent coal deficit over the coming years. Even though the government has made great progress in improving coal mine production and coal off-take, power shortages and strikes by coal unions highlight the need for the government to implement effective reforms. India's coal sector is rife with theft and corruption and hampered by primitive mining techniques. Additionally, significant amounts of coal deposits are located in protected forests or conflictladen tribal lands, making it extremely difficult to increase production.
