Companies in the global coal mining industry are primarily involved in the mining of different types of coal. The global coal mining industry involves all types of mining, may it be underground mining, strip mining, culm bank mining and any other type of surface mining.

Coal is a valuable energy resource in many countries across the world. Both developed as well as emerging economies depend on coal as a source of energy production. The US uses coal primarily for electricity generation, while in China, coal is used for both industrial as well as residential purposes.

With the US, Australia, India, China, and South Africa, being some of the leading producers and consumers of coal, coal is definitely here to stay as a major source of energy. There are many coal mines in these countries and the ensuing environmental fallout of coal is being debated upon worldwide, with many countries having put in place stringent environmental regulations to control the environmental damage that comes from coal mining.

While there have been a lot of new developments in clean coal technologies, one can say for certain that coal, as a source of fuel and energy, is hardly ever going to go out of use.

In this industry scenario, Taiyou Research analyzes the Global Coal Mining Industry.

Divided into five chapters, this report from Taiyou Research is a complete analysis of the global coal mining industry. Here's looking at what Chapter 1 contains.

- An analysis of the global coal market, including industry definition, industry statistics, market value and volume analysis, coal production and consumptions statistics, industry segmentation, the role of coal in providing energy security for a country, and an industry outlook that is segmented according to countries.

- We analyze the global coal industry through a Porter's Five Forces analysis and look at the bargaining power of buyers & suppliers, the competitive rivalry in the industry, the threat of new entrants, and the presence of substitutes, in this scenario the threat from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.

- Environmental impact of coal is analyzed through the impact of both coal mining as well as coal burning. Role of the Kyoto Protocol is discussed along with the environmental regulations in various countries.

In Chapter 2 of the report, we analyze the Global Coal Mining Industry. The chapter includes the following:

- Analysis of the global coal mining industry including an industry definition, market statistics, industry demand, industry concentration and geographic presence, industry segments analysis, market segments, and industry trade.

- An analysis of the global coal mine production, including again an industry definition, market profile, market value & volume analysis, industry segmentation, industry competition, and an industry forecast.

- A look at the industry performance through the analysis of the market, the importance of China, the impact of rising coal prices, the expansion in coal trade, and other factors impacting the performance of the global coal mining industry.

- A life cycle analysis of the industry in included, along with an analysis of the competition in the global coal mining industry.

- Industry characteristic are analyzed in the chapter through a look at industry globalization, high barriers to entry, taxation challenges, industry tariffs, etc.

- Regulatory frameworks in various countries impacting the coal mining industry are analyzed, along with a look at industry costs and expenses.

- We analyze the coal mine production in the following countries in this chapter: Canada, China, UK, and the US. For each country we look at the market profile, market value & volume analysis, industry segmentation, industry competition and an industry outlook.

- An outlook for the global coal mining industry completes this chapter.

Chapter 3 of the report Global Coal Mining Industry analyzes the major players in the global coal mining industry. Major players are analyzed through a company overview, an analysis of the business segments they operate through, their major products & services, a financial analysis, and a SWOT analysis. For some players, we also look at the market performance of each player. We analyze over 40 players in our research offering.

No report on the Global Coal Mining Industry is complete without an analysis of the major coal mines in the world, and in Chapter 4 of the report Global Coal Mining Industry, we analyze some of the major coal mines in the world. Each mine is analyzed through a mine overview, mine location, mine geology, mine operations, mine processes, and an environmental profile of the mine. Over 20 coal mines are analyzed in this chapter.

Concluding the report is Chapter 5, which carries an appendix and a glossary of terms.

This cutting-edge research offering from Taiyou Research is a comprehensive coverage of the global coal mining industry.
