Coal is the most used fossil fuel in today's world. Even though there are many renewable options also available today, coal remains the most widely used fuel used for electricity generation in both developed and emerging economies.

The coal industry is a highly competitive market and there are several players that have been operating in the industry for many years now. Worldwide, the coal industry is growing at a fast pace, in spite of the various environmental concerns that faces the future of the industry.

In order to understand the profitability and the dynamics of competitive structure of the global coal industry, Taiyou Research presents a Porter's Five Forces Analysis of the Global Coal Industry.

Michael Porter's Five Forces Model is one of the most effective analytical model for understanding and analyzing the competitive landscape in an industry. The model analyzes the bargaining power of buyers and suppliers; the competitive rivalry in the industry; the threat of new entrants and the threat of substitutes for the particular industry – in this case, coal faces the threat of substitution from the various renewable energy sources that are fast becoming popular today.

In our report, apart from the Porter’s Five Forces Model Analysis of the industry, we also analyze the basics of coal, including the various uses, types of coal, the important role coal plays in the global energy mix in today’s world, and many other factors impacting the global coal industry.

We also profile the global coal industry through an industry definition, industry statistics, market value and volume analysis, coal production and consumption statistics, and much more.

A country-wise industry outlook concludes this analysis of the global coal industry in a Porter's Five Forces framework.
