Globally, 7.2Bnt of coal was produced in 2017, which was up by 2.6% compared with the previous year. This was due to an increase in production from three of the top-five coal-producing countries: the US, India and China. Furthermore, production from Russia and Indonesia also increased.

Global production is expected to post a forecast-period (2018-2022) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.3%. This will be supported by an increase in production from India, Indonesia, Australia and Russia. Countries such as China and the US are expected to maintain production at current levels.

China, India, the US, Germany and Russia were the top-five coal-consuming countries, accounting for 83% of global consumption during 2017. Global consumption of coal is expected to grow over the forecast period, to reach 7.2Bnt in 2022. This can be attributed to an increase in demand from India and Russia. However, the demand from China and the US is expected to decline during the forecast period, due to measures implemented by the government to reduce dependency on coal for electricity generation.

Coal India Ltd, Glencore Plc, China Shenhua Energy Company Ltd, BHP Billiton Ltd, Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Ltd, Anglo American Plc, Siberian Coal Energy Co., RWE AG, China National Coal Group Corp and Singareni Collieries Co. Ltd are the major coal producers, globally.
