2014-02-20 20:57:03 - Analyzing the Global Coal Industry - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Coal is a fossil fuel formed in ecosystems where plant remains were saved by water and mud from oxidization and biodegradation. Coal is a readily combustible black or brownish-black rock. It is a sedimentary rock, but the harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rocks because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. It is composed primarily of carbon along with assorted other elements, including sulfur.
Coal consumption is projected to grow at about 2.5% per year over the next 20 years.
We present an analysis of the global coal industry in its research offering "Analyzing the Global Coal Industry". The Our research report takes a look at the market, analyzing market statistics based on production and
consumption statistics that are further broken down by types of coal such as hard coal, brown coal, metallurgical coal, and thermal coal. Impact of the recession on major coal players and in countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Turkey and the US is analyzed in depth.
Consolidation in the global coal industry is also analyzed and a section is dedicated to understanding coal mining and the hazards associated with it. We also take a look at understanding coal-based electricity generation through pulverized coal combustion.
