The Industry: opportunities & Threats.

During the Fiscal year 2018-19, The Indias Economy grew at an impressive 8.2 percent in the first quarter i.e 30 June of Financial Year 2018-19 on the back of a strong core performance and a healthy base. This is the highest growth in two years and strongest since the first quarter of Year 2016.

However, India continues to remain the fastest growing major economy in the world in 2018-19, despite a slight moderation in its GDP growth from 7.2 per cent in Year 2017-18 to 6.8 per cent in 2018-19. Indias growth of real GDP has been high with average growth of 7.5 per cent in the last 5 years (2014-15 onwards). The Indian economy grew at 6.8 per cent in 2018-19, thereby experiencing some moderation in growth when compared to the previous year.

The mining and quarrying sector on the other hand has shown a growth rate of 1.3 percent as against previous years growth rate of 5.1 percent and production of Rubber in the world was considered to be very unstable during the last few years. Comparatively, with the world India production of rubber is consistent at the rate of 6% per annum. The Industry is expected to grow at over 8% per annum in this decade.

The Company being trading Company, the activities of the Company can be broadly divided into three business segments viz Coal, Agro Food Products and Synthetic Rubbers.


Industry Outlook:-

Coal plays a vital role in meeting global energy needs and is critical to infrastructure development. 38% of the worlds electricity and 71% of the worlds steel is produced using coal. Coal is a global industry, with coal mined commercially in over 50 countries and used in over 70.

While India has ample domestic thermal coal supplies and its government has expressed a desire to end imports, continued reliance on thermal coal imports appears inevitable for the foreseeable future. First, the countrys planned shift to supercritical and ultra-supercritical power plants after Year 2017 favors continued dependency on high-quality coal imports needed to run those plants. Indian coal, which has high ash content and low calorific value, presents a challenge for efficient functioning of supercritical boilers. Second, Indias infrastructure for transporting coal from inland deposits to its two dozen coastal power stations remains poor. The share of Indias coastal-based power, which operates completely on imported coal, is expected to increase from the current 17% to 23% by 2030. Finally, state support of domestic coal production has historically been weak, and recent reforms have promoted port-to-rail connectivity, effectively paving the way for increased coal imports.

India is said to have coal reserves of up to 300 billion tones. India is expected to import up to 185 million tonnes of thermal coal in 2019, the head of thermal coal at consultancy Wood Mackenzie shared it that about 13 percent higher than its estimate for 2018.India was the worlds second largest producer of coal in 2017, the latest year for which data is available, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). The country produced a tenth of the worlds coal, while China topped the list with 45% of global production. India was also the second largest coal importer, with a 16% share. China accounts for nearly half of global coal consumption, with Indias share at 13%.
