In the near term, coal remains to be the hot topic in India.
“We have increased India’s imports for thermal coal from 158 Mt to 164 Mt in 2018 with a further upside risk of 3-4 Mt as coal stocks at Indian power plants and Coal India Limited are at historically low levels. India’s spot market prices, for both coal and power, are expected to remain strong over the coming months as continuous industrial production growth is pushing demand, while supply remains tight,” Wood Mackenzie’s coal principal analyst Pralabh Bhargava said.
