Thermal coal is a special class of coal used in the generation of power and is also called steam coal. This bituminous variety of coal is sometimes called boiler coal because of its extensive use in boilers and furnaces. In boilers and furnaces, it is used to produce steam that aids in the generation of electricity. This highly heterogeneous material is used in the iron making process and in various industries which are large consumers of electric power like cement, chemical, paper and masonry. The quality of thermal coal and its properties has a great bearing on the efficiency and reliability of a furnace and implicitly affects the costs involved in operating the furnace, waste disposal and pollution control. Thermal coal is not an environment-friendly option due to the emission of pollutants.
Increasing population and rising demands for electric energy will be major drivers for the growth of this market. Rapid urbanisation and the growing number of industries leading to increased construction activities will enhance the growth of this market. Electric energy has been a ubiquitous source of power and the demand for thermal coal is expected to grow at an alarming rate until alternative energy solutions based on renewables become a norm. The thermal coal market is experiencing a squeeze during the COVID-19 pandemic due to reduced production and the inability to meet the demands of the global market. The major challenge faced by the thermal coal market is its effect on the environment and global warming.
