Nationwide lockdowns has disrupted the coal industry, with decline in Indian coal production and coal imports due to lack of demand
The lockdown imposed across the various countries due to novel COVID-19 outbreak has had a cascading effect on the coal sector. There was a significant drop in India’s coal import volumes due to both demand and supply side factors. The India’s coal import in March stood at 15.74 million tonne, which means a decline by 27.5% in comparison to last year. The major reason for the decline in coal imports is due to restrictions imposed at various ports in the wake of coronavirus outbreak in the country and also due to the declining demand of the thermal power plants as the renewable plants are given must run status. Coal India's daily average production in April has also halved from March and is down 11.3% versus April 2019, the world's largest coal miner produced an average of 1.34 million tonnes during the first 22 days of April, which less than per day production of April 2019 i.e 1.51 million tonnes per day. Electricity consumption has fallen 24.3 per cent compared with last year during the nationwide shutdown creating record high fuel stocks at utilities and prompting many power plants to avoid buying more coal.
