Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zgnkwl/analyzing_the) has announced the addition of the "Analyzing the Global Coal & Consumable Fuels Industry" report to their offering.
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. It is the largest single source of fuel for the generation of electricity world-wide, as well as the largest world-wide source of carbon dioxide emissions, slightly ahead of petroleum and about double that of natural gas. Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground mining or open pit mining.
Coal consumption is projected to grow at about 2.5% per year over the next 20 years, based on US Department of Energy forecasts.
An analysis of the global coal industry in its research offering Analyzing the Global Coal & Consumable Fuels Industry. The global coal and consumable fuels market can be defined as revenues due to the sale of coal for industry and power generation. This research report takes a look at the market, analyzing market statistics, industry volume, value, segmentation, forecast, among other fields.
