World of Metal - Opportunities yet to be tapped

Thursday, Jul 30, 2015

From a negative growth in 2012-13, the mining sector has revived to register a growth of 2.3% in 2014-15, still far lower than its potential and in comparison with growth in other sectors of the economy. - Jasmeet Wadehra - General Counsel, International Paper - India

There is a huge opportunity yet to be tapped which can yield good results if the focus of government policy is to facilitate investments, improve infrastructure and remove bureaucratic roadblocks towards the development of the mining sector.

India is a country naturally endowed with rich mineral resources. It is the largest producer of mica, second largest in chromites production, third largest in coal and lignite, second largest in barites, fourth largest in iron ore, fifth largest in bauxite and crude steel and eighth largest in the world in aluminium. India accounts for 12% of the world's known and economically available thorium. India is also the world's third largest producer of coal, which is consumed mainly for power sector and provides for energy requirements of industries like cement, fertiliser, chemical and paper.
