Based on the application, the global lignite coal market is segmented as follows:

  • Power Generation
  • Agriculture
  • Others

Lignite Coal Market

On the basis of application, the global lignite coal market can be segmented into power generation, fertilizer and other. In 2015, power generation was the largest application segment and is projected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period. Increasing use of lignite coal as fuel for the generation of electricity is expected to fuel the market growth of the segment. The segment is also anticipated to witness high growth over the forecast period. Increasing energy demand coupled with growing thermal electricity generation capacity across key geographies of the world is projected to fuel the growth of the segment during the forecast -period. Lignite also find application in cultivation and distribution of biological control microbes that suppress plant disease causing microbes. Increasing application of the lignite in preparation of agriculture industry is anticipated to drive the growth of agriculture segment over the forecast period (2017-2025).

For the purpose of this study, the global lignite coal market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Lignite Coal Market

On the basis of geography, global lignite coal market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. In 2015, Europe accounted for the largest share in global lignite coal and is projected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. High production of lignite coal coupled with increasing use of lignite coal especially in Germany, Greece, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic and Serbia is anticipated to drive the market growth in Europe. Region is anticipated to witness robust growth in the demand for lignite coal during the forecast period. Followed by it, Asia Pacific stood at second position accounted for significant share in the global lignite coal market in 2015. Increasing production of lignite coal in India and Australia coupled with high demand from thermal power plants coupled with robust demand for electricity especially in India is anticipated to drive the demand for the lignite coal in the region. Further, favorable regulatory policies due to growing inclination towards self-sufficiency especially in India is anticipated to drive the market growth in the region. Region is projected to be the fastest growing market among regions in global lignite coal market during the forecast period (2017-2025).
