India is well recognized as a well-endowed minerals and metals resource in the world. India ranks 4th among mineral producing countries after China, US and Russia. However, India ranks 8th on the basis of value of mineral production.
Mining sector in India contributes to 2% of GDP in 2012-13, which is declined from 2.3% of 2009-10, 3% of 1999-2000 and 3.4% of 1992-93. India produces around 88 types of minerals including 4 fuel minerals, 10 metallic, 47 non-metallic, 3 atomic and 24 minor minerals.
The reason for the low contribution of mining to Indian economy is its underdeveloped nature. Despite the underdeveloped nature of its mining sector India is 2nd biggest producer of Steel, Barite and Chromite and the 3rd largest producer of Coal and Limestone in the world. These statistics would improve even further when foreign investments start coming in which at present are quite low. To put things in perspective India holds a percent of the world’s population and a massive 20% of the total minerals in the world. But despite little foreign investment India has put capital into the mining sector and managed to become self-sufficient in various essential commodities like steel. But becoming self-sufficient is a very small achievement for a country which possesses such massive mineral deposits.
Government policies is the biggest problem which mining industry is facing from a long time. Mining projects across the country remain stuck owing to environmental, regulatory and land acquisition issues. High borrowing cost is also a factor responsible for problems in mining industry. With recent decline in Inflation and reduction of repo rate in India, borrowing is becoming easy and the issue is looking to get settled in few months.
The cost of investment would be low due to the commodity slump being seen around the world. Hence this sector presents a golden opportunity for companies around the world. The Mining industry in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% till 2020.
