The total mineral production in India has been growing strongly over the last few years and was valued at INR 2.01 tr in 2010-11. In the same year, mining industry’s contribution accounted for 2.26% of the country’s GDP. Rising demand from various sectors and high scope for mining exploration will provide strong growth avenues to the mining industry. Increasing role of the government to support mining activities in India and growing investment potential of the sector will also drive the industry.
The report begins with the market overview section that gives an insight into the global mining scenario and the total world exploration budget. The countrywise and sectorwise share of the global mining exploration budget is also included. The overview of the mining industry in India along with the growth in mineral production and share of minerals is provided. The share of mineral production, both statewise and sectorwise follows next. It moves on to provide insights into the mining scenario in India including the number of mines, along with the economic impact of mining and its contribution to the total GDP in India. The status of mineral reserves in India and the quality of minerals in India is also included in this section. Additionally, mineral exports and imports of India have also been covered, both in terms of value and volume.

This is followed by a section on the mining scenario in India which is split into two parts, the first part consisting of the mining and metal scenario beginning with a geographical distribution of selected minerals in different parts of the country. The section proceeds with an overview, various exploration activities and future outlook of minerals such as bauxite, coal, copper, gold, iron ore, mica, petroleum and natural gas, silver, and zinc. The production in terms of value and volume, along with the exports and imports of each mineral is also provided in this section. The second part of the section gives a brief outlook of the various minerals and their performance indicators across the states of Andhra Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Orissa and Rajasthan.
An analysis of the drivers and challenges explains the factors leading to the growth of the industry including abundant mineral reserves, ample exploration opportunities which can be tapped by players, increasing investment potential, growing demand from other sectors and government concessions. The key challenges identified are lack of mining infrastructure, lack of support to exploration activities and environmental degradation.
The government regulations have been highlighted and include legislation framework, Ministry of Mines, National Mineral Policy 2008, mineral concessions and FDI policy. Rise in illegal mining activities have been cover
