• The Metal & Metallurgy industry is one of the most important sectors in the Indian economy. The rise in infrastructure development and automotive production are driving growth in the metals and mining sector in India. India produces 95 minerals– 4 fuel-related minerals, 10 metallic minerals, 23 non-metallic minerals, 3 atomic minerals and 55 minor minerals.
  • India holds a fair advantage in cost of production and conversion costs in steel and alumina. Also, the growth in the power and cement industries are aiding the metals and mining sector. Central ministry reports suggest, demand for iron and steel is set to continue, given the strong growth expectations for the residential and commercial building industry.
  • As per the latest estimates, India is the 3rd largest producer of coal. Coal production stood at 676.51 million tons in FY18. India has the 5th largest estimated coal reserves in the world, standing at 308.802 billion tons in FY16.
  • India ranks 4th in terms of iron ore production globally. In FY18, production of iron ore stood at 210 million tons. It also helps, with the fact, that India holds almost 8 per cent of the world's deposits of iron ore.
  • Since March onwards, Indian economy has been on a roller coaster ride, from strictest lockdown in March to reopening of most of the business activities now. While, India's GDP have declined by 23.9% in Q1 FY21 and expected to register another fall in Q2, the current recovery trends indicate a better economic activity in H2 and normalization of economic conditions by end of FY21. Continuation of current recovery trend is expected to compensate the drop in steel consumption witnessed in H1 FY21 to some extent. India's steel demand is expected to record a consumption of ~83-85 Mnt in FY21 as against 100.2 Mnt in FY20.
  • The size of the Indian copper industry is around 6.6 lakh tons. India has emerged as a net exporter of copper from the status of being a net importer on account of this rising production. During February, 2018 the production of copper ore was 3.42 lakh tons.
  • According to the Ministry of Mines, India has the 7th largest bauxite reserves- around 2,908.85 million tons as of FY17. Infrastructure projects continue to provide lucrative business opportunities for steel, zinc and aluminium producers. Aluminium production stood at 1.60 million metric tons during Apr-Sept 2017 and is forecasted to grow to 3.33 million tons in FY20.
  • Under the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act of 1957, FDI up to 100% under automatic route is allowed for the mining and exploration of metal and non- metal ores including diamond, gold, silver and precious ores.
  • Industry experts and economic observers are of the opinion that there is a significant scope for new mining capacities in iron ore, bauxite and coal and considerable opportunities for future discoveries of subsurface deposits. With further relaxation of limitations and enumerating new policies, the future of the Metal and Metallurgical industry seems to be on a firm footing.


  • Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing the 5th Edition of Metal and Metallurgy Expo 2021 – An International Exhibition and Conference to be held from 25 February - 24 March, 2021 on CII Hive, Virtual Platform.
  • The exhibition with a focus on the latest development in metal and metallurgical industry will be an excellent platform for the Indian and international companies to showcase their state-of-the-art products and services.
