BMI View: India's poor operating environment will continue to impede growth in the mining sector. A domestic shortfall in coal production is unlikely to fade away anytime soon, while growth in iron ore output will be restricted by the government's clampdown on illegal mining.
While growing domestic demand for commodities will encourage state-owned miners to expand production, we believe India's poor operating environment will continue to restrict growth in the mining sector. A spate of bureaucratic and regulatory hurdles will remain major challenges for miners to grapple with over the coming quarters. For instance, the difficulties in securing environmental clearances and land acquisition have led to a series of mining projects being delayed over the past year. Vedanta Resources' bauxite mining project in Odisha was forced to put on hold due to fierce protests by the local community. A bright spot, however, is that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will implement positive reforms to revive economic growth over the medium term. The party's track record of pro-business dealings could bring about an improving operating climate in the mining sector.
