India’s target to all but cease thermal coal imports by the end of this decade is now the logical economic outcome, especially since plants using expensive imported coal are increasingly the high-cost dispatch option. As the second largest importer of thermal coal globally, this is a materially adverse development for thermal coal-export nations.
