Thus, there is a growing tendency towards alternative sources of energy, such as renewable energy, thermal power plants and other hydroelectric power plants. The low cost of lignite coal is another factor driving demand for the lignite coal market. It is positioned as a low cost increase in merit-order curves competing with hard coal and gas. Lignite is also used in the production of coal-based fertilizers. Further, the development of coal-to-liquid (CTL) technology has broadened the range of applications for lignite coal. This, in turn, is expected to drive demand for lignite coal over the forecast period. However, growing inclination towards clean energy coupled with increasing investment in renewable energy is expected to hamper the growth of lignite coal market during the forecast period (2017-2025).
