About This Report


Australia has almost one-quarter of the world's brown coal reserves, all of which are located in Victoria (90% in the Latrobe Valley). Virtually all Australia's brown coal output is used to generate electricity in power stations located close to the coalmines. Brown coal output in 2012-13 is expected to be about 60.3 million tonnes, compared with about 66 million tonnes in 2007-08.

The Brown Coal Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of about $920 million in 2012-13, compared with $988.7 million in 2007-887, yielding an annualised fall of 1.4%. Since brown coal is not exported or imported, the size of the domestic market is also equal to $920.0 million.

Firms in this industry mine brown coal.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
