India Stares Down the Newest Risk to Manufacturing

Since mid-August, India has been facing a shortage of coal after demand for power rose in the manufacturing sector following a deadly second COVID-19 wave.  

With such low reserves, the country has issued directives to send a large share of coal to critical sectors like power thermal plants to prevent power outages, while reducing capacity in other industries. As winter season approaches, coal prices are likely to increase further, subsequently affecting prices of iron, steel, and aluminum in production costs in the coming months.
