Historically, coal demand has been differentiated into four major components: coal demand by utilities; industrial and other retail coal demand; metallurgical coal demand; and export demand for coal. Due to the marked differences in these four sectors, the factors upon which expected consumption depends, and the quantity and quality of available data, each sector was modeled separately. The model described is based upon econometric principles and methodologies. The model is used to forecast the consumption of coal over the next three years. The results indicate an aggregate 4.9 annual growth in demand over 1976 levels.
