China Steam Coal Annual Report

Is the golden age of the Chinese coal industry coming to an end?

China now accounts for over half of the world’s trading volume in coal. Output levels had reached 3.65bn tonnes by 2012 and apparent consumption reached 3.93bn tonnes – over half the global total. China’s coal imports in the same period were a quarter of the world’s trading volume. But then coal prices started to drop and have continued falling during 2013 with no sign of a recovery.

Domestic market players, analysts and executives are looking for answers to key questions. Will the steam coal oversupply continue to affect prices, or has the turning point come? What are the plans for the thermal power industry? How will China’s importers deal with the squeeze of domestic products? What are the price trends and supply and demand patterns for steam coal in the future?

It provides a clear overview of China’s steam coal, coking coal and anthracite market and a ranking and profit analysis of China’s steam coal importers.
