Coal Import in China to 2023 - Import Volume Will Continue to Grow from 2019 to 2023, but Growth Rate May be Limited - ResearchAndMarkets.com

January 28, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 28, 2019--The “Research Report on Coal Import in China, 2019-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

China is the largest coal producer and consumer. The huge coal consumption in China encourages foreign coal producers to expand their production capacity. In addition, overseas coal mines are mostly opencast ones, which makes it easy to increase production.

However, coal production in China is restricted by environmental protection policies and other factors. In recent years, some small and medium-sized coal mines had to cut or even stop production because their environmental protection facilities failed to meet standards.

Meanwhile, the rising mining costs have made the coal prices in China higher than the international coal prices. For example, in 2017, the average price of imported steam coal was only 429 CNY/ton, about 12% lower than that of domestic steam coal.

It is expected that the import volume of coal in China will continue to grow from 2019 to 2023 but the growth rate may be limited. On one hand, imported coal can stabilize the coal prices in China and improve the operation of the major downstream industries of coal.

On the other hand, a large number of coal imports will certainly impact China’s coal mining industry. Therefore, the Chinese government will issue policies to regulate and rationalize coal imports.
