China coal industry experienced a cyclical downturn from 2012, and domestic coalminers struggled against serious excess capacity and price drop. Chinese government embarked on the supply-side reform from 2016, dramatically reversing thermal coal market with a result of soaring prices and surging imports. China will continue the supply-side reform in 2016-20, when small and outdated capacities in coal, power, steel and cement will be eliminated. Amid expected “L”-shape growth of Chinese economy, what the prospect of thermal coal market would be is especially worth of attention.
This report will review China thermal coal market from supply, demand, import & export, prices and logistics, and make a forecast for 2019-2023 in economic growth, coal industry policies, thermal coal capacity and consumption of downstream sectors.
