Coking Coal Price Outlook

Australian coking coal prices regained some ground in recent weeks, having plummeted in November on the back of weaker Chinese demand. On 14 January, the commodity traded at USD 404 per metric ton, which was up 18.5% from the same day of the previous month. Moreover, the price was 15.1% higher on a year-to-date basis and was up 276.7% from the same day last year. Coking coal prices increased over the last month on Indonesia’s decision to ban coal exports in January. The move was made due to concerns over domestic shortages of the fuel. Moreover, although Australia continues to be hit by China’s unofficial import ban on its coal, demand has remained robust as the country has found alternative export destinations, such as India, Japan and Taiwan.
