Coking Coal Price Outlook

Coking coal prices have been on the rise lately and, on 8 March, traded at USD 213 per metric ton, which was up 6.3% from the same day last month. However, the price was 0.5% lower on a year-to-date basis and was down 8.3% from the same day last year. Particularly, prices rose following an expected supply shortage in March–April. Moreover, despite lower growth expectations for China and an ongoing environmental crackdown in the country, Chinese buyers of Australian coking coal increased their purchasing activity in recent weeks after the Lunar New Year. This followed increased policy clarity from Chinese authorities, who are limiting, rather than prohibiting, coal imports on environmental grounds.
