Report summary

In 2014 thermal and metallurgical costs declined 15% and 19% respectively with around a third of the reduction due to the lower A$ exchange rate. In 2015 we expect further cost reductionhowever margins remain under significant pressure at less than US$10/tonne. Margin pressure means producers will continue to search for cost reductions however our analysis suggests that further significant cost cuts from existing capacity will be harder to achieve.
