Report summary

Coal market participants are finally able to draw a deep breath as 2016 draws to a close. The winter of 2015/2016 marked the nadir of US coal production since the 1970s with October to May coal generation dropping 23% from the previous year and a staggering 46% from the peak for this period in 2007/2008. A combination of events contributed to this recent dramatic decline in coal demand including: record mild winter temperatures for 2015/2016 decreasing demand from China and most critically low natural gas prices.
