Cheap Chinese coke: A new threat to coking coal exports

Report summary

Chinese coke exports hit an annualised rate of around 8 Mt year-to-date June, over twice the level exported in 2013 and over 7 Mt more than 2012.  Lower resultant coke prices are encouraging Pacific basin steel makers to increase coke imports at the expense of coking coal; Japanese and Indian coke imports have risen by a factor of 3 and 1.6 respectively this year.  Surging demand for coke imports is exacerbating the problems for coking coal exporters in an already weak demand environment.
