Report summary

With stringent environmental policies and weak economic conditions cracks are appearing in Chinese coal markets. Owing to a lack of real demand growth in 2014 the oversupply situation worsened and domestic coal prices fell to multi year lows. As a result domestic coal producers are struggling to survive. 2015 will not be any better.
