Cost competitiveness of coal delivered to coastal China


Cost competitiveness of coal delivered to coastal China

Report summary

Our cost curve for global contestable thermal coal supply shows imports are considerably lower cost than Chinese domestic production. For metallurgical coal, Chinese supply features at both ends of the delivered cost curve. Australia and Canada's position in the first half of the cost curve means these sources of supply should still be able to compete into China despite the current weak market.
