Report summary

Now that 2015 has passed into history we can reflect on a tumultuous year in coal markets; a year which started with additional restrictions on the import of coal into China and ended with the first global agreement to control global temperature increases. The factors weighing on demand and prices in 2015 look set to continue through 2016 which will offer little hope of a major turnaround for the coal market.
