Global coal: Key themes to watch in 2014

Report summary

The global coal sector had a tough time in 2013: low prices drove low margins and a strong focus on cost control. We anticipate more of the same in 2014, as operators continue to face a difficult environment. Here we outline seven key themes that could shape the year ahead, and assess potential risks to our forecast.

Table of contents

  • China to dominate global pricing
  • US exports to slip; Australian growth to slow
  • Fiscal changes creating uncertainty
  • Cost control continues, but with less potential
  • Key projects must see progress in 2014
  • Non-core divestments and distressed sellers could define the M&A market
  • Infrastructure development remains crucial
