Report summary

In this insight, we have analysed supply, demand and costs of typical JPU-type supply and present a forecast of JPU prices. The premium will stay high in the short-term: global oversupply persists but for JPU-type supply, availability is decreasing. The premium declines over the mid-term as supply increases from new projects with high quality bituminous coal, but increases to almost US$10/t by 2035 (JPU price of US$121/t in real US$2013).
