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).
