Thermal coal prices show a "V-pattern" trend in 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic hits China and the world. On the supply side, investigations on coal-related corruption and illegal activities in the past two decades in Inner Mongolia restrict coal production. Amid structural supply imbalance at ports, coal prices enter the "red zone".In the fourth quarter, as supply guarantee task is prioritized in the winter season, policies target on easing import coal curbs in specific regions and accelerating capacity release in main producing areas, mitigating the supply tightness. The policy fundamentals focus on ensuring safe production, strengthening environmental protection and combating air pollution, controlling coal imports and shifting roadway logistics to railway transportation, with an aim to stabilize coal prices in the "green zone".


As approaching the end of 2020, Fenwei is timely releasing “2020 China Thermal Coal Market Study and 2021 Outlook”, to review and forecast important policies affecting coal industry development and market operation, and also provide detailed analysis and forecast for 2021 from the perspectives of macro and industrial environments, demand, supply, price, logistics, import & export, etc.
