In 2017, China's micro-economy has been growing steadily in a rising momentum, and coal consumptions in main industries have kept rising. Mines resumed 330 working days, and national supply picked up from low position. Coal market prices ran in high position, and industrial profitability improved notably. As approaching the end of this year, Fenwei is timely releasing 2017 China Thermal Coal Market Analysis and 2018 Forecast, interpreting the key policies and forecasting policy evolutions in 2018, conducting a detailed analysis of the operation of thermal coal market in 2017 and also presenting an explicit anticipation of coal market in 2018. Based on coal and related industrial databases after many-year accumulation of Fenwei Energy and compiled by experts in coal industry, the report carried out a deep analysis and forecast into coal market, integrating policy research, data model, quantity analysis and experts' experiences.
