Amid slowing economic growth in 2019, thermal coal consumption growth keeps fast in heating, building materials and iron & steel sectors while decelerates in thermal power due to weakening power consumption growth coupled with rising share of clean energy. De-capacity continues advancing, and supply assurance policies continue executing, boosting domestic market to shift from tight balance to loose supply and thermal coal prices to fall to “green zone” in 4Q. Coal policies center on safe production, air pollution treatment, regulating imports and promoting railway transport. Generally, coal industry runs stable in 2019. 

Fenwei Energy is timely releasing the study report at year end, to review important policies affecting coal industry and market operation, and provide 2020 forecast from macro and industrial environments, demand, supply, price, logistics, import & export, etc.
