METS & Australian Coal Industry 2018 to 2027

A Decade of Growth will be Sustained by China, India and Southeast Asia Demand
IEA Southeast Asia Energy Outlook, October 2017 postulates that Australian Coal Exports will grow by 15% in the next 25 years to over 450Mtpa.
We examine the Impact of Structural Changes in China and India which together with the rapid expansion of coal-fired power capacity in Southeast Asia will drive demand higher in markets including Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
Existing spare coal chain capacity will lead to continued export growth from Australia over the coming decade from brownfield expansions and new projects in NSW and Queensland which will create business opportunities for METS firms.
