Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “2015-2030 China Thermal Coal Cost Status and Mid and Long Term Forecast” report to their offering.

Over the recent years, while China’s economic growth has been slowing down as result of economic restructuring, its coal production capacity has kept expanding, which has resulted in supply glut and price downturn, and such unfavorable situation is prone to linger on for a long time. In the context of a bearish coal market, the cost issue has stood out, because reduction of cost is the predominant means to increase profit, but it is hard to be attained, since cost growth seems like an inevitable trend, owing to deepening mining depth, elevating ground temperature and ground pressure of coalmines, increasing gas inrush and water inrush, lagging trans-provincial transport conditions and more rigid requirements on safety production and environmental protection.

Being aware of the importance of cost for domestic industry, we have devoted ourselves to coal cost study since 2010. We collect data through field trips and official publications. To date, we have gathered cost data about 6,000-plus coalmines in 198 mining areas of 26 provinces. On this basis, we organize experts and analysts to produce a series of cost study reports which are split by thermal coal, coking coal and PCI coal.

This China Thermal Coal Cost Forecast 2014-2030 (with washing cost omitted because of low washing rate of thermal coal), which involves analysis and forecast of production cost, transport cost and all-in cost in both texts and vivid graphs and curves, there are also competitiveness comparisons of different mining areas. Though reading this report, all readers – coal miners or users, researchers or investors – will gain a profound insight in China thermal coal cost and find it easier to make scientific and reasonably production, procurement or investment decisions.
