Glowing embers: Revenue will begin to recover moving forward following years of falling coal prices

Abstract

Coal Mining in the US

The Coal Mining industry has been volatile in recent years, and revenue has declined over the five years to 2017 as a result. The prices of thermal and metallurgical coal surged just prior to the five-year period, and have continually dropped since, inhibiting industry growth. Furthermore, the emergence of natural gas as a substitute for coal in electricity generation, a slowing Chinese economy and relatively mild winters in the United States have reduced demand for coal and contributed to price volatility over the past five years. Over the next five years, however, the industry is expected to return to slow growth, as slowing economic growth in major global markets (e.g. China) places downward pressure on product prices. While natural gas will continue to erode coal demand over the five years to 2022, the consumption of electric power is projected to expand and demand from emerging economies will continue, offering some relief to industry operators.


Operators in this industry mine various types of coal. This will often occur either underground or in surface pits. Most coal mines consist of bituminous coal or anthracite (types of black coal), but companies might also excavate lignite (brown coal). Industry operators also develop coal mine sites and prepare the coal for sale by washing, screening and sizing the material.


This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
