Coking Coal Price Outlook

Prices for coking coal have been on a general downward slope since early December amid fears of economic headwinds in China affecting demand. On 11 January, coking coal traded at USD 200 per metric ton, which was 12.0% lower than on the same day last month. The price was down 6.6% on a year-to-date basis and was 23.2% lower than on the same day last year. Economic growth slowed in China in the third quarter of 2018 and recent data suggested that in December the manufacturing sector entered contraction for the first time in nearly two years. China is the largest consumer of coking coal in the world, so a slowing domestic economy has stoked concerns over coking coal demand and likely weighed on prices in recent weeks.
