New figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show that the value of the nation’s coal exports rose to a record $66.2bn in 2018. Meanwhile, Viktor Tanevski of Wood Mackenzie forecasts that demand for bituminous thermal coal in the Asia-Pacific region will rise by three million tonnes in 2019. He also expects the price of high-energy Australian thermal coal to recover to $US98 per tonne after testing the $US88 level earlier in 2019.
