Global Coking Coal Trade Flow in 2022 (Supplier Countries)
28, Jan 2023
Australia was the largest coking coal exporter in CY22, although its share in global exports fell by 8% compared to 2021 due to bad weather. The US and Canada emerged as an alternative to Australian coal due to supply disruptions. Russia emerged as the second largest exporter with 47 mnt, an increase of 48% y-o-y. After sanctions were imposed by the European countries on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine, the country started exporting coal at cheaper prices to Asian countries like China and India, resulting in a hike in export volumes.
