About This Report


Black coal is a key input into steelmaking and energy generation. While black coal deposits are found all over the world, Australia is one of the world's lowest cost producers and is a major black coal exporter. Domestic reserves are high-grade, economic to access and in surplus to domestic requirements. As a result, exports account for a large share of total industry revenue, while imports are negligible as domestic demand for black coal falls well below total local production levels.

Over the past five years, the Black Coal Mining industry has come under pressure from global trends in coal demand and domestic production hurdles.

Companies in the industry primarily mine black coal using open-cut and underground mining methods. Mining operations include coal extraction and any associated activities such as coal washing and crushing.

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