Australian Coal Exports by Destination
The 0.7 Mt year-on-year increase in Australian coking coal exports to 14.5 Mt in October featured a 1.2 Mt rise in shipments in India to a seven-month high of 5.1 Mt, data from IHS reveal. Meanwhile, exports to Japan (3.1 Mt) and Europe (1.4 Mt) also climbed from year-ago levels.
By contrast, Australian steam coal exports posted a 1.1 Mt annual fall in October to reach 16.3 Mt. The drop reflects sharp declines in shipments to South Korea (-2.5 Mt to 1.5 Mt) and Vietnam (-0.9 Mt to 0.3 Mt).
No Australian coking or steam coal cargoes to China were reported.
