Australia Coal Mining to 2025 – Updated with Impact of COVID-19

After a slight increase in 2019, Australia's coal mine production fell by 5.5% to 557.8 million tonnes (Mt) in 2020. In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, several other factors, including bushfires, heavy rainfall, unplanned maintenance, pit sequencing and planned production cuts, affected production in 2020. Although the country’s coal sector witnessed strong demand during the first half of 2020, the second half was restrained with China-Australia trade war resulting in production cuts from key producers. The country’s production over the forecast period (2021-2025) is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5%, to reach 613.5Mt in 2025. Thermal coal production is expected to grow at a 3.2% CAGR, to reach 403.7Mt, while metallurgical coal production is expected to grow at a 4% CAGR to reach 209.8Mt.
