Coal is used to generate more than thirty-percent of the world's electricity. In addition to being a key fuel, it is also used in a wide range of industrial applications across many different industries. In recent years, low natural gas prices - along with the high demand for coal across Asia and Europe - have created a shift in the industry and present new opportunities in the global coal markets. With a focus on coal imports and exports, the World Coal Tradewall map presents the primary components of the dynamic global coal industry in striking detail.
Starting with the coal source region, this map helps one understand where coal originates and where it is consumed. Coal trade routes illustrate the flow of coal transported from one country (or region) to another. Major coal ports show where large shipments of coal are exported or imported into a country and major steel mills (shown in China, the US and Europe) illustrate one of the primary industrial consumers of coking coal. Finally, countries are colored by average coal consumption, making this an essential reference for all those interested in the global coal trade market.
