Australia Set To Retain Its Mantle As Top Met Coal Exporter

The federal government's March Resources and Energy Quarterly stated the value of Australia's metallurgical coal exports reached a record high for a second consecutive year in 2018-19.

Export earnings increased to $44 billion in real terms, driven by high prices and, to a lesser extent, growing export volumes.

Metallurgical coal export earnings are projected to decline in real terms to $35 billion in 2021-22, as prices ease, before recovering to $38 billion in 2024-25.
