CHINA'S COAL IMPORTS FROM INDONESIA DECLINED 16.4% Y-O-Y, TO 80.2 MLN TONNES IN THE FIRST 9 MONTHS OF 2020 - BANCHERO COSTA
Banchero CostaChina's coal imports boomed in 2019,  surprising many who had expected the government would clamp down strictly on shipments.
 
Even this year, with the pandemic hitting hard the world economy, and global demand for coal crashing,  imports to China remained surprisingly resilient, Banchero Costa research said in its latest report.
 
The report further noted that, however, the third quarter of 2020 proved to be much more disappointing  than the rosy first half of the year.
 
In the first 9 months of 2020, China imported 197.8 mln tonnes of coal by sea (including both thermal and coking),  according to vessel tracking data from Refinitiv. This represents a net decline of -2.5% y-o-y compared to the 202.8 mln tonnes imported in the same period of 2019, but is still significantly higher than the 181.1 mln  tonnes  imported in Jan-Sep 2018, and the 178.3 mln tonnes in the same period of 2017.
 
According to the report, things started very well in the first quarter of 2020. In the first 3 months  of  the  year,  China imported 69.4 mln tonnes of coal, which  was  a  +14.8%  increase  on the same period last year. Things were more disappointing in the second quarter of 2020. The country imported 70.4 mln tonnes of coal in the April-June period, essentially flat on the first quarter, and just +1.8% compared to the same period last year. Things went really downhill in the third  quarter.  In  the  July- September period, China imported just 58.0 mln tonnes of coal, which was a sharp -20.8% less than in the same quarter last year.
 
Banchero Costa’s report also noted, China routinely restricts imports of coal to help domestic miners through  a  wider  effort  to  reduce the  fuel  dependency  of  the country.  For  a  nation  that consumes and produces half of the world's  coal,  the  strength  of China's   import   curbs   may   vary based on the competing priorities of the government to protect domestic miners and power plants. In previous years, China’s coal imports tended to taper off in the fourth quarter, as imports reached official or unofficial annual quotas.
 
For import volumes to halt so sharply so early in the year is therefore  worrying,  as  even sharper cutbacks could now be expected in the final quarter. Despite much press coverage of supposed restrictions on Australian coal,  allegedly  a  consequence  of the deteriorating political relations between Australia and China, it is actually  Indonesia  that  has  seen the sharpest fall this year.
 
Banchero Costa  also said in its report that, Indonesia had been the main beneficiary in last year’s increase in China’s demand for coal. In the 12 months of 2019,  China  imported 124.4  mln  tonnes  of  coal  from Indonesia, up +15.1% y-o-y. This year, however, imports from Indonesia declined by a sharp -16.4% y-o-y, to 80.2 mln tonnes in the first 9 months of 2020.
 
Imports from Australia had also increased by +6.6% y-o-y last year, despite the widely reported Customs clearance difficulties and port  restrictions,  to  89.7  mln tonnes in the 12 months of 2019.
 
This year, despite all the politics, coal shipments from Australia to China continued to increase, rising by   +0.8%   y-o-y   in   the   Jan-Sep period of 2020 to 68.7 mln tonnes.
 
Elsewhere, volumes from Russia have continued to grow as more export capacity has become available,  especially  on  small vessels from Russia’s Far East ports – total seaborne volumes to China increased by +29.5% y-o-y to 25.3 mln tonnes in the first 9 months.
 
Exports from Ukraine to China also surged, by a massive 78.9% y-o-y to 5.8 mln tonnes in the first three quarters of 2020.
