CHINA KICKS AN OWN GOAL WITH AUSTRALIAN COAL - FORBES
China’s annoyance at Australia’s hardline stance on political interference and demands for an independent inquiry into the root cause of the Covid-19 pandemic has been a win for at least two other Asian countries, Japan and India.
 
Refusal by Chinese authorities to permit the unloading of high-quality coking or steel-making coal from Australia has seen the material gleefully received by steel makers in other countries.
 
According to one analysis Japan and India have been the primary recipients of diverted cargoes, helping cut the price of steel in those countries.
 
Credit Suisse, an investment bank, said in a note to clients earlier this week that Australian premium hard coking coal was being sold in India and Japan at $70 a ton less than China’s domestic price for lower-quality steel-making coal.
 
“China’s Australian coal import ban is starting to look like an own goal for steel mills,” Credit Suisse said.
 
The bank said China’s coal ban was enhancing Japan’s steel competitiveness.
 
Coal Markets Distorted
 
“Metallurgical (coking) coal prices are becoming distorted as China’s ban on Australian imports of coal continues,” Credit Suisse said.
 
Steel mills forced to abandon Australia as a supplier, despite its coking coal being widely-regarded as the best in the world, have been seeking replacement material from other countries, including Canada and the U.S.
 
Credit Suisse believes the market will gradually correct as Australian coal miners adjust to the requirements of different countries, but in the short term those countries are enjoying a bonus in the form of cheap coal.
 
“Distressed Australian cargoes have been bought by India, Japan, South-East Asia and Europe, but it seems cargoes remain as the price has sagged further this week.
 
“These destinations should enjoy cheaper coke costs than China, creating a competitive advantage in steel export markets.”
 
Credit Suisse said once the distressed selling ended Australian hard-coking coal prices should recover, even without Chinese buyers.
 
“Hard coking-coal demand is returning in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, India, Brazil, Europe and Vietnam which should absorb most of the Australian supply,” the bank said.
 
“It may not permit prices of $145 a ton that we forecast with Chinese demand, but a price of $130/t seems achievable.”
 
Other Markets Open
 
The Chinese ban on Australian coal, especially highly-prized coking coal is starting to look like an own goal by China as alternative markets open.
 
Shipments of Australian coking coal to India hit a record 4.9 million tons in September, up 7% month-on month while China’s imports sank to 1.8m/t.
 
“Japan also opened up, with imports up 73% month-on-month to 3.1m/t in September as domestic auto industry and electronic component industries recover,” the bank said.
 
“Overall, Australia’s total coking coal exports rose 5% month-on-month in September to 14.9m/t, which was down 2% on a year-to-year basis.”
 
Credit Suisse said the coking coal ban was detrimental to Chinese steelmakers.
 
“So, we expect it will be removed after Chinese New year and prices will normalize.”
