McCloskey by OPIS, A Dow Jones Company

South Africa’s coal industry is facing major challenges this year as the country’s power crisis cripples the economy and severe logistical headaches show little sign of improvement. And this year the industry doesn’t have the record high coal prices to protect them. So, how are the coal and metals industries handling the changing landscape and what is in store for the rest of 2023?

Join McCloskey by OPIS experts John Howland, James Stevenson, Randy Fabi and Tiisetso Nkosi for an examination of the challenges and opportunities in this essential coal region. This webinar will:

  • Provide detailed analysis of domestic and international thermal coal market movements to help you plan for the remainder of 2023 and into 2024. Where will we see seaborne thermal coal prices in the short to medium term?
  • Spotlight our latest forecasts on trade flows. Will we see the return of strong European demand for South African coal next winter? How about India – will they continue to be the top buyer of South African material or will they turn more towards cheaper Russian material?
  • Update you with the latest market developments impacting South Africa’s coal and metals industries. Are we likely to see much improvement from Eskom and Transnet this year?
