South Africa’s coal industry is in the midst of significant change – with the introduction of a new mining charter, changing coal quality and pressure to conserve its natural resources ... is the changing situation in the export market the start of an upswing and brighter future?
As traditional Indian buyers face increased competition when purchasing South African coal with aggressive buyers in North Asia, the rest of Africa and other continents flowing into Richards Bay to pick up cargoes – South Africa’s future is starting to look very bright again. And with key developing markets such Pakistan, the Middle East and far eastern Africa showing rapid and substantial growth – many see this as a major opportunity for South African miners to expand their overseas presence and market share.
South Africa’s neighbours such as Botswana and Mozambique are also beginning to play a role in both the South African domestic and export markets. New routes to export, as well as a specific government focus on investment and infrastructure, are proving that there is a great amount of life and growth ahead for this market.
Attend the 13th Annual South African Coal Export Conference and join industry experts, your colleagues and current and future customers as they discuss what lies ahead for the South African coal sector – and what that means for your business, sales and profitability in the months and years ahead!
