Summary

GlobalData's South Africa Coal Mining to 2023 provides a comprehensive coverage on South Africa's coal industry. It provides reserves, production by type, consumption by end-use to 2023, and exports. The report also includes a demand drivers section providing information on factors that are affecting the coal industry in South Africa, profiles of major coal producers, information on the major active, planned and exploration projects and regulations governing the industry.

South Africa had 9.9Bnt of proven coal reserves as of January 2019. The country produced 256.6Mt coal in 2018, of this 98.6% was thermal coal and remaining 1.4% was metallurgical. Meanwhile, the country stood as the world’s sixth largest coal consumer, with demand mainly driven the domestic power industry, accounting for 66.8%. However, the regulatory changes within the country in order to reduce carbon emission are likely to affect coal demand over the forecast period. In 2018, country exported 81.2Mt, down by 2.7%, mainly due to lower demand from the major exports markets. Glencore Plc, Anglo American Plc, Exxaro Resources Ltd and South32 Ltd are the major players in the South African coal industry.
