Coal & Ore Wholesaling in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Coal & Ore Wholesaling in the US

The Coal and Ore Wholesaling industry's performance is tied to the ruling market prices of coal and metal ores, which have been volatile over the five years to 2019. Ore and coal prices had been declining since 2014 but quickly rebounded in 2017, enabling the industry to regain its footing. Even as global economic growth continues, commodity prices are expected to be weak. Input prices are projected to become less volatile over the five years to 2024, increasing demand for industry services. However, growing concern over nonrenewable energy sources, such as coal, has the potential to harm the industry.

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in wholesaling coal, coke, metal ores and some nonmetallic minerals (except precious and semiprecious stones and minerals used in construction, such as sand and gravel).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
