Coal Market in Japan: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The better electricity generation technology is notably driving the coal market growth in Japan, although factors such as uncertainty in the demand and price of coal may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the coal industry in Japan. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Coal Market Driver in Japan

Better electricity generation technology is one of the key drivers supporting the coal market growth in Japan. Coal-fired power fleet plants increasingly use supercritical plants, which are better than subcritical boiler technology. This technique helps in gaining thermal efficiencies of about 40%. The only drawback of supercritical plants is the high capital cost due to the requirement of high steam pressures and temperatures. The cost saved on fuel can mitigate this increased cost. Regarding CO2 emissions, a supercritical plant can emit around 20% less CO2 than a subcritical plant. Thus, within policy interventions and technological progress, high-efficiency low emission (HELE) technologies are expected to be implemented and thus bringing down the subcritical fleet to around 50% in 2025. These new technologies can help in reducing emissions, and this, in turn, can increase the use of coal during the forecast period.

Key Coal Market Trend in Japan

Usage of the liquid form of coal as fuel and electricity is another factor supporting the coal market growth in Japan. Liquid fuels derived from coal produce fewer air pollutants when burned than burning coal directly. They are also sulfur-free and have low levels of oxides of nitrogen. Several coal-to-liquids (CTL) demonstration plants are also being developed. The future of the transportation industry is expected to be electric vehicles. Furthermore, Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) are expected to contribute approximately half to the total annual light-duty vehicle sales across the world by 2050. All the coal plants can use carbon capture and storage (CCS) to provide carbon electricity for personal electric vehicles. When compared to conventional vehicles, PHEV emits 33% less GHG emissions when charged with electricity from advanced supercritical coal power plants. If these advanced supercritical coal power plants have CCS is installed, the emission is 66% less. Such less emission will lead to positive growth of the market during the forecast period.

Key Coal Market Challenge in Japan

The demand and price of coal are some of the factors hindering the coal market growth in Japan. For instance, according to the IEA, in 2019, global coal consumption declined by 1.2%. In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 further contributed to the uncertainties in global coal prices. On August 22, 2020, the global price of coal was around $51 per ton, while it was over $53 per ton on July 22, 2020. The decline in industrial activities due to the imposition of lockdown in the country during 2020, led to a reduction in coal demand in Japan. Also, for metallurgical coal, the demand and price of coal are affected by the demand for steel and other competing technologies used in steel production, some of which do not use coal as a manufacturing input. All these factors would impact the coal market in Japan adversely during the forecast period.

This coal market in Japan analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.
