Due to the impact of COVID-19, IHS Markit will be holding the 16th Annual Southern African Coal Conference online on March 23-25, 2021.

2020 brought an unprecedented amount of challenges and opportunities for South Africa’s coal industry, with producers forced to quickly adapt to a new normal.

With Richards Bay prices surging to two-year highs above $100/t FOB, exporters seized new opportunities in China, while fighting to protect their dominant market share in India. Domestically, however, the picture wasn’t as bright as producers and junior miners struggled with weakening demand due to the fallout from COVID-19. South Africa’s biggest coal buyer, Eskom, unveiled a new roadmap for its coal plants, hoping to bring more stability to the heavily indebted state utility. What will 2021 bring?

IHS Markit’s Southern African Coal Conference is back again for the 16th consecutive year, bringing together the industry’s top leaders and experts to discuss the opportunities and challenges for both the export and domestic markets in 2021 and beyond. The event will be held virtually over a three-day period from March 23-25, 2021.

Among the topics to be covered:

  • Short and long-term impacts from COVID-19
  • Outlook for international and domestic markets.
  • Funding for future coal projects.
  • Eskom’s future roadmap.
  • Future opportunities and challenges for junior miners.
  • And much, much more!
