Anthracite is the coal with the highest degree of coalification, featuring high fixed carbon content, high density, high hardness, high ignition point, and no smoke when burning. According to the publisher's analysis, in China, anthracite is widely used in the power industry, building materials industry, chemical industry and steel industry, among which, the power industry has the largest demand for anthracite. China's power generation and electricity consumption remain high and are gradually expanding, driving the import of anthracite coal.

In 2021, China imported 9,167,200 tons of anthracite coal, up 18.25% year-on-year, with an import value of US$1,392 million, up 107.71% year-on-year. From January to October 2022, China imported 9,260,700 tons of anthracite coal, up 22.80% year-on-year, with an import value of US$1,966 million, up 91.59% year-on-year.

From 2018-2022, China's anthracite import prices generally show a decreasing trend followed by an increasing trend. According to the publisher's analysis, the average price of China's anthracite imports falls continuously from 2018-2020, from US$124.29 per ton in 2018 to US$86.44 per ton in 2020.

From 2021 to 2022, the average price of China's anthracite imports rose sharply in succession. In 2021, the average price of China's anthracite imports was US$151.85 per ton, an increase of 75.66% y-o-y. From January to October 2022, the average price of China's anthracite imports was US$212.30 per ton, an increase of 56.02% y-o-y.

The sources of China's anthracite coal imports are relatively concentrated. In 2021, China imported anthracite coal from nine countries and regions around the world. According to the publisher's analysis, the Russian Federation, Peru and South Africa are the main sources of China's anthracite coal imports by import volume. The Russian Federation is China's largest anthracite importer, and in 2021, China imported 8,845,400 tons of Russian anthracite, accounting for 96.49% of total anthracite imports in that year, with an import value of US$1,347 million, accounting for 96.75% of the total import value.

China's anthracite imports are expected to continue to rise in the period 2023-2032.

Background research defines the range of products and industries, which proposes the key points of the research. Proper classification will help clients understand the industry and products in the report.

Secondhand material research is a necessary way to push the project into fast progress. The analyst always chooses the data source carefully. Most secondhand data they quote is sourced from an authority in a specific industry or public data source from governments, industrial associations, etc. For some new or niche fields, they also "double-check" data sources and logics before they show them to clients.

Primary research is the key to solve questions, which largely influence the research outputs. The analyst may use methods like mathematics, logical reasoning, scenario thinking, to confirm key data and make the data credible.

The data model is an important analysis method. Calculating through data models with different factors weights can guarantee the outputs objective.

The analyst optimizes the following methods and steps in executing research projects and also forms many special information gathering and processing methods.

1. Analyze the life cycle of the industry to understand the development phase and space.
2. Grasp the key indexes evaluating the market to position clients in the market and formulate development plans
3. Economic, political, social and cultural factors
