Percentage share of global coal consumption

2015 saw a continuation of the major geographic shift in the global coal market towards Asia. In 2000, about half of coal demand was in Europe and North America, while Asia accounted for less than half. By 2015, Asia accounted for almost three-quarters of coal demand, while coal consumption in Europe and North America had declined sharply below one quarter. IEA analysis suggests this shift will accelerate in the next years.
