As part of our core consulting services, BOYD regularly prepares forecasts of coal pricing and commodity pricing in the United States as well as international markets. These coal market forecasts are utilized by a broad base of clients including electric utilities, lending institutions, project developers, and others associated with the coal and energy industry. Key to our domestic forecasting efforts is BOYD’s annual industry review and supporting model known as CoalVision™.
Now in its 12th year, CoalVision provides consistent, comprehensive market intelligence on the US coal industry, with focus on the ancillary factors that influence coal’s production, trade, and usage. Our analysis is conducted within the context of the major coal markets (metallurgical and steam, both domestic and international) with supply/demand and coal price forecasts to the year 2040.
