The Coal Miner's Choice: Preferred Over Every Competitor

Independent Surveys Confirm that Coal Age Editorial is Preferred Over All Other Industry Publications1

Low cost energy is one of America's strengths. The use of coal as a major fuel source for U.S. power plants will keep energy costs low for the foreseeable future. For more than 100 years, Coal Age has been the magazine readers can trust for guidance and insight on this important industry. It remains the most widely read and most respected magazine in the industry.

Globally, the demand for coal continues to grow as industrialized and developing nations' demand for low-cost energy increases. Over the next two decades, the U.S. Department of Energy has forecast total worldwide energy demand will grow more than 55% and coal use is forecast to grow 74%. The U.S. produces approximately 1 billion tons of coal annually. More than 93% of coal consumption in the U.S. is used for electrical power generation. As a fuel source, coal continues to provide the largest percentage of total electricity generation in the U.S. Electricity demand is a function of gross domestic product and residential demand.

More recently, coal exports and the seaborne coal trade have attracted a lot of attention. Demand for coal worldwide, especially coking coals used to make steel, has pushed delivered prices to highs of approximately $200/ton. The market fundamentals are expected to remain robust for the foreseeable future. This is a considerable premium over steam coals, which are used for power generation and selling for about $65/ton. Some of the best coking coals can be found in West Virginia, Virginia and Alabama.

Coal Age remains the best choice for advertisers selling machinery and services to reach coal mining and processing professionals. With more than 100 years of service, we are proud not only of our longevity, but of the quality of the publication we continue to create. As the industry changes and responds to new challenges, Coal Age will continue to lead with meaningful— and fearless—editorial that commands respect from a demanding and loyal readership.
