Indonesian coal exports are expected to fall 10 percent from current levels, Manjot Singh, a senior consultant at commodities consultancy group CRU said on Tuesday, as its biggest customer China ramps up its decarbonisation efforts.

Shipments from the world’s biggest thermal coal exporter are expected to fall by 40 million tonnes or around 10 percent by 2025 as Chinese imports is seen to fall 45%, Singh told a virtual conference.

Indonesia will likely divert its exports to other growing regions such as India and other Southeast Asian countries, but will likely face stiff competition from Russia and Australia, he added.

The drop is due to China’s climate ambitions, which CRU forecasts will lead to an addition of more than 100 gigawatts of solar and wind capacity in the next five years.
