Sales volumes review
In 2019, the Group’s coal products sales rose by 3% to 17.6 million tonnes, mainly due to higher production volumes at the Raspadskaya-Koksovaya, Uskovskaya and Alardinskaya mines.
Inter-segment coal products sales increased by 8% to 6.6 million tonnes, as EVRAZ focuses on maximising supplies to the Group. Total external coal products sales remained at the level of the previous year of 11.1 million tonnes.
Export sales moved up just by 1% to 7.7 million tonnes in 2019. EVRAZ significantly rose its supplies to Asian countries by 12%, meanwhile this growth was offset by lower sales to Europe.
On the domestic market, EVRAZ remains the leading coking coal producer with an average 22% market share in all coal grades.
