Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/35zxx7/japan_coal) has announced the addition of the "Japan Coal Industry: Porters Five Forces Analysis" report to their offering.
Japan is the world's largest coal importing country, with imports amounting to nearly 180Mt of coal, equal to one-fourth of world's hard coal trade. Japan, which depends for nearly 100% of its coal supply on imports, has been making a continuous effort to develop and implement high efficiency coal-fired power generation technology. Japanese coal is found at the extreme ends of the country, in Hokkaido and Kyushu, which have, respectively, 45 and 40% of the country's coal deposits.
Kyushu's coal is generally of poor quality and hard to extract, but the proximity of the Kyushu mines to ports facilitates transportation. In Hokkaido, the coal seams are wider and can be worked mechanically, and the quality of the coal is good. Unfortunately, these mines are located well inland, making transportation difficult.
In order to understand the profitability and the dynamics of competitive structure of the coal industry in Japan, Taiyou Research presents a Porter's Five Forces Analysis of the Japanese Coal Industry.
In our report, apart from the Porter's Five Forces Model Analysis of the industry, we also analyze the basics of coal, including the various uses and types of coal, how coal is formed, and many other factors impacting the global coal industry.
