Relocating plants to the coast with stricter environmental requirements means up to 20 of Chinas more than a billion tonne annual ore demand will shift from lower to higher grade ores within coming years according to industry sources and a Reuters analysis of official import and production statistics.
Steel executives say the demand shift in the top ore market will mean declining purchases of low grade supplies and greater demand for pelletised ore of a higher grade with potentially major implications for ore exporters in Australia.
Iron ore producers who can sell pellet feed into China will be better placed than those who dont have such products said Ian Roper general manager at Shanghai Metals Market a Chinese metals market research company with the major Australian lower grade specialist suppliers facing the biggest challenge in the medium to longer term.

Over a four year campaign against pollution as well as excess capacity in heavy industry China has shut 700 small steel mills with 140 million tonnes of steel capacity deemed sub standard plus 150 million tonnes of inefficient capacity at larger firms.
Remaining mills will need to further cut emissions and those located in the smog prone eastern rust belt must move to designated steel parks along the coast where fragile eco systems mean environmental regulations are strict.
More than 50 Chinese steel companies pledged in 2018 to shut old capacity and build new furnaces with a combined yearly capacity of 60 29 million tonnes according to a Reuters analysis of official industry data Nearly 25 million tonnes of this new capacity is scheduled to come on line in 2020.
