Australia's export prices surged by 18% on quarter in Q1 2022, accelerating sharply from a 3.5% gain in Q4 2021. This was the sixth straight quarter of rises, and the fastest pace since the series began in 1975, amid a lift in COVID-19 restrictions and surging commodity prices. Main contributors to the rise were: coal, coke, and briquettes (32.0%), driven by surging global demand for thermal and coking coals; petroleum, petroleum products (27.5%), led by global oil demand outpacing growth in global supply; metalliferrous and metal scrap (25.5%), driven by the increase in demand for iron ore from China; gas, natural and manufactured (13.0%), due to the rise in oil-linked contracts capturing the continued oil price rises in late 2021; and gold, non-monetary (4.8%), through increased demand for the safe-haven commodity due to growing global inflationary pressures and uncertainty over the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Through the year to Q1, export prices soared 46.7% after rising 38.3% in Q4. source: Australian Bureau of Statistics
