Petroleum Coke Market Trends

  • Increase in steel manufacturing to boost the market growth

The market for petroleum coke is anticipated to grow due to the increase in steel manufacturing. steel production has increased due to rising demand for highway structures, railroad facilities, and automobiles. Petcoke is a feedstock used in coke production and is combined with coking coal in the iron and steel industries. Pet coke usage results in a net reduction in energy intensity of just over 1% and a 16% decrease in coking coal consumption. For instance, the output of finished steel and raw steel stood at 94.66 million tonnes (MT) and 102.49 million tonnes (MT), respectively, in December 2021, according to IBEF, an Indian Government export promotion agency for the international distribution and sale of Indian exports. Additionally, it is anticipated that in the fiscal year 2022, crude steel production will rise by 8 to 9% YoY to 112 to 114 million tons. Therefore, the expansion of the petroleum coke market is being driven by the increase in steel production as a result of progress in the railway, automotive, highway, and transportation sectors.

Major players in the petroleum coke industry are concentrating their efforts on expanding petroleum coke production capacity to fulfill the escalating demand from end-use industries. For instance, Oman, the biggest crude exporter outside of Opec, declared in November 2021 that Sanvira Carbon FZC, the nation's first petroleum coke calcining (CPC) project, had been completed at the Sohar Freezone. With a $150 million investment, Sanvira Carbon FZC was founded to support refineries in the Sultanate of Oman and give value to the massive amounts of petroleum coke produced as a byproduct of refining. Therefore, such conditions have enhanced the Petroleum Coke market CAGR ly in recent years. During the forecast period, a rise in the cement and power generation industries and an increase in the supply of heavy oils ly are anticipated to propel the market for petroleum coke. Increased steel production due to progress in the railway, automobile, highway, and transportation sectors has contributed to the expansion of the petroleum coke market. Petroleum coke is extensively utilized in numerous sectors because of its low ash level and toxicity. Additionally, infrastructure development in the Middle East and Africa will likely increase the demand for petroleum coke in the area during the anticipated timeframe. Companies that refine crude oil have set up delayed coking plants to produce petroleum coke.

Petcoke storage and burning cause environmental issues. A waste management issue results from the accumulation of byproducts from the processing of pet coke. Petcoke causes externalities that could have an impact on the environment. 90% of its weight comprises elemental carbon, which burns to produce carbon dioxide (CO2). Additionally, using pet coke contributes to sulfur emissions and the potential for water pollution from nickel and vanadium runoff during refining and storage. Therefore, these factors are anticipated during the forecast period to restrain market expansion.

However, the shifting trend of using pet coke in medical, electrical components, and ceramics application is another factor driving the growth of the Petroleum Coke market revenue.

Petroleum Coke Market Segment Insights

Petroleum Coke Application Insights

Based on Application, the Petroleum Coke industry has been segmented into Cement, Power Plant, Brick and Glass, and Paper and Pulp. Cement held the largest segment share in 2021; the market for petroleum coke will expand in tandem with the rise of the cement industry. Increasing demand in various sectors, including housing, commercial development, and industrial building, has increased the requirement for cement. Pet coke is utilized as a fuel source in the cement industry. In some cement manufacturing facilities that only employ pet coke in place of coal, the SO2 released during thermal decomposition is absorbed by the limestone. For instance, China's cement industry maintained steady growth in 2020 despite the pandemic and flood scenario, thanks to infrastructure development and real estate investment. In 2020, 2.377 billion tons of cement were produced annually, a rise of 1.6% from the previous year. Therefore, it is anticipated that the expansion of the cement industry will fuel the petroleum coke market. Increased investment by important manufacturers has been a significant trend that is becoming more well-liked in the petroleum coke market.

The second fastest-growing segment in the Petroleum Coke industry is power plants. The causes of the rising demand for aluminum as a carbon and energy source to provide fuel for electricity production to heat cement kilns. It is projected that the growing demand from the power plant will increase demand for this market.
