Global Petroleum Coke Market to Grow at 7.6% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Increasing Demand for Energy Production

November 02, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Petroleum Coke Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global petroleum coke market size reached US$ 21.8 Billion in 2021. Petroleum coke refers to a refining by-product that is obtained during crude oil refining and other cracking processes. Numerous grades of petroleum coke can be derived that vary depending upon the quality of the raw material as well as the coking time length and operation temperature. It is a carbon-rich material that is extensively utilized as a fuel with low ash content, high calorific value and high-power output value. It offers exceptional chemical stability and is cost-efficient in nature. As a result, it is widely employed for a vast array of application segments, including the production of metals, cement, anodes, paints, electrodes, fertilizers and bricks, across multiple industry verticals.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Petroleum Coke Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing energy demand from across the globe, especially from emerging economies. The continual depletion of conventional energy sources and the rising demand for alternate fuels with high energy output are creating a positive outlook for the market. Since petroleum coke also possesses high fuel stability and lesser risks of combustion during transportation at affordable rates, it is gaining widespread prominence as a key substitute for coal across diverse industries. Supported by rapid industrialization, this is providing a significant thrust to the market growth. The market is further driven by the increasing applications of the material across the construction sector, facilitated by continual infrastructural developments on the global level. Furthermore, the growing adoption of green fuel-grade petroleum coke that is manufactured by processing liquid fractions in delayed coking units (UCR) is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. These product variants contain lower sulfur content while offering higher ductility and resistance to corrosion. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the increasing investments to expand refining capacities and the implementation of numerous stringent regulations to minimize carbon footprint. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 7.6% during 2022-2027.
