The global petroleum coke market is experiencing robust growth, driven by soaring demand from the cement and power generation sectors. The expansion of cement and power generation capacities, particularly in emerging economies, has contributed significantly to the markets expansion. Additionally, increased investment in crude oil production capacity by major industry players is providing lucrative opportunities for market growth.
Expanding Markets and Export Opportunities
In a notable development, the Arabian Cement Company (ACC) signed an agreement in July 2019 with the Egyptian Refining Company to supply local petroleum coke (petcoke), underscoring the increased exports of this vital resource. This export trend has contributed to the markets upward trajectory.
Diverse Applications Spark Growth
The petroleum coke market is not only benefitting from traditional industries but also witnessing a transformation in applications across medical, electrical components, and ceramics sectors. The rapid growth of the electronic industry, in particular, is propelling market growth. Furthermore, petroleum coke distribution and supply agreements are emerging as a catalyst for market expansion.
Fuel Grade Coke: The Driving Force
Fuel grade coke is the dominant segment in the market and is poised for rapid growth due to its high calorific value. Its low cost and high calorific value make it an attractive choice for the cement and power industries, especially in emerging economies such as India, China, and Japan. Calcined coke, on the other hand, is crucial for titanium dioxide production in paints, aluminum, steel, and fertilizer industries, and is experiencing heightened demand from the aluminum and steel sectors.
Asia Pacific Takes the Lead
Asia Pacific has asserted its dominance in the petroleum coke market and is expected to maintain its position as the largest regional market in terms of demand. The growth of the petroleum coke industry is closely linked to the expansion of petroleum refining, cement, and power sectors in the region. The population growth and rapid industrialization in Asia Pacific are fueling optimism among petroleum coke manufacturers. The regions attractiveness is further enhanced by its low-cost petroleum coke, which offers a cost-effective solution for power generation.
Europes Rise in Demand
Europe is poised to witness rapid market growth due to the cost-efficiency associated with electricity production using petroleum coke. The easy availability of this resource has led to its increasing use, replacing natural gas and coal as a favored fuel. Growing infrastructural development in the region is expected to drive petroleum coke demand.
Several key players are contributing to the growth of the petroleum coke market, including Oxbow Corporation, Petroleum Coke Industries Company, Renelux Cyprus Ltd., Graphite India Limited, Suncor Energy Inc., Phillips 66 Company, Aminco Resources LLC, Nippon Coke & Engineering. Co., Ltd., British Petroleum, and Marathon Petroleum Corporation.
