Market Potential and Pitfalls

The global petroleum coke market is expected to accrue revenues at a CAGR exceeding 6% over the forecast period. Its value stood at USD 25 billion in 2018. In addition, fuel grade petcoke consumption in the region is estimated to surpass 54,500 tons by the year 2025. 

Persistent crude oil extraction and refining will continue to influence the petroleum coke industry. The crude oil by-product finds application in processing of various industrial materials. Developments in novel techniques such as gasification can culminate in low weight of raw pet coke. The application of the coke as aviation fuel and development of metals such as cobalt and nickel can bode well for the market. Huge demand for hydrogen can entice petroleum coke producers and boost the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had hit the production lines in the U.S. and other major producers. Shutdown of cement plants in Spain and Brazil had affected the market negatively. But the easing of lockdown operations in certain countries has led to a surge in petcoke prices. This is further assisted with the procurement by customers in India and China.

Factors like the growth in the construction industry, in cement industry, in power plants, steel, and foundries are expected to influence the global petroleum coke market. The APAC market is also slated to influence the global market in the coming years with its high traction from diverse industries. However, its anti-environmental impact can curb the natural growth rate. However, regulatory pressures are dampening the market prospects of the product.

On the other hand, the high costs of Petroleum Coke production are likely to be a major restraint against the market in the coming years. Developing countries are likely to hold the high costs of Petroleum Coke production against the technology, leading to the market being centered on North America and Western Europe, as well as leading economies in Asia Pacific.
