Petroleum Coke (Petcoke) Market By Product (Fuel Grade Coke, Calcined Coke), By Application (Aluminum And Other Metals, Cement Kilns, Power Generation, Steel Metal, Storage) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2015 - 2022

Growing power and cement industries is the major factor driving the market growth. However, rising demand for petcoke from steel and aluminum industries is another factor propelling the market demand over the forecast period. The other vital advantage that pet coke carries is its high calorific value as compared to natural gas and coal. It is regarded as being more cost competitive than natural gas and coal. Approval by regulatory agencies such as EPA and CRS to use petcoke in various industrial applications is projected to drive the market over the coming years due to its non-toxic nature. 

The market for petcoke is growing substantially due to rising demand from emerging economies in Asia Pacific and RoW regions. Asia Pacific dominates the petcoke market in terms of demand and is the largest importer of petcoke. Most of the petcoke in countries such as China and India is used in power plants for generating electricity and in cement kilns due to rapid industrialization. Even in the Latin America and Middle East, substantial demand for petcoke exist owing to rising population and increasing infrastructure developments in the regions.Europe is another lucrative market for petcoke owing to rising demand of electricity in the region. Many crude oil company in Europe had delayed the cooking units to produce petcoke locally.  The market for petcoke in North America is mature and is projected to witness average growth rate over the next six years. However, North America has become the major exporter of petcoke.
