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 are the major factors driving the market growth. However, rising demand for pet coke from the steel and aluminum industries is another factor propelling market demand over the forecast period. Pet coke's other vital advantage is its high calorific value compared to natural gas and coal. As a result, it is regarded as being more cost-competitive than natural gas and coal. Approval by regulatory agencies such as the EPA and CRS to use pet coke 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 the Asia-Pacific and RoW regions. Asia Pacific dominates the petcock market in terms of demand and is the largest importer of petcoke. Due to rapid industrialization, most of the petcoke in countries such as China and India is used in power plants for generating electricity and cement kilns.

Even in Latin America and the Middle East, substantial demand for petrochemicals exists owing to the rising population and increasing infrastructure developments in the regions. Europe is another lucrative market for pet coke owing to the rising demand for electricity in the region. Many European crude oil companies had delayed cooking units to produce petrochemicals locally. The market for petcoke in North America is mature and is projected to witness average growth over the next six years. However, North America has become the major exporter of petcoke.
