Petroleum coke is a solid carbon material that is a by-product of the crude refining transformation process, and is also known as a pet coke. Diverse grades of petroleum coke are manufactured by changing the raw material, coking operation temperature, and cooking time. It is used as an origin of power in various industries such as power generation, aluminum, cement, steel, and others. In addition, it is used in the metallurgical industry for the manufacture of anodes, which is used for electric arc furnaces. Petroleum coke is a cost-effective alternative to coal with higher calorific value and lower ash content.
Global Petroleum Coke Market: Market Dynamics
According to the report, rising demand from various end-use industries such as cement, automobiles, and transportation sector coupled with growing global energy demand are key factors driving growth of the global petroleum coke market. Also, growing supply of heavy oils across the globe, and for use in the production of steel on account of development in automobiles, railways, highway construction, and transportation segments are major factors expected to fuel growth of the global petroleum coke market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing applications of petroleum coke in fertilizers to produce ammonia nitrate and urea, and in the paint industry to produce titanium dioxide are other factors expected to boost growth for this market.
However, high carbon dioxide (CO2) output due to use of petroleum coke as compared with normal coal due to its high carbon content is a key factor restraining growth of the global petroleum coke market. Additionally, after combustion of petroleum coke, small amounts of hazardous gases are emitted along with CO2, which have adverse effects on human health. This factor is expected to hamper growth of the global petroleum coke market to a significant extent.
