Green Petroleum Coke Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: May 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]Global green petroleum coke demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.25%. Green petroleum coke is obtained from processing liquid fractions in the delayed coking units in refineries. Green petroleum coke is a material with high fixed carbon content which comprises of hydrocarbons and low levels of inorganic compounds. It appears as a bulk composed of solid black fragments. The term ‘green’ in the name refers to the stage of its production process. Green petroleum coke has low sulphur content as compared to other types of coke. By grade type it can be segmented into anode grade which is used to obtain calcined coke which is used to manufacture anodes to produce aluminium or titanium dioxide, and metallurgical grade which is used as a reducing agent in iron and steel industry. Green petroleum coke is available in different forms such as sponge coke, purge coke, shot coke, needle coke, honeycomb coke. Growing demand of application areas such as aluminium and iron and steel production and increasing government initiatives for low emission materials is expected to drive the demand of green petroleum coke during the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing demand from cement industry is also another factor pushing the demand as green petroleum coke can be added to cement in different compositions. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on a number of industries. Aluminium and iron and steel industries were among the most affected industries during the pandemic due to various plant shutdowns and decrease in the overall demand. This had an impact on the demand of green petroleum coke for the first half of 2020. Therefore, the demand for green petroleum coke fell during the coronavirus pandemic.
Region wise, Asia pacific region holds the major share of global demand for green petroleum coke due to increasing demand of application areas including aluminium and iron and steel production.
