The global Needle Coke market is expected to grow from USD 3.74 billion in 2019 to USD 6.43 billion by 2027, at a CARG of 7% during the forecast period 2020-2027.

Needle coke a high value petroleum coke which is used in manufacturing of graphite electrodes of low CET for the electric arc furnaces in the steel industry. It has a needle-like structure and is made of coal tar pitch or slurry oil from refineries. Needle coke is the major raw material for making graphite electrodes which are used in the manufacturing process of steel using an electric arc furnace.

Production of needle coke required specific cooking condition, calcination condition and feedstocks. The needle coke made in drum is decoked using high pressure water jets and the coke is then calcined in rotary calciner at best severity.

The study delivers a comprehensive analysis by type, application, grade and region.

The type segment includes coal based and petroleum based. Petroleum based needle coke dominates the market due to its ability to sustain under high-temperature conditions particularly in steel manufacturing, has high application areas and it is less risky to the environment.

The application segment includes silicon metals, electrode and carbon black. Needle coke utilizes as a silicon metals in the market and electrode in ferroalloy furnaces. The needle cokes are mainly required in graphite electrodes, which are used in submerged are furnaces of high capacities.

The grade segment includes base premium, intermediate premium and super premium. Super premium section dominates the market. Super premium grade is preferred in many steel as well as carbon application due to low sulphur content and exceptional inherent properties.

The market is regionally divided into South America, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific region dominates the market and North American region is the fastest growing region.

The major players of needle coke markets are Phillips 66, Sea-Drift Coke LP, Boatailong NewCo. Ltd., HEG, Tokai Caron, SEC, JXTG Holdings Inc., Indian Oil Corporation, Mitsubishi Cheical Corporation, C-Chem Co., Graphite India Ltd., Petroleum Coke Industries Co. Ltd., Nippon Carbon and Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Co. Ltd.
