Category-wise Analysis

“High Demand from Power & Cement Kiln Industries”

The global petroleum coke market can be divided into two categories: fuel grade coke and calcined coke (green coke). Calcined petroleum coke is a dark-coloured solid made up mostly of carbon, sulphur, metals, and nonvolatile inorganic chemicals.

According to research, the aluminium industry is a major purchaser of calcined coke. By 2032, it might account for 75% to 80% of the global demand for calcined coke. Steel, paper, paint, and chemical industries are expected to secure the remaining percentage of calcined coke demand.

In these industries, calcined coke could be used to produce titanium dioxide pigments. Calcined coke is also widely used in the fertiliser, glass, brick, and colourings industries. Because of the increasing crude oil supply around the world, the worldwide calcined petroleum coke market is rapidly expanding.
