Petcoke Market to exceed $25bn by 2024
Published Date: September 5, 2017 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Petcoke Market size will exceed USD 25 billion by 2024, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Increasing investments toward industrialization across developing economies coupled with growing demand for cost efficient and reliable alternate fuels will drive the global petcoke market size. In 2016, Egypt’s Arabian Cement announced to invest USD 9 million for constructing a petcoke mill with an aim to reduce the overall operating costs by lowering the freight rates of the product. Rapid urbanization with ongoing measures to mitigate carbon emissions will further augment the business landscape.
For Europe, Russia petcoke market is projected to exceed 5.5 MMT by 2024. Positive outlook towards steel and aluminum industries along with increasing number of power generating stations will stimulate the product demand. Ongoing modernization and expansion of existing refineries will further complement the industry landscape.
U.S. petcoke market size will grow owing to growing investment towards expansion of coker units. In 2016, McPherson refinery announced to invest USD 579 million for multiyear coker replacement project to refine cheaper high density and large sulfur content crude oils. Increasing import for heavy crude oil from the U.S. refineries along with rising demand for value added refined products will further augment the business.
Low operational cost with reduced carbon emissions are some of the imperative features which will foster the petcoke market growth. Low volatile content of the product requires blending with coal when used as a fuel. The blend constitutes 20% to 30 % of petroleum coke which helps to reduce the operating cost by USD 120 million in a 1000 MW coal power plant.
