Metallurgical Coke Market

Global Market Study on Metallurgical Coke: Automotive and Construction Industry Growth to Reinforce Demand

Metallurgical Coke Market Segmented By Blast Furnace Coke, Foundry Coke, Technical Coke Product Type in Low Ash Content, High Ash Content


Metallurgical coke, also known as coke/met coke, is a carbonaceous material manufactured by the destructive distillation of high carbon content coal, such as bituminous coal, in high temperature ovens in the absence of air. Metallurgical coke is a basic raw material used for the production of pig iron and steel.

Metallurgical coke is categorized into three categories based on size and ash content: blast furnace coke, foundry coke and technical coke. The global Metallurgical Coke market is estimated to be valued at US$ 186.0 Bn by 2018 end and is expected to reach US$ 241.1 Bn by 2027 end expanding at a CAGR of 2.9% over the forecast period. The global Metallurgical Coke market is projected to create significant growth opportunity during the forecast period.

Factors Driving Growth of the Global Metallurgical Coke Market

Metallurgical coke is primarily used as a raw material for the production of iron and steel. Metallurgical coke is used for the production of almost 70% of metallurgical coke. Hence, market trends across the steel industry directly reflect on the metallurgical coke market. The growth of the construction and automotive industries are the prominent demand drivers for iron & steel.

The construction sector is one of the biggest consumers of steel products, accounting for more than half of the steel demand globally. The construction industry has witnessed significant growth over the past few years and is expected to follow the same trend over the forecast period. This, in turn, is anticipated to push the growth of the global Metallurgical Coke market during the forecast period.

Government led initiatives for economic diversification and increasing investments for infrastructural development are also expected to facilitate the growth in demand for steel. This, in turn, is going to create healthy growth opportunities for the metallurgical coke manufacturers.

The metallurgical coke market in developing countries, such as India, China, Brazil and ASEAN countries, is anticipated to be driven by the growing construction industry. Moreover, increasing infrastructural investments for projects, such as construction of light rail corridors, office buildings and shopping centers, among others in the U.S., are expected to further fuel the demand for metallurgical coke.

Another key factor significantly driving the growth of metallurgical coke is increasing production and demand for automobiles. According to the World Steel Association, the automotive sector accounted for around 12% of the global steel consumption. Steel is used is the manufacturing of vehicle body structures, drive trains, cast iron for engine blocks, suspensions, fuel tanks, steering, breaking systems and various other components.

Thus, any growth is automotive production, significantly drives steel demand, which in turn, translates into the growth of the metallurgical coke market.

One of the key trends observed across the global metallurgical coke market universe is increasing investments to improve productivity and overall efficiency of coking ovens. Furthermore, growing environmental concerns and stringent regulations are driving metallurgical coke manufacturers to upgrade and reconstruct their production plants.
