Calcined petroleum coke (CPC) is the byproduct obtained from the coker unit in a crude oil refinery. It is primarily used to make anodes for the aluminum, steel, and titanium smelting industry. The global calcined petroleum coke market is rapidly growing across the globe, owing to the increasing crude oil supply across the globe. Calcined petroleum coke is also used as a feedstock for a wide range of the products such as aluminum, paints, coatings, and colorings, etc. Calcined petroleum coke is a black-colored solid material primarily comprises of carbon, sulfur, metals, and nonvolatile inorganic compounds. It offers several advantages such as safe handling, transportation, and storage with lox toxicity.
Based on type, the global market is bifurcated into anode grade and needle grade. The Anode grade segment accounted for the major share of the market, owing to its excellent electrical conductivity and physical properties. Anode grade is a low-quality product with a high content of carbon.
Based on end-user, the market is classified into carburizing & recarburizing electric arc & induction furnaces, and others. Among these, the electric arc and induction furnaces segment accounted for the major share of the market. Electrodes used in the manufacturing of electric and induction furnaces are manufactured using calcined pet-coke. These furnaces are widely used in steel manufacturing. Calcined petroleum coke is widely used in carburizing and recarburizing process, owing to its lower grade of coke and high carbon content.
Demand for calcined coke rapidly growing across the globe, due to the increasing steel industry, development in the cement and power generation industries, growth in the supply of heavy oils and favorable government initiatives regarding the green environment. Calcined petroleum coke is widely used in the aluminum and manufacturing of electrodes, which are used in the metal sector for electric arc and induction furnaces.
