Needle coke is premium grade high value petroleum coke used in the manufacturing of graphite electrodes with very low coefficient of thermal expansion for electric arc furnaces in steel industry. Coke has relatively very low volatile matter content that suits it for a better fuel. Production of needle coke demands specific feedstock, calcinations conditions and coking conditions. Needle cokes are used as a primary material for electrode used in an electric steel furnace that melts and refines steel scrap. The main advantage of needle coke is that it does not require special design of delayed Coker unit and can produce Needle Coke in existing unit without major modification.

Growing demand for product in steel industry, growing demand of Lithium Ion batteries and development of efficient and advance technology are the major factors driving the growth of the needle coke market. For instance, Indian Oil research & development has developed a technology for production of Needle Coke from low value heavier hydrocarbon streams without any major feed pre-treatment. In addition, superior properties such as low coefficient of thermal expansion, puffing rate and large particle size are fuelling the growth of the market. However, insecurity in the global crude oil and natural gas markets owing to demand & supply fluctuations is a major restraint for needle coke market growth. Furthermore, growing refinery parameters owing to increasing needle coke prices is supposed to hike production capabilities particularly in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil this in turn is anticipated to create several growth opportunities in the needle coke market.

Among the geographies, Asia Pacific dominated the global needle coke market. China is anticipated to be the largest consumer market for needle coke and is anticipated to witness significant growth in increasing steel and aluminum industries.Presence of large number of graphite electrode manufactures have made European regions to increase the demand for needle coke. Majority of the needle coke in Europe is imported from Japan and China. The world’s largest manufacturer of needle coke is Conoco Phillips (Phillips 66).Moreover, North America is estimated to have fastest growth due to technological advancements in the region and average demand over the foreseeable.
