Needle Coke Market Challenges
Fluctuation in crude oil prices
Fluctuation in the entire natural gas and crude oil sector is estimated to negatively impact the growth of needle coke market caused primarily due to gap in demand and supply of needle coke. Moreover, even though the petroleum products are assessed to depict a substantial growth in future, the economic and political instability with respect to the sale of these products is estimated to hamper growth of needle coke market.
Increased production of coke to improve the refinery margins, rise in investment are some of the key strategies adopted by players in the needle coke market. The market appears to be fragmented owing to the emergence of several players all over the world. Major players in the needle coke market are Phillips 66, Asbury Carbon Inc., Seadrift Coke L.P., Sumitomo Chemical Company, Mitsubishi Chemical Corp., JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., Indian Oil Corporation Limited, GrafTech International, Essar, Baosteel Group and Others.
In August 2019, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) invested $1.3 billion in expanding its Paradip refinery capacity from 15 million tons per annum (mtpa) to 25 mtpa.
In April 2019, Sumitomo Chemical Company invested $150 million into a new project at the Changzhou National Hi-Tech District (CND) facility of Sumika Electronic Materials (Changzhou) Co., Ltd.
