Comments · 15 Views

High tensile strength, good chemical stability, and high thermal conductivity of needle coke enables manufacturing of ultra-high power graphite electrode and artificial graphite cathode materials.

The global Needle Coke market size reached USD 2,293.5 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Increasing production of graphite electrodes for the steel industry, especially in emerging countries, growing usage of smart devices, and high demand for graphite batteries are some key factors driving market revenue growth. Needle coke is a premium grade, high value petroleum coke used in the manufacturing of graphite electrodes of very low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE). These graphite electrodes are used in Electric Arc Furnaces (EAFs) in the steel manufacturing industry for melting scrap metal and producing steel.

The report provides an in-depth analysis of the competitive landscape, along with company profiling of key players involved in the global Needle Coke market drivers and restraints market. The authors of the report make sure to equip readers with a thorough evaluation of the vendor landscape and inform them of the current and future changes that can be expected. The competitive analysis offered in the report inspects the market share, gross margin, product portfolio, consumption, market status, and technologies of leading players controlling a significant portion of the global Needle Coke market drivers and restraints market.


Rising demand for semiconductors, and various metals and materials and components from aerospace defense, building and construction, automotive, marine, and oil gas, among various others is driving inclining demand for needle coke. Needle coke is highly preferred for its low thermal expansion coefficient, low porosity, and high conductivity and widely used in the manufacture of synthetic graphite and anode material for lithium-ion batteries, which are used in Electric Vehicles (EVs). Graphite is the largest raw material in lithium-ion batteries by size. Surge in demand for EVs owing to increasing environmental impact and rising carbon emissions and favorable initiatives by governments for green and low-carbon economy is boosting revenue growth of the needle coke market. For instance, Tesla Model S electric vehicle contains up to 85kg of graphite. Increasing penetration of electric vehicles and shifting consumer preference towards hybrid-electric cars are factors expected to continue to drive market revenue growth during the forecast period.

Volatility in the global natural gas and crude oil prices owing to fluctuations in demand and supply as well as potential shortage of petroleum-derived needle coke as petroleum prices continue to rise are expected to restraint growth of market to a major extent. Moreover, petroleum needle coke cost is driven even higher owing to required filtration to remove a major portion of ash content from the decant oil. Ukraine-Russia conflict has led to implementation of stringent sanctions, which has driven international crude oil prices up, rising by over 9% and breaking through USD 100 for the first time since 2014. Trade costs are also expected to rise owing to sanctions, export restrictions, higher energy costs, and transport disruptions, thereby affecting many economies in long-term consequences.
