The metallurgical coke market consists of sales of metallurgical coke by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are used in iron and steel industry processes such as sinter plants, foundries, and blast furnaces to reduce iron ore to iron. Metallurgical coke is produced by the destructive distillation of coal in coke ovens. The prepared coal is heated in an oxygen-free atmosphere until all volatile components in the coal evaporate.

The main types of metallurgical coke are blast furnace coke, nut coke, foundry coke, pearl coke, breeze coke, buckwheat, and others. Blast furnace coke is a hard carbon material produced in the process of the destructive distillation of various blends of bituminous coal. It is an important raw material for pig iron production in the blast furnace. The different types of grades include low ash and high ash, which are used in numerous applications such as iron and steel making, sugar processing, glass manufacturing, and others. It is employed in several sectors, including steel, the foundry industry, and others.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the metallurgical coke market in 2021. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in the metallurgical coke market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The rapid growth in the steel industry is expected to propel the growth of the metallurgical coke market going forward. The steel industry refers to the business of processing iron ore into steel, which is an iron-carbon alloy, and in some cases, turning that metal into partially finished products or recycling scrap metal into steel. The metallurgical coke is helpful in iron ore and limestone for making molten iron, which is then further treated and heated to make steel.

For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), an India-based government promotion agency, in 2021 the production of crude steel and finished steel stood at 102.49 metric tonnes (MT) and 94.66 MT, respectively.

Additionally, the government is expected to fix the objective of increasing rural consumption of steel from the current 19.6 kg/per capita to 38 kg/per capita by 2030-31. Moreover, according to the Worldsteel Association, a Belgium-based association, the steel demand in the European Union is expected to reach 167.4 Mt in 2022. Therefore, rapid growth in the steel industry is driving the growth of the metallurgical coke market.

Strategic partnerships have emerged as a key trend gaining popularity in the metallurgical coke market. Major companies operating in metallurgical coke sector are undergoing partnerships for developing the metallurgical coke market.

For instance, in November 2021, ArcelorMittal, a Luxembourg-based commercial coke producer for the ferroalloy industry partnered with Orange Business Services, an India-based service provider, and Ericsson, a Sweden-based telecommunications company.

Through this partnership, these companies launched 5G Steel to test 4G/5G connectivity at ArcelorMittal’s industrial sites in France over the next three years. Further in July 2019, Arabian Cement Company, a Saudi Arabia-based cement company, partnered with Egyptian Refining Company, an Egypt-based provider of refined petroleum products. This partnership allows supplying local petroleum coke (pet coke) to Arabian Cement Company with an annual volume of tons as of July 2019.

The countries covered in the metallurgical coke market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.
