Needle coke is made entirely from either coal tar pitch or from fluid catalytic cracking, which can also be termed as FCC decants oil. Honeycomb coke is an intermediate needle coke, with elliptical pores that are distributed uniformly. Needle cokes are used majorly as a primary material for the graphite electrodes in an electric furnace. Needle coke produced from coal tar is called coal-based needle coke, which appears during coke production. Needle coke has its applications in Electrode, Silicon metals & ferroalloys, carbon black, and rubber compounds.
The emergence of electric vehicles was very less; however, the growing trend that adopted a hybrid electric car is expected to achieve importance in the next couple of years due to the implementation of various steps to reduce carbon and other harmful emissions. The rising preference towards hybrid electric cars is estimated to be the considerable factor expected to propel the market for needle coke during the forecast period. Needle coke is the primary raw material used for the manufacture of graphite electrodes with the help of an arc furnace in the aluminum and steel industries.
According to the regional terminology, the Asia Pacific region had the largest market share in terms of revenue share due to governmental initiatives for the support of the domestic manufacturing that will restrain reliance on imports, which in turn will propel the regional production levels and will provide opportunities for industrial manufacturers and graphite producers.

Key Highlights From The Report
In September 2020, Indian Oil Corporation announced its plan to invest Rs1,268 crore or USD 1.7 Million in a new petroleum needle coke in Odisha at its Paradip Refinery unit. The unit is proposed to have a capacity of 56ktpy.
Coal-based needle coke has an inherent advantage over the petroleum coke as it is more aromatic and has fewer side effects attached to the aromatic rings. If treated properly, the needle coke from coal-based feedstock could be superior to that from the petroleum-based feedstock.
The super-premium grade exhibits a low puffin rate, low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), which ensures higher productivity by 5% in the recycling operations of steel. The super-premium grade is also the finest grade used in the production of high-quality ultra-high power (UHP) graphite electrodes.
Graphite electrodes find application in the ladle furnace (LF) and electric arc furnace (EAF) for the production of silicon metal, steel, melting processes, and ferroalloy production, among others.
The market in the Asia Pacific region dominated the needle coke market share in the year 2019 and is anticipated to have a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. The high market share in the region is due to the growth of the manufacturing sector and growing infrastructure.
Key participants include Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Phillips 66, Graftech International, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Sumitomo Chemical Company, Sojitz Ject Corporation, China National Petroleum Corporation, Baosteel Group, Asbury Carbon Inc., and Graphite India Limited, among others.
