Furthermore, the governments are also encouraging the adoption of EV vehicles. For instance, as part of the administration's newest effort to combat climate change caused by humans, President Joe Biden issued an executive order on Wednesday that calls on the federal government to use its purchasing power to decrease its carbon emissions by about 64% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by the middle of the century. The White House will spend billions of dollars in accordance with the directive to modernize government-owned or leased facilities, increase the amount of clean energy in the nation's grid, and increase the number of electric vehicles in the federal fleet. Hence, the market revenue is set to rise over the coming years.

  • Market in the Asia Pacific region to capture the highest market share.
  • Petroleum-based segment to generate the largest share in the market.
  • Market in the North America region to have significant growth in the market.

Rising Need to Recycle Steel to Boost the Growth of the Global Needle Coke Market

Cutting down on utilization, costs, energy, and time spent mining other precious resources is one advantage of recycling steel. Depending on the way the steel is made, it generates about 2 to 3 tons of CO2 emissions on average per ton of steel. Moreover, according to estimates, the production of one ton of recycled stainless-steel waste can prevent up to about 5 tons of carbon emissions. Hence, the use of needle coke is rising. Additionally, needle coke is one of the primary heating components in an electric arc furnace (EAF) for the manufacture of steel. Steel is created by melting scrap from old automobiles or appliances.

Needle Coke Segmentation by Type

  • Petroleum-Based
  • Coal-Based

The petroleum-based segment is set to generate the highest revenue by the end of 2036. This growth of the segment is poised to rise on account of growing production of automobile which is demanding more steel. Across the globe, about 84 million motor cars were manufactured in 2022—an approximately 4% increase over 2021.

Needle Coke Segmentation by Application

  • Graphite Electrodes
  • Lithium-Ion Battery
  • Special Carbon Material

The graphite electrodes segment is projected to generate the highest market share of about 54.8% over the projected period. This could be owing to growing production of graphite electrodes. Between 2014 and 2019, the total quantity of graphite electrodes produced globally decreased from about 804,000 metric tons to close to 713,000 metric tons. However, it is anticipated that production of graphite electrode will grow globally in the upcoming years, with a predicted total of around 795,300 metric tons by 2024.
