The increasing demand for UHP graphite electrodes is one of the major reasons for the needle coke market growth. UHP graphite electrodes are gaining immense traction in the steel industry. They are mainly used in UHP EAFs with the current density ranging from 19 amperes per square centimeter to 43 A/cm2. Large capacity UHP EAFs are being used as they have low cost and high work efficiency. UHP graphite electrodes possess excellent dimension stability and high resistance toward deformation, spalling, cracking, oxidation, and thermal shock. As the UHP graphite electrodes are made using needle coke, the increase in the adoption of UHP electrodes will drive the consumption of needle coke.

Emergence of Green Steel will be a Key Market Trend

The consumption of fossil fuel for the production of steel contributes to carbon dioxide emissions, which has become a major issue faced by the global steel industry. To resolve this issue, several R&D activities have been undertaken, which have led to the emergence of green steel. Several steel-making methods have been developed to reduce CO2 emissions, which include pulverized coal injection, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. This will increase the production of steel worldwide, which in turn, will boost the demand for needle coke for producing graphite electrodes.
