Our exclusive content
- An in-depth look at the CO2 issue, which is now becoming the most important area of concern, particularly in the EU where carbon taxes are coming into place
- The technological developments which are pushing the coke industry forward
- China plays the dominant role in global steel, pig iron and coke production and has been the leader in the merchant met coke market, but which country follows?
With the changing landscape, the impact of new technologies on the met coke market is examined throughout this report. The blast furnace sector is taking a greater rather than a smaller share of the global steel market, although the alternative electric furnace sector is increasing in importance in the developed regions of North America and Europe. While interesting progress is being made in alternative hot metal production methods, the cumulative impact of these over the next five years will be small.
Global coke production is expected to decrease in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 crisis but then to recover to pre-2020 levels in 2022 with little change through 2025.
