COVID-19 Impact on Needle Coke Market

Since the COVID-19 viral outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to nearly every country on the planet, prompting the World Health Organization to declare it a public health emergency. The needle coke market has experienced a slowdown as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Poor market mood has cut demand for products and services, causing manufacturing activity at steel plants to halt, resulting in a decrease in needle coke use. Manufacturers in the market are using plug-and-play technology to produce needle coke in response to consumer demand. Because the risk of new COVID-19 variants is high, they are employing contingency planning to anticipate the uncertainties that will arise as a result of the pandemic.

Recent Development

  • In February 2020, The Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation (IMIDRO) and the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) struck an agreement to produce sponge and needle coke in the two refineries (Bandar Abbas and Imam Khomeini). Iran is planned to manufacture 700,000 tons of sponge and needle coke per year from these two petroleum coke producing complexes (620,000 tons of needle coke in Bandar Abbas Refinery). The completion of these two projects is projected to take three years.
