Calcined Anthracite Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Pulverized coal injection (blast furnace) held the largest share in the calcined anthracite market in 2020 and is forecast to rise at a CAGR of 6.5%. Pulverized Coal Injection (PCI) is a process that involves blowing large volumes of fine calcined anthracite granules into the blast furnace (BF). This offers a supplementary supply of carbon to speed up the production of metallic iron, thus reducing the need to manufacture coke. Since the oil crisis, heavy oil was superseded by pulverized coal. This made it possible to use cheap coal, such as calcined anthracite coal. Furthermore, the volume of coke used can be decreased if significant volumes of pulverized calcined anthracite coal are pumped. Therefore, in recent years, pulverized coal injection (PCI) systems are used in order to lower the production costs as well as extend the life cycle of coke ovens. Thus, the rising demand for calcined anthracite in the pulverized coal injection (blast furnace) application is expected to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

Calcined Anthracite Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry

Iron and Steel sector held the largest share of more than 25% in the calcined anthracite market in 2020. Rising demand for calcined anthracite in the steel making process and in electric furnaces and pulverized coal injection applications has raised the growth of the market. In steel manufacturing, calcined anthracite application decreases the consumption of high-cost metallurgical coke, thus lowering the total cost of production. According to the Ministry of Steel, production of finished steel registered an increase of 3.7% in October 2020 over September 2020 and 1.0% over same month of the last year i.e., October 2019. Hence with the rising production of steel the market for calcined anthracite is estimated to see an upsurge over the forecast period.

Calcined Anthracite Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The Asia Pacific region held the largest share of more than 38% in the calcined anthracite market in 2020.

Calcined Anthracite Market Drivers

Superior Properties of Calcium Anthracite than Traditional Coal Products will Drive the Market Growth.

Compared to conventional coal products, calcined anthracite provides a higher carbon percentage and low ash, moisture, and volatile matter content. As a result, calcined anthracite has gained a strong demand in the manufacture of steel and other metals, a process that involves coal with very low impurity and moisture content. Electrically calcined anthracite coal (ECA) has higher carbon content than traditional anthracite coal and comparatively higher thermal and electrical conductivity. As the coal that is most exposed to heat and pressure is very compressed and strong. Therefore, relative to the softer, geologically 'newer' coal, it possesses greater ability to generate heat energy. Also, calcined anthracite consists of the highest degree of non metamorphic coalification due to which it is widely preferred. Thus, owing to such properties the demand for calcined anthracite is estimated to rise in the forecast period.

Rising Production of Aluminum will Lead Towards the Growth of the Market

Due to its high purity and quality, electrically calcined anthracite is widely used as a smelting additive in the aluminum industry. Rising demand and the production of aluminum products has drived the demand for calcined anthracite. Moreover, with the growing aluminum industry due to the easy availability of raw materials the growth of the calcined anthracite market is also anticipated to rise in various regions. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, domestic primary aluminum production was 92,000 metric tons(t) in January 2020. Also, the average daily production was 2,980 t in January 2020, relatively unchanged from that in December 2019, but 40 percent more than in January 2018. As per the International Aluminium Institute, in December 2020, 5,693 thousand metric tonnes of aluminium was produced of which China was the major producer with 3,300 thousand metric tonnes. Thus, the rising production and demand for aluminum is expected to drive the calcined anthracite market growth during the forecast era.
