Report Description

Coal Briquettes Market
Coal Briquettes Market

Global Coal Briquettes Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 5% during the forecast period Coal briquettes are made up of compressed wastes such as bamboo, sawdust, forest waste, wood shaving, and others and produce a high BTU of about 8100 per pound. Coal briquettes are used as the desirable fuel due to the lower smoke, longer durability, higher thermal energy as well as lower ash content, and uniform shape. Due to their increasing use in industrial and commercial heating applications, as well as rising industry demand, coal briquettes have seen increased demand in recent years attributed to their lower density, lower moisture content, and higher efficiency along with the higher thermal calorific value. Also, rapid industrialization and growth in the manufacturing sector & metallurgy industry among others are expected to support market growth. Additionally, the absence of sulfur in the coal briquettes, ease of storage & transportation, and lower purchasing & operational expenses compared to its counterpart are anticipated to drive the market expansion during the forecast period.

Sun Company, Snesmi Techno Pvt. Ltd., Coal Hut, Milward Alloys Inc., Dauber Co., Milazzo Industries, Cowboy Charcoal Brand, VESP Energy, Duraflame Inc., and Paraguay Charcoal are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst composition, wood charcoal category to witness higher growth during the forecast period”

Based on the composition, the market is segmented into coal dust, sawdust, wood charcoal, wood chips, peat & paper, and others. The wood charcoal segment is expected to witness significant market growth during the forecast period owing to the lower cost of production and higher availability. Additionally, the increased use in the food & beverage industry and higher calorific value, lesser smoke, and lower ignition temperature compared to its alternative product are likely to support the market expansion during the projection period. Furthermore, wood charcoal has a porous nature that allows it to absorb gases and liquids on its surface and is extensively used in gas masks, water filters, and anti-gastric tablets or powder, and it is expected to have significant market growth in the future.

“Amongst application, the metallurgy segment to hold a significant CAGR in the market in 2020”

Based on the application, the market is bifurcated into food processing, metallurgy, and others. The metallurgy segment is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to the higher demand for the different types of metal in the industries. The other factor opening up the profit potential for coal briquettes for heating and other applications is the rising cost of alternative fuels like HSD, gasoline, and gases which are expected to drive up demand for coal briquettes.

“Asia-Pacific to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, Asia-Pacific held a significant share of the global coal briquettes market. This is mainly due to the rapid industrialization and growing food & beverage industries in the region coupled with the increasing disposable income of the individual. Additionally, the market growth is expected to be supported by the region’s increasing urbanization and expanding sectors like silicon, iron, and steel manufacturing, among others. Also, the price volatility of substitute products and stringent government norms for carbon emission such as automated monitoring of the emission through CEMS (Continuous Emission Monitoring System) will support market growth in the coming time. Furthermore, market growth is expected to be supported by technological improvement, rising investment, and expanding R&D activities. For instance, in July 2019, Bar-Be-Quick launched eco-friendly wood-free briquettes manufactured by the coconut husk, mango stone, and corn store and could be used as an alternative to wood charcoal as they are odorless and chemical-free.
