According to Business Market Insights’ research, the North America solid fuel market was valued at US$ 67,465.56 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 72,950.93 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 1.3% from 2022 to 2028. Rising demand for petcoke and establishment of refineries driving use of coal are the critical factors attributed to the North America solid fuel market expansion.  

In June 2022, the IEA oil market report predicted that net global refining capacity would expand by an extra 1.6 million b/d in 2023. The expansion or new refining capacity growth consists of various high-capacity refinery projects underway. Therefore, the expansion of refineries would increase the use of solid fuels, which is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the solid fuels market during the forecast period. Current refineries and combinations of refinery by-products and coal are used to produce an array of end products such as gasoline, carbon anodes, jet fuel, and heating oil. With many refineries, the demand for coal as an energy source has increased. Three out of the ten biggest oil refining companies across the world are in North America. The US, have the largest oil refinery capacities. The presence of a large number of refineries drives the demand for solid fuels, bolstering the solid fuels market growth.  

On the contrary, availability of coal substitutes hurdles the growth of North America solid fuel market. 

Based on fuel type, North America solid fuel market is segmented into petcoke/flexicoke, anthracite, metallurgical coke, and coal. The metallurgical coke segment held 43.1% market share in 2022, amassing US$ 29,088.12 million. It is projected to garner US$ 25,141.01 million by 2028 to expand at -2.4% CAGR during 2022–2028.
