CW Research: India March High-Sulfur Imported Petcoke Prices Increase 5%+

March prices of high-sulfur imported petcoke increased by more than 5 percent MoM for both CFR East and West coasts of India, according to CW Research’s March update of India Petcoke CFR price assessment. Meanwhile, the price of mid-sulfur imported petcoke decreased by more than 2 percent MoM on both coasts.

Greenwich, CT, April 16, 2016 --( The monthly update sees the average cost of burning high sulfur petcoke on per unit of calorific value basis at a discount of 39 percent as compared to $1.25 per ton of Richards Bay coal for West Coast.

“Demand for high sulfur petcoke from Indian buyers is very strong at the moment. However, since USGC refiners are not willing to sell at lower FOB prices, many Indian buyers are looking for better offers, and are ready to wait rather than buy at current high prices,” says Sushmita Rai, Sr. Associate Analyst, CW Group.

According to CW Research analysts, cement demand in India is expected to remain strong for the next two months. Currently, cement plants in India are operating at utilization rate of about 65-75 percent, thereby increasing the demand for petcoke in the country.

Notably, petcoke imports by cement companies accounted for 61.0 percent of the total petcoke volume imported by India in the month of February, as compared to 84.0 percent registered in January. The CW Research team sees a 6.0 percent decrease in freight rates for bulk shipments as compared to last month.
