The Coke and steel market has witnessed turbulent times in the last three years which has continuously seen erosion of coke prices while there has been escalation in coal prices.
Added to this, there was dumping of metallurgical coke by various Chinese companies on account of industrial slowdown in China also led to glut of coke in India thus contributing to fall in coke prices in Indian market. Further the Rupee losing its value and depreciated by about 30% (i.e. Rs.60/$ from Rs.45/$) during the past 3 years had worsened the situation. Delay in infrastructure projects implementation directly hit the steel industry and due to this, its impact on coke was severe. Further, part of the years production were affected due to by shortage of Coal in view of certain Import Constraints.
With the advent of the new government Infra structure Projects have also been announced and several other Project expected to announce and Import duties have been rationalised which we hope the same might puts the Coal and coke industry on the development path.
