Global Coal Tar Pitch Market: Snapshot 

The global coal tar pitch market is experiencing a steady growth and is estimated to grow steadily over the forecast period, all thanks to the stable rise in requirement for steel and aluminum. The fast-paced development of infrastructure in the developing nations has shot up the need for both these metals.  

Coal-tar pitch is nothing but a thick black liquid that stays following the distillation of coal tar. Coal-tar pitch is a byproduct in the making of solid fuel, coke that comprise mostly coal gas and carbon. It is utilized as a binder in asphalt products, in roofing and paving, and as a base for coatings and paint. Both coal-tar pitch and coal tar have many different chemical compounds, inclusive of carcinogens such as benzene. However, coal tar pitch could be hazardous to the environment, particularly for aquatic organisms, and might result in long- term effects.
