Petroleum & Coal Products Manufacturing Industry Overview

Excerpt from Petroleum & Coal Products Manufacturing Report

Companies in this industry refine crude oil and coal into fuel, asphalt products, lubricating oils, and other products. Major companies include US-based Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Marathon, and Valero, as well as Bharat Petroleum (India), Caltex Australia, Idemitsu Kosan (Japan), Sinopec (China), and Suncor Energy (Canada), .

Competitive Landscape

Demand is driven by consumption of gasoline and diesel fuel and by construction activity. The profitability of individual companies depends on efficient operations. Larger refinery and asphalt companies enjoy economies of scale, but small companies can compete by producing specialty products that are in high demand. The US industry is highly concentrated: the 50 largest companies account for about 95% of revenue.
