2018 graphite electrode comeback

[Abstract]:
Since the beginning of 2017, graphite electrodes have ushered in the “spring” of the market and the prices have been rising all the time.
Since the beginning of 2017, graphite electrodes have ushered in the “spring” of the market and the prices have been rising all the time. The reasons can be summarized as follows:
First, the weak international economic recovery a few years ago, the domestic economic growth slowed down, the economic environment is not good. The second is the steel industry to eliminate production capacity, ban the “Grid Steel,” and strictly control environmental protection indicators. Some intermediate frequency electric furnace to electric furnace, part of the electric furnace have been discontinued have been re-production.Third, with the increasing emphasis on environmental protection, the relevant state departments to take a series of measures to reduce emissions haze and protect the environment. Fourthly, in the international market, the gap of graphite electrodes is larger. Fifth, the graphite electrode process and the production cycle is relatively long, generally 4 to 5 months of the production cycle is rising raw material prices, production costs rise rapidly. Seven is the production of graphite electrode raw materials --- needle coke and low-sulfur petroleum coke tight, in short supply.
