Graphite electrode, which is primarily used in steel production via Electronic Arc Furnace (EAF), saw a massive wave in its prices in the past one year. This was due to an unexpected divergence in the demand-supply dynamics. In the last 4-5 years, the global graphite electrode industry reeled from overcapacity. This led to weak graphite electrode prices as the demand, which depends on steel production through the EAF route, was down due to slow demand growth, excessive supply from China, and higher EAF steel production cost as opposed to Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) route.
In terms of revenue, the global graphite electrode market was valued at US$ 6,564.2 million in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 11,356.4 million by 2027 with a CAGR of 9.9% from 2020 to 2027.

The Graphite electrode market operates in a highly fragmented and competitive marketplace. As leading companies in this market continue to broaden its addressable market, by expanding its current offerings, diversifying its client base, all the prominent players face an increasing level of competition. Several companies in the market are developing new products in order to maintain their position in the market and provide efficient products to their customers. For instance, in October 2018, Nippon Suisan Kaisha, Ltd. announced that the company entered into an agreement with Seafarms Group Ltd. (SFG) to acquire 14.99% of its outstanding issued share by the issue of new shares for US$25 million.
Graphite Electrode Market: Regional analysis includes:
However, the supply and demand witnessed a significant shift by June 2017, with the market demand exceeding the supply, mostly in China. An abrupt change in the industry’s fortune was primarily driven by China’s environmental control policy, which led to a phase-out of old, less efficient and polluting units (across industries). The rule hit China’s steel and graphite electrode manufacturing companies, and approximately 170 million tonnes of steel capacity (~15% of China’s total installed capacity) and nearly 200,000 tonnes of graphite electrode manufacturing capacity sealed during the period 2016-2017. This had a significant impact on the global graphite electrode industry.
