Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958269


Growing demand from end-use industry applications in developing regions and promotion of application specific grades by companies is expected to drive the graphite electrode market during the forecast period. This market has witnessed number of key developments in terms of application specific grade developments and strategic investments in emerging regions by companies to strengthen their market position in the global market. Some of the other key factors governing the market dynamics include regulatory scenario, exchange rates, environmental constraints, and so on. All these factors are expected to have a significant impact on the dynamics of graphite electrode market during the forecast period.

Graphite electrodes are big cylindrical structures made of needle powder (oil coke). For high-temperature and high-intensity applications, these electrodes are accessible in tiny or large diameters. Graphite electrodes are primarily used in electric arc furnaces for steel production. They are also used in procedures for steel refining and smelting. Properties such as elevated heat resistance, low electrical conductivity, thermal shock resistance and low chemical reactivity are expected to increase graphite electrode demand.

Segment Analysis:

UHP is expected to stay both the most dominant and the fastest-growing form of electrode. Some of the characteristics that drive the demand for UHP graphite electrode, particularly in the steel industry, are greater durability, greater thermal resistance and superior performance. All the main players in the world are mainly involved in the production of UHP graphite electrodes.

It is observed that steel presently dominates the market for graphite electrodes and is also anticipated to keep its dominance over the forthcoming years. The global manufacturing of EAF steel has been steadily increasing, which is the primary driver of the demand for graphite electrodes.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Booming Steel Scrap availability

  • Speeding up economic growth

  • Growing market for electronic unloading

  • Increasing coke prices for petroleum needles
