Top 10 graphite electrode manufacturers in the Global Graphite Electrodes Market
The market vendors faced a threat from Chinese graphite electrode manufacturers that were exporting products at relatively lower rates, and ensure the high quality of products.
The global electric arc furnace (EAF) steel production was 405.94 million metric tons in 2015, representing 25% of the total world’s steel production. The EAF steel production capacity utilization rate follows the trend of overall steel industry.
The global graphite electrode market is highly competitive with the presence of several global and regional vendors. There is high competition among vendors, which has resulted in lowered prices and anti-dumping duty act in WTO member countries. In contrast, the demand for graphite electrode has increased over the few years, leading to increased usage in EAF for steel scrap and metal melting processes. This has further strengthened the competition among the vendors.
