Due to the influence of environmental protection in June, the output of graphite electrode manufacturers in some parts of Henan and Hebei provinces has been affected to some extent. Recently, the demand for uhp450-500mm specification graphite electrode in the market is large, and the inventory of some manufacturers is on the low side. However, although the price of raw materials has increased in varying degrees, the price of graphite electrodes has some support. This week the main graphite electrode transaction price remained stable, but individual specifications graphite electrode transaction prices continued to decline, export orders shrank, part of the output into domestic sales, further increase the domestic market sales pressure. At present, in order to compete for the market share, the steel factory continuously appears the low price to win the bid in the bidding. As a whole, with the increase of domestic production and the continuous launch of the expanded graphite electrode, the domestic graphite electrode market is more abundant in spot, and the price competition among enterprises is prominent.
As of Friday, the domestic main stream of ultra-high power graphite electrode diameters (450-700mm) has a taxable price of 60,000 to 140000 yuan per ton, and the main stream of high-power graphite electrode diameter 300-500mm has a factory tax price of 50,000 to 80,000 yuan per ton. Ordinary power graphite electrode diameter 300-500mm mainstream factory includes the tax price 30, 000-45000 yuan / ton. Analysis, the near future see graphite electrode prices temporarily stable, low-end small factory prices are still low.
