The analysts forecast global graphite electrodes market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2016-2020. According to the 2016 graphite electrodes market report, growth in end-user industries will be a key driver for market growth. The automotive, mechanical machinery, and infrastructure and construction industries are the main users of steel and have been driving the steel demand for many years. The infrastructure and construction sector, which accounts for more than 51.53% of the world steel consumption, is expected to post a CAGR of 7.6 % until 2020. Similarly, the machinery and automotive industries, which account for roughly 14.84% and 12% of the global steel consumption in 2015 respectively, are poised to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This will lead to a constant increase in steel demand over the next few years, thereby fueling the growth of graphite electrodes.

Graphite electrodes are largely used in EAF to manufacture steel. These electrodes act as conductors of electricity in the furnace and generate heat to melt scrap metal such as iron ore and other raw materials that are used in steel production. Graphite electrodes are the only products that have a high electrical conductivity and the capability to sustain high levels of heat in an EAF to produce steel. They are an essential part of steel production in EAF, and they do not have any commercially viable substitute.

Globally, the demand for UHP graphite electrodes is anticipated to account for around 67% of the total graphite electrodes market by 2020. UHP electrodes are used mainly in steel smelting process of large capacity EAF and in ladle refining furnace. These electrodes are impregnated with special pitch in the furnace to increase strength and density. These electrodes possess several characteristics such as low electrical resistivity, high-temperature resistance, coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), and ultra-high bending resistance, which will significantly propel their usage in the coming years.

The following companies are the key players in the global graphite electrodes market: GrafTech International, Graphite India, SGL Carbon, Showa Denko Carbon, and Nippon Carbon. Other prominent vendors in the market are: HEG, Kaifeng Carbon, Nantong Yangzi Carbon, Schutz Carbon Electrodes, and Tokai Carbon.
