Graphite Electrode Market Insights

Graphite Electrode Market size was valued at USD 3.2 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 3.43 billion in 2023 to USD 5.85 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.45% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

Large, cylindrical structures made of petroleum, coal tar pitch, and needle coke are called graphite electrodes. These electrodes are used to melt scrap metal and turn electrical energy into heat. Low electrical resistance and great heat conductivity characterize it. Thus, these electrodes are capable of producing heat up to 1600 degrees Celsius. These qualities allow them to be employed in steel production processes such as electric arc furnaces and blast oxygen furnaces. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3% over the course of the forecast period as a result of the sharp rise in demand for steel.

Due to its characteristics, including their high mechanical strength, advantageous electrical properties, low impurity concentration, strong vibrational resistance, and chemical stability, the demand for steel has increased. The market has recently undergone changes that have taken into account the demand for reusing scrap materials like old cars. The market players have several chances as a result of the adoption of the reuse and recycling approach for metals. The global market has benefited from the use of graphite electrodes for recycling scrap.

US Graphite Electrode Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Graphite Electrode Market Segmental Analysis

The Global Graphite Electrode Market is segmented based on electrode grade, application, and region. Based on Electrode Grade, it is categorized into Ultra High Power (UHP), High Power (SHP), and Regular Power (RP). Based on Application, it is categorized into Steel and Nonferrous Metals, Fused Materials, Inverted, Chemical Processing, Electric Arc Furnace (EAF), Ladle Furnace (LF), Basic Oxygen Furnace, and Non-steel Application. Based on region, Graphite Electrode Market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, The Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Graphite Electrode Market Analysis by Electrode Grade

On the basis of electrode grade, the ultra-high power (UHP) segment is expected to lead the global market over the forecast period. In 2021, the ultra-high-power segment accounted for the biggest market share of these electrodes. The electric arc furnace (EAF) industry recycles steel using ultra-high power graphite electrodes. High-value needle coke, which is made from either coal tar or oil, is its principal component. They are created with threaded portions at either end and are finalized with a cylindrical shape. By employing electrode nipples in this manner, these electrodes can be put together into an electrode column. The large capacity ultra-high power arc furnaces are gaining popularity in order to meet the demands of lower cost and greater work efficiency. As a result, the market is anticipated to be dominated by ultra-high power graphite electrodes. In the market, this category is also anticipated to experience the greatest CAGR growth.

Graphite Electrode Market Dynamics

Graphite Electrode Market Drivers

Rising demand for high quality steel

  • One of the major factors propelling the expansion of the worldwide graphite electrode market is the rise in demand for high-quality steel. Steel producers have a wide range of opportunities as a result of the rapid urbanization and industrialization of both developed and emerging countries. The main global end-users of steel are the building and construction, automotive, and aviation industries, which are also driving up demand for these. The demand for graphite electrodes, a key component required in the smelting process to produce high-quality steel, may rise as a result of the increased infrastructure spending. Additionally, the global market will continue to rise throughout the projected period due to the rising demand for steel in the oil and gas sector. Because of qualities including high electrical conductivity, capacity for greater heat dissipation, and exceptional mechanical strength, they are increasingly used in the production of steel. But throughout the projection period, demand for them would expand due to the sharp rise in steel consumption from major end-users such the construction, automotive, aircraft, mechanical, and oil & gas sectors.

Graphite Electrode Market Restraints

  • The main factor limiting the growth of the global graphite electrode market is the capital-intensive nature of the industry. The market for graphite electrodes on a global scale is capital- and technology-intensive. Due to the oligopolistic character of this sector, which is capital-intensive, there is no threat from new competitors. The producers are rapidly switching from blast and ladle furnaces to EAF in this highly technologically advanced sector. For the construction of the production facilities and the use of cutting-edge technology, significant capital expenditure is needed. As a result, the industry's rising capital-intensiveness slows and limits the expansion of the worldwide graphite electrode market both now and during the course of the projection period.
