LONDON, December 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
CRU announces its CRU's Global Graphite Electrode Market Outlook to 2027, providing subscribers to the service with a medium-term market analysis of the recently spotlighted graphite electrode markets.
"Graphite electrodes are a key component of many metal producing processes," says Lynn Lupori, CRU's Head of Metals Consulting in North America and the Project Director. "Given the state of turmoil that the market is in currently, CRU is looking to provide a comprehensive view of the market and its outlook to subscribers in its upcoming Graphite Electrode Market Outlook. This Outlook, prepared by our industry experts, will provide some clarity in this volatile market."
Graphite electrodes are a key input for electric arc steel-making and ladle refinement of steel, as well as play an important role in other metals industries, and their market shortage has created huge uncertainty in the global steel industry in recent months. Significant price escalation and material shortages have occurred due to a number of factors such as raw material supply and increased demand. Consumers have reported price escalations of 10 times usual prices, as well as changes in payment terms and overall availability of materials.
CRU's Global Graphite Electrode Market Outlook service will outline:
- The current market conditions for graphite electrodes and key raw material inputs (particularly needle coke)
- An outlook for prices and availability over the next 12-24 months
- A longer term view of price trends and supply / demand dynamics which will likely impact the market over the next 10 years
This service is produced by CRU's team of experts in London, Pittsburgh, Mumbai and Beijing to provide an independent and detailed outlook to support industry participants in their market activity and strategic planning.
