GRAFTECH: Graphite electrode prices will rise by 17-20% in the first quarter

According to overseas media reports, the CEO of GRAFTECH, a major global graphite electrode manufacturer, recently stated that the graphite electrode market situation continued to improve in the fourth quarter of 2021, and the price of graphite electrodes in non-long-term associations rose by 10% compared with the third quarter. It is expected that these positive trends will continue until 2022.

Driven by recent global inflationary pressures, the cost of graphite electrodes will continue to rise in 2022, especially for third-party needle coke, energy and freight costs. GRAFTECH expects graphite electrode prices to increase by 17%-20% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the fourth quarter of last year. “
