Analysis of current electrolysis with graphite electrodes market status

At present, the market price of electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country is now at a relatively low level, and it is unlikely that all of them will continue to fall sharply. From early June to the present, the mainstream transaction prices of electrolysis with graphite electrodes of ultra-high, medium and small specifications and ultra-large specifications are mainly stable. There is little change in the whole. Some low-price orders are mainly affected by the furnace conditions of the bidding steel mills, which require extensive performance parameters for electrolysis with graphite electrodes, so there are differences in prices, which are a single phenomenon.

my country’s production value of electrolysis with graphite electrodes from January to May 2020

According to statistics, the output value of 42 domestic electrolysis with graphite electrodes enterprises in May 2020 was 60,700 tons, a decrease of 2300 tons from April, a decrease of 3.65%, and a decrease of 8,600 tons from the same period last year, a decrease of 12.41%.

The operating rate of electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country in May 2020

In May, the output value of electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country declined, and the operating rate dropped. Because the overall operation of electrolysis with graphite electrodes is relatively weak, the price of steel mills continues to decline during the bidding process, which is seriously lower than the production cost of electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies. Therefore, some electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies choose to reduce production or suspend some processes to control them. Production rhythm.

Current status of electrolysis with graphite electrodes market in my country

The production capacity is large, and the stock inventory is relatively high. The stock of shopping malls is relatively high, especially super-high. The main reason is that due to the impact of shopping malls in 2019, the intense demand in Middle Eastern countries has led to excessive production. Coupled with the weakening of domestic electric furnace steel market and export market demand affected by the epidemic in 2020, prices have fallen rapidly.

The price is low, below the cost line. Calculated with coal pitch 2270 yuan/ton and processing fee yuan/ton, oil-based needle coke costs about 6,000 yuan/ton, and the cost is about yuan/ton, and coal-based needle coke costs 5,000 yuan/ton, and the cost is about yuan/ton. Ton. At present, the price of some ultra-high electrolysis with graphite electrodes in China is now lower than this cost line.

Electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies control the production rhythm, and a single company stops production and clears inventory. At present, most electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies control their output value to a minimum to prevent ineffective production and increase inventory pressure. Some small and medium-sized electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies have not started work since the beginning of the year, and they have mainly sorted their inventory; others have chosen to suspend pressing and other processes to effectively organize their online inventory.

Set production by sales and sell at lock-in price. Affected by the weak operation of shopping malls, electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies now adopt a strategy of determining production based on sales, ensuring a reasonable circulation of inventory and formulating production plans based on order status. At the same time, because of the price confusion in shopping malls, some companies choose to sell at lock-in prices, and no longer ship products below the company’s cost price.

Favorable policies to build a national electric furnace steelmaking base. In recent years, the state has increased the development of the electric furnace steel industry. During the National Two Sessions in 2020, electric furnace steel was mentioned again. Liu Bingjiang, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and Director of the Department of Atmospheric Environment Management of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said: The “scattered and polluted” enterprises and clusters of the “haze” have transformed the long-chain processes of steel companies in the “haze nest” into short-chain processes, using domestic and foreign steel scrap as a resource to replace iron ore, and building a national electric furnace steelmaking base.” From a long-term perspective, the positive development of the electric furnace steel market will definitely drive the electrolysis with graphite electrodes market to rebound again.

Market outlook for electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country

At present, the overall operating conditions of the electrolysis with graphite electrodes market in my country are relatively stable. Since the electrolysis with graphite electrodes market has continued to decline after the Spring Festival, the main factor for the decline is still caused by oversupply. But now the market price of electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country has reached an unstoppable level. The electrolysis with graphite electrodes companies have no desire to lower prices, but there are still sporadic low-priced orders disrupting the market, so the market for electrolysis with graphite electrodes is still stable. It will take a while. Therefore, it is expected that in June, the price of a single order in electrolysis with graphite electrodes in my country may have a narrow downward adjustment, and the fluctuation will be 300-500 yuan/ton.
