graphite electrode nipples
The price of graphite electrode nipples continues to rise, and the supply and demand of ultra-high graphite electrode nipples are tight
Recently, the price of domestic ultra-high power graphite electrode nipples has been slightly increased. As of press time, the mainstream price of domestic ultra-high power electrode φ450 is 2-20,500 yuan/ton, and the mainstream price of φ600 market is 25,000 yuan/ton. Market demand is good, mainstream graphite electrode nipples manufacturers have increased orders, small and medium-sized electrode inventories are particularly tight, supply and demand are good, domestic ultra-high power graphite electrode nipples prices continue to rise slightly.
In the downstream, CGM New Materials Co., Ltd. surveyed 95 independent electric arc furnace steel mills across the country. According to data, the operating rate of electric arc furnaces was 71.09%, up 0.78% on a week-on-week basis and 18.5% year-on-year; for traditional steel mills, CGM New Materials The blast furnace operating rate of 247 steel mills was investigated at 77.86%, an increase of 0.39% from last week, and a decrease of 7.42% from the same period last year; the utilization rate of blast furnace ironmaking capacity was 86.94%, a month-on-month increase of 0.02%, and a year-on-year increase of 1.43%. The profit rate of steel plants was 90.48%. , An increase of 1.3% month-on-month and 1.3% year-on-year.
The continuous disturbance of environmental protection production restrictions on the supply side has further strengthened the supply and demand gap and expectations in the steel market, and the price trend of finished products has been strong, which has a positive impact on the demand for downstream electrodes. In terms of raw materials, needle coke: the low inventory of imported needle coke ports has further pushed up domestic needle coke prices; for petroleum coke, prices remained high and fluctuated, and the demand side maintained on-demand procurement. Due to the decline in domestic petroleum coke supply in April, graphite The cost of electrode nipples may rise again.
