Graphite Electrode Prices Trend in Early October 2021

After the Chinese National Day, the market prices of petroleum coke, needle coke, and graphite electrodes have risen.

The price of petroleum coke was adjusted across the board on the first day after the national holiday. Daqing Petrochemical 1#A, Fushun Petrochemical 1# rose 200 yuan/ton(4.55%), both reported at 4600 yuan/ton. Jinxi Petrochemical 1#B rose 400 yuan/ton(9.52%), to 4600 yuan/ton.

Driven by the rising of raw materials cost, the transaction price of needle coke has generally increased by 500-1000 yuan/ton from September, and the inventory situation of all production enterprises has remained low. In addition, recent purchase orders from overseas electrode companies have also begun to increase. Considering the increase in freight costs and other factors, the current export quotation of needle coke is 1800-2000 US dollars/ton.

The quotations of graphite electrodes after the festival showed a slight increase, with an average increase of 500-1,000 yuan/ton. The mainstream price of UHP450mm electrode which with 30% needle coke content on the market is 185-1.9 million yuan/ton. The price of UHP600mm is 22,000-24,000 yuan/ton, UHP700mm 28,000-30000 yuan/ton.

During the national holiday, heavy rainfall in Shanxi and other places has greatly affected the traffic. However, the overall damage level is less than the previous rainfall in Henan. The production of local graphite electrode companies has not been affected for the time being, but transportation is expected to be delayed by about a week. In September, under the dual control of energy consumption, 18 key graphite electrode manufacturers in China produced 47,800 tons of graphite electrodes, a decrease of 11.8% month-on-month and 18.8% year-on-year. This situation will continue in the later period.
