The carbon industry is an important raw material industry in the country. Due to its excellent characteristics, it is widely used in metallurgy, chemical industry, machinery manufacturing, aerospace, wind, solar, nuclear power and other fields.
The carbon industry also concentrates on the production of graphite electrodes, so according to the ranking of the carbon industry, we can get the ranking of graphite electrode manufacturers.
According to incomplete statistics from the China Carbon Industry Association, the output of graphite electrodes from January to December 2018 was 650,000 tons, an increase of 17.83% compared with the same period of the previous year. The sales volume of graphite electrodes was 587,000 tons, a growth rate of 6.77% compared with the same period of the previous year. From January to December 2018, the inventory of graphite electrodes was 73,000 tons, an increase of 1.63% compared with the same period of the previous year.
From the perspective of the competitive landscape, the industry is still in a stage of decentralized competition. Fangda Carbon leads the development of the industry, but the industry concentration still needs to be improved, and industry competition will become fierce in the future.
According to data released by the China Carbon Association, Fangda Carbon’s product sales revenue and export earnings will rank first in 2020. Jilin Carbon and Liaoning Dantan followed closely behind.
