Who is the largest producer of graphite electrodes?
Graphite electrodes are a critical component in the steelmaking process, used to melt scrap steel in electric arc furnaces. They are made from high-purity graphite and are essential for the production of steel. As demand for steel continues to grow worldwide, the demand for graphite electrodes is also on the rise. 

So, who is the largest producer of graphite electrodes? 

China was the largest producer of graphite electrodes. China accounted for more than 60% of global graphite electrode production.

China's dominance in the graphite electrode market can be attributed to a few key factors. 

Firstly, China has abundant graphite reserves, which provide a reliable and cost-effective source of raw material for the production of graphite electrodes. Additionally, China has invested heavily in its steel industry, with the government providing significant support for domestic producers. This has allowed Chinese companies to build advanced graphite electrode production facilities and expand their operations to meet growing demand.
