Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’ s team said: “Exploring opportunities in highgrowth sector will be a key trend for market growth. Growth in infrastructure and construction, oil and
gas industry, and automotive industries varies in countries that have shown robust growth rates for
steel consumption. In terms of steel demand, infrastructure and construction remain the dominant
sectors. Most of the growth in the automotive industry will come from China, the US, Brazil, India, and
Japan. China's automotive sector is expected to grow significantly, as lightweight vehicle production
concept is on the go. Increasing capital expenditure on upstream gas and oil offers a significant
opportunity to provide anti-corrosive, high-value products for oil wells and pipelines. Growing demand
for steel in diverse industries could boost the use of EAF, thereby increasing the demand for graphite

According to the report, growth in end-user industries will be a key driver for market growth. The
automotive, mechanical machinery, and infrastructure and construction industries are the main users of
steel and have been driving the steel demand for many years. The infrastructure and construction
sector, which accounts for more than 51.53% of the world steel consumption, is expected to post a
CAGR of 7.6 % until 2020. Similarly, the machinery and automotive industries, which account for roughly
14.84% and 12% of the global steel consumption in 2015 respectively, are poised to grow at a higher
rate during the forecast period. This will lead to a constant increase in steel demand over the next few
years, thereby fueling the growth of graphite electrodes.
Further, the report states that one of the challenges for the market will be hazardous occupational
exposure to the workers. The mortality rate of manufacturing workers has increased over recent years
due to exposure to hazardous materials. The manufacturing of graphite electrode leads workers to get
exposed to coal tar and other materials containing silica and graphite dusts, polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons (PAH), and asbestos. Exposure of workers in a graphite electrode facility to coal tar
pitches, crystalline silica, carcinogenic agents, and PAH consisting of benzopyrene, benzanthracene, and
dibenzanthracene, could lead to increased risk of bladder and lung cancers. An investigation was
conducted to investigate the mortality rate of workers in a graphite electrode manufacturing facility,
which concluded that the workers had an excess mortality rate with liver cancer and cirrhosis, and other
chronic diseases of the liver.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information
including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and
vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

About Graphite
Graphite is a crystalline form of carbon, which is a semimetal and a native element mineral. It is
considered as one of the allotropes of carbon, and has distinct structure and properties. Graphite is the
highest grade of coal, and has stable form of carbon under standard conditions. It has characteristics of
metal and non-metal with high thermal and electrical conductivity. It is highly refractory and chemically
inert with less absorption of neutrons and X-rays that enables it to be used as the main material in
nuclear applications.
Technavio’ s analysts forecast the global graphite electrodes market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during
the period 2016-2020.
