Roadshow - China / 道路施工 - 中国
Let SteelMint take you on the road in China to provide ground zero access to Graphite Electrodes and Needle Coke plants and help you gather firsthand information.
In end-2017, the clampdown on 300,000 tonnes of inefficient graphite electrode capacity in China triggered severe shortage of graphite electrodes globally, which further led prices to shoot up, even as steelmakers scrambled to secure supplies.
However, the significance of recent announcements of capacity enhancement in China has been grossly downplayed by a section of the industry, with the prevailing opinion being that Chinese plants, inexperienced newcomers as they are, either can’t manufacture UHP electrodes nor do not have the required high-specification needle coke.
But this couldn’t be farther from the truth. As a cloud of ambiguity and lack of information hangs on the minds of prospective investors and buyers regarding the real market scenario in China, SteelMint comes up with this unique plant visit initiative for foreign investors to assess the ground realities.
So, hit the road with SteelMint to gather a more holistic view of the graphite electrode and needle coke plants in China.
