DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 1, 2018--The “Graphite Electrode Industry Report - Structural Changes Driving Growth till 2020” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Graphite Electrode industry went through a strong turnaround in 2017 due to a change in the demand supply dynamics of the industry. The industry was experiencing a down cycle over the past 5 years due to a situation of excess capacity and weak demand strength. Analysis indicates that the current trends in the steel industry in China is the largest factor that set off this transition in the industry.
