Graphite Suppliers

Graphite suppliers - working hard to meet demand

Graphite suppliers have long grown accustomed to the highs and lows of the ever-changing international graphite market. In the 1990s graphite was in plentiful supply and prices were low, but since then a combination of supply-side challenges and ever-increasing demand has radically altered this dynamic. China terminated a fifth of its flake graphite production since the mines were unable to meet modern environmental standards. It is also in the process of consolidating 230 mines down to 20, although the impact on production is less than it sounds. Additionally, the demand for graphite makes it more attractive to conduct mining operations for deeper deposits.
