Graphite Suppliers

Graphite suppliers - dealing with the delicacies of pricing

The laws of supply and demand affect graphite suppliers as much as everyone else. In the 1990s the ready, indeed, vast supply of graphite, led to extremely low prices. While this offered the short-term advantage of reducing manufacturing costs, it also made it uneconomical to conduct more complex mining operations, such as retrieving deeper deposits. Indeed, during this time some graphite mines actually closed. Now that the graphite surplus has been exhausted and demand is high, the corresponding rise in prices is an inducement for miners to start exploring deeper deposits which often require greater upfront investment in the extraction process.
