Summary

Table of Contents

Isostatic graphite is a new type of graphite material developed in the 1960s. It has seen a wide range of applications in photovoltaic, electrical discharge machining, metallurgy, new nuclear power, and other fields.

In 2006, the rapid rise of global photovoltaic industry broke the original balance between supply and demand of isostatic graphite market, which promoted isostatic graphite production companies to expand capacity successively to meet the needs of photovoltaic market. China as the world’s largest producer of photovoltaic products therefore becomes a hot investment area of isostatic graphite capacity expansion and the most important product consumer market.

In 2012, the global photovoltaic industry encountered a severe overcapacity crisis, although the isostatic graphite industry maintained output growth thanks to newly-added capacity, corporate profitability declined sharply. In 2013, China introduced a series of stimulus policies to gradually recover the photovoltaic industry, and then kept the increase in demand for isostatic graphite. In 2015, the global isostatic graphite production reached around 100 kilotons.

Isostatic graphite is mainly produced by Japanese, European and American companies. Among them, Japan-based TOYO TANSO, Tokai, IBIDEN, Germany-based SGL, and France-based Mersen boast capacity of over 10 kilotons. And, SGL, Mersen and TOYO TANSO have production bases in China.

Since 2006, with the dramatic development of photovoltaic industry and fast-expanding demand for isostatic graphite in China, Mersen, SGL and other foreign companies have built factories in China, plus the ever-growing number of isostatic graphite projects invested by local companies, China’s isostatic graphite capacity has seen vigorous growth, making the country one of the important isostatic graphite producing areas in the world.

In 2015, China’s isostatic graphite production reached around 34 kilotons, but there were still about 30% of demand relying on import, mainly for large-size, fine-structure, high-end isostatic graphite products. In China, isostatic graphite is primarily used in photovoltaic industry (more than 60%), and with the nuclear power reboot in 2015, its demand for isostatic graphite increased greatly, with an estimated application ratio of 8% or so.

Major isostatic graphite production enterprises in China are Baofeng Five-star Graphite Co., Ltd., Fangda Carbon New Material Co., Ltd., and Datong Xincheng New Material Co., Ltd., which posted isostatic graphite capacity of 10 kilotons, 4 kilotons and 4 kilotons respectively in 2015. Among them, Datong Xincheng New Material Co., Ltd. put its isostatic graphite capacity into production in September 2015. Besides, there are many proposed / under-construction isostatic graphite projects in China, e.g. Fangda Carbon’s 20 kt/a isostatic graphite project.
