There are various products made of graphite used in steel and related industries. Some products such as graphite electrodes have recently been the focal point of attention amongst purchasing managers and technicians alike. Certain companies with deep insights into the graphite market gained a competitive edge since they were able to react to a moody and fluctuating industry.
