As early as the 1930s, China’s Jixi willow in Heilongjiang Province and Shandong Nanhu graphite mine started the production and processing of graphite. At that time beneficiation process is simple, poor working conditions, low productivity, annual output of only a few thousand tons. After decades of development, the output of Graphite Manufacture and carbon products in China has risen rapidly. From 2004 to 2011, the compound annual growth rate of graphite and carbon products reached 22.12%. In 2011, the output of graphite and carbon products in China was 25,561,700 tons, an increase of 21.98% over the same period of last year.
Carbon Graphite products with excellent performance, more widely used, production and efficiency showed a rapid growth trend. In 2011, China’s graphite and carbon products industry has developed rapidly. Enterprises in the industry have higher management and control over cost and expenses, and have stronger profitability. National Bureau of Statistics data show that in 2011, China’s graphite and carbon products industry to achieve 167.564 billion yuan of total industrial output value; sales revenue 167.765 billion yuan, an increase of 40.58%; total profit of 10.959 billion yuan, an increase of 50.87%. With the continuous promotion of applications, the competition in China’s graphite and carbon products industry is becoming more and more fierce.
