In November, coal tar pitch companies were also affected by environmental inspections. The operating rate dropped slightly, and there was news that the coal pitch companies in the Winter Olympic Games might suspend production for nearly two months. Therefore, the production pressure of coal tar pitch companies is very high. The start of asphalt enterprises basically maintained at around 65%. In the downstream graphite electrode market, its procurement is basically on-demand, and the supply and demand of the anode material company market is relatively strong. According to the reaction of coal tar pitch companies, the market price of coal tar pitch will continue to fluctuate between 5800-6000 yuan/ton with a high probability in the short term.

During the period, enterprises in Hebei, Henan, Shanxi, Shandong and other regions received the Winter Olympics "Notice on the Implementation of Production Regulation in the Carbon Industry".

However, many customers reported this month that investigations in heavily polluted areas such as Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Shanxi, Henan, etc. have become more frequent, which has had a certain impact on the production of local graphite electrode companies. It is a common phenomenon to temporarily stop for half a day or a few days. Later control will become more stringent. Therefore, as the Winter Olympics approach in the later period, the control measures will become more stringent.
