Published: Jan 2017 | Report Code: 58303-01-17

Graphite is flexible and has both metallic and non-metallic properties making it suitable for diverse industrial applications. The non-metallic properties include chemical inertness, high thermal resistance and lubricity, whereas metallic properties include thermal and electrical conductivity. The global graphite market is segmented into natural graphite and synthetic graphite. Based on the application global graphite market is divided into refractories, lubricants & crucible, foundry facing, batteries and others. According to industry experts, refractories is expected to remain the key driver for graphite market coupled with increasing demand for batteries and foundry facing owing to rapid industrialization especially in Asian countries. Other factors such as growing demand of graphite in steel industry, and increasing use of graphite in automotive industry, power generation, conductor, battery, electronics industries and other applications are also expected to drive the growth of graphite during the forecast period. Global graphite market is segmented by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions. In 2015, Asia pacific was observed as the largest and fastest growing market for graphite.
