Graphite Market By Application (Refractories, Lubricants & Crucible, Foundry Facing, Batteries And Others) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2016 – 2023

Graphite is flexible and has both metallic and non-metallic properties, making it suitable for diverse industrial applications. 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, the global graphite market is divided into refractories, lubricants and crucibles, foundry facing, batteries, and others. According to industry experts, refractories are expected to remain the key driver for the graphite market, coupled with increasing demand for batteries and foundries owing to rapid industrialization, especially in Asian countries.

Other factors, such as growing demand for graphite in the steel industry and increasing use of graphite in the automotive industry, power generation, conductors, batteries, electronics industries, and other applications, are also expected to drive the growth of graphite during the forecast period. The global graphite market is segmented by geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa regions.

In 2015, Asia Pacific was observed as the largest and fastest-growing market for graphite. Due to increasing industrialization and development in the automotive sector in China, India, Japan, and South Korea over the past few years, graphite has gained popularity in Asian countries.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), China is the world's leading supplier of natural graphite (flake and amorphous), with approximately 67% of global production, followed by India, Brazil, Canada, and North Korea, collectively accounting for around 25% of the global graphite production.

The key trends observed in the industry are Chinese flake graphite developments, rising synthetic graphite production, the ongoing shift to alternative energy influences the global graphite market, the global graphite market is expected to increase steadily, the rise of technologically advanced applications of graphite, and so on.

Key manufacturers in the graphite market include AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V., Graphite India Limited, GrafTech International Limited, HEG Ltd., Toyo Tanso Co. Ltd., Tokai Carbon Co. Ltd., Showa Denko K.K., SGL Carbon SE., and SEC Carbon Ltd.The graphite market is expected to exceed US$ 20.8 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.8% between 2016 and 2023.
