The Global Graphite Market is expected to reach US $37.48 billion by 2027, thanks to growth in the refractories segment. The report analyzes graphite market dynamics by region and applications.

Graphite Market Overview:

The graphite market was valued at US $26.23 Bn. in 2020, and it is expected to reach US $37.48 Bn. by 2027 with a CAGR of 5.23% during the forecast period. Graphite (also known as plumbago), is a crystalline form of the carbon element with an arrangement of atoms in the hexagonal pattern. It occurs naturally being the most stable form of carbon under ordinary conditions. It turns into a diamond at high pressures and temperatures. It is a mineral, which is found in lubricants and pencils. It is an excellent electricity and heat conductor. It is strong conductivity makes it ideal for electrodes, batteries, and solar panels. According to the World Bank, the global graphite demand is expected to increase by 500% by 2050.

Global Graphite Market Dynamics:

Revolution In Lithium-Ion Battery:

Batteries are going to be smaller, last longer, and supply more power in the future. Batteries that are lightweight, long-lasting, safe, and can be implanted without needing to be replaced frequently are used in electric cars, power tools, medical equipment, and portable electronic devices. Graphite Market Lithium-ion and lithium iron phosphate batteries, both of which use graphite as an anode material, are the most advanced battery systems. These batteries make about 25% of the global graphite demand. To power an electric vehicle, a Li-ion battery requires substantially more graphite than lithium, making high-quality battery anode materials scarce. Batteries power smartphones, electric cars, and 3D printers, as well as fuel cells that generate electricity through a chemical process. It is a massive business that is only going to get bigger, with lithium-ion battery consumption expected to climb 10 times by 2029.

Electric Vehicles:

With climate change and carbon dioxide reductions driving global demand for greener transportation options, global EVs sales reached a new high of 10 million in 2020. For EVs, bikes, and other vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are the gold standard. In 2016, Tesla made history when it launched the first stage of its Giga-factory with an intention to generate adequate lithium-ion batteries to supply power to 1,500,000 EVs/year. There were 115 Giga factories in the works around the world as of December 2019.

Industrial Applications:

Markets for traditional graphite are also thriving. Graphite has long been in demand for a variety of applications, including pencils and refractory materials for furnaces, kilns, incinerators, and reactors, as well as flame deflector systems for rocket launch structures. Automobile parts, inks and coatings, paints, polymers and plastics, lubricants and grease, ceramics, drilling fluids, steel pipe and tubing, fire retardants, and oil spill response solutions all contain graphite. Thus, growing industrial applications are likely to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

Surging Prices of Graphite:

China dominates the world's 70% to 80% supply of graphite. Graphite prices in China grew nearly every month in 2021, as supply disruptions met with demand recovery. In mid-July, Fast Markets IM prices for 80% grade (fob China) reached US$ 410/tonne, up 32% from January and 49% higher than the previous low in September 2020. Global Graphite Market As a result of continued environmental inspections and consequent production plant closures, as well as considerable increases in transit costs from China as markets restored after COVID-19, prices for both flake and amorphous graphite climbed through Q4 2020 and Q1 2021. To avoid fines for failing to meet emissions standards, some businesses have voluntarily cut production. Thus, the surging price of graphite globally is expected to be a major barrier to the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Global Graphite Market Segment Analysis:

Based on Type, the graphite market is segmented, crystalline graphite, amorphous graphite, lump graphite, and highly ordered pyrolytic graphite. In 2020, the amorphous graphite segment was dominant and held xx% of the overall market share in terms of revenue as it is widely used in many industrial applications. Amorphous graphite is a mineral found in seams. It is found in a variety of lubrication products, including greases, forging lubricants, and so on. This type of graphite is an excellent alternative for situations where a higher ash content is acceptable or requested. Global Graphite Market Based on Application, the graphite market is segmented as, refractories, batteries, steel making, brake linings, foundry facings and lubricants, pencils, and others. In 2020, the refractories segment was dominant and held more than 50% of the overall market share in terms of revenue. The segment’s growth can be related to the booming industrial operations and development and the increased demand for graphite from industries, such as aerospace, construction, automotive, and metal production.

Global Graphite Market Regional Insights:

In 2020, the Asia Pacific region was dominant and held more than xx% of the overall market share in terms of revenue. The growth of the graphite market in these regions has been supported by the presence of major players in the production of batteries for electric vehicles and an increase in end-use sectors such as automotive, electronics, as well as increasing per capita income. Global Graphite Market As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), after a decade of significant growth, there were 10 million EVs on the road around the world by the end of 2020, despite the pandemic-related global decline in car sales, which saw global car sales decline 16% in 2020, EVs registrations increased by 41%. An increasing population and greater demand for high-quality goods have also helped the market's development in this region. The North American market held a considerable xx% of the overall market share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately xx% during the forecast period.
