Similar to diamond, graphite is an allotrope of carbon that portrays a hexagonal crystalline form and is black or gray in color. Graphite furnishes high thermal resistance with a melting point of around 3,930° C. It is the most electrically and thermally conductive non‐metal and an efficient lubricant. Graphite is chemically inert in nature and has a high resistance to corrosion. Furthermore, graphite offers several advantages such as higher operating reliability, high conductivity, higher strength, and higher lubrication.
The global graphite market is expected to witness a lot of opportunities, on account of rise in demand for lightweight materials such as carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) to be used in automobiles and manufacturing components of aircraft. Moreover, different applications of graphite in lubrication and refractories is anticipated to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. In addition, rise in need for cost-effective raw metal material and increase in demand for lithium ion batteries drive the market growth. However, strict government regulations on the extraction of natural graphite might hinder the market growth.
Graphite is expected to register the highest growth in the battery production application, owing to rise in use of lithium ion batteries, especially in smartphones and tablets.
In terms of volume, refractories segment accounted for around two-fifths share in 2015. In response to the perennial modifications in the refractories, efficient and lightweight graphite products are in high demand globally. Moreover, increase in requirement of cost-effective battery anodes and rise in adoption of graphite in lubrication of foundries drive the global graphite market.
According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead, Chemicals & Materials at Allied Market Research, “Increase in use of graphite to produce lithium ion battery anodes, specifically in consumer electronics, initiated the use of natural and synthetic graphite especially, as a counterpart to heavy and costly metals. Thus, rise in demand for relatively lighter and inexpensive materials across battery production applications pose lucrative opportunities for significant players in the market.”
