Pune, India, August 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The world graphite market The size was $ 13.60 billion in 2020. Based on our analysis, the market is expected to grow from $ 14.83 billion in 2021 to $ 25.70 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.2% during the period 2021-2028. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights ™ in its report entitled, “Graphite market, 2021-2028”. It is estimated that the increasing use of this mineral in the production of lithium-ion batteries used in automobiles will ultimately increase demand. Major players, as well as governments, approve of the use of electric vehicles enormously.
For example, in early 2019, the Indian government unveiled its strategies to improve its domestic battery production and value-added capabilities to meet its electric vehicle (EV) adoption goals. It further plans to launch tenders to establish a US $ 50 billion, 50 GW battery manufacturing base. Likewise, the government is focusing on imposing a zero duty on the import of lithium-ion. This will allow producers to create progressive new cell chemistry.
COVID-19 outbreak will negatively affect auto industry due to losses suffered by battery companies
The unfortunate situation of the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in 2019 and since then has had a negative impact on the majority of sectors. The global economic turmoil during this period has forced companies to take unfavorable decisions about their business. For example, Exide Technologies, a former Fortune 1000 battery manufacturing company based in Georgia, USA, is said to be grappling with growing debt and the COVID-19 supply crisis and has ultimately filed for bankruptcy as ‘it continues to trade in its durable properties.

Conductors and constraints
Growing demand for refractory industry is expected to drive market growth
Natural and synthetic are the two main types of graphite used in the market. They are essentially two distinct materials with different properties. The steel industry is the main consumer of natural minerals, in which the refractory industry is the highest end use, responsible for almost half of global demand.
The refractory industry, which uses graphite to create products for high temperature environments such as linings for furnaces, incinerators, furnaces and reactors, remains the primary market. Refractory supplies are often large crystals, with many sizes of minor flakes and amorphous minerals thrown in for a decent measure. Steel has so far been the leading producer of refractory products, followed by non-ferrous metals and non-metallic production industries such as cement and glass. According to the World Steel Association’s AISBL, world crude steel production in 2019 amounted to 1,869 million tonnes, of which China was responsible for 53.3%, while the EU contributed only 8.5%. This is expected to hamper the growth of the graphite market in the near future.
Asia-Pacific to Dominate Market Driven by Growing Demand for Graphite Electrodes
The Asia-Pacific market was worth $ 8.24 billion in 2020. Asia-Pacific dominated the market share of 60.6% in 2020 and is expected to continue its supremacy during the forecast period. Increased demand for conductors, graphite electrodes and batteries, as well as carbon fiber protected plastic, is expected to drive the market growth.
Europe holds the second largest share of the world market. It is estimated that the increasing demand for batteries and other electrical devices containing graphite from European countries will increase the demand. The renowned automotive industry in major countries such as Germany and the UK is now focusing on emerging electric vehicles powered by Li-ion batteries requiring graphite.
North America is expected to show decent growth due to the fact that Canada is one of the major producers. Additionally, increased demand for mineral and battery-powered devices native to many end-use sectors such as electronics, defense, aerospace, automotive and others is likely to drive regional growth.
