Comments · 177 Views

The casting, electrodes and refractories, and foundries categories of the market analyzed fall under the metallurgy category. In electric arc furnaces (EAF) and ladle furnaces (LF), graphite electrodes are employed in the smelting process to produce ferroalloys, steel, and aluminum.

The global graphite market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 43,357.6 Mn by 2032, with the market expanding at a positive CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2022 and 2032. Valued at US$ 21,609.2 Mn in 2021, the graphite market will likely reach an estimated US$ 23,097.7 Mn in 2022.

The escalating application of graphite in various end-use industries like batteries, foundry facing, lubricants crucible, refractories and others drive the graphite market to grow over this period of observation. The advantages of using graphite such as good thermal and electrical conductivity, lubricity, chemical resistance, and others propel the adoption of graphite in various industries.

One of the primary market drivers of graphite is the expanding electric vehicles sector. Graphite is used in the production of anodes that are needed in batteries, particularly of electric vehicles. Also, rising concerns for the environment coupled with increasing awareness about pollution and such foster growth for the electric and hybrid electric vehicles.

In addition to this, escalating demand for solar panels all over the world along with an increase in the need for Li-ion batteries in electric vehicles will further propel the target market. Usage of graphite in solar panels lessens the cost and optimizes the efficiency.

In the automotive sector, the high thermal resistance, chemical inertness, and the porous nature of graphite makes it the most preferred material for the production of anode in Li-ion batteries. All of these factors promote an environment of growth for the graphite market over the projected period.
