Pune, India, Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global graphite market size was USD 13.60 billion in 2020. Based on our analysis, the market is projected to grow from USD 14.83 billion in 2021 to USD 25.70 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.2% during the 2021-2028 period. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled, “Graphite Market, 2021-2028.” The increasing utilization of this mineral in the production of lithium-ion batteries used in automobiles is estimated to enhance the demand eventually. The major players, as well as the governments, are enormously endorsing the utilization of EVs.

For instance, in early 2019, the Indian government revealed its strategies to enhance its national battery production and value-adding abilities to encounter its electric vehicle (EV) adoption objectives. It further plans on introducing tenders to establish a USD 50 billion 50 GW battery manufacturing base. Likewise, the government is focusing on providing zero duty on the import of lithium-ion. This will enable the producers to create novel progressive cell chemistry.

COVID-19 Outbreak to Adversely Affect the Automotive Industry due to Losses Faced by Battery Companies

The unfortunate situation of the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in 2019 and ever since has been adversely impacting the majority of the sectors. The economic turmoil observed during this period globally has forced companies to make unfavorable decisions regarding their business. For instance, Exide Technologies, a prior Fortune 1000 battery manufacturing company based in Georgia, United States, is reported to be clutched by a mounting debt burden and the COVID-19 supply crisis and has eventually ended up filing for bankruptcy as it pursues to trade off its lasting properties.

Drivers and Restraints

Growing Demand for Refractory Industry Likely to Thrust Market Growth

Natural and synthetic are the two kinds of graphite mainly utilized in the market. They are essentially two distinct materials with diverse properties. The steel industry is the main consumer of natural minerals, in which the refractory industry is the uppermost end-use, responsible for nearly half of worldwide demand.

The refractory industry, which uses graphite to create goods for high-temperature environments such as linings for kilns, incinerators, furnaces, and reactors, remains to be the principal market. Refractory supplies are frequently made of large crystals, with numerous minor flake sizes and amorphous minerals flung in for decent measure. Steel is so far the foremost producer of refractory products, trailed by non-ferrous metals and non-metallic producing industries such as cement and glass. As per the World Steel Association AISBL, world crude steel production in 2019 turned out to be 1,869 million tons, from which China was responsible for 53.3%, whereas the EU only contributed as much as 8.5%. This is anticipated to impede graphite market growth in the near future.
