Global Graphite Market Report 2022: Moves Towards Decarbonizing Transport Boost Demand & Spurring Growth

Dublin, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Graphite to 2033" report has been added to's offering.

The graphite market is experiencing sustained growth due to the development of electric vehicles and green energy. Future energy needs will require supply of raw materials for the development of low-carbon technologies. Graphite is viewed as a critical material for decarbonizing transportation and heavy industry, resulting in high market growth in the coming years.

Graphite is used across multiple industries such as automotive, steel-making, powder metallurgy, fuel cells, and flame retardants. Graphite is the dominant active anode material used in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles (EV). Huge growth in demand for batteries in electric vehicles and energy storage systems has underpinned recent changes in the graphite market landscape.

Desirable properties of graphite include:

  • good conductor of heat and electricity
  • high regular stiffness and strength.
  • maintains firmness and strength up to temperature more than 3600?C
  • highly lubricating material with chemical inertness and corrosion resistance

Graphite is classified as natural and synthetic. Natural graphite is further classified into three principal types, crystalline small flake graphite (or flake graphite), crystalline vein or lump graphite, and amorphous graphite (very fine flake graphite), which have different physical properties, appearance, chemical composition, and impurities.

Natural graphite can is mined in multiple countries. Synthetic graphite is produced from oil or coal-based needle coke and is preferred in the production electric arc furnaces (EAFs) for steelmaking. Battery producers can use both synthetic and natural graphite as their raw material.
