Market Definition: Global Graphite Market
Graphite is a naturally-occurring mineral which forms when it is subjected to heat and pressure. Graphite is the crystalline allotrope of the carbon that forms coal. Graphite is majorly used in refractory, foundry, battery, friction product, lubricant, steel making, brake linings and neuron moderator. Graphite and carbon nano tubes are also used in the carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and in the heat resistant composites.
Major Market Drivers:
- Growing application of graphite in the wind energy industry
- Increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells
- Increasing use of graphite in the manufacturing of structural composite parts used in the aircrafts
- Insufficient production capacity
