Graphite Market to Reach $29 Billion by 2022 - Rising Use of Graphite for Manufacturing of Structural Composite Parts Used in Aircraft - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Graphite Market by Application (Refractory, Foundry, Battery, Friction Product, Lubricant), Type (Natural Graphite, Synthetic Graphite), Natural Graphite (Flake, Amorphous, Vein), Region - Global forecast to 2022" report to their offering.

The global graphite market is projected to reach USD 29.05 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2017 to 2022. Steel, automotive, and aerospace are the key end-use industries of graphite-based products.

The increasing demand for graphite from aerospace & defense, wind energy, and automotive industries is one of the key factors expected to drive the growth of the graphite market. Additionally, graphite is increasingly being used for the manufacture of various structural composites in aircraft and automobiles. However, insufficient production capacities can restrain the growth of the market in the coming years.

Based on application, the graphite market has been segmented into refractory, foundry, battery, friction product, lubricant, and others. Other applications include crucible, graphene, pencil, recarburizing, and carbon brush, among others. The refractory application segment is estimated to lead the graphite market in 2017, as graphite-based refractories are widely used in the steel, nuclear reactor, and oil & gas industries.

Based on type, the graphite market has been segmented into natural graphite and synthetic graphite. The synthetic graphite segment is estimated to lead the overall graphite market in 2017. Synthetic graphite is projected to continue to lead the market during the forecast period owing to its demand from high-end applications in the aerospace & defense and automotive industries, due to its excellent mechanical properties.
