The global market for graphite reached $12.5 billion in 2016 and should reach $18.2 billion in 2021, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% from 2016 through 2021.
The report covers the global graphite markets, providing the market information for 2015 and 2016 and forecasts for 2021.
The scope of the report is coverage of the four graphite market segments - refractory and metallurgy, electrical, technical, and the rest - analyzed by application and geography. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers' total revenues.
Refractory and metallurgy markets cover those applications that make use of the high temperature stability of graphite. Electrical applications are those that tap into the high electrical conductivity of purer grades of graphite. Technical markets make use of the strength properties, lubrication and radiation absorption. For these segments, we report the status and changes happening in the markets.
The graphite market can also be segmented into natural and synthetic graphite markets. One of the focus areas is the development of natural graphite mining and application, driven largely by the lithium-ion battery markets that are fundamentally changing the structure of the graphite industry.
For the synthetic graphite market, the report covers the nature of individual application markets, focusing on graphite electrodes. Another application covered in detail is cathodes for aluminum smelting.
The refractory and metallurgical segment reached $17.2 billion in 2016 and should reach $9.4 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2016 through 2021. The electrical application segment reached $661 billion in 2016 and should reach nearly $2.0 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 24.7% from 2016 through 2021.
