Investment towards integration of advanced technologies that support electric vehicle manufacturing will give impetus to the market. Despite exponential growth in electric vehicle sales, demand in the graphite market plummeted to an extent as COVID-19 outbreak resulted in supply chain disruption and suspended automotive production.

With global shutdown and disruption of export-import activities, sales of graphite declined in the FQ-20. Nevertheless, the market is expected to witness rapid recovery owing to the greenfield and brownfield investments within automotive, manufacturing, and other end-use industries.

What is the Role of the Metallurgy Segment in the Market?
Electrodes and refractories, casting, and foundries are all included in the metallurgy area of the market analysed. For steel manufacturing, ferroalloy production, silicon metal manufacture, and smelting, graphite electrodes are used in electric arc furnaces (EAFs) and ladle furnaces (LFs).

The need for graphite is predicted to rise as steel production using electric arc furnaces is on the rise. Natural graphite is used in the production of crucibles and mag-carbon bricks in refractories. Steel converters and electric arc furnaces both use graphite as a liner. Owing to these factors, the metallurgy segment is anticipated to grow 1.3X by the end of 2031.

How is the Market Performing in North America and Europe?
Because of the growing need for graphite anodes in the battery industry, companies in Europe and North America are building an integrated graphite supply chain.

Increasing investments in e-mobility and battery grid storage are expected to boost graphite use in these areas. In addition, traditional end users such as steelmaking and refractories are likely to maintain their demand over the next few years.

Graphite Coatings Market Analysis - The automotive industry has been a significant contributor to the increased demand for graphite coatings. This is because the automobile industry is associated with numerous material-handling operations and material-utilization practises. As a result, graphite coatings are always in high demand for preventing rust and corrosion in metal bodies. In 2020, the automobile industry will account for more than 34% of demand for graphite coatings.

Refractories Market Trends - Clay-based refractories in the form of bricks are used to line portions of the interiors of blast furnaces, blast-furnace stoves, and coke ovens, allowing the refractories market to grow. Non-clay refractories, on the other hand, are expected to grow at a potential CAGR during the forecast period. Steel industries account for roughly three-quarters of global refractory demand and are expected to maintain their dominance throughout the forecast period.

Metallurgical Grade Silicon Market Forecast - Technological advancements have also provided a foundation for the growth of the electronics industry, which will in turn aid the growth of the metallurgical grade silicon market. Silicones and silanes have numerous applications in a variety of industries; thus, the use of metallurgical grade silicon in the production of silicones and silanes will drive the metallurgical grade silicon market forward. North America's electronics industry is also experiencing moderate growth, which is driving up sales of metallurgical grade silicon in the region.
