Increasing use of graphite in the production of lithium-ion batteries will improve its demand over the coming years. Demand for electric vehicles batteries also will result in higher adoption of graphite in the production of electrodes and refractories & foundries. This will create attractive prospects for sales in the market through the course of the assessment period.

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.

As per Fact.MR, increasing application of graphite in the production of electrodes and refractories will spur the sales. The electrodes and refractories segment will register impressive growth at 9.1% CAGR during the forecast period.

Besides this, graphite application in the production of steel is accelerating. Rising use of graphite in steel moulding for casting ware and to cover foundry facings will boost growth opportunities in the market. As per Fact.MR, over 65% of the graphite sales are expected to be contributed by steel production, refractories & foundries, friction products, and recarburizers.

"Increasing need for sustainable and eco-friendly transportation facilities have created opportunities for the graphite market growth. In order to gain competitive edge, leading players are investing heavily in developing sustainable synthetic graphite. This is expected to help in growth of the market in the coming years," says a Fact.MR analyst.

Graphite Coatings Market - 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 - 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 - 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.
