Global Graphite Market 2018-2023: Analysis by Type, Application, End-user Industry, and Geography - Electronics Industry to Dominate -


The "Global
Graphite Market - Segmented by Type, Application, End-user Industry, and
Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)"
has been added to's offering.

The graphite market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the
forecast period, majorly driven by the augmenting demand from burgeoning
lithium-ion battery industry.

Augmenting Demand from Lithium-ion Battery Industry

Uncoated spherical graphite, coated spherical graphite (CSPG) and
lithium-ion anode paste are imperative as anode material in lithium ion
batteries for mobile consumer appliances, electric vehicles and
stationary energy storages. The three main demand drivers for CSPG
include transportation batteries (significant growth), stationary or
commercial or utility grid-storage batteries (exponential growth), and
consumer electronics batteries (moderate growth).

The current consumption for Li-ion batteries is 105,000 tons (60,000
natural CSPG and 45,000 synthetic). As there is no CSPG production in
North America, two United States based graphite companies, Graphite One
and Alabama Graphite have included facilities for turning graphite
concentrate into coated, purified, spherical graphite (also known as
CPSG) in order to capture the fast growing lithium ion battery market.
Hence, with such boom in the lithium-ion battery industry, the demand
for graphite is projected to increase substantially during the forecast
