Demand For Graphite Electrodes Is Likely To Increase Over The Years

Market Snapshot

The global graphite market is anticipated to surge at a CAGR of 8.5% over the period of 2021 to 2031, due to high investments in the development of newer technologies to support EV manufacturing, and graphite is a vital cathode material that is used in EV batteries.

Overall, the market is slated to expand 2.3X over the next ten years, thereby offering immense opportunities to market participants.

Augmenting demand from the developing lithium-ion (li-ion) battery industry as well as rise in steel production in Asia and the Middle East are primary factors set to drive market growth in the short term. On the other hand, discovery of substitute anode materials for lithium-ion batteries in high-end applications, strict environmental laws, and impact of the COVID-19 outbreak are all predicted to stifle growth of the global graphite market to some extent.
