The global graphite market is driven mainly by the high demand for lithium-ion batteries worldwide to facilitate the adoption of electric vehicles. In addition, substantial steel production by means of an electric arc furnace, consisting of a graphite electrode, is fueling the growth of the graphite market during the forecast period. Graphite is a central compound in lithium ion-powered batteries. Increased demand for electrically powered vehicles using lithium-ion batteries is expected in the forecast period. In addition, graphite is an important material used in automotive gaskets, clutch components, engines, exhaust systems, and cylinder heads.

The increasing application in the aerospace industry is expected to increase the growth of the graphite market size. Graphite is commonly used in the aerospace industry as it promotes the production of light structural components that help increase fuel efficiency. Graphite has a high strength-to-weight ratio compared to conventional aerospace products, such as metals and plastics, among others. This enables efficient designs to be made, both structurally and aerodynamically. Aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus are gradually using graphite composites.

Graphite is also suitable for use in military applications where high heat tolerance, strength, and stiffness are needed. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the graphite market size.
