A non-metal, graphite is a form of coal has metallic processes such as high stiffness, strength, highly-durable and is a good conductor of electricity and heat. This calcium salt is commonly used in various processes such as die or cast, desiccant in building materials, immobilize casts, tablet excipient, an impression material in dentistry and many more. The chemical formula of graphite powder is CaSO4, in its purest form, which is non elastic in nature despite being soft and flexible. Owing to its great advantages, graphite powder in today’s date is being highly used in the construction industry. Thus, the increment in the expenditure made by several governments in the construction industry is forecasted to bring lucrative opportunities for the market in the assessment period. By 2030, the global construction industry expenditure is expected to propel to USD 18 trillion.

Global Graphite Powder Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rapid Maturing of Automotive Industry-Graphite powder has been classified as an important material for motors, cylinder heads, exhaust systems, clutch materials, and gaskets in automobiles. In recent years, graphite powder has replaced asbestos, which was primarily used in linings and disk brake pads, thus expanding the graphite powder market size. The automotive industry of India is anticipated to become the 3rd largest automotive industry in the world by the year 2030, with a revenue generation of USD 200 billion.

  • Expansion of Manufacturing Industry - The revenue gathered by the manufacturing industry of the United States amounted to be approximately USD 6 trillion in 2022. Further, in the same period, there are around 638,590 manufacturing businesses in the region.

  • Increased Sales of Electric Vehicles – As per the International Energy Agency in 2021, the global sales of battery electric vehicles were 4,700,000 units whereas, the global sales of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles were 1,900,000 units. This is a considerable increase from the year 2020 where the sales of battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles were accounted to 2,000,000 units and 980,000 units respectively.
  • High Level of Steel Production - The global steel production rose from the year 2020 with 1870 million tons to 1950 million tons in 2021, equivalent to a 4% increase.


  • An Unbalanced Demand and Supply of Steel Production
  • Additional Expenses in the Production Process
  • Stringent Rules by Government

The graphite powder market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into refractories, lubricants & crucibles, foundry facing, batteries, and others. Out of these the batteries segment is projected to garner the highest revenue by 2031, owing to the increased demand of batteries in the upcoming years. As per recent statistics, it is being revealed that the global demand of batteries is projected to rise from 190 GWh in 2020 to 2,000 GWh in 2030. Also, the growth in production of lithium-ion polymer (LIP) battery to balance the equation of demand and supply of electric vehicles is anticipated to bolster the market growth. As per recent estimates, the global LIP production is expected to rise from 500 GWh in 2020 to 1,500 GWh in 2025.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth


The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
