Synthetic Graphite Material Market Revenue and Value Chain 2017 – 2025


Synthetic graphite material is man-made graphite, manufactured through the processing of amorphous carbon materials at high temperatures. Synthetic graphite can be derived from carbon-containing materials such as petroleum, coal tar, coke, etc. It can also be obtained through the pyrolysis of carbonaceous gases such as acetylene. The singularity of synthetic graphite is its highly purified nature in terms of carbon content, higher crystallinity, and the resultant ability to withstand high temperature and corrosion. These properties render the behavior of synthetic graphite predictable. However, the processing employed to obtain synthetic graphite makes it more expensive in comparison to natural graphite. The price of synthetic graphite can be double or even triple of the standard price of natural graphite.

Given the characteristic advantages of synthetic graphite, it is used in certain highly specialized but lucrative industries such as metal manufacturing, solar panels, batteries, etc. The global synthetic graphite material market can be segmented based on manufacturing process, product type, form, application, and end-user industry, among others.

In terms of manufacturing process, the global synthetic graphite market can be classified into high temperature processing and pyrolysis processing. Synthetic graphite is commonly manufactured using high temperature processes and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

In terms of region, the global synthetic graphite market can be classified into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
