What is Graphite?

Graphite is a crystalline form of the carbon with atoms formed in a hexagonal structure. It is one of the most stable forms of carbon under standard conditions and high pressure and temperatures that converts to diamond. Graphite is used in various products like pencils, lubricants, and with its qualities like excellent conductivity makes it useful in products like electrodes, batteries, and solar panels.

The quality of graphite having good conductivity is making it useful in electric compounds and batteries. Also, the growth of graphite usage is attributed to its benefit of usage in lithium-ion, hybrid, and electric vehicles. These uses are making the automotive industry to increase its consumption of graphite more, thus, fuelling the growth of the global graphite market. The lighter weight of graphite is making its way get consumed in aircraft so that they can have significant momentum. These are the drivers of the growth of the worldwide graphite market. The increasing production of batteries and the rise in the semiconductor industry also creates a growth potential for the global graphite market.
