Isotropic graphite refers to as a graphite material, which contains microparticles and possesses isotropic structure & properties. It is manufactured through cold isostatic pressing (CIP). High reliability, ultraheat resistance, enhanced electrical conductivity, exceptional chemical resistance, and lightweight are some of the properties, which make these products ideal for industrial applications. Isotropic graphite products are utilized in various industries, including rapidly advancing semiconductor industry, environment friendly renewable energy industry, accuracy focused mold industry, and nuclear power industry.
Rise in demand for isotropic graphite form the solar cell industry and increase in use of isotropic graphite products in manufacturing of semiconductors are primary factors that drive the growth of the isotropic graphite market. Moreover, surge in demand from automotive industry and rise in use in nuclear reactors supplement the market growth. However, high cost of isotropic graphite products and stringent government regulations associated with mining of earth minerals hinder the market growth. Increase in use of isotropic graphite products in emerging economies such as China and India due to increase in number of solar projects is anticipated to provide growth opportunities for market expansion.
