Graphite Coatings Market Expected to Reach $0.9 Billion by 2027


Report Code : A10676

quote The global graphite coatings market is expected to possess high growth potential in the coming years, owing to rise in use of graphite coatings as an alternative to pitch coatings in lithium ion battery application. In addition, use of graphite coating in lubrication applications such as water meters, windscreen blade coatings, sintered brake pads, clutch facings & linings, and self-lubrication of engineering parts will further propel the growth of the market. However, COVID-19 outbreak is predicted to negatively impact the growth of the global graphite coatings market. quote

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Graphite Coatings Market by Application and End-Use: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027,” the global graphite coatings market was valued at $0.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $0.9 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.82% from 2020 to 2027.

Graphite is a carbon mineral that is highly conductive making it suitable for use in conductive applications. Graphite coating offers improved electrical conductivity and helps to reduce the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD). It is widely used in industrial and commercial applications such as batteries, polymer compounds, paints & coatings. Impregnation of pyrolytic carbon, SiC, PTFE, methacrylate resin, and antimony are the different methods that are widely used for graphite coating. 

The growth of the global graphite coatings market is attributed to factors such as increase in utilization of graphite coatings for production of rubber, paints, coatings, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). In addition, it is also used in applications such as heat exchangers, heat sinks for LED, electronic prints, power cables, and brake pads. Moreover, its physical properties make it ideal for applications such as lithium-ion batteries, manufacturing of ceramics, hard metals, and powder metallurgy. These factors are augmenting the demand for the graphite coatings market. 

However, health related issues due to longer exposure or inhalation of graphite coatings may lead to health issues such as chest pain, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, and cough. It is the major factor that can hamper the global graphite coatings market growth. Lithium-ion battery application uses graphite coating that is manufactured using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coating. This coating is an alternative to pitch coating and is an environment-friendly coating. Thus, this factor is expected to offer new opportunity in the global market.

The global graphite coatings market is segmented on the basis of application, end-use and region. 

By application, the market is fragmented into lubrication, anti-seize agent, release agent, and others. The lubrication segment dominated the global market in terms of revenue in 2019, with over three-eight of the total share in 2019.

By end-use, the global graphite coating market is fragmented into automotive, displays & sensors, metal coating, and others. The automotive segment dominated the global market, with over three-eight of the total share in 2019.

Region wise, the graphite coatings market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific accounted for a major graphite coatings market share in 2019, and dominated the global market with more than half of the total market share in 2019.

Key players operating in the global graphite coatings market include Imerys Graphite & Carbon, Asbury Carbons, Mersen, Elcora Advanced Materials Corp., Triton Minerals, CONDAT Corporation, Whitford, Van Sickle Paint Mfg. Company, Final Advanced Materials, and BECHEM.

COVID-19 analysis:

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. However, the global graphite coatings market saw a negative effect due to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 pandemic has put forward new challenges for the key players in the global graphite coatings market. The major consumers of graphite coating are automotive, electronics, and aerospace sectors. COVID-19 pandemic has put forward several challenges for automotive manufactures across the globe. COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the overall revenue by $1.5-2.0 billion per month in India. In addition, further decline in demand for passenger vehicles has impacted negatively on the graphite coatings market. Coupled with COVID-19 pandemic several other factors such as goods & services tax (GST), shift to shared mobility, axle-load reforms, the switch from BS 4 to BS 6 transition, and liquidity crunch has negatively affected the automotive sector. This in turn has impacted negatively on the global graphite coatings market during the pandemic. Graphite coating is also majorly used in display and sensors. The outbreak of COVID-19 coupled with tariff war between the U.S. and China has forced relocation of major key-players that are involved in manufacturing of display and sensors.  IPC is a trade organization that is set up for advocacy, education and support of the electronics industry. According to survey by IPC, there was delay in shipments due to disruption in supply chain and travel restriction put forward by governmental organizations.

Key findings of the study

  • The lubrication application is estimated to display the highest growth rate, in terms of revenue, registering a CAGR of 7.20% from 2020 to 2027
  • The automotive end-user dominated the global graphite coatings market with around 7.20% in terms of revenue.
  • Asia-Pacific dominated the global graphite coatings market with around 51% of the market share in 2019. In addition, it is also estimated to display the highest growth rate, in terms of revenue, registering a CAGR of 7.90% from 2020 to 2027.
