    Market Insights

    Isostatic graphite refers to a specialized form of graphite material that is produced using a unique manufacturing process known as isostatic pressing. In this process, finely powdered graphite particles are placed within a mold and subjected to high-pressure isostatic compression from all directions. This results in a graphite material with uniform density, a fine grain structure, and exceptional mechanical and thermal properties, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, such as electrodes for electric arc furnaces, crucibles for melting and casting metals, insulation materials in high-temperature furnaces, and as a structural material in certain advanced engineering projects.

    It is a crucial material in the semiconductor industry, particularly for manufacturing silicon wafers used in semiconductor fabrication. As the demand for electronic devices, smartphones, computers, and other technology-driven products continued to rise, the semiconductor industry's growth drove the need for isostatic graphite. Isostatic graphite's high thermal conductivity, temperature resistance, and non-reactivity make it suitable for use in industrial furnaces and metal casting processes. As various industries requiring high-temperature processing grew, the demand for this material for crucibles, molds, and heating elements increased in recent years.

    The isostatic graphite market has demonstrated resilience despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic, with a notable growth rate of 3.5% in 2020. This growth can be attributed to several factors, including persistent research & development endeavors focused on enhancing the intrinsic properties of isostatic graphite and delving into novel applications. These concerted efforts have played a pivotal role in propelling market expansion.

    Looking ahead, the isostatic graphite market is poised for robust and sustained growth. Projections indicate a promising trajectory, with an anticipated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% over the long term. By 2028, the market is expected to achieve a substantial valuation of approximately US$ 2.0 billion at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period.

    Recent Expansion

    The demand for isostatic graphite is rising across various industries, including electronics, semiconductor, aerospace, energy storage, and industrial applications. Manufacturers, such as Mersen and SGL Carbon, expanded their facilities to meet the increasing demand and prevent supply shortages.

    • In 2019, Mersen made a strategic decision to allocate an investment ranging from €25 to €35 million over the upcoming three to five years. This investment aims to facilitate the seamless establishment of new facilities, which will subsequently contribute to expanding their production capabilities. The anticipated outcome of this initiative is an augmentation of production capacity by approximately 2,000 to 4,000 tons per year for both, isostatic and extruded graphite specialty segments.
    • In 2016, an increase in capacity was achieved by SGL Carbon by renovating and enhancing the production systems used for manufacturing fine-grain graphite.
