The Global Isostatic Graphite Market: Highlights
Isostatic graphite, also called as Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP), is a carbon material owning unique physical properties. The name Isostatic Graphite is derived from the method of production. During the forming process the material is isostatically pressed with equal pressure from every side, therefore, the material shows typically an isotropic property behavior. It is an ultra-fine grain graphite best suited for those applications which require high mechanical properties. This differs from extruded graphite process which pushes through a die and has varying properties in different grain directions. It can be manufactured as blocks and rounds in various sizes as per your needs.
Isostatic graphite’s features include good machinability, strong thermal stability, low expansion ratio, good chemical resistance, and excellent electrical conductivity. It is used in many industries, such as Photovoltaic, semiconductor, nuclear, metal, and many more.
Global Isostatic Graphite Materials Market Insights
Japanese companies own the majority of the global Isostatic graphite market share and are expected to remain the leading companies in the near future. Most of the leading Isostatic graphite manufacturers are continuously expanding their geographical footprint to tap the regional potential.
Asia-Pacific region is the major consumer of the Isostatic graphites worldwide in which China is the leading country growing at a double digit CAGR in the last ten years. SGL, Mersen, and Toyo Tanso have set up manufacturing plant in China to serve the local market. Despite capacity expansion in China by local as well as international players, some portion of the demand is still met through import.
The global Isostatic graphite market offers a healthy growth opportunity during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Solar Photovoltaic, Semiconductor, and EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) are expected to drive the growth of the Isostatic graphite market during the forecast period.
Global Isostatic Graphite Materials Market Players
Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the dominant region in the global Isostatic graphite market during the forecast period. Emerging Asian countries, such as China and India are fueling the growth in the Asia-Pacific region in the next five years.
