To give a brief idea about revenue opportunities from the product type, application and region/country-wise segments, the report also provides volume (Tons) data, absolute $ opportunity, and total incremental opportunity for each segment over the forecast period (2017-2027).

We have also provided the global graphite market structure and a detailed competition landscape with company market share and performance, to provide report audiences with a dashboard view of key players operating in the global graphite market along with their business strategies. This would enable clients to assess strategies deployed by market leaders and help them develop effective strategies accordingly. Lastly, the report highlights the global graphite market overview by the respective segments i.e. product type, application and region.

Research Methodology

For market data analysis, we have considered 2016 as the base year, with market numbers estimated for 2017 and forecast made for 2018–2027. We have also studied the historical trend of the market for the year 2012-2016 in order to have a better understanding of the market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the weighted average price of graphite, based on product type that is natural and synthetic graphite across key geographies on a regional basis. The forecast assesses the total revenue (US$ Mn) as well as volume (Tons) of the global graphite market. To deduce market volume size, consumption of graphite has been considered. In order to provide an accurate forecast, we have started by sizing up the current market, which forms the basis of how the global graphite market is expected to develop in the future. The critical market data, including the base number and segment splits, has been devised through in-depth secondary research. This data is then triangulated on the basis of different verticals, considering both supply side and demand side drivers and other dynamics of the various regional markets, along with primary interviews of manufacturers and industry experts operating in the global graphite market. The forecast presented in the report evaluates the actual consumption of graphite and expected consumption in the global graphite market over the forecast period.

We have also analysed the different segments of the global graphite market in terms of basis point share (BPS) to understand individual segments’ relative contribution to market growth. This detailed level of information is important for identifying the various key trends governing the global graphite market. The report also analyses the global graphite market based on absolute dollar opportunity, essential to identify potential resources in the global market. We have also developed a market attractiveness index to understand the key segments in terms of their performance and growth in the global graphite market. This market attractiveness index would help clients identify real market opportunities in the global graphite market.
