Graphite Lubricant Market: Global Drivers, Opportunities, Trends and Forecast Up to 2022

Graphite is one of the most common form of carbon. Graphite with or without other chemicals used for lubrication is commonly termed as graphite lubricants, which come under Dry lubricant or Solid lubricant. In spite of being in the solid phase, Dry lubricants or solid lubricants are materials which are able to reduce friction between two surfaces sliding against each other without the need for any greasy or liquid medium.

Due to its superior property such as high temperature resistance, and low coefficient of friction, it is widely being used in various end user industries. Transportation is the largest end user of graphite lubricant owing to its high lubrication property even at higher temperatures followed by industrial applications. The application of graphite lubricant is also increasing in electrical equipment due to added advantage of conductivity. These lubricating solids can stay longer than unfortified oils thus reducing maintenance cost.

Solvent / water based are the most common application technology used for graphite lubricant. The specificity and the requirements of the usage define the technology being used, although solvent based is being limited based on environmental concerns. It can also be used in the form of powder and impregnated / composites.

Asia Pacific is the largest market globally due to presence of export oriented manufacturing capacities and large domestic demand from various end user’s industries for graphite lubricant. Growth of automotive and other machine industry is driving the market of graphite lubricant in the region. The anticipated economic stability in Europe is expected to boost its manufacturing sector, further increasing market growth for the graphite lubricant market. North America is expected to remain a key region in the market with major contribution coming from the US. Some of the prominent operating in the graphite lubricant market are GrafTech International Limited, Toyo Tanso Co., Ltd., Fuchs Petrolub SE, and Imerys graphite and carbon.
