Graphite Producers

Graphite producers - synthetics

In addition to the demand for natural graphite, there is now a huge and growing demand for synthetics, which graphite producers are working hard to meet. Synthetics are mainly used in the battery industry. Historically they were used for zinc carbon batteries, but these days the main demand is for lithium ion and lithium polymer batteries, as these are used in portable electronic equipment and also in electric vehicles. In these areas synthetics are preferred due to the fact that they offer very high purity. This is valued above all else for these particular forms of applications. At the current time the U.S. is the main producer of synthetics.
