What is carbon felt and graphite felt?

Carbon and graphite felt are refractory materials produced by pressing, tangling, and compressing fibers. They are easy to install, structurally stable, and exhibit high thermal resistance, low density, and negligible outgassing. They are commonly used as cathodes and electrodes in several battery designs and as insulation in vacuum and inert gas furnaces. These materials are ideal for high-temperature insulation, low shrinkage, and outgassing applications. In addition, they are flexible, durable, lightweight, easy to cut, and resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, and corrosion. At present, carbon felt and graphite felt are widely employed in automotive exhaust lining, furnaces, optic fibers, and heat shields across the globe.

What are the growth prospects and trends in the carbon felt and graphite felt?

The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for carbon felt and graphite felt for high-temperature furnaces and batteries. In addition, the escalating product demand for high-performance batteries for their ability to store energy efficiently, high conductivity, minimized fire risk, and recyclability is contributing to the market growth. In line with this, the rising use of these products in industrial activities such as fluid heating, vacuum distillation, and gas manufacturing, including ethylene, vinyl chloride monomer, and synthetic gas, is accelerating the product adoption rate. Moreover, the significant expansion in the automotive industry, the growing product demand due to their heat insulation properties, and the increasing on-road vehicle fleet represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the industry is fragmented and is expected to face extreme competition in the upcoming years as various key players are implementing competitive strategies to sustain their presence in the market. For instance, in June 2022, Toray Industries, Inc. planned to establish the environment and mobility development center in Nagoya, Aichi prefecture, and Otsu, Shiga prefecture, aims to reinforce the corporate marketing planning division’s abilities to accelerate the sales and marketing operations in those regions. Moreover, in August 2022, SGL Carbon Company disclosed its plan to increase the production capabilities of graphite products employed in the semiconductor industry at its St. Marys (USA), Shanghai (China), and Meitingen (Germany) facilities. Along with this, carbon felt and graphite felt are growing at different rates in numerous regions, with the Asia Pacific being the largest carbon felt and graphite felt market on account of the widespread product adoption in the electronic component manufacturing sector, significant technological advancements, and extensive research, and development (R&D) activities. Furthermore, the introduction of nanoparticle-combined carbon and graphite felts, government initiatives and investments for infrastructural development, and increasing research and development (R&D) activities to improve the performance and sustainability of these products are creating a positive market outlook.
