Graphite is a critical mineral for lithium-ion batteries, and its battery demand is expected to grow in the coming future. Meeting this increasing demand will require a higher supply of both natural graphite and its synthetic counterpart. As the demand for graphite increases, developing a resilient graphite supply chain is crucial to the world. New graphite mines will be key to meeting graphite’s rising demand and combating a potential supply deficit.
Here are the top 10 largest graphite producing countries in the world.
