North Korea Graphite Market Dynamics:

North Korea Graphite Market Drivers


Graphite has been utilized in pencils as well as materials for furnaces, kilns, incinerators, and reactors, as well as flame deflector systems for missile launch systems. Graphite is also utilized in Automobile components, inks and coatings, paints, polymers and plastics, lubricants and grease, ceramics, drilling fluids, steel pipe and tubing, fire retardants, and oil spill response solutions. Natural flake graphite (NFG) demand has been continuously increasing over the last several decades due to the need for lithium-ion batteries which are utilized in devices such as tablets, laptops, and smartphones, as well as electric vehicles. thus demand for graphite is currently high and will certainly increase as the world converts to sustainable energy sources. According to a government official, North Korea's Ministry of Atomic Energy is developing a new plant to produce graphite indicates that the country is looking for nuclear clients for its graphite. As a consequence, the rising use of graphite in industrial applications will drive graphite market growth throughout the forecast period.


Restraint for the North Korea Graphite Market


Foreign investors find it difficult to participate in North Korean mineral development activities because most want to form their own firms and run the mines independently. As a result, North Korea's legal requirements, sovereign risk, and old-fashioned infrastructure are barriers to international investment in North Korea Graphite Market.


COVID 19 Scenario for the North Korea Graphite Market


According to media reports, the DPRK implemented stringent border controls throughout 2020 and 2021 to stop the spread of COVID-19. Unsurprisingly, this had a significant impact on trade potential, particularly with China. China is North Korea's most important trading partner, both legally and illegally for the graphite market. China's reported trade with North Korea in 2020 dropped by 80% from the previous year. While the North Korean leadership has been able to keep some degree of income by violating restrictions through ship-to-ship oil transfers and continuing to export tonnes of graphite, it is apparent that a severe border lock-down has had catastrophic economic consequences.
