Graphene - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)

Graphene - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)

  • Published: August 2018
  • ID: SMRC17468

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Graphene Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 40.0% during the forecast period. Rising demand for printed electronics, growing Focus on R&D activities and requirement of nanotechnology in electronic goods industry are some of the factors boosting the market growth. However, lack of mass production and huge priced equipment are few factors hindering the market growth.

Graphene is an allotrope of carbon includes graphite and diamond, which forms part of a huge area of study in the fields of nanomaterial and high technology. Precisely, it is a single layer of carbon atoms having a two dimensional hexagonal lattice, bonded together through strong covalent bonds at atomic level. Graphene provides increasing cycle life, capacity and provides almost double power with faster charging and discharging in Li-ion batteries and electrical super capacitor. It is also an empowering technology for next-generation batteries like lithium-sulfur and lithium-air chemistries.

By Type, Graphene Oxide (GO) segment has acquired the steady growth owing to the presence of oxygen functionalities and it helps in easy solvable in water and other organic solvents. Due to its high electrical conductivity, GO is widely used in electronic devices, catalytic oxidation, biotechnology. Based on end-user, energy segment has a considerable growth owing to the rising demand of lightweight and renewable advanced materials with long life duration.

North America is expected to lead the graphene market during the forecast period due to the increasing usage of graphene in touch screens and the necessity in printed electronics industry. Asia-Pacific is proposed to register the fastest growth rate due to the huge economic growth rate, increasing manufacturing industries and rising graphene-based application patents are expected to drive the market growth.
