Global Graphene Market Sales at US$100M in 2018: Graphene Technology, Markets, Players and Applications Reviewed in New Market Research Reports

Sep 10, 2012, 08:56 ET from ReportsnReports

DALLAS, September 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Graphene is a hot topic. It promises to offer the best possible material properties in almost all applications. Its extraordinary performance has led many to call it the 'superlative' or 'wonder' material. The reality however is different and it is important to diligently separate hype from reality using detailed understanding of the graphene technology and industry. offers two research reports on the Graphene Market that analyze the techonologies, markets, players and applications of Graphene with 2018 & 2022 forecasts for the industry.

Graphene: Analysis of Technology, Markets and Players 2013-2018 forecasts that 100 million dollars of graphene will be sold in 2018 into a range of applications, including RFID, smart packaging, super capacitors, composites, ITO replacement, sensors, logic and memory, etc. It finds that there is no single graphene, but they are different types of graphene. Each type has a different a microstructure, layer number, oxygen content, etc. And each type offers a different set of properties therefore targeting a different set of markets. Graphene can be manufactured using a variety of techniques. This research critically assesses the potential volume production capability, cost structure, and graphene quality for each technique. It evaluates mechanical micro-cleavage, chemical vapour deposition, liquid-phase exfoliation, oxidisation-reduction and various plasma approaches. Detailed company profiles are provided. In many cases, the profiles are compiled using direct interviews with decision-makers within the companies. For each company, detailed insight is given into their state of the technology, target markets, assets and business strategy. Using our insight, an overall picture of the emerging graphene industry, from an investment and revenue prospective, is constructed.
