DUBLIN, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Graphene Opportunities 2013-2018: Technology, Markets, Players" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

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 this report diligently separates hype from reality using our detailed understanding of the graphene technology and industry.

This report 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.

The research forecasts that 100 million dollars of graphene will be sold in 2018 into a range of applications, including RFID, smart packaging, supercapacitors, composites, ITO replacement, sensors, logic and memory, etc.

Who should buy this report?

Players active in:

- Commercialising graphene and carbon nanotubes
- Providing materials that graphene will rival including silver nanowires, silver nanoparticles, ITO, carbon black, carbon fibre, etc
- Assessing the use of graphene as additive in composites and epoxies
- Developing transparent conductors and alternatives to ITO
- Feeding into the graphene supply chain including graphite miners
- Producing and using conductive inks, particularly for smart packaging applications
- Assessing options for RFID inks
- Providing energy storage solutions including batteries and supercapacitors
- Developing transistors including printed ones
- Investing in emerging technologies
