Graphene, the world’s first 2-D carbon material, also known as the “wonder material” is ideal for many applications in various end-use industries. Graphene is an efficient conductor, fire resistant, incredibly flexible yet 200 times stronger than steel and an ultra-light material.

North America is the largest growing market for graphene in 2014. The demand of graphene from its various applications such as electronics and polymer composite materials is continuously showing an upward trend. The U.S. is the leading graphene market in the world. The growth is mainly due to the extensive patent activities adopted by major established players along with various cross-industry collaborations for the development of graphene and its potential applications.

Among the types of graphene, Graphene Oxide (GO) dominated the market in 2014. The low cost, tensile strength, high elasticity, efficient conductivity, transparency, and ease of production make GO a preferred graphene type among major graphene manufacturers and applications. These applications include medical, bio-sensing and disease detection, polymer materials, electrode mateirals in batteries, and nanofiltration membranes, among others.

Among various applications, the electronics segment dominated the graphene market in 2014 followed by composites and other applications. Other applications of graphene include energy, coatings, sensors, catalysts, and so on. The increasing demand for semi-transparent, flexible, lightweight, and long life span Li-ion batteries and electronic products are the key factors owing the growth of graphene in the electronics market.

This study aims to estimate the market size of graphene in 2015, in terms of volume and value, and project its demand by 2020.

The global graphene market is expected to reach USD 278.47 Million by 2020, with a growth rate of 42.8% from 2015 to 2020

Graphene is the world’s first 2-D material, available in a thin layer of tightly packed carbon atoms bonded in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. It is manufactured from graphite, through various processes such as exfoliation, epitaxial growth, and chemical vapor deposition (CVD), according to the application-specific requirement. It is also known as the “wonder material” owing to its exceptional properties and applications.

The market is expected to grow at a firm annualized growth of 40% between 2015 and 2020. Factors such as fire resistant, flexibility, non-toxicity, pressure resistant, tensile strength fuel the growth of graphene in various applications globally. The growing demand from these applications such as display & touch screens energy storage in Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries, rust free coating, printed electronics, and conductive inks have led to increase in the consumption of graphene in the global advanced materials market.

The increasing number of patents filed for graphene-based applications by global players, growing manufacturing industries, and continuous collaborative agreements between research institutes, universities, and companies are key factors for the growth of graphene in the global market.

North America was the largest graphene market in 2014. Among all the countries, the U.S. dominates the market in 2014. The growing manufacturing industries, increasing collaborations between research institutes/universities and companies, and increasing demand of graphene-based composite and coating materials are the key growth drivers for graphene in this region.

The market is in growth stage in countries such as China, India, Japan, Canada, Germany, Spain, the U.K. and France, among others. There are a large number of players in the market. The key players are focused on initiating collaborative agreements, expanding their operations, launching new products in the emerging markets, and enhancing their portfolio to provide cost-efficient and high-quality graphene-based materials to various applications such as catalysts, coatings, composites, electronics, energy, and sensors, among others.
