Opening presentation from our 2016 event by Mr Raghu Das, CEO of IDTechEx.Watch Now.
The graphene industry is going through an interesting period. The number of suppliers has grown, resulting in increased production capacity worldwide. There is continued appetite for investment and the end user interest in graphene and its potential grows surprisingly fast. End users from many industries now want to evaluate graphene and suppliers are increasingly building up very robust pipelines.
The go-to-market strategy is still largely based on substituting existing materials. Here, graphene is still in the realm of offering more for more (or the same at the best) although a more-for-same value proposition may soon be reached if cost reductions exceed their current rapid trajectory.
The first wave of products have already hit the markets. Most are small volumes and somewhat gimmicky, capitalising on the good brand of 'graphene'. The best however is to yet to come as new applications steadily make their way through the long and winding qualification tunnels.
Graphene & 2D Materials is part of the IDTechEx Show! and co-located alongside a series of synergistic events on printed electronics wearable, 3D Printing and electric vehicles. Each of these is a full two-day executive conference, co-located with a common exhibition. We co-locate these events because there is strong overlap across these topics, exposing you to the full relevant supply chains and customer and supplier bases, saving you time and money from attending separate events.See all co-located events
It was a meaningful and very informative event, a good opportunity to understand the current global trend of graphene and its application.
This event was a good combination of application-related conference talks and the opportunity for in-depth discussions at the exhibition booths.
The event presented the latest developments in commercial applications of graphene & provided a unique platform to help create the value chains.
This event is really focused on real things, real devices and people are focused on concrete business.
It was the most business oriented graphene and nanotechnology conference that we have attended. We have made many contacts and also partners.
