The graphene industry is approaching a period of rapid commercial growth. High profile large volume applications are beginning to emerge in thermal management, energy storage, polymer reinforcement, anti-corrosion coatings and more.
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 continues to grow surprisingly fast. Both top-down and bottom-up manufacturing approaches continue to improve and importantly consistency is being achieved and costs continue to fall.
The early use-cases will predominantly see graphene used as an additive; multiple applications are completing their qualification periods and coming to market. Beyond that there are increasing examples of the role graphene will play in next-generation electronic applications. Graphene is also just one member of a growing 2D material platform. We are beginning to unleash the potential for these materials and the commercial impact will be hugely significant.
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.
A great opportunity to network with a R&D, start-up and end-user company, all in the same day.
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.
