Is Graphene on the Verge of Commercial Success?

Graphene was first isolated in 2004 at the University of Manchester, going on to win the Nobel prize in 2010. Since its discovery, the materials has been lauded as a "wonder material" with superlative characteristics; the strongest material, the most conductive material, impermeable to gases - the list goes on.
Despite intense academic interest, commercial success has not been straightforward for the graphene market, with many companies having relied on grants and funding rounds to continue operations. However, it appears that a transition point has now been reached, with profitable graphene companies emerging amidst a seemingly endless list of product launches.
IDTechEx has covered the graphene market for over a decade and in their latest report, "Graphene Market & 2D Materials Assessment 2024-2034: Technologies, Markets, Players", provides a critical independent view of the entire graphene industry.
There are many challenges and questions that remain when assessing the graphene market, but perhaps the most important is understanding which applications will drive commercial adoption, both in terms of material volume and timeline.
This webinar will tackle the elusive question of what will be graphene's "killer application", while providing a detailed overview of the graphene market as commercial success begins to grow. It will include:
  • Introduction to the broad family of materials under the graphene umbrella, and the varied manufacturing methods
  • The status and outlook for the graphene market
  • Analysis of potential killer applications: A deep dive into several application areas with commercial examples, pain points, and market outlook
  • Commentary on the effect of commercial success for the graphene market
