Expanding electronics and semiconductor industry across the globe is considered as the prime factor bolstering the global graphene market growth. Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel and is relatively tougher than diamond. In addition, it is a superior conductor of heat and electricity and finds application in memory chips as well as screens in mobile phones and laptops. It is generally used in the combined form to further enhance its durability, strength, conductivity, and toughness. Increasing purchasing power and surging demand for consumer electronics such as tablets and mobile phones is likely to propel the market demand. Moreover, graphene transmits 97 percent of light, which makes it highly transparent along with its exceptional conductive and heat carrying properties creates opportunities in next-gen electronics such as batteries and solar panels.
 

Additionally, graphene is gradually gaining popularity in the automotive and aerospace & defense industries. It is light in weight and possesses exceptional strength and toughness. Growing demand for lighter and safe vehicles is likely to offer ample opportunities for the product to be used as an additive in composite materials. Furthermore, proliferating automotive industry with over 95 million units of automobiles in 2018 and growing concern for safe and fuel-efficient vehicles is expected to propel the demand for the product in the coming years. Also, growing attempts to strengthen vehicle structures as well as to improve the crashworthiness has created a demand for the product in the manufacturing of greener and lighter cars. For instance, Geneva Motor Show, Spania launched the world’s first supercar and incorporated graphene into the car structure which reduces the overall weight of the vehicle, which, in turn, reduces the fuel consumption and emits less emissions.
 

However, high production cost of graphene and the environmental impacts associated with it is expected to hinder the global market growth during the assessment period.
 

Graphene is typically a single layer material extracted from graphite by various technologies such as chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and mechanical exfoliation, among others. It is a hexagonal lattice consisting of thin layer of tightly packed six carbon atoms. It is regarded as the world’s thinnest and strongest material and exhibits superior thermal and electrical conductivity. Ongoing product innovation and heavy public and private investment to exploit the properties of the product for various applications is expected to increase its demand during the review period. Graphene market outook is at a nascent stage and is expected to gain significant penetration in broad range of industries in the following years.
