Graphene Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2014-2024
Carbon Materials: Diamond, Graphite and Graphene : 29 May, 2014
New research by Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Head of Consulting, IDTechEx shows that graphene markets will grow from around $20 million in 2014 to more than $390 million in 2024, at the material level. The market will be split across many application sectors; each attracting a different type of graphene manufactured using different means. The market today remains dominated by research interest but the composition will change as other sectors such as energy storage and composites grow. The value chain will also transform as companies will move up the chain to offer intermediary products, capturing more value and cutting the time to market and uncertainty for end-users.

Assessing the real opportunity for graphene in a fragmented market
Carbon Materials: Diamond, Graphite and Graphene : 16 March, 2014
Graphene has enormous commercial potential. Its growth however is being hampered by two factors.
