The global graphene market size is expected to reach USD 3,752.9 million by 2030, expanding at 46.6% CAGR from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This growth can be attributed to the growing electronics industry in emerging economies and high penetration in composites application. Furthermore, the product has also caught the attention of manufacturers in the battery industry owing to its remarkable thermal & electrical conductivity and chemically inert nature.
The market is also witnessing increasing investments in research & development work for increasing the penetration of graphene in batteries. For instance, in 2022, Anaphite, a Bristol-based company, secured USD 4.3 million to invest in improving the EV batteries manufactured using graphene. The company is expected to use the material in lithium-ion batteries for manufacturing batteries for EVs (electric vehicles). Furthermore, the technology is expected to be ready for commercial EV manufacturing by 2028.
The energy sector is one of the key application segments owing to the rising application of graphene-based components for energy storage and energy generation. Graphene coatings are used in various batteries, conductors, and generators to improve energy efficiency and the overall performance of devices. The product is also used in the de-icing of paints and is responsible for improving wind turbine efficiency.
Graphene nanoplatelets and graphene films are two major products, primarily used in electronic goods and devices. The demand for graphene films is expected to gain momentum owing to the growing need for protective coatings on smartphones and flexible electronic devices. This has resulted in an increased production capacity of graphene-based products over the past few years.
Apart from graphite, other raw materials required for the production of graphene majorly depend on the type of manufacturing process used. Raw materials including copper, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and hydrazine are either used by commercial manufacturers or research laboratories depending on the production process used. BASF SE, Moon & Star, and Glencore are some of the key raw materials suppliers.
The global graphene industry is highly concentrated and is majorly consolidated in developed regions such as North America and Europe. The market exhibits the presence of a large number of suppliers and manufacturers in China. The U.S., UK, Canada, and other developed countries have been major markets owing to the increasing efforts on research and development undertaken by several multinational corporations, research institutes, and manufacturers.
