Graphene Market Size To Reach $1.60 Billion By 2030

January 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Graphene Market Growth & Trends

The global graphene market is anticipated to reach USD 1.60 billion by 2030 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 35.1% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing penetration of graphene in various end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, aerospace, construction, and medical is expected to boost the market’s demand. In addition, rising demand from various multi-national companies and research institutions for research and development purposes is further expected to escalate market growth.

The ongoing research and development in graphene production is also expected to boost product utilization in various applications. For instance, the flash joule heating technique identified in 2020 showed promising results. Studies have demonstrated that the carbon-carbon bonds are reorganized into a graphene structure when significant amounts of electricity is passed through any carbon source. By using this method, any carbon-containing material, such as coal or even trash, can be converted into numerous pounds of high-quality graphene at a comparatively low cost.

Current manufacturing methods are capital-intensive as well as require high energy and resource costs. While current amounts of graphene available in market can meet demands of researchers, full commercialization market is still in early phases. The process of developing a novel material, its manufacturing, and application for a company involves many pounds of graphene powder and hundreds of graphene sheets, as well as a significant amount of time and work. This could pose a challenge for the manufacturers of graphene.

The market is governed by a complex regulation that encompasses safety, health, and environmental concerns. The manufacturing, handling, and application of graphene materials are heavily regulated by national and international regulatory authorities. These strict guidelines include potential health risks and environmental impact while ensuring the proper production and usage. Market participants are anticipated to benefit from compliance with these regulations by gaining a competitive edge over their competitors.

The market is highly dynamic and exhibits intense competition, owing to the presence of various small and medium-scale manufacturers. Key industry participants emphasize investments in research & development and product innovations in order to gain a competitive edge.
