Global Graphene Market Expands with Increasing Research and Development Activities

Graphene is an allotrope of carbon made up of closely packed carbon atoms in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. It is a crucial component of graphite and is known to be the first two-dimensional material of the world. Popular for being flexible and strong, graphene is used for several purposes in developed regions. Researchers are investing time, effort, and money to research the possible ways in which graphene can be used. Currently, this material is being used in automotive design, electronics, energy, aerospace and defense, and healthcare due to its unique properties.

Increasing Applications of Graphene Oxide Boost Global Graphene Market

The global graphene market is segmented on the basis of product, end user, and region. On the basis of product, the market is segmented into mono-layer and bi-layer graphene, graphene oxide, graphene nanoplatelets, and others such as graphene multilayer. Of all the product segments, graphene oxide held a dominating of more than 40% of the global graphene market in 2014. The increasing number of applications of graphene oxide is the prime growth driver for this market. Analysts predict that this trend is expected to continue in the coming years as well.
