The global graphene market size was valued at USD 432.7 million in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 570.3 million in 2024 to USD 5,193.2 million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 31.8% during the forecast period. Asia Pacific dominated the graphene market with a market share of 34.43% in 2023.

Graphene is a carbon allotrope composed of a monolayer of atoms arranged in a 2D honeycomb lattice nanostructure. It is revolutionizing the aerospace industry as it improves the functionality of the coatings and composites used in drones, helicopters, planes, and spaceship manufacturing. It helps in increasing the mechanical properties making it thinner and decreasing weight.

The development of graphene technology and its applications accelerated considerably during the COVID-19 pandemic due to its exceptional properties including flexibility, conductivity, and antibacterial & antiviral efficacy. Graphene-based protective equipment, drug delivery solutions, bio-sensors, and treatment systems were developed and utilized to fight against COVID-19. However, contrary to the healthcare and biomedical sectors, the electronics and energy sectors experienced a negative impact from the outbreak owing to the slowdown of logistics, decline in demand, and restricted access to raw materials for production.

Graphene Market Trends

Increasing R&D Activities of Graphene-based Sensors is the Emerging Trend in the Market  

Graphene is an active chemical sensor in electrolyte-gated arrangements. Graphene-based top-gate insulators can be manufactured with 1 to 5 nm thickness in an electrolyte, with a concentration of a few millimolars, which the best top-gate Field-Effect Transistors (FETs) that have Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) cannot match.

A graphene-based photodetector works by computing photon flux. The photon flux is measured by converting the energy of the absorbed photons into electrical current. These graphene-based photodetectors have a much more extensive operating wavelength range than traditional detectors based on III-V and IV group semiconductors.

The market for photoelectric sensors is fundamentally the same as indium-tin-oxide (ITO) substitutes in transparent conductors. High electrical conductivity and its transparency make it an attractive option for making transparent electrodes in photovoltaic cells and photoconductive sensors.

Graphene Market Growth Factors

Growing Product Penetration in the Electronics Industry to Aid Growth

Owing to its exceptionally high electrical & thermal conductivity and its lightweight nature, it is preferably suitable for electronics applications. The electrons in this allotrope of carbon have higher mobility and therefore speed more when applied electric field as compared to semiconductors that are extensively employed in electronic devices including silicon. Owing to these properties, it produces more proficient devices that function faster than traditional substitutes while using less power.

Owing to this material’s high mechanical resilience, it is capable of tolerating comparatively higher voltages. This is likely to influence growth as industries are embracing a greater degree of electrification. Recently, there has been progress in developing a graphene foam-based design for batteries that will possibly link the gap between capacitors and batteries. The design is based on lithium technology, and in new form has an analogous capacity-to-weight ratio to current lithium ion batteries. Moreover, it can discharge and recharge as quickly as a capacitor and can discharge totally in 20 seconds.

Graphene film is one of the strong alternatives for indium tin oxide. Indium tin oxide is a commercial product that is extensively used in touch screens of smartphones, and tablet computers as a transparent conductor, and electrodes in OLEDs and solar cells. Growing demand for touchscreen technologies and products is likely to foster the graphene market growth.


Negative Environmental Impact is Likely to Restrain Market Growth

Graphene Nanomaterials (GFN) have obtained acceptance within nanotechnology research owing to their adaptable carbon-based structure, which enables them to be used for various applications, moving forward in different fields. However, there are certain concerns involving the material and its role in a sustainable future.

Researchers at the Riverside Bourns of Engineering, the University of California found that graphene oxide (GO) nanoparticles are very mobile in streams and lakes and can cause a negative impact on the environment if released. The use of GO is increasing but at the same time, it is considered to be toxic to humans as well. As the material production increases, it is vital for regulatory bodies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to understand the probable environmental impact of the product. These factors are expected to limit market growth.
