The Graphene Opportunity - A Rational View

Is Graphene The New Nanotech?

A similar amount of hype currently surrounds graphene, with wild predictions of applications ranging from microelectronics to water treatment, but is graphene the only solution?
Cientifica today announced the availability of the Graphene Opportunity Report, authored by Tim Harper and Dexter Johnson, two of the best respected names in the nanotechnology world, with a history of being both rational and accurate.The Graphene Opportunity Report looks at the impact of graphene across key markets such as advanced materials, composites, microelectronics, displays, photonics, energy generation and storage, sensors and biomedical technologies.

The Graphene Opportunity Report
This report examines those claims and taking the rational approach for which Cientifica is known, considers how valid these are and evaluates the chances of success.
We also look in detail at the graphene producers. Graphene comes in a wide range of forms, each with its own particular set of addressable applications. No one producer covers all applications and many are destined to be niche players. As with nanomaterials, many companies currently producing graphene are destined to burn brightly and then be unceremoniously snuffed out when scale up or access to applications fails to materialise.

As with all Cientifica reports, we look beyond the hype and take a rational and dispassionate look at the entire graphene value chain, from graphite to THz electronics. There will be long-term winners, and we indicate what strategies are required to join this small elite band, and we provide a wealth of lessons from our previous experience in nanotechnologies and life sciences.

Most importantly, we look beyond the narrow graphene or nanotechnology worlds and assess graphene’s chances of success in competing with a wide range of other technologies, many of which have not been considered by those concentrating solely on graphene.

Key Graphene Opportunity Report Findings include :
- A number of oft quoted potential applications of graphene face stiff competition from other more advanced technologies;
- By 2018 over 50 companies will be producing graphene and fighting for a market worth less than $100 million;
- The 2018 market for first order applications will be approaching a billion dollars.
