Graphene, referred as a wonder material, possesses an unparalleled combination of electrical, thermal, and optical properties. It is single atom thick but is stronger than steel and tougher than diamond. These qualities of graphene have enabled a myriad of applications from lightweight products to high capacity batteries and stronger materials. Graphene was invented way back in 2004 and, since then, many academic and commercial groups have begun researching on the potential application of the material across various end users.
The most notable property of graphene-enhanced composites is their fracture toughness which makes them an important material for engineering applications. The combination of graphene with various matrices is so strong that it not only reinforces the matrix but also introduces new mechanical and electronic properties to the material. Graphene is frequently reinforced with polymers such as thermoplastics and epoxies, among others.
Graphene-enhanced composites have started to mark their presence in the commercial market. However, the growth has been rather slow. Over the years, it has been observed that any new material takes years of research and development to attain the mainstream adoption. There are challenges with the mass production of graphene which are acting as hindrance for the growth of the market. Graphene-enhanced composites are expected to be fully commercialized in the next five years, provided a mass production method is devised by the key players operating in the market.
Graphene-enhanced polymer composite, metal composite, and ceramic composite are some of the graphene-enhanced composites widely used in the end user industries. As a consequence of the extensive application of graphene-enhanced polymer composites across various domains and verticals, such as aerospace & defense and automotive, among others, it is the most commonly used composites in the graphene-enhanced composites market. The growth of the segment can also be attributed to its easy fabrication process as compared to its counterparts.
In terms of value, the global graphene-enhanced composites market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28.3% during the forecast period 2018-2023. Some of the factors driving the growth of the global market for graphene-enhanced composites include the rising demand for lightweight materials, government regulations to curb the carbon emissions, and increasing research and development by the key players operating in the market. There is a growing demand from end user, such as automotive, for lightweight materials and for use in batteries and other components of heavier electric vehicles. Graphene-enhanced composites market growth is backed by funding from government of various countries. For example, in 2013, the European Commission launched a Graphene Flagship program which was aimed at addressing big scientific and technological challenges through research efforts. Similar steps have been taken by governments of various countries including the U.S., Japan, China, and South Korea, among others. These initiatives are mainly aimed at building awareness about this 'wonder material' and facilitate the collaborations across various stakeholders in the industry.
Along with this, tech companies are also investing in research and development to develop the understanding of materials. For instance, Samsung has already applied for many graphene-related patents. Additionally, several universities are also steering ahead the research process pertaining to graphene.
In 2017, the aerospace & defense segment dominated the global graphene-enhanced composites market. The aerospace & defense segment is effectively exploiting the graphene-enhanced composites for both the civilian and military aircrafts. The use of graphene-enhanced composites in aircrafts has led to an improved aircraft efficiency, lower consumption of fuel, and the development of aircrafts with lower carbon emissions. Along with this, graphene-enhanced composites are used to manufacture smart aero structures which absorb less moisture and are damage resistant.
Graphene is used in the form of either graphene oxide or graphene nanoplatelet for the production of graphene-enhanced composites. In 2017, graphene-enhanced polymer composites dominated the global graphene-enhanced composites market with a market share of 90.4% in terms of volume. Graphene-enhanced polymer composites are multiphase materials consisting of a polymer having graphene dispersed in the polymer matrix which significantly affect its physical properties. Graphene-enhanced polymer composites are known to have high thermal conductivity. Polymers have many advantages such as low cost, lightweight, and good corrosion resistance, which makes them an ideal material to be fabricated with graphene.
In 2017, Europe accounted for the largest market revenue share in the global graphene-enhanced composites market. Being one of the largest graphene material manufacturer and supplier, Europe is home to a state-of-the-art process of innovation in the field of graphene-enhanced composites. The governments of various countries in the Europe region are highly supportive of the potential steps taken by the key players toward advancement in the field of graphene-enhanced composites. The government has been funding a lot of research initiatives for the commercialization of graphene. Apart from the government funding, key players in the Europe region are also increasing their R&D investment to promote an early commercialization of graphene-based products. In 2017, the U.K., followed by Germany, generates the highest revenue in the region.
