In a new article by IDTechEX Research Director Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, “Graphene: The Evolving Application Landscape,” projections of both early and semi-commercial prototype phases are expected to take place over the course of 8-10 years for concrete, cement and asphalt additives bearing graphene or carbon nanotubes.

The article is based on a new IDTechEX report, “Graphene, 2D Materials and Carbon Nanotubes: Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2019-29.”

Inside the Article

While the graphene industry is just beginning to enter a phase of growth, the phase doesn’t come without previously accumulating 10-12 years of experience. In recounting those years through the Graphene report, Ghaffarzadeh’s article offers opinions about the most recent past and future outlooks of what the industry has in store.

In a new article by IDTechEX Research Director Dr. Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, “Graphene: The evolving application landscape,” projections of both early and semi-commercial prototype phases are expected to take place over the course of 8-10 years for concrete, cement and asphalt additives bearing graphene or carbon nanotubes.

“The industry at first overestimated the value proposition of graphene to different sectors,” writes Ghaffarzadeh.

“It is now more realistic about segment-specific prospects although some recalibration of expectations as well as segment-specific value propositions is still ongoing. The building of this commercial application know-how is an important and indispensable part of the learning curve of the industry and represents a source of competitive advantage.”

The observations are consistent with various demonstrations completed by admixture developers seeking performance properties achievable in finished concrete through dosages of nano-scale cylinders, with wall thickness recorded at the diameter of a single carbon atom.

Over the past decade, researchers in construction materials have been able to gain significant experience with graphene because of the ability to approach elements or compounds at an atomic scale.

Through a downloadable table, readers can see multiple applications (some already in the market) and how they succeed against one another. A brief highlight of some of the applications include energy storage, thermal management and plastic additives.

Additionally, the report also offers detailed analysis of the technological and commercial development progress and market forecasts for graphene segmented by more than 20 applications.
