According to a recent study report published by Market Research Future, the global market of 2D materials is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The market is projected to demonstrate a spectacular growth by 2027 with a striking CAGR during the anticipated period (2017 – 2027). Graphene is the widely used 2D material due to its extensive range of applications in various sectors and is expected to hold the largest share of the 2D Materials market for materials segment. Whereas, automobile and electronics sub segments in the end user 2D materials market are expected to show major growth during the forecast period. This is owing to the rise in use of 2D materials in automobile, airplanes, and electronics industries to lower manufacturing cost and time is the major factor driving the growth of 2D materials market.
December 2017 – Graphene-based wearable textile close to commercialisation. ACS Nano says the method could allow the Graphene textiles to be produced at rates 150 metres per minute.
November 2017 – Thomas Swan has developed prototype of Graphene-reinforced carbon fiber composite. Initial independent testing with unidirectional carbon fibers reportedly gave very encouraging results. This prototype was prepared by working collaboratively with an established and experienced third party.2D Materials Global Market - Competitive Analysis
