The global graphene market was valued at US$3.213 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 36.88% over the forecast period to reach US$28.916 billion by 2027.

Graphene is the world’s strongest and thinnest material with high thermal and electrical conductivity. Increasing demand for flexible, lightweight, and renewable materials with a long-life span is the primary factor driving the growth of the global graphene market. Graphene is used for composites & coating materials, nanoplatelets, structural components of aircraft, nanotechnology in the electronic industry, and efficient and stronger weapons in the defence sector. The material is also utilized for making batteries, conductors, and generators to enhance energy efficiency and the overall performance of devices. Graphene can be combined with metals, polymers, and ceramics, to improve the conductivity and the thermal and pressure resistance of the composites. Graphene is still in the early phase of development and has not reached its full potential in most of its application areas. There have been continuous efforts in research and development to enhance the quality of graphene.

Market Drivers

The graphene market is witnessing an increase in new products owing to the rising demand from developing economies such as China, India, and Thailand. China is focusing on increasing the production of graphene and investing a huge amount of capital in the research and development of graphene nanoplatelets. Graphenea, a Spanish company, is engaged in developing and supplying graphene oxide to various research groups and large multinationals for their product development. Graphene oxide is growing due to its wide application scope in biomedical, solar cells, composites, batteries, supercapacitors, and biosensors, among others.


The graphene market has been segmented by product and end-user industry. Segmentation by product includes graphene oxide, graphene flakes, graphene sheets, and graphene inks. By end-user industry, the market has been segmented into consumer electronics, energy and power, aerospace & defense, and others. Graphene is a strong material that can be used to enhance the strength of other materials. Graphene-enhanced composite materials can be used in aerospace, building materials, mobile devices, and in many other applications. Graphene is a good conductive material for heat, and this advantage of graphene can be used for making LED, thermal foils for mobile devices, and thermal films. Graphene properties like being the thinnest material are driving the market for batteries and supercapacitors that can store more energy and help charge products even faster. Demand for the graphene market is growing due to various applications of graphene-like anti-corrosion coatings and paints, efficient and precious sensors, faster and efficient electronics, and many others.

Key Developments

  • July 2021: Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. started a joint venture transaction with the Canadian-based graphene company, Mason Graphite Inc. to launch a new company by the name of Black Swan Graphene (BSG), aiming for the rapid expansion of bulk graphene production, large-scale commercial production and application development facility in Québec, Canada as per the press release by Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd in July 2021.
  • June 2021: With Jiangsu Dingying New Materials Co Ltd, the University has agreed to a £1.19 million, six-year collaborative research agreement. Researchers at the University's School of Engineering's Institute for Materials and Processes will study how to best utilize two different types of graphene-based materials, including nanostructured membranes, to filter out impurities and extract valuable substances from effluent liquids and gases under this collaborative agreement as per the 2021 article by the University of Edinburgh.

Impact of COVID-19 on Graphene Market

There are a variety of small and major competitors in the graphene market, making it highly competitive. Throughout the world, the COVID virus caused havoc, particularly in Europe and the United States. Worldwide, firms ceased operations and shut down their production facilities to prevent the virus from spreading further. The outputs of developed and emerging economies contracted. Corporations avoided supply chain bottlenecks by reassessing the life cycle and identifying potential factors that will impact the operation, particularly those that are dependent on geographical locations. To address this global spread, numerous inventions and efforts have been made to expand currently used applications. The graphene industry is anticipated to actively participate in the development of various COVID-19 defense technologies and applications. However, as the market responds to and recovers from the coronavirus crisis, corporate leaders must anticipate risks and consider opportunities.
