In the latest issue of Nanotech Magazine (http://www.futuremarketsinc.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=157&Itemid=65) leading graphene industry figures report on the growth of the market. Early Graphene results were limited to academic research but increasingly industry giants are in the running too. IBM has produced several electronic component prototypes, while Samsung has produced a flatscreen (70cm in the diagonal) with Graphene electrodes. The tennis racket maker Head used tennis champions Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova to promote rackets made with Graphene. BASF and Daimler-Benz have designed a concept electric car called Smart Forvision incorporating Graphene in a conductive e-textile.
Vor-ink™, a graphene-based conductive ink that first became commercially available in 2009, is looking to not only displace silver and carbon inks in the $3 billion conductive ink market, but create new markets, such as those in smart packaging and wearable electronics. Joe Roy-Mayhew from Vorbeck Materials outlines the company’s market impact and commercial activities, while also providing a succinct picture of the wider market.
Every day, there are new announcements of amazing feats about what Graphene can achieve; over 100 times stronger than steel, more conductive than copper, yet totally flexible and with a staggering surface area of in excess of 2,500m2 per gram. What is the commercial reality in delivering this new nano material and what is their relevance to real products? RJ Gibbs from Haydale sorts the myth from the reality.
