About the magic material- Graphene

In 2004, two physicists from the University of Manchester successfully separated graphene from graphite. Graphene is currently the thinnest, strongest, and good electrical and thermal conductivity nanomaterial found.

As early as 2012, the American Society of Electrical and Electronic Engineering believed that graphene could replace silicon-based materials in the future and lead the world into the carbon era. Therefore, graphene is known as the brightest pearl in the materials industry.

 

China International Graphene Innovation Conference held in September 2018, the conference collected more than 200 graphene application projects with great market prospects around the world. In the same year, Huawei released the mate20X mobile phone, which is also known as the world's first graphene heat dissipation mobile phone. Samsung released Note10 is also expected to use graphene batteries that can be fully charged in 12 minutes.

 

According to the report of the consulting company ReportsnReprts, the global graphene market in 2018 was nearly 200 million U.S. dollars, with an annual growth of 84.8%. In 2023, the overall market size is estimated to exceed 1 billion U.S. dollars. Foresight Industry Research Institute believes that in 2020, the application of lithium batteries and other new energy applications in the graphene industry will account for about 50%.

 

Global Graphene Index report in 2017 shows that China, the United States, and South Korea are in the leading echelon. The overall strength is based on China, but the gap with the second country - the United States is gradually narrowing.
