Graphene – commercial potentials and challenges

IDTechEx Research is launching a special edition dedicated to graphene on its Printed Electronics World online journal.
For two consecutive weeks, you will read invited articles outlining the views of select industry and academic players about the commercial potential and challenges facing the emerging graphene industry. The selected players represent a broad cross-section of the industry, discussing aspects related to the entire industry, different production techniques and multiple products.

In this special edition of Printed Electronics World, you will hear about a range of issues, including (a) the need for an association body that can bring clarity to the market; (b) commercialisation challenges stemming from the rapid growth in patenting activity; (c) the need for, and methods of, changing the price and performance paradigm of composites using graphene; (d) the integration and manufacturing challenges involved in bringing graphene to products; (e) the progress with high-frequency electronics; (d) perspectives on the use of 2D graphene-like materials in composites; and (e) the emphasis on cost as a differentiation against carbon nanotubes.

The contributors to this special edition include Graphene Technologies, Grafen Industries Co, Angstron Materials, Vorbeck Materials, Graphene Laboratories, Xolve, AMO GmBH, GRAnPH Nanotech and the University of Cambridge. Many of these companies will be presenting at Graphene LIVE!

IDTechex  invites you to attend their Graphene LIVE! event, which takes place on 17 & 18 April in Berlin, to learn more, network and do business. Graphene LIVE! is a tradeshow and conference co-located alongside the Printed Electronics, Energy Harvesting and Supercapacitor events. Co-location benefits the graphene industry by bringing together the end users and suppliers.
