Report Description

Global Graphene Oxide Market is anticipated to display a CAGR of ~32% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Globally, energy utility and automotive & transportation industries is adopting graphene oxide which is used in manufacturing of solar cells and as electrodes of lithium-ion batteries. Owing to such factors, the demand of graphene oxide is increasing which is produced from the oxidation of graphite. Therefore, with the increasing production of graphite, supply of graphene oxide would also propel. For instance, the production of natural graphite, a key raw material to produce graphene, has increased to 1,128.2 thousand tons in 2019 from 981.1 thousand tons in 2010. However, in the light of COVID-19. the production had decreased to 909.7 thousand tons in 2020.

Graphene oxide is distinctly associated to electrodes for energy storage systems supercapacitors and lithium batteries. Today lithium batteries possess maximum energy capacitance. Li-ion batteries have been the primary solutions for automakers to power plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs). High-energy density, charge retention capacity, and low maintenance are some of the benefits that have accelerated the growth of Li-ion as a battery technology.

Other factor driving the growth of the graphene oxide market globally is high focus of the companies worldwide to make much more technologically enabled & cost-efficient solar cells and lithium-ion batteries.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, powder-based holds a considerable market share.”

Based on type, the graphene oxide market is categorized into powder-based graphene oxide and solution-based graphene oxide. Powder-based graphene oxide is noted for its mechanical and thermal properties. The raw material graphite is chemically processed to obtain monolayer flakes of graphene oxide.

“Amongst application, energy held lucrative market share in 2020.”

Based on application, the graphene oxide market is divided into medical, energy, electronic devices, composite materials, catalytic oxidation, and others. Graphene oxide films can be deposited on essentially any substrate, and later converted into a conductor. Therefore, graphene oxide is especially fit for use in the production of transparent conductive films (TCF), like the ones used for flexible electronics, solar cells, chemical sensors. Governments focuses on green energy is propelling the demand for renewable power sources. Graphene oxide is extensively used in the production of TCF which is further used in manufacture of solar cells. Therefore, increase in demand of solar panels would result in increased TCF production which requires graphene oxide thereby fueling its demand.
