The market size for the global advanced carbon materials was 58.3 kilo tons in 2015. According to a report by Grand View Research, the market share of the global advanced carbon materials market is expected to reach USD 5.29 billion by 2024. Various forms of carbon materials are graphene, carbon foams, structural graphite, carbon nano tubes and carbon fibers. They are widely used as engineering materials because they exhibit superior properties such as high tensile strength, good temperature tolerance, low thermal expansion and excellent stiffness.
In 2015, the demand for graphene was 481.2 tons. Graphene is used as a protective coating for manufacturing smartphones and other electronic devices. Besides, a number of companies are now focusing on innovation to develop products catering to niche applications. A new graphene-derived resistance standard measurement kit was developed by Sweden based Graphensic in 2015. This was capable of observing Quantum Hall effect at low magnetic temperature as well as high temperature.
