Global and China Graphene Industry Report, 2016-2020

Graphene, first discovered in 2004, is now the thinnest and hardest nanomaterial. The virtually transparent material absorbs only 2.3% of the incident light, with higher thermal conduction coefficient, very high electron mobility at room temperature, and lower electrical resistance.

In 2015, the graphene market size in China exceeded RMB500 million, accounting for about 25% of the global total. In the future, as manufacturers keep expanding their capacity and making breakthroughs in technical R&D, graphene will find wider applications, thus stimulating the rapid development of the market. We expect that China’s graphene market size will grow at a compound annual rate of over 90.0% in 2016-2020.

At present, the graphene industry is at the stage of R&D and industrialization at a time when all countries are aggressively getting down to patent application. In 2015, the global graphene patent filings exceeded 6,000, which mainly came from China, South Korea, the United States, and other countries. Particularly, China’s patent fillings, which are mainly involved in such fields as energy storage devices, transparent electrode, and composites, occupied more than 50%.

Graphene producers are mainly concentrated in the United States, China, and the UK, and the players consist of Northern Graphite,CVD Equipment,Focus Graphite, Beijing Graphene Holding Group, The Sixth Element, and 2D Carbon, etc. However, owing to their higher product R&D expenditure, graphene manufacturers are generally in the red. For example, The Sixth Element and 2D Carbon, though achieving mass-production of graphene, each still made a loss of more than RMB15 million in 2015.

At present, the downstream application of graphene in China principally focuses on powder, that is, graphene is applied as modified additives in the fields like lithium battery, super-capacitors, and composites. In the future, with more breakthroughs in production technology, product performance will get further improved, so that the applications would be expanded to wearable devices, thermal conductive materials, energy conservation, environmental protection, and other fields.

Lithium battery: graphene has been widely applied in lithium battery as additives of anode and cathode materials. In 2015, the market size of graphene used in lithium battery made up over 70%. In the future, driven by new energy vehicles, lithium battery industry will continue to develop rapidly and have the steadily growing demand for graphene. We project that in 2015-2020 the market size of graphene used in lithium battery will grow at a compound annual rate of above 50%.
