Graphene Industry Report – Graphene Light bulbs and Graphene 3D Lab

June 18th 2015 – Graphene Industry Report Summary:

Industry report on graphene news, technological developments and breakthroughs. There are reports of the production of a graphene light bulb the thinnest in the world.  Yesterday was LED light bulbs and now the future is graphene lighting your life. Columbia University research teams have produced a light bulb chip that super heats graphene to produce light.

Graphene company stock highlight, Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSXV: GGG) (OTCQB: GPHBF). The company Graphene 3D Lab has partnered up with+Ideum for Graphene Development. Graphene 3D Lab engages in research, development and production of polymer composite graphene based filaments for fused filament fabrication (FFF) in 3D printers.

Large- Scale Graphene Production vs. Useful Production

A research team at Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) claim to have created continuous sheets of graphene (1 layer thick) using the CVD process. They also claim to have been able to produce graphene fibers. You can read the research article here.

Though this type of production of graphene is actually not as rare as one might think. The real breakthroughs that graphene investors need to pay attention to is when useful graphene is created in a cost effective manner.

Which Graphene Companies to Invest in?

The graphene industry is full of buzz. There are new graphene developments every month. Whether it is new findings from an Ivy League research lab or a graphene company issuing its initial public offering. It is all very exciting. But it is also all very confusing. So how do you know which graphene stocks you should buy? Here are some tips for investing in graphene:

  1. Has the company found its niche?

It is important to find a graphene company that has decided what direction it wants to go. Does the company have focus? It can be difficult for a company to “be everything to everyone.” Generally good companies develop a strategy which is clear on what product, niche, geography, and value proposition they plan to focus on. Is the graphene company you are interested planning mass graphene production, mobile phone applications or patent licensing?

Global Nanotechnology Market to Reach 30.4 Billion Dollars by 2015

dollars

Global Industry Analysts have recently announced the publication of their comprehensive global outlook on the nanotechnology market. Following on from last year’s global report on the Nanocomposites market, which forecast the industry to be worth 1.3 billion pounds by the year 2015, the latest report recognises how the nanotechnology market has managed to weather the storm of the economic downturn without erosion of value. Demand from the defence and pharma industries have helped to insulate the market from the worst of the recession and government support across the globe has been a primary source of market activity.

Carbon nanotubes set to shake up smart window market

stained glass - smart windows

A new market research report prepared by NanoMarkets and published by Smart Window Markets – 2012 has earmarked carbon nanotubes as the most likely replacement for current smart window technology.

As reported here before, carbon nanotubes have featured in the story of graphene for some time. Essentially a rolled form of graphene, nanotubes are proving to be at the forefront of developments in many different market sectors, with uses as diverse as nanosized needles for medical use to super light but strong windmill blades. In this latest report carbon nanotube and silver nanostructure inks are suggested as a replacement for the currently dominant ITO technology.
