DUBLIN, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ws39s6/the_graphene) has announced the addition of the "The Graphene Opportunity Report" report to their offering.
(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )
A decade ago when the first edition of the Nanotechnology Opportunity Report was published, there were predictions of untold riches for early investors, the replacement of all manufacturing as we know it, and the mythical trillion-dollar market.
The author went against the grain by predicting that it would be hard for anyone to make money from nanomaterials, and that the real value would be in the applications. This has been borne out by the failure of even large global companies such as Mitsubishi Chemical and Bayer to make much headway with fullerenes and carbon nanotubes, and the failure of countless smaller nanomaterials producers.
On the other hand companies making use of nanomaterials, Germany's Magforce Technologies and the US based BIND Therapeutics have shown what can be achieved when nanomaterials are applied to large addressable markets, in this case drug delivery.
Is Graphene The New Nanotech?
A similar amount of hype currently surrounds graphene, with wild predictions of applications ranging from microelectronics to water treatment. This report examines these claims and taking the rational approach for which the author is known, considers how valid these are and evaluates the chances of success.
The author also looks in detail at the graphene producers. Graphene comes in a wide range of forms, each with its own particular set of addressable applications. No one producer covers all applications and many are destined to be niche players. As with nanomaterials, many companies currently producing graphene are destined to burn brightly and then be unceremoniously snuffed out when scale up or access to applications fails to materialise.
As with all of these reports, the author looks beyond the hype and takes a rational and dispassionate look at the entire graphene value chain, from graphite to THz electronics. There will be long-term winners, and the author indicates what strategies are required to join this small elite band, and provides a wealth of lessons from previous experience in nanotechnologies and life sciences.
Most importantly, the author looks beyond the narrow graphene or nanotechnology worlds and assesses graphene's chances of success in competing with a wide range of other technologies, many of which have not been considered by those concentrating solely on graphene.
Key Topics Covered:
A Brief History of Carbon Nanomaterials
Can Graphene Succeed Where Fullerenes Failed?
Types of Graphene
Applications of Graphene
The Graphene Opportunity
Photonics & Optoelectronics

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...

Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...
