LONDON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:
The Graphene Opportunity - A Rational View
Is Graphene The New Nanotech?
A similar amount of hype currently surrounds graphene, with wild predictions of applications ranging from microelectronics to water treatment, but is graphene the only solution?
Cientifica today announced the availability of the Graphene Opportunity Report, authored by Tim Harper and Dexter Johnson, two of the best respected names in the nanotechnology world, with a history of being both rational and accurate.The Graphene Opportunity Report looks at the impact of graphene across key markets such as advanced materials, composites, microelectronics, displays, photonics, energy generation and storage, sensors and biomedical technologies.
The Graphene Opportunity Report
This report examines those claims and taking the rational approach for which Cientifica is known, considers how valid these are and evaluates the chances of success.
We also look 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 Cientifica reports, we look beyond the hype and take a rational and dispassionate look at the entire graphene value chain, from graphite to THz electronics. There will be long-term winners, and we indicate what strategies are required to join this small elite band, and we provide a wealth of lessons from our previous experience in nanotechnologies and life sciences.
Most importantly, we look beyond the narrow graphene or nanotechnology worlds and assess 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 Graphene Opportunity Report Findings include :
- A number of oft quoted potential applications of graphene face stiff competition from other more advanced technologies;
- By 2018 over 50 companies will be producing graphene and fighting for a market worth less than $100 million;
- The 2018 market for first order applications will be approaching a billion dollars.

The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new da...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
