Graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) refer to attractive materials with excellent planar structure, high aspect ratio, electrical conductivity, and mechanical toughness. Their nano-powder form, appealing chemo-physical properties, and low cost make them a suitable material choice for advanced nanocomposites. Moreover, GNPs polymer conductive inks are functionalized with flexible plastic substrates for manufacturing durable and high-performance devices like antennas, compliant electrodes for energy applications, and electromagnetic interference shielding films. At present, researchers worldwide are utilizing cellular substrates or advanced biodegradable materials to construct sustainable, eco-friendly product variants that can help in electronic waste management.
Graphene Nanoplatelets Market Trends:
The market is mainly driven by the extensive applications of GNPs in numerous industries. For instance, they are used to enhance the characteristics of polymeric materials, including lubricants, paints, coatings, natural or synthetic rubber, thermoset composites, and thermoplastic elastomers, due to their nano-scale volume as well as the form and surface structure. The thriving construction industry is also bolstering the market growth. Moreover, due to the diverse characteristics of GNPs, they are also used in reinforced plastic materials and wearable electronics. Apart from this, GNPs are combined with polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) to develop a new generation sensor technology. The demand for these GNP-based smart sensors is expanding for tactile devices and electronic robotic skins. Furthermore, leading players are employing innovative approaches that bind conductive nanoflakes to smart textiles under severe mechanical stresses and laundry cycles. This helps to introduce reliable and washable GNP-based materials with innovative electrically conductive features. This, in confluence with the rising trend of miniaturization, is anticipated to influence the demand for GNP-based smart textiles worldwide and strengthen the growth of the market.
