Some experts say the global market for Graphene-based products could be worth £500m by 2020.

It’s already being used in wearable tech, tennis rackets and lightbulbs, but more significantly it’s being developed for use in cars, aircrafts, buildings and energy storage.

Strong, light and flexible, it could dramatically increase efficiency.

New markets will open and existing processes will be revolutionised.

Its unique structure means there are possibilities for an enormous impact on water purification processes.

Graphene’s electrical and thermal properties could be huge for the electronics market and it could have multiple uses across healthcare, sport and defence.

And the great thing is, the UK is a leading figure in the development of Graphene.

Graphene and the Industrial Strategy

As part of the Industrial Strategy the UK is investing in clean growth - growing the national income whilst cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

With graphene's potential to benefit electronics, energy storage and numerous other sectors it's clear to see how significant it could become for the UK economy.
