[Abstract]:
Recently, Samsung Advanced Technology Research Institute and South Korea's Chengdu University jointly announced that they have synthesized a graphene crystal that can maintain conductivity at a larger scale. Samsung said it is a screen display technology that can be used on flexible displays and wearable devices.
Recently, Samsung Advanced Technology Research Institute and South Korea's Chengdu University jointly announced that they have synthesized a graphene crystal that can maintain conductivity at a larger scale. Samsung said it is a screen display technology that can be used on flexible displays and wearable devices. Graphene is currently the thinnest and hardest nano material, with excellent light transmittance, minimum resistivity and stable structure. These features make graphene extremely suitable for making flexible, transparent touch screens. Today, with the emergence of wearable devices as the next technological revolution, the emergence of graphene flexible screens will accelerate the development of the industry.
In the past two years, curved screens or flexible screens have entered our lives. Especially curved screens have been used by Samsung and LG on smartphones and TV screens. Although it is a curved screen, there is still a big gap with the flexible screen technology that the industry expects. In the words of the industry, this is called "bending for bending."
The field of flat panel display is paying more and more attention to graphene materials, and China is no exception.
China's leading research and manufacture of carbon nanotubes and graphene
According to Boston's Lux Research, China has been a global leader in the research and manufacture of carbon nanotubes and graphene. Due to oversupply in the global market, prices have fallen, profits have fallen, and this emerging industry is likely to fluctuate.
 
Lux predicts that global market demand for graphene platlets and carbon nanotubes will be 1,520 tons and 2016 tons by 2018, respectively. However, only China's supply is sufficient to supply the global graphene nanoplatlet demand until 2016. Similarly, the total current capacity of China's carbon nanotube suppliers can meet the global demand until 2015. We believe that as the production capacity of graphene and carbon nanotube nanoplatlets increases and capacity utilization increases, prices will continue to decline, while at the same time squeezing the profitability of nanomaterials.
 
China's crazy development of carbon nanotube materials is supported by the government's 12th Five-Year Plan. In 2011-2015, despite the lack of accurate figures on government support funds, Ma believes that the government will support 20 in the 12th Five-Year Plan. Billion dollars - will be 2.5 times the previous five-year plan.
 
China is now the world leader in graphene publications and patents. Its carbon nanotube manufacturing is likely to account for 50% of the world. According to Lux's observation, although China's process and manufacturing technology for graphene is still lagging behind, China is catching up quickly.
 
China's carbon nanotube publications are among the world's leading companies, and its number of patents ranks second in the world. According to Lux's prediction, China will soon catch up with the manufacture of carbon nanotube materials, mainly with rapid growth rates.
 
From 2013 to 2015, Ma told EETimes that only Cnano and Timesnano announced expansion plans of 500 tons and 100 tons respectively, resulting in China increasing its global production capacity from 30% to 50%. Because CNano and timesnano have cost advantages, a well-established customer network, and ongoing financial support, they should be considered as potential business partners in China in the future.
