The Scope of Graphene Oxide in Advanced Life

Graphene oxide (GO) is a single-atomic layered material. The component is an oxidized form of graphene. It is cheap and readily available. The chemical is dispersible in water and other solvents. Graphene is a thin material that appears to be two-dimensional. As it is a poor conductor, the chemical is frequently sold in scattered powder or as a coating on substrates. Further, there is increasing demand for the product in several end-use industries such as electronics, aerospace, automotive & transportation, aerospace, construction, defense, textile, and healthcare. Growing demand for nanotechnology in the electronic product industry is estimated to expand the industry growth forward.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted a variety of businesses around the world. Strict government regulations and harsh restrictions such as lockdowns and social distancing measures declined the product demand. The market witnessed a slowdown in import and export activities. Lack of labor or workers halted production activities. The shutdown of several industries globally hindered the product demand among consumers. As per Business Research Insights, the global market of graphene oxide is anticipated to hit USD 76 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 36.5% during the forecast period. The growing demand from the automotive sector is likely to aid the industry’s expansion.
