Economic perspectives and goals
For graphene, last year's publications forecast a wide range of possible applications, assuming that graphene production can be economically and process-reliably implemented. Looking at the so-called hype cycle for new, innovative materials, graphene is currently in a state of disillusionment between 2004 and 2012, after great euphoria. After passing through the bottom, 2018 will see a significant increase in attention and thus global sales in the graphene market.

Hype cycle from Gartner
The network is designed to help companies position themselves in the market on time and secure important market share. Efficient bundling of competencies and synergy effects through cooperation in the network are an essential requirement for this.
