Graphene-based capacitors: The largest product segment. 67.2% 5-year CAGR, from $26 million in 2015 to $340 million in 2020.

Structured materials: Second-largest segment. 39.1% 5-yr CAGR, from $17.5 million in 2015 to $91 million in 2020.

Graphene in displays: Shooting up from a negligible value in 2015, this segment will reach $43.8 million in 2020.

Graphene-based photovoltaics (PV): 36.1% 5-yr CAGR, from $7.5 million in 2015 to $35 million in 2020.

Thermal management graphene products: 8.4% CAGR, from $15 million in 2015 to $22.5 million in 2020.

Remaining graphene-using products will make up a $1 million industry in 2015, and should hit $142.8 million in 2020 (169.7% 5-yr CAGR).

The commercial market for graphene-based products was essentially nonexistent 2009-2010, but BCC expects commercially significant graphene sales to crop up before 2015.

The BCC report surveys emerging graphene technologies and applications, identifies significant commercial sales opportunities in the next 5-10 years, and shares quantitative estimates of potential sales.
