Aerographite Market

Aerographite is a novel carbon-based cellular material comprising a three-dimensional interconnected graphite structure. It is produced in a two-step process. At first, ZnO is fabricated in a flame spray process forming a solid 3-D scaffold as a template, followed by a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method in which the ZnO is covered by thin layers of graphite, while the ZnO template disappears. Aerographite is six times lighter as compared to air and has a density of five thousand times less than that of water.

Furthermore, it has excellent properties that have made it attractive for numerous fields of research as well as commercial applications. Moreover, its other properties include ductility and improved performance against increased tensile loads and compression. It can undergo extreme compression and aerographite intriguingly exhibits improved conductivity and strength under these stresses. Once the compressive load is removed, it can return to its original size without damage. Moreover, it has the ability to bear loads thousands of times heavier than itself.

Rising demand for aerographite from the electric vehicles sector is anticipated to propel the aerographite market growth during the forecast period.

In recent years, the most appropriate energy storage device for powering electric vehicles (EVs) is lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) due to their superior attributes such as high energy density, high power density, long life cycle, lack of memory effect, and high energy efficiency. Owing to these characteristics, they are lighter and smaller compared to any other traditional rechargeable batteries such as nickel-cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd), nickel-metal hydride batteries (Ni–MH), and lead-acid batteries.

Modern electric vehicles, still, face technological barriers, such as reliability, high cost, & safety, and performance barriers such as charging rate, a lifetime, & range, consequently limiting their widespread adoption. Moreover, there has been surge in the use of the Li-ion batteries in a wide range of automotive passenger car applications.

Owing to the unique material characteristics of aerographite, it fits onto the electrodes of Li-ion batteries. In that case, only a minimal amount of battery electrolyte is required, thereby leading to a crucial decline in the battery’s weight.

Furthermore, as per the International Trade Administration, the U.S. has one of the biggest automotive markets globally. In 2020, U.S. light vehicle sales were 14.5 million units. The U.S. is the world’s second-largest market for vehicle sales and production. Moreover, in 2020, the U.S. exported 1.4 million new light vehicles and 108,754 medium & heavy trucks (worth a combined value of more than $52 billion) to over 200 markets worldwide, with additional exports of automotive parts valued at $66.7 billion.

In addition, according to an International Energy Agency, electric vehicles (EVs) sales in 2021 were the highest in China at 3.3 million (tripling 2020 EV sales), followed by Europe with 2.3 million EVs sold in 2021 (up from 1.4 million in 2020). In the U.S., EV sales doubled their market share to 4.5% in 2021.

However, the availability of substitutes such as graphene is likely to restrain market growth. Aerographite is an organically engineered material with strong covalent bonds between carbon atoms. It comes under an identical group as a couple of other upcoming organic construction materials such as graphene and aero graphene.

Graphene is ideal for countless applications such as transport, medicine, electronics, energy, and defense. It is stronger than steel, yet incredibly lightweight & flexible; and electrically & thermally conductive. Besides, it is the world's first 2D material and is one million times thinner than the diameter of a single human hair.

Furthermore, graphene-based materials find applications in different construction materials, including cement, thermal, & acoustic insulators, anti-corrosion coatings, asphalt, and firefighting materials. Moreover, adding it to construction materials improves mechanical strength, durability, hardness, and flexibility. It could be used to enhance energy efficiency and lower the environmental impact of buildings.

Graphene has some superior strength properties, particularly due to Young's Modulus and tensile strength. This high strength has led to graphene being utilized in multiple composite materials. In addition to its high strength, graphene’s other properties enable it to be used in a variety of applications in the construction sector. On the contrary, the surge in demand for water treatment is anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the aerographite industry.

The aerographite market is segmented into application and region. On the basis of application, the market is divided into aviation & satellite, automotive, building & construction, water treatment, pollution absorbent, and others. Region-wise, the aerographite market share is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Major players operating in the global aerographite market include Aero Industries, Miami Advanced Material Technology Co., LTD, Pingdingshan Kaiyuan Special Graphite Co., Ltd., Xinghe County Muzi Carbon Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Huarong Technology Co., Ltd. These players adopted several growth strategies such as product launch, business expansion, merger & acquisition, and others to strengthen their position in the market.

Aerographite Market by Region

Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2021. Aerographite is gaining popularity for use in batteries of cars & bikes due to its light application.
