2D Material-Based Semiconductors Expected To Find High Growth Potential In Electronics, Optoelectronics and Sensors

Since discovery of graphene in early 2000s, it has been the most widely talked about 2D material in world due to its applicability across industries.However, lack of natural bandgap in graphene has prompted many researchers to explore other type of 2D materials. This brings into focus materials such as 2D chalcogenide, 2D oxide nanosheets, phosphorene and hybrid 2D materials.

All of these materials have a natural bandgap that can support its adoption in the semiconductor sector. These 2D material based semiconductors is expected to be of main focus in electronics, optoelectronics and sensors industries. This RS discusses the emerging 2D materials beyond graphene. The materials that are discusses in this research includes 2D chalcogenide, 2D oxide nanosheets, phosphorene and hybrid 2D materials.

The research services highlights the properties and characteristics of these materials, elaborates on the factors that impact the adoption of these across industries and maps the future technology and product roadmap across the three industries mentioned above. An exhaustive patent analysis, an insight on the emerging opportunities of the materials, a scenario modeling analysis that highlights the adoption of 2D materials in the 2020 has also been covered in this research service.
