Black Phosphorus Market Report: Analyzing Size and Share Trends

Black phosphorus is a phosphorus allotrope with a layered structure similar to graphite. It is a semiconductor material, which means it has both metal and nonmetal properties. It has a distinct bandgap that can be tuned by varying its thickness, as well as high carrier mobility. Black phosphorus has piqued the scientific community’s interest due to its unique properties. It has the potential to be used in optoelectronics, thermoelectrics, and energy storage. It could also be used in photodetectors, transistors, memory devices, and solar cells. The global Black Phosphorus Marketwill grow to USD 83 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 43.1% from USD 13 million in 2022.

This growth is primarily triggered by the growing demand for black phosphorus in energy storage and sensors application. Refineries emit several gases, such as sulfur dioxide, VOCs, nitrogen oxide, chlorine, and benzene. Black phosphorus sensors give increased conduction on nitrogen dioxide exposure and great sensitivity in detecting NO2 at levels as low as five parts per billion. Excess inhaling of VOCs by humans may impact their ability to breathe. Some of these gases can also cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, nausea, eye problems, headache, congenital disabilities, leukemia, and cancer. Thus, it is required to monitor and detect these harmful gases, which consequently is increasing the demand for gas sensors in refineries. All these factors are driving the demand for gas sensors, which in turn, is driving the demand for black phosphorus.
