GPC will brand the inks as "GP Graphene Ink” and initially target Japan’s electronic printed inks market before spreading further across Asia.
This market is forecast to be worth more than US$12bn by 2022, from US$3bn in 2015, across a whole range of products such as printers, screens and lighting as demand for machine-to-machine/Internet of Things interaction increases.
Within this, Asia-Pacific is forecast to account for the largest share of the total global printed electronics market.
Ray Gibbs, Haydale’s chief executive, said: "GPC has the right profile and customer focus to demonstrate that sales and marketing of our formulated graphene-based inks, specifically into Japan and other Asian countries, will be well received.
“We have been working for many months on ink formulations with GPC's graphene-Like-graphite materials in order to meet customers' specifications.
“Japan is a big market and GPC's presence is highly regarded."
