Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb (hexagons or chicken-wire) crystal lattice. Graphene is the world's strongest and most conductive material, and no wonder that researchers and professionals looked into graphene's potential across many applications, including sensors, batteries, conductors, displays, electronics, energy generation, medicine and more.

The commercialization of graphene is just in its infancy, but already dozens of new companies have been established to develop graphene based materials, applications, graphene production processes and other related activities.

There are many companies directly involved with graphene. Most of these companies are either private early stage companies or large companies in which graphene is just one business segment, but some pure-play graphene companies are public. Below we will list some potential graphene stocks for investors that wish to take part in the graphene revolution. For a more in-depth analysis of the possibility of investing in graphene, and a complete public companies listing, see our Graphene Investment Guide.

Pure-play graphene companies

In the past few years several graphene producers and graphene application developers started trading in stock exchanges around the world - mostly in Australia, Canada and the UK. Here we'll list some of those companies:

Versarien LogoVersarien (AIM:VRS) is an advanced materials group leveraging proprietary technology to create innovative engineering solutions for its clients in a diverse range of industries - focusing on graphene materials.

Haydale logoHaydale (AIM:HAYD) is a UK-based supplier of functionalized graphene and related technologies. Haydale is mostly involved with graphene composite solutions and graphene-based inks. In 2016 Haydale acquired ACMC, a US-based silicon carbide whisker manufacturer.

Applied Graphene Materials (AIM: AGM) was established in 2010 as a spin-off from Durham UniversApplied Graphene Materials logoity to develop a new graphene synthesis method and produce graphene materials. AGM's technology is a unique patented scalable 'bottom-up' CVD approach to produce graphene. AGM is a public company that lists in the UK's AIM stock exchange. AGM mainly targets graphene composites, coatings, lubricants, thermal management solutions and energy storage devices.

G6 Materials logo imageG6 Materials (TSX: GGG), formerly known as Graphene 3D Lab, focuses on development of high-performance graphene-enhanced materials.

Other graphene investment options

Several large and public companies (such as Samsung, Intel, Nokia, IBM and Sony) are involved in graphene research. These companies may be on the forefront of graphene research - especially in high-end fields such as electronics and photonics - but graphene, even if successful, will probably represent a small portion of their business.

Another option is to invest in graphene production equipment. Aixtron SE, for example, is a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry who offers CVD graphene production systems. Aixtron trades in the NASDAQ (ticker:AIXG). US-based CVD Equipment Corporation also offers graphene R&D and production equipment. CVD Equipment trades in the NASDAQ (ticker: CVV).

The latest graphene stocks investing and financials news:

G6 Materials quarterly revenues up 28% from last year

Graphene developer G6 Materials reported its financial results for Q1 2022 (ended February 2022). The company's revenues were $337,921, up 28% from last year, and the total loss increased 26% to $404,152.

As of February 28, 2022, total assets were $6.9 million. The company says it saw continued strong demand for its innovative formulations, along with impressive customer response to the relaunch of Graphene Supermarket. The company will soon launch its Breathe+ Pro medical grade air purifier product, and together with several major customer deals in the pipeline, it anticipates a very strong quarter.

Many graphene companies see their share price plummet, is it a buying opportunity?

The past couple of years were very good for public graphene companies, many of which saw their share prices spike. This was partly due to a general positive market trend and also due to maturity in the graphene industry and actual commercialization of graphene-enhanced materials and devices.

Share performance of public graphenec ompanies (2022 01-04)

Since the beginning of 2022, however, the share price of most of the companies we track dropped - in some cases by over 30%. The chart above shows some of the most prominent companies.

AGM reports its latest half-year financial results

Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) announced its interim results for the six months that ended on January 2022. Revenues were £46,000 (up from £42,000 in the previous half year period), while net loss was £1.9 million (up from £1.8 million).

Despite the low revenues and large loss, AGM's management says that there's a steady growth in potential pipeline projects - as these increased to 192 from 135 last year. The company also updates that it has been progressing with its developments for the battery and hydrogen fuel and storage industries.

Advanced Material Development selected for the Faraday Battery Challenge Investment

Advanced Material Development recently announced its selection as one of eleven SME’s for the 2022 Faraday Investment Program. The program will invest up to £330 million in research and innovation projects and facilities to promote the battery business in the UK.

Through its expertise in 2D nanomaterials, AMD has been able to produce a variety of robust printed structures for electrodes, strain sensing and thermal interfaces that show improved conductivity and mechanical flexibility whilst dramatically improving sustainability.

Haydale secures Innovate UK grant to develop smart composite tooling

Haydale has announced that it has been awarded funding of £186,403 by Innovate UK, the UK's innovation agency, to develop smart composite tooling for the aerospace industry using functionalized nanomaterials.

The ESENSE project (Out-of-autoclave self-heated tooling enabling temperature homogeneity and embedded graphene sensors) aims to enhance out-of-autoclave (OOA) manufacturing processes with monitoring and through-life sensing capabilities using Haydale's patented HDPlas functionalization process to develop high temperature inks and pressure sensors. The project is due to start in April 2022 and is expected to run for 24 months.
