Black phosphorus is a unique form of phosphorus that exhibits layered crystalline structure. It is also known as phosphorene or BP. Unlike white or red phosphorus, which are more common allotropes of phosphorus, black phosphorus is a relatively new and less stable form. It was first isolated and characterized in 2014. Black phosphorus has attracted significant attention due to its remarkable electronic and optical properties. It is a highly anisotropic material, meaning its properties differ depending on the direction in which they are measured. This anisotropy gives black phosphorus several advantageous properties, making it suitable for various applications. The black phosphorus market is estimated to grow to USD 83 million by 2027 from USD 13 million in 2022, at a CAGR of 43.1% between 2022 and 2027. The black phosphorus market is mainly driven by the increasing demand for gas sensors in critical industries and the implementation of various health and safety regulations globally.
