Since the beginning of this year, people around the world have felt the pressure of rising prices. Not only the rise in oil prices but also different industries have seen soaring prices. According to the latest data, from August 2021 to the present, the inflation rate in the United States has risen for 6 consecutive months, and this data has soared from the previous 5.3% to 7.9% today. Inflation in the United States, the global Many countries have been affected.
According to experts' forecasts, the inflation rate in the United States may exceed 10% this year, which will face the danger of collapse, which has a great impact on global inflation, including graphene powder.
The advent of sodium batteries is expected to alleviate the current constraints of lithium resource shortage on the rapid development of the new energy industry, and will further stimulate the application of transition metal disulfide such as tungsten disulfide WS2 in the field of power energy storage.
Lithium-ion batteries are a key raw material for developing energy devices and realizing the vision of "carbon neutral". However, at present, the capital investment in the raw material end is difficult to cover the rapidly growing energy demand, and there is an obvious structural imbalance in the investment in the lithium electric industry chain, which leads to the rising cost of lithium raw materials.
As a result, sodium batteries began to enter the field of vision. Sodium is abundant in nature, and as an energy material, it also has a large capacity and high-rate performance, which can effectively make up for the shortcomings of lithium-ion batteries in the current energy storage field. Although the price of sodium battery will be higher than lithium battery due to the small scale of the supply chain at present, with the maturity of technology, the cost-effective sodium battery will be an effective supplement to lithium battery, and it is even expected to serve the development of new energy field together with a lithium battery.
Tungsten disulfide, as a potential battery material, is also expected to benefit from more market replenishment.
Tungsten disulfide is a layered material with remarkable surface effect, electron fluidity, thermochemical stability, and high density of electron states. It has been widely used in lithium and sodium storage. For example, nanocomposites used as conductive additives or graphene composite as anode material of batteries can show higher specific capacity and discharge efficiency, making up for the deficiency of single component WS2 or C as anode material.
Graphene is a new anode material most studied by energy storage researchers in recent years. It has many advantages, such as excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, a large specific surface area, and so on. However, as an energy storage material, it still compensates for its own defects, such as the material is prone to structural collapse under a long cycle, which will lead to a serious decline in battery capacity. Therefore, graphene and WS2 nanomaterials with high thermochemical stability can effectively compensate for the shortcomings of graphene.
In general, tungsten disulfide is an ideal choice for battery materials.

Inflationary pressures on Canadians continue to rise. The consumer-price index rose 6.7% in March from a year earlier, the biggest increase since January 1991, according to the latest figures from Statistics Canada.
On a month-on-month basis, Canada's CPI rose 1.4 percent in March, also accelerating from February's 1.0 percent rise.
Prices in the eight major sectors covered by the statistics continued to rise. The uptrend comes against the backdrop of continued price pressures in the Canadian housing market, widespread supply chain constraints, and geopolitical conflicts, according to CBC. A variety of factors have affected energy, commodity, and agricultural markets. Meanwhile, Canada's employment picture continued to improve in March, with the unemployment rate falling to a record low and the average hourly earnings of employees rising.
Excluding gasoline, Canada's CPI rose 5.5 percent year on year in March. It is also the highest since comparable data began in 1999.
The widespread supply chain constraints and geopolitical conflicts are expected to continue to affect the prices of the graphene powder.
