When the transistor was invented it was not considered a disruptive technology since it could not scale in frequency due to the imputies in the then silicon ingots.  It took a few years for a German company to find a way to clean silicon using "Zone Refining" methods.   

I see the same thing happening here with graphene.  I'm going to take a second look at Samsung as an investment.

They can grow a graphene monolayer on Ge but then this monolayer has to be transferred. I was hoping processing could follow immediately.
