Carbon nanotubes are minuscule allotropes of carbon having sizes to
the scale of nanometers. Their physical, electrical, and thermal
properties make them special material for a number of applications. CNTs
have very high tensile strength, excellent electrical conductivity, and
the ability to bear high working temperatures.
notwithstanding some challenges like high cost of production and
integration issues, the CNT application markets have made great
breakthroughs and enabled nanotechnology to become one of the most
sought-after technologies to have made a huge impact on a wide range of
applications such as electronics, medicine, aerospace, defense,
automotives, energy, construction, etc. With some of the big producers
stepping up their production capacities, the prices of CNTs are bound to
come down and this will induce a spiral effect on the application areas;
thereby pushing up the demand for CNTs.
With extensive research
regarding CNT being carried out by almost all the leading companies in
the above mentioned application areas, the challenges for integration of
CNT will eventually loosen out and in a nutshell, it would be said that
carbon nanotubes are the hottest nanomaterial in the time to come.
All the major types of carbon nanotubes such as single-walled and
multi-walled have been covered in depth in this report. Their production
and pricing trends and forecast have been included. As this report
focuses mainly on the major application areas of carbon nanotubes, we
have included all the current possible application areas such as
electronics and semiconductors, chemicals and polymers, batteries and
capacitors, fuel cells, medical applications, advanced materials,
defense, and others.
The analyst has further divided these major
applications areas into sub-segments that include field emission
displays, sensors, hydrogen storage, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cell,
solar PV cells, drug delivery, sporting goods, airframe and components,
etc. and analyzed these markets with their trends and forecasts. Each of
the macro and micro markets include detailed analysis of the market
trends and forecast, affecting factors, and their competitive landscape.
The analyst has carried out an in-depth geographic analysis for
each of the markets and their sub-segments covering the major regional
markets; viz. North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and ROW.
