Carbon Nanotubes Global Market Forecast: CNT Applications, Markets, Companies and Research

Carbon nanotubes market

Once the most promising of all nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) face stiff competition in conductive applications from graphene and other 2D materials and in mechanically enhanced composites from nanocellulose. However, after considerable research efforts, real CNT products are hitting the market, and large-scale industrial production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) has been initiated, promising new market opportunities in transparent conductive films, transistors, sensors and memory devices. Li-ion battery additives and supercapacitors are also potential high growth market opportunities. 

Carbon nanotubes products

First generation multi-walled nanotubes (MWNT) products include composite additives for automotive parts, sporting goods, boat hulls and water filter membranes. Super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays, films and yarns have found begun to find application in consumer electronics, batteries, sensors, heaters, filters, the chemical industry, and biomedical applications. Recent applications include CNT TEM grids and CNT touch panels. Limited-volume applications are as scanning probe tips, in drug delivery research, thermal management and biosensors (mainly for R& D purposes). Single-walled nanotube (SWNT) products are expected to hit the market over the next 1-2 years. In May 2014, OCSiAl and Zeon Corporation both announced plans to significantly increase SWNT production, and applications such as SWNT super-capacitors and composites are anticipated. Advances in CNT synthesis, purification and chemical modification are enabling integration of CNTs in thin-film electronics and large-area coatings.
