Many industries including electronics, automotive, aerospace, telecommunications and healthcare are exploring the use of high impact nanomaterials such as nanocellulose, carbon nanotubes and graphene. Other 2-D nanomaterials such as silicene, graphyne, graphdiyne, grapahane and molybdenum disulfide are also under intense study. CNTs and graphene are the strongest, lightest and most conductive fibers known to man, with a performance-per-weight greater than any other material.

Due to their excellent optoelectrical performance, processability, stability, and high conductivity, CNT-based transparent electrode films have been put forward as a candidate to replace indium tin oxide (ITO) currently used in touchscreens and displays. Graphene has remarkable electronic properties, with an extraordinarily high charge carrier mobility and conductivity. It is an excellent conductor, and transports electrons tens of times faster than silicon. These properties make it an ideal candidate for next generation electronic applications. Near-medium term electronics applications for graphene are in radio-frequency identification tags, low-resolution displays and backlights, sensors, electrical contacts, analog signal processing and electronics packaging.

This is a golden era for carbon research with academics pursuing the perfect analysis tools for these nanomaterials whilst simultaneously evaluating the growing variants of each sub family and how they must be processed to ensure their potential properties are married to the systems they could enhance. Once the most promising of all nanomaterials, 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, numerous multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs)-enhanced products are commercially available. Super-aligned CNT arrays, films and yarns have found applications in consumer electronics, batteries, polymer composites, aerospace, sensors, heaters, filters and biomedicine. 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. SWNTs are regarded as one of the most promising candidates to utilized as building blocks in next generation electronics. Other 2D nanomaterials are also coming to the fore.

Once the most promising of all nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) face stiff competition in conductive applications from graphene and other 2D materials and in composites from nanocellulose. However, after considerable research efforts, real CNT products are coming to the market. Transparent conductors (TCs), battery additives and transistors represent the most promising markets for CNTs. CNTs are widely viewed as viable candidates as alternatives to indium tin oxide (ITO) in TCs and SWNTs are a leading candidate to replace silicon in transistors.

The market for zinc oxide nanoparticles (Nano-ZnO) continues to grow, mainly driven by the demand for UVA/B filters in sunscreens and sun protection cosmetics. There has been an increasing demand over the past 18 months from brand owners for non-chemical UVA/B filters and this trend is expected to continue as regulatory hurdles are surmounted.
