Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been attracted huge attention over the past two decades, based on their extraordinary physical and chemical properties that are a result of their intrinsic nano-sized one-dimensional nature. 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.

A key objective of this report is to discuss how the latest technological trends – for example to light- and electroactive shape memory polymers (SMPs), or to novel shape memory alloys (SMAs) will expand addressable markets and create new opportunities for both major firms and start-ups. Included in this analysis: how particular shape memory materials are likely to perform in the marketplace and how SMAs and SMPs are most likely to find their respective niches and price points. This report also analyzes how end-user markets for shape memory materials are changing.

Smart composites leverage the commercial success of the composite technology model and apply it specifically to smart materials.  In regular composites two materials are combined to create a new material with functionality that is significantly different to the original materials. Typically, a smart composite is a smart material embedded in polymer, textiles, metal or concrete. In a few cases, smart composites are fabricated from two “dumb” materials that become smart only when they are combined. Our analysis suggests that these smart composites will have a growing role in a number of important applications and industry sectors. Many smart composites are inherently multifunctional and the latest smart composite technology even promises the ability to embed programmability into materials, enabling robotics-like behavior without embedded electronics.
