Opportunities: Growth in emerging applications


In industries like sporting goods and bulletproof jackets, there is a growing demand for composite materials. The strength and mechanical qualities of the completed goods are improved by the introduction of CNTs in an epoxy resin. These products also became stronger, stiffer, and lighter after high-quality finishing. CNTs are used to control or enhance chemical and mechanical conductivity in polymers and are added to anti-static packaging. CNTs is most popular in structural reinforcement. These are added to other materials to improve flexibility, increase their strength, and reduce weight.


Energy & storage, by end-use industry segment hold the largest growing segment in overall carbon nanotube (CNT) market during forecast period.


Energy & storage end-use industry holds the largest share in terms of volume in overall carbon nanotube (CNT) market. The highest volume of CNTs are consumed for energy & storage. Vehicles that need lightweight, high-energy density solutions are causing a sharp rise in the demand for lithium (li)-ion batteries. Cell phones, notebook computers, and hybrid cars all use these batteries because they have the best energy density per weight.

During the forecast period, the lithium-ion battery market is anticipated to be driven by the rising use of plug-in hybrid electrical vehicles (PHEV) and portable electronic gadgets. As a result, the market for carbon nanotubes in the energy & storage sector is anticipated to grow. Several automakers have begun concentrating on EVs as several nations have taken measures to reduce CO2 emissions and maintain a greener environment.

The Asia Pacific region is likely to account for the largest share of the global carbon nanotube market during the forecasted period.


Asia Pacific is the largest market and is likely to continue in the foreseeable future. The three main end-use sectors for CNTs are automotive, building & construction, and electrical & electronics. Increased vehicle sales in the region are anticipated to have a positive effect on the market during the forecast period due to the expansion of the road and transport networks in the region and government measures to expand the industrial and infrastructure. A result of its expanded industrial production during the last five years, China now leads the world in the need for CNTs. The industry is also driven by the relocation of manufacturing operations for the chemical, automotive, and aerospace sectors from established markets to developing nations.
