Carbon Nanotubes Market by Type (SWCNTS & MWCNTS), Application (Electronics, Chemicals, Energy, Medical, Composites, Aerospace & more) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dc3l4k/carbon_nanotubes) has announced the addition of the "Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) Market by Type (SWCNTS & MWCNTS), Application (Electronics & Semiconductors, Chemical & Polymers, Batteries & Capacitors, Energy, Medical, Composites, & Aerospace & Defense) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018" report to their offering.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are minuscule allotropes of carbon with sizes to the scale of nanometers. The physical, electrical, and thermal properties of carbon nanotubes make them a special material for a number of applications. CNTs have very high tensile strength, excellent electrical conductivity, and the ability to bear high working temperatures. Despite challenges such as the high cost of production and integration issues, the CNT application market has made great breakthroughs.

CNT enabled nanotechnology has made a huge impact on a wide range of applications such as electronics, medicine, aerospace, defense, automotives, energy and construction. With producers stepping up their production capacities, the prices of CNTs are set to decrease inducing a spiraling effect on application areas thereby pushing up demand.

The global market for CNTs has grown during the past few years, driven by superior properties and adaptability of CNTs in major end-user industry applications. The CNTs market is expected to register a healthy growth on account of growth in the key end-user industries. The Asia-Pacific market is a major consumer of CNTs with high usage in electronics & semiconductors and advanced materials industries. In 2012, the production and revenue generation of CNTs was witnessed to be high in the Asia-Pacific region, followed by the North America region.

This study aims to estimate the global market of CNTs for 2013 and to forecast the expected demand of the same in 2018. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global CNTs market. It provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market. The market is further segmented and forecasted for major regions of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW).
