Carbon Nanotubes: Segmentation Analysis

Published Date : May 14, 2019

Carbon Nanotubes Industry is segmented into Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTS) and Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTS). On the basis of method the market is segmented into Miscellaneous Process, Physical Process, Chemical Vapor Deposition, High Pressure Carbon Monoxide, Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition and Chemical Process. By application the market is segmented into Energy, Electronics & Semiconductors, Batteries & Capacitors, Chemical & Polymers, Aerospace & Defense, Medical Application and Advanced Materials Application.

Polymers was the biggest application segment in 2014
CNT was significantly used as a part of polymers, representing more than 60 percent of share of the market in 2014. Application development of engineered polymers in automotive and construction sector is foreseen to boost the CNT requirement.Gaining prevalence of composites by virtue of its lightweight property is foreseen to expand CNT market demand in polymers. CNT displays great conductivity and phenomenal optoelectronic properties, which is foreseen to advance its request in electrical & electronics applications. Rising significance towards generation of energy through exchange sources, for example, sunlight based and wind vitality is foreseen to advance the part of wind turbines and solar cells.

In 2014 Multi-walled carbon nanotubes was the biggest product section
Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) were the biggest product to be consumed in 2014. The high molecular unpredictability of graphene in MWCNT increases rigidity, which has cleared its way for use in polymers, energy and electronics applications. MWCNT is progressively sustained in engineered polymers, for example, polycarbonate (PC),polyetherimide (PEI), and polyetheretherketone (PEEK) by virtue of dispersing electricity produced via friction and expanding repellency towards airborne contamination.
