The global nanowire market to grow at a CAGR of 30.91% during the period 2017-2021.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global nanowire market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the calendar year 2016 to be the base year and provides data for the trailing 12 months. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
There are different types of nanowires available in the global market, which include metallic nanowires (e.g., Ni, Pt, and Au), superconducting nanowires [e.g., yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO], semiconducting nanowires (e.g., Si, InP, and GaN), and insulating nanowires (e.g., SiO2 and TiO2).
One trend in market is increasing applications of nanowires in environment and healthcare applications. A nanowire mat that is similar to paper is being tested as a new tool for the cleaning of oil and other organic pollutants. The scientists at MIT, US, claim to have created a membrane that can absorb oil around 20 times its weight and can be recycled many times for the future use. In addition to the absorption, the oil itself can also be recovered.
According to the report, one driver in market is silver nanowires displaying potential as a replacement for ITO. Touchscreen displays mainly depend on electrodes made of ITO, a material that is brittle and expensive to source and process.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is high production cost of nanowires. Semiconductor nanowires are important materials in the development of cheaper and more efficient solar cells, as well as for batteries with higher storage capacity. In addition, they are important building blocks in nanoelectronics.
