Cientifica Publishes Comprehensive Analysis of the Impact of Nanotubes on Composite Materials
The new 146-page report draws on Cientifica's unparalleled insight into the carbon nanotubes industry, and highlights the opportunities, the applications and the technical barriers still to be overcome.
Key findings include:
-- The market for nanotubes and nanofibers will increase from EUR 144 million in 2005 to over EUR 3 billion by 2010 -- a compound annual growth rate of well over 60%.
-- Prices will decrease by between 10 and 100 times in the next 5 years depending on the types of nanotubes.
-Nanofibers and nanotubes will overcome price barriers for many composites applications and seriously compete with current technologies.
-- Markets for carbon fibers, kevlar, stainless steel fibers and nanoparticles will all be impacted.
The report presents detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis of the current and emerging applications of carbon nanotubes in composite materials, in depth analysis of global CNT prices and trends, production volumes and capacity over the next five years.
The report answers key questions such as:
-- What composite materials will make use of carbon nanotubes, and when?
-- What market share will carbon nanotubes gain from carbon from fiber, when, and for which applications?
-- When will carbon nanotubes deliver the much needed price drops to compete with carbon black?
-- There is no shortage of CNT suppliers, so why are nanotubes so expensive, and when will the price come down?
Other key data includes
-- Composites market analysis and prospects, 2005-2010;
-- Future successes and failures of CNTs in the composites sector;
-- CNT price, capacity and actual production volumes 2005-2010;
-- Extensive listing of global SWNT, MWNT and nanofiber suppliers;
