The global market for CNT primary grades was $158.6 million in 2014. This market is projected to reach $167.9 million in 2015 and $670.6 million in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33.4% from 2014 to 2019.
Following the Introduction and Executive Summary chapters, this updated report is then divided into nine major chapters as described below.
Chapter Three, Technology Overview, defines CNTs, outlines their history, describes the production methodology, identifies the unique properties of various forms of CNTs and emphasizes the major application challenges.
Chapter Four, Patent Analysis, provides an extensive search/analysis of U.S. issued and pending patents (along with Canadian, European, and World Patent & Trademark Office databases where there is no USPTO presence) and a collation of the main technical/application sectors and identifies the most active organizations-U.S. and foreign-driving CNT technology.
Chapter Five, Industry Structure and Competitive Analysis, identifies current producers, progress in continuous production scale-up, and market segmentation, and provides industry profiles of the major players.
Chapter Six, Markets by Application, represents the body of the report, assessing the latest progress and technical readiness in the major application sectors of composites, electronics, energy storage, membranes, sensors and other applications.
Chapter Seven, Global Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of all notable CNT producers.
Chapter Eight, North American Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of U.S. and Canadian CNT producers.
Chapter Nine, European Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of European CNT producers.
Chapter Ten, Asian Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of Asian CNT producers.
Chapter Eleven, Market Pull: Prognosis for Global CNT Applications, identifies the most promising applications realizable based on the leading proponents, technical readiness and market interest.
John Oliver, the author of this report, is the founder of Innov8 Solutions, which provides advanced materials consultation services to industrial clients. He has more than 30 years of industrial R&D experience in surface and colloid science spanning a wide range of materials technology. Working primarily as a senior scientist at Xerox Research Centre of Canada, he developed an invaluable understanding in advanced materials used in digital printing technologies such as xerography and inkjet printing (IJP). In the past 12 years, through his involvements with the Alberta Research Council and several Alberta universities, his interests have evolved into the realm of nanomaterials and microsystems device integration. He has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from McGill University and a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry from Surrey University, U.K. His publications include more than 40 technical peer-reviewed technical articles and 20 patents. Between 2005 and 2009, he was the editor of BCC Research's monthly Nanoparticle News and has authored eight previous BCC Research nanomaterial technical reports.
