|Global Markets and Technologies for Nanofibers|
|Published: January 8, 2019||Content info: 178 Pages||
The global market for nanofibers increased from $43.2 million in 2006 to an estimated $48.0 million by the end of 2007. It should reach $176 million in 2012 and grow to $825 million by 2017, compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of 30% and 36%, respectively.
The mechanical/chemical sector is projected to account for 73.5% of total revenues in 2007. Other key sectors are energy and electronics.
Nanofibers are generating great interest in certain industry segments, where alternative materials are characterized by limited performance or much higher unit prices (a good example is the utilization of carbon nanofibers as an alternative to carbon nanotubes for electron emitters in flat panel displays).
This report provides an updated review of nanofiber technology, including materials and production processes, and identifies current and emerging applications for this technology.
BCC Research delineates the current market status for nanofiber-based products, defines trends, and presents growth forecasts for the next five years. The market is analyzed based on the following segments: material, application, and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest developments, are discussed.
More specifically, the market analysis conducted by BCC Research for this report is divided into five sections.
In the first section, an introduction to the topic and a historical review of nanofibers are provided, including an outline of recent events. In this section, current and emerging nanofiber applications are also identified and grouped in segments (consumer, defense and security, electronics and optoelectronics, energy, life science, mechanical/chemical/environmental, sensors and instrumentation, thermal and acoustic insulation, transportation, and others).
The second section provides a technological review of nanofibers. This section offers a revised and detailed description of traditional and emerging nanofiber materials as well as typical fabrication methods and recent process updates. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2016, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.
The third section entails a global market analysis for nanofiber products. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (material, application, and region), with actual data referring to the years 2016 and 2017 and estimates for 2018. Dollar figures refer to sales of nanofiber products at the manufacturing level. Revenues only account for the nanofiber component of the device, not the entire device, as applicable.
The analysis of current revenues is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends, based on industry growth, technological trends, and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for nanofiber-based products within each segment, together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for the period 2018 through 2023. Projected and forecast revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.
In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading nanofiber suppliers, together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these firms and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.
The fifth and final section includes an analysis of recently issued U.S. patents, with a summary of patents related to nanofiber materials, fabrication methods, and applications. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application, and material type.
