Nanomaterials are being applied across a raft of industries and technologies due to their outstanding magnetic, optical, catalytic and electronic properties, which depend greatly on their size, structure, and shape. Nanomaterials Production 2002-2016 is the only market study ever conducted on how much nanomaterials are produced.

More Details

We conservatively estimate the 2010 worldwide production of nanomaterials to be 21,713 tons, a tenfold increase from 2002. Optimistic forecasts for 2010 are 31,574 tons. The conservative market value is $2.64 billion. Optimistic market estimates are also covered in the report.

The production volume in 2016 is conservatively estimated to more than double to 44, 267 tons, driven by demand from applications in electronics, energy, medicine, chemicals, coatings and catalysts.

The market is forecasted from 2002 through to 2016. End user markets are also outlined. The report covers metal oxide nanopowders; carbon nanotubes; fullerenes and POSS; graphene; nanoclays; nanofibers; nanosilver; and quantum dots.
