Research and Markets: The Global Market for Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene and Other 2-D Materials to 2025: Applications, Companies, Markets and Research

June 10, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “The Global Market for Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene and Other 2-D Materials to 2025: Applications, companies, markets and research “ report to their offering.

The global market for carbon nanotubes and graphene & other two-dimensional nanomaterials will greatly impact sectors such as photonics and electronics.

CNTs and graphene are the strongest, lightest and most conductive fibres known to man, with a performance-per-weight greater than any other material. In direct competition in a number of markets, they are complementary in others.

Applications in the carbon nanotubes and graphene global market

Graphene is likely to outshine carbon nanotubes in composites, but single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) are seen as the more viable candidate for replacing silicon in transistors. As transparent conductors and battery additives, they are prized for their excellent electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties, and SWNTs and graphene will strongly compete for supremacy in these sectors in the coming years. Other 2-D nanomaterials are also coming to the fore. Single-walled Nanotubes (SWNT) are currently too expensive for widespread application but are expected to make a significant impact in electronics applications by 2020, and price has decreased as production capabilities have improved. SWNTs are also promising candidates in antibacterial and medical applications. The main regional demand for CNTs is in Asia-Pacific. This is the largest market for lithium-ion batteries and transparent conductive films by a considerable margin, followed by Europe.
