Over the past two years, scale up of multi-wall carbon nanotube production has led to a dramatic price decrease (Arkema, Bayer Material Sciences, Showa Denko…), down to $150/kg for semi-industrial applications. The run for industrial CNT production plants has started in order to achieve a sustainable business with the commercialization of these high-tech materials with a mid-term price target of $45/kg.

The prices for nanoclays have also dropped slightly, but the question of price versus performance ratio is not yet solved. At this point, some commercial nanoclay applications have been abandoned for cost reasons. Silver-based nano-additives have made a successful market entry (50% of nanoproducts) and are now widespread in white goods, clothing and food applications. Further market penetration is forecast in the coming years, though the lack of stan-dardization, regulation and the health & safety aspects might impact this evolution.

The nanotech industry is moving from research to production with over 500 consumer nano-products already available. Though nanotechnology has long been seen as tomorrow’s technology, developers of nanoproducts are focused READ MORE >
