'Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) Market by Type (SWCNTS & MWCNTS), Application (Electronics & Semiconductors, Chemical & Polymers, Batteries & Capacitors, Energy, Medical, Composites, & Aerospace & Defense) & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018'

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are minuscule allotropes of carbon with sizes to the scale of nanometers. The physical, electrical, and thermal properties of carbon nanotubes make them a special material for a number of applications. CNTs have very high tensile strength, excellent electrical conductivity, and the ability to bear high working temperatures. Despite challenges such as the high cost of production and integration issues, the CNT application market has made great breakthroughs.

CNT enabled nanotechnology has made a huge impact on a wide range of applications such as electronics, medicine, aerospace, defense, automotives, energy and construction. With producers stepping up their production capacities, the prices of CNTs are set to decrease inducing a spiraling effect on application areas thereby pushing up demand.

The global market for CNTs has grown during the past few years, driven READ MORE >
