However, currently the cost of deploying the technology is very high. This discourages many industry players to use the technology, which is the key restraint for the market. The unit price as well as overall usage cost has to be reduced to increase the adoption rate of nanocomposites. Another challenge for technology providers is to bring the technology out of the research labs into the market. Suppliers have often found that success in laboratory cannot be replicated in large a scale production cases. Some of the key players profiled in the report are Arkema SA, BASF, Cabot Corporation, Elementis Specialties Inc., Inframat Corporation, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (DuPont), Foster Corporation, Nanocor Incorporated, Powdermet Inc., and Showa Denko K.K.
