Nanofibers have been prepared from a range of materials, such as synthetic polymers, natural polymers, carbon-based nanomaterials, semiconducting nanomaterials, and composite nanomaterials. Nanofibers are steadily gaining popularity in drug delivery systems, medical implants, water and air filtration, cell-cultured meat and protective clothing. The BMW electric M-series automobile incorporates nanofiber air filtration. Demand has increased due to growing needs for materials offering high functionality, such as absorbency and grip, and excellent comfort including soft texture and low skin irritation. This has been further boosted by the explosion in demand for medical-grade face coverings and air and microfiltration media, high-efficiency fuel filtration, advanced filtration, life sciences/pharmaceutical medias, acoustics and performance apparel over the past 18 months. These trends will continue over the next decade.

Nanofibers have wide-ranging morphologies, and are produced using a variety of materials such as:

  • Natural polymers
  • Synthetic polymers
  • Carbon nanomaterials. 
  • Semiconducting materials
  • Composite materials
  • Chitin
