Thus, the various investments by the government in the field of nanomaterials in the Asia Pacific and Europe are anticipated to drive the multi-walled carbon nanotubes market in these regions during the forecast period.

Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Market Drivers

Growing Demand For MWCNT From Automobile & Aerospace Sectors

The implementation of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) is increasing in the automotive industry owing to their superior mechanical properties and lightweight. These properties encouraged the automotive sector to use multi-walled carbon nanotubes for designing and manufacturing of car interiors and exteriors. The nanomaterials are widely used in automobiles to reduce the aluminum engine weight, for better grip and low rolling resistance and in Li-ion batteries to shorten the recharge time, increase the tensile strength, and to reduce the weight of automobiles. These advantages are increasing the adoption of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in the automotive industry, and hence fueling the market growth. The multi-walled carbon nanotubes are also used in aerospace applications such as equipment enclosures, aircraft interiors, coatings, cockpit, crew gear, space durable mirrors, nozzles, and solar array substrates, as lightweight and high performance are of prime importance in aerospace structures.

Emerging Applications of MWCNT in Healthcare & Life science Sectors

Multi-walled carbon nanotubes are being widely used in medicine and pharmaceuticals for the sensitive detection of key biological molecules, more precise and safer imaging of diseased tissues, and novel forms of therapeutics because of their mechanical, optical, electrical, and chemical behaviors. Several multi-walled carbon nanotube-based therapeutic and diagnostic agents have been developed for the treatment of cancer, diabetes, pain, asthma, allergy, and infections, because of which the nanomaterials market is growing. Researchers at North Carolina State University are developing a method to deliver cardiac stem cells to damaged heart tissue for increasing the number of stem cells delivered to injured tissue. Also, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute developed antibodies attached to carbon nanotubes in chips to detect cancer cells in the bloodstream. The researchers claim that this could provide early detection of cancer cells in the bloodstream, which will act as a driver for the multi-walled carbon nanotubes market.

Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Market Challenges

Health Hazards Related To MWCNT

Multi-walled carbon nanotubes are widely used nowadays due to ease of synthesizing when compared with other types of CNTs due to their properties, such as high strength, diameter length ratio, and more. However, the simple addition of CNTs in the rubber mixture does not produce the desired results. Nanotubes coagulation results in poor dispersion in a high viscosity of elastomer because of the strong van der Waals attraction. To overcome this problem the modification in the surface of the nanotubes is done. Using carbon black as fillers have improved technological, mechanical, and gas barrier properties. However, carbon black particles on inhaling can irritate the lungs and cause coughing while irritating the eyes, nose, and throat. When people are exposed to high levels of carbon black over many years, the particles may lodge deep in their lungs, which may lead to bronchitis and eventually to a chronic condition called "obstructive pulmonary disease. Also, longer fibers of Multi-walled carbon nanotubes such as carbon nanotubes can make their way far into the lungs, which in the worst case can cause mesothelioma - cancer in the tissue that lines the lung. All these health risks may restrain the multi-walled carbon nanotube market.

The Emergence of COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the entire world has gone under lockdown, and universities are closed. However, numerous nanotechnology research labs have kept open throughout to redirect their efforts towards the development of a vaccine and/or nano formulations of therapeutics for the treatment of COVID-19. Expertise in nucleic acid and drug delivery, cancer nano vaccines, immune engineering, nanotechnology-based sensors, and platform technologies positions nanotechnology in a unique place to tackle some of the key issues in pre-clinical and clinical COVID-19 research. Therefore, it is anticipated that the multi-walled carbon nanotubes market is not much affected due to the outbreak.
