Emerging Trends in Nanomaterials Market
Type Segment Review:
The carbon based nanomaterials segment includes fullerenes, graphene, and carbon nanotubes. It has become important due to its unique combinations of chemical & physical properties, which involve thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, high mechanical strength, and optical properties. The unique physio-chemical properties of these materials has led to their utilization in various industrial applications, such as high-strength materials and electronics.
Metal & non-metal oxides have a major role in many areas of chemistry, physics, and materials science. They are useful in various technological applications such as fabrication
of microelectronic circuits, sensors, piezoelectric devices, fuel cells, coatings for the passivation of surfaces against corrosion, and as catalysts.
Dendrimers are tree-like molecules with well-defined cavities. They are defined by three components, namely, a central core, an interior dendritic structure (the branches), and an exterior surface with functional groups. Different combinations of these components generate differently shaped and sized products, with shielded interior cores that are meant for applications in both biological and materials sciences.
Application Segment Review:
In the aerospace industry, aircraft manufacturers are striving towards making aerospace parts stronger, tougher, and long-lasting. Recent research has revealed that nano-enabled products in aircrafts can increase fatigue life by 200 to 300%. Components fabricated with carbon nanotubes reinforced polymers can deliver improved mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. Similarly, polymer-silicate nanocomposites can be used in fuel storage tanks. Increased commercial application of nanomaterials in the aerospace industry will provide significant opportunity to the material suppliers and part fabricators.
Global Aircraft Deliveries: 2012-2016
Nanomaterials are meant for developing novel characteristics and have the potential to improve quality of life. However, these materials may also pose risks to the environment and raise health & safety concerns.
