Market Analysis - Carbon Congress 2018
Graphene, Carbon Nanotubes, and Nanostructures
(Theme: Launching Carbon into the World of Nanotechnology)
Nanomaterials (Graphene, carbon nanotube & nanostructures) is an international, interdisciplinary journal which publishes articles covering both basic and applied research on Nanomaterials and related materials. Nanomaterials research takes a materials science-based approach to nanotechnology, leveraging advances in materials metrology and synthesis which have been developed in support of microfabrication research. Materials with structure at the nanoscale often have unique optical, electronic, or mechanical properties. Papers published cover all fundamental and technological aspects of synthesis, characterization, properties, devices and generic applications of these materials.
Graphene, the two-dimensional crystal of carbon, has many extraordinary properties and characteristics which are either unique or surpass those of other materials. The fundamental properties of Graphene are making it an attractive material for a wide variety of applications. The uptake of Graphene will be driven by confidence in its performance and progress in its production with properties appropriate for specific application. A semiconductor is a substance, usually a solid chemical element or compound that can conduct electricity under some conditions but not others, making it a good medium for the control of electrical current.
Importance & Scope:
Graphene is the thinnest strongest material in nature. This element is important because it may function as conductors, semiconductors, as well as insulators. Fullerene, Graphene, and graphite are a few of the most important allotropes of carbon that exist in Nano scale dimensions, and all three have unique physical, material, and chemical properties. Electricity flows very quickly through the simple honeycomb sheet. Most conductors we encounter are metals, yet Graphene is based on carbon, a nonmetal. Semiconductor devices can be mainly used to display a range of useful properties such as passing current more easily in one direction than the other, showing variable resistance, and sensitivity to light or heat.Graphene-2017 covers the area of Graphene and Graphene oxide, Graphene like 2-D materials, production and forms of Graphene, Semiconductor materials, Semiconductor technologies, Emerging areas of semiconductors, Mechanics and behavior of Graphene and Semiconductors, Industrial Applications of Graphene and Semiconductor.
The global carbon nanotubes market size is expected to reach 15.10 kilotons by 2022. In terms of value, the market size was USD 3.43 Billion in 2016, and is likely to reach USD 8.70 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 17.09% during 2017 to 2022. The demand for carbon nanotubes has been increasing rapidly in applications such as field emission displays, integrated circuits, hydrogen storage, lithium batteries, solar PV cells, fuel cells, drug delivery, and so on. Increasing commercialization; ramping up of installed capacities; and technological advancements to bring down prices, improve quality, and develop more advanced products are the trends in the carbon nanotubes market. Currently, R&D is being undertaken for capturing new applications, including food materials, glass ceramic, structural steel, agriculture, and hair color. The constant increase in feasibility of potential applications for carbon nanotubes will keep the demand ticking upwards during the forecast period.
The carbon nanotubes market is segmented based on application into electronics & semiconductor, advanced materials, chemical & polymers, batteries & capacitors, energy, aerospace & defense, medical, and others. The electronics & semiconductor segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022. The CNTs offer unique electrical properties for building electronic devices such as field effect transistors and diodes. These are also used to form a p–n junction diode by polymer coating and chemical doping. Furthermore, CNT based diodes can potentially disperse heat out of the computer chips due to their unique thermal transmission properties.
The Asia Pacific carbon nanotubes market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the rising demand for carbon nanotubes from economies of the Asia Pacific region, including India, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Singapore, among others. The robust demand in Asia Pacific is the major driving factor for the global carbon nanotubes market. China will lead the demand for carbon nanotubes due to its increased industrial production. It is also among the largest consumers of carbon nanotubes at the global level.
Most of the industrial carbon and graphite materials are synthesized form carbonaceous precursors. But also natural graphite is an important raw material. The majority of natural graphite is still consumed for refractory applications. However its use as anode material in lithium-ion batteries is fundamental for electro-mobility.
Many physical properties of graphite are not yet sufficiently used. Better use and new, huge fields of application can be generated with Nano forms of the element carbon. This comprises fullerenes, single- and multiwall nanotubes, Graphene and other Nano forms. Most promising fields of application are in electronics, sensor technology, medical and also mechanical applications.
