Carbon nanotubes are minuscule allotropes of carbon having sizes to the scale of nanometers. The physical, electrical, and thermal properties make these a special material for number of applications. CNTs have very high tensile strength, excellent electrical conductivity, and the ability to bear high working temperatures. However, not withstanding some challenges like high cost of production and integration issues, the CNTS application markets have made great breakthroughs.

Carbon nanotubes enabled nanotechnology to become one of the most sought-after technologies and have made a huge impact on a wide range of applications such as electronics, medicine, aerospace, defense, automotives, energy, construction, etc. With some of the big producers stepping up their production capacities, the prices of CNTs are bound to come down and this will induce a spiraling effect on the application areas; thereby pushing up the demand for CNTs. With extensive research regarding CNTs being carried out by almost all the leading companies in the above mentioned application areas, the challenges of integration of CNTs will eventually loosen out and in a nutshell, it would be said that CNTs are the hottest nanomaterials in the time to come.

The global market for Carbon nanotubes has grown during the past few years, driven by superior properties and adaptability of CNTs in major end-user industry applications. The CNTs market is expected to register a healthy growth on account of growth in the key end-user industries.
