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 type into multi-walled and single-walled carbon nanotubes. The multi-walled carbon nanotubes segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022. The MWCNTs are used in applications such as electrical conductivity, conductive transparent electrodes, conductive heating films, conductive nano inks, nano devices, displays, chemical sensor, super batteries, supercapacitors, energy storages, solar industries, thermal interface material, and many more. The MWNTs are highly conductive when properly integrated into a composite structure. Only the outer walls of MWNTs are conductive, not the inner ones.

The carbon nanotubes market is segmented based on method into chemical vapor deposition, catalytic chemical vapor deposition, and high pressure carbon monoxide reaction, among others. The chemical vapor deposition segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2017 to 2022. Chemical vapor deposition is the largest and fastest-growing method segment globally. Chemical vapor deposition of hydrocarbons over a metal catalyst is a classical method that has been used by various manufacturers to produce carbon nanotubes. It is also the cheaper method and it is expected that the price will further go down globally.

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.

Carbon Nanotubes Market

The growth of CNT market is affected by the cost structure of CNTs, processing difficulties, and availability of substitutes such as Silicon Carbide Nanotubes (SiCNTs). The methods which are used to produce CNT such as arc-discharge and laser ablation methods are expensive, hazardous for nature, and uneconomical for production of carbon nanotubes on a large scale.

Key players operating in the carbon nanotubes market include Arkema S.A. (France), Arry International Group Ltd. (China), Carbon Solutions Inc. (US), Cheap Tubes Inc. (US), CNano Technology Ltd. (US), CNT Company Ltd. (Korea), Continental Carbon Company (US), Hanwha Chemical Co. Ltd. (Korea), Hyperion Catalysis international Inc. (US), Klean Carbon Inc. (Canada), Kumho Petrochemical Company Ltd. (South Korea), Nano-C Inc. (US), Nanocyl S.A. (Belgium), NanoIntegris Inc. (US), NanoLab, Inc. (US), Nanoshell LLC (US), Nanothinx S.A. (Greece), Showa Denko K.K. (Japan), SouthWest Nanotechnologies Inc. (US), Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. (UK), and Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), among others.
