REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY
Nanofibers are traditionally defined as nanostructures with diameters of less than 1,000 nanometers and length-to-width ratios typically greater than 50. The global nanotechnology market, encompassing nanostructured materials, nanotools and nanodevices, was estimated to be worth approximately $23 billion in 2015, with continued steady growth expected. Nanofibers are currently estimated to represent more than 2% of this market, but their share is expected to grow in the future as the use of nanofibers expands at a faster rate than other segments of the nanotechnology sector.
The high surface area offered by nanofibers, combined with other physical, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties, makes them suitable for various commercial applications, including electronics, energy, mechanical/chemical/ environmental, consumer and life sciences.
At the time of BCC Research’s last report (May 2013), the global market for nanofibers was valued at only $151.7 million, but it was experiencing rapid double-digit growth.Since then, nanofiber fabrication technologies have continued to evolve. New applications have been developed, and others that have completed the development stage are now entering commercialization.
The principal reason for doing this study is to present a current assessment of the nanofiber industry from both a technological and market point of view, as well as to outline future trends and key developments.
There is also a need to evaluate the current status and future trends of this market from a global standpoint. As the use of nanofiber-based products expands and new fields of application emerge, information concerning the suppliers and developers of these products and their regional distribution becomes more valuable.
An equally important reason for undertaking this study is to provide technical insights into nanofiber manufacturing by:
-Providing a review of materials, their specific applications and production methods.
-Identifying current technical trends.
-Providing an overview of the main global R&D activities related to nanofibers, resulting in the issuance of patents.
-Illustrating the latest technological developments.
-This information can assist companies in identifying opportunities for process and productivity improvements, as well as new product development, resulting in a positive impact on future market growth.
This study will be of primary interest to all organizations that:
-Manufacture, sell and distribute nanofibers and nanofiber-based products.
-Supply raw materials for nanofiber production.
-Manufacture process equipment utilized by nanofiber producers.
-Fabricate and supply filtration media, catalysts, advanced displays, batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells.
-Provide technical and/or marketing services in filtration, energy management, biomedical products, high-performance textiles and thermal insulation.
-Have plans to enter the nanofiber industry as manufacturers, suppliers or end users.
Overall, this study applies to industry sectors, including consumer goods, defense and security, electronics, energy, life science, mechanical/ chemical/environmental, sensors/instrumentation, thermal and acoustic insulation, and transportation.
The study is mainly directed toward executives, directors, operations managers, sales and marketing managers, and strategic planners working within these industries. Universities and research facilities may also find this study to be a good source of technical information regarding nanofiber technology and applications that can be used as a baseline for new or expanded R&D activities. Librarians of technical information and research centers can also use this report to provide critical data to product managers, market analysts, researchers and other professionals needing detailed and updated insights into the nanofiber industry.
