Global Revenues for Nanofiber-Enabled Products to Reach USD 852.3 Million Mark by 2017, Forecasts Future Markets14 Nov 2012 • by Natalie Aster
Global revenues for nanofiber-enabled products were estimated at US$382.1 million in 2011, growing to around $852.3 million by 2017. Main markets for polymer nanofibers are in air and water filtration, composites and textiles. Polymeric nanofibers account for the main bulk of the current revenues for nanofibers, finding application across a number of sectors. Alumina nanofibers are mainly used in filtration applications. Carbon nanofibers are beginning to find application across a raft of industries including electronics (heat management, EMI shielding, conductors), composites (polymers, resins, glass, ceramics, plastics), energy (batteries, catalysts and fuel cells) and medicine and life sciences (drug delivery, tissue engineering, implants) and carbon nanofibers represent the fastest growing market for nanofibers, especially in Li-Ion battery applications. Cellulose nanofibers are also beginning to make an impact in composites and electronics applications.
Leading players in the market include Ahlstrom, Dupont, Donaldson, Hollingsworth & Vose, Johns Manville, Kuraray, Mitsubishi Rayon, Teijin and Toray. Innovative up and coming companies involved in both the production and application of nanofibers include Elmarco, Fiberio Technology Corporation, Finetex and Nanoval. Leading application developers include NEC and Asahi Kasei.
