Drivers & Restraints-

Extensive Usage in Aerospace Industry to Augment Growth

In the aerospace industry, CNT is used the most as the aircraft manufacturers are focusing on developing stronger, long-lasting, and tougher components. They are doing so because of the high risk that is associated with flying. The industry is nowadays aiming to lower the weight of aircraft components for reducing the operational cost, as well as fuel consumption. Nano materials are mostly used to revamp the properties of aircraft components for improving the overall performance. Apart from that, several professionals consisting of engineers and manufacturers are creating new methods for introducing aerospace grade composites




Rising Usage of CNT to Favor Growth of the Electrical & Electronics Segment


Based on application, the market is grouped into energy, electrical and electronics, plastics and composites, and others. Amongst these, the electrical and electronics segment held 10.6% CNT market share in 2018. This growth is attributable to the increasing usage of CNT to make various electronic devices. It is especially used to make field-effect transistors and diodes. Also, CNT possesses many features, such as good conductivity and excellent optoelectronic characteristics. It would also contribute to the growth of this segment.


Regional Analysis-


Rising R&D Activities on Polymers to Drive Growth in North America

Geographically, the market is grouped into Asia Pacific, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, and Europe. Out of these, North America generated USD 1,278.7 million in 2018 in terms of carbon nanotubes market revenue.
