Nanocomposites

US nanocomposites demand will grow 21 percent annually through 2011 as nanomaterial and composite prices decline. Higher-priced resins, such as engineering plastics used in applications where cost is not a critical factor, will lead gains. Packaging and motor vehicles will remain two key early markets.

This study analyzes the $860 million US nanocomposites industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011, 2016 and 2025 by nanocomposite product (e.g., thermoplastic, thermoset); market (e.g., packaging, motor vehicles, construction, electrical and electronics, consumer); and nanomaterial (e.g., carbon black, clays, minerals, nanotubes).

The study also considers market environment factors, identifies industry participants and profiles 54 of them, including resin manufacturers, independent compounders, suppliers of nanoscale materials, and firms that formulate composites for their own use.
