The global market for nanomaterials will reach $4.2 billion by 2011 and remain concentrated in the US Western Europe and Japan. Products making the greatest initial commercial impact are nanoscale versions of conventional materials such as silica, titanium dioxide, alumina, iron oxide, and zinc oxide.
This study analyzes the $1 billion global nanomaterials industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 201,| 2016 and 2025 by material (e.g., metal oxides, metals, nanotubes, clays, minerals, polymers and chemicals, dendrimers, nanoballs), by market (e.g., electronics, health care, construction, energy generation and storage), world regional market and for 15 national markets.
The study also considers market environment factors, discusses research and development activities and profiles more than 100 major industry participants including Arkema, BASF,LANXESS, Carbon Nanotechnologies, and Nanocor.
