Carbon nanotubes are the fastest growing segment in nanomaterial
technology market across the globe. The global carbon nanotubes market is
divided into submarkets for carbon nanotube types and its applications. The
product types include single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) and multi-walled
carbon nanotube (MWCNT). The application areas include electronics and
semiconductors, chemicals and polymers, batteries and capacitors, energy and
utilities, medical applications, composites, aerospace and defense, and
others. The others include water applications, cosmetics, FMCG products, and
so on.

The market in APAC is driving the CNT sales and is expected to hold 49.1%
of the global market share in 2016. The APAC market is expected to have a
high CAGR of 12.9% due to increasing supply capacity by major players and
high demand from the industries such as chemicals and polymers, batteries,
and capacitors.

The global production capacity for multi-walled carbon nanotubes is
projected to reach 13,995.7 tons by 2016; with a CAGR of 30.6% from 2011 to
2016; due to major players planning to increase the production capacity of
multi-walled carbon nanotubes considering the future demand for MWCNT, which
is expected to grow in double digits due to increasing demand driven by
lithium-ion battery, automotive components, electronics and semiconductors,
and other end user markets.

The U.S. leads the CNT market in North America with 87% market share
while Japan leads the Asia Pacific market with 36.4% market share; followed
by China with 24.2 %. Within Europe, Germany draws the largest demand with
43.2% market share. Electronics and semiconductors remain the leading demand
generating application with 20.80% market share. Some of the raw materials
covered in this report are graphite, ethylene, and others.
