A new report by the Freedonia Group analyses the US Nanomaterials industry with forecasts up to 2020.
The report states that rapid gains will be driven by niche applications such as data storage media, improved medical diagnostics, transparent sunscreens, stain-resistant pants, wear-resistant flooring and fuel-saving automotive parts. Health care and electronics uses will dominate later on.
This study analyzes the commercializing US nanomaterials industry. It presents historical demand data for 2000 and 2003 and forecasts to 2008, 2013 and 2020 by material (e.g., metal oxides, clays, metals, polymers and chemicals, nanotubes, dendrimers, nanoballs, quantum dots); by function (e.g., abrasives; coatings, layers and thin films; sunscreens; biocides; vitamins, minerals and pharmaceutical actives; fillers and reinforcements; catalysts; structural materials); and by market.
The study also examines the market environment, evaluates company market share and profiles 135 industry participants including Altair Nanotechnologies, Carbon Nanotechnologies, Nanophase Technologies, BASF, Bayer, and DuPont.
