ALBANY, New York, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Array of remarkable mechanical, electrical, and optical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) attract a groundswell of interest of end-use industries in these nanotubes. Electronics and semiconductor industries are increasingly harnessing the nanotubes for range of electro-optical applications in numerous end-use industries. A study by Transparency Market Research projects the global single-walled carbon nanotubes market to expand at a whopping CAGR of ~52% during 2019 – 2027. Its valuation was pegged at US$ 130 million in 2018.
Sizable revenue streams are likely to hinge on companies utilizing these properties in biomedical and automotive applications. A large growth dynamic comes from the use of these carbon nanotubes in EMI-shielding material.
"A major proportion of demands in the single-walled carbon nanotubes market are in electronics, semiconductors, energy, and biomedical industries," observe the analysts. "It is imperative that leading companies should aim for cost-effective, bulk manufacturing of nanotubes to commercialize their products faster, and retain competitive edge over their peers," opine the authors.
Key Findings of Single-walled Carbon Nanotube Market Study
Among the various production technologies, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is by far the most popular. The method has been extensively used in producing high-performance composites using SWCNT. The segment is expected to retain its dominant share throughout the assessment period.
On the other hand, the high pressure carbon monoxide method (HiPCo) segment is expected to rise at most attractive growth rate through 2027.
Of all the regions, Asia Pacific held nearly half of share of the global market in 2018. Consistently high demand for SWCNTs in the region has been key to its prominence.
Europe accounted for ~40% of the share in the global market by volume in 2018.

Key Impediments for Single-walled Carbon Nanotube Market Players
In numerous polymer matrices single-walled carbon nanotubes show uniform dispersion. This forms a veritable challenge for fabricators, who find it difficult to retain the structural integrity of these nanotubes. Further, composite manufactures in the end-use industries struggle to achieve proper single-walled carbon nanotube-matrix interfacial bonding. All these impediments have lowered the penetration of the market to the key regions. On the other hand, unceasing research and development activities are helping fabricators circumvent several of these problems.
Rising application of advanced carbon-based nano-composite materials has spurred the popularity of single-walled carbon nanotubes in Asia Pacific. The demand for these nanomaterials has also proliferated on the back of the constantly advancing science behind composites. Revenues in the regional market are further fueled by the growing prospects of SWCNT in Japan, China, India, Malaysia, and Taiwan, notably in electrical and electronics, automotive, and energy applications.
