FOREWORD

Advanced materials are deeply integrated in and partially defined, by the applications they serve. By necessity, their story changes over time and alongside their applications fluctuating fortunes. But trends and common threads do emerge and can be useful to understand.

Rare earth element scarcity has somewhat receded as concrete steps have been taken to assure less dependence on any single country source—Mountain Pass, Calif., Weld and Dubbo in Australia, as examples.

The need to hit 2015 targets for Moore’s law has pushed opto-electronics into new areas. In turn, the manufacturing know-how to economically manipulate these hybrid materials has galvanized new thinking and new methodologies, which will eventually spread to related applications.

This Advanced Material Research Review provides a sampling of the type of quantitative market information, analysis and guidance that has been aiding business decision making since BCC Research was founded in 1971. It includes highlights of reports published in 2012 on the following advanced materials markets:

Graphene: Technologies, Applications and Markets.
New Electronic Materials and Device Technologies: Global Markets.
Specialty Fibers: Technologies and Global Markets.
Rare Earths: Worldwide Markets, Applications, Technologies.
Technical and Advanced Structural Ceramics.
Metamaterials: Technologies and Global Markets.
Superconductors: Technologies and Global Markets.
