This BCC Research report provides an up-to-date understanding of the developing market for superconducting applications, materials, and other enabling technologies. It also analyzes the key drivers and constraints that will shape the market for these superconducting applications as the basis for projecting demand over the next five years.

Use this report to:
- Learn about the trends in superconductivity technology and the global market for superconductivity applications during the period from 2013 through 2019.
- Identify superconducting applications with the greatest commercial potential in the near term to midterm (2013 to 2019).
- Gain insight into the key developments in superconducting technology that are expected to influence the market in the near future.

Highlights
- The global market for superconductivity applications was worth nearly $1.8 billion in 2013 and is expected to approach about $2.0 billion in 2014 and nearly $4.2 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.4% over the next five years.
- The global market for superconducting magnets was worth more than $1.7 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $1.9 billion in 2014 and nearly $2.6 billion by 2019, a CAGR of 6.1% for the five year period, 2014-2019.
- Superconducting electrical equipment had a market value of $29 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $38.7 million in 2014 and $1.5 million by 2019, a CAGR of 108.0%.

INTRODUCTION

STUDY BACKGROUND
Superconductivity is a unique and powerful tool in scientific research that has led to important strides in healthcare such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Other
superconducting technologies on the cusp of commercialization will increase the efficiency with which electricity is produced and used, which will indirectly benefit the
environment. In the future, superconducting technologies may be used to predict earthquakes, map the magnetic fields produced by the brain, and produce ultrahigh-performance computers. These are only a few examples of the wide range of superconductivity technologies and applications analyzed in this report. This report is an updated version of an earlier BCC Research report published in 2012.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The overall goal of this report is to provide an up-to-date understanding of the developing market for superconducting applications, materials, and other enabling
technologies. Specific objectives include:
- Identifying superconducting applications with the greatest commercial potential in the near term to midterm (2013 to 2019).
- Analyzing the key drivers and constraints that will shape the market for these superconducting applications as the basis for projecting demand over the next five years.
- Estimating current and future consumption of superconducting materials and other key enabling technologies.
- Identifying the companies that are best positioned to meet this demand because of their proprietary technologies, strategic alliances, or other advantages.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This report is intended for marketing executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, and other readers with a need to know where the superconductivity field is
headed over the next five to 10 years. Other readers who should find the report particularly valuable include government officials associated with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and other national and state-level programs charged with advancing the development of the nanotechnology industry.

Although the report addresses specific superconductivity technologies and materials, it is generally nontechnical in nature and coverage. Thus, it is less concerned with theory and jargon than with identifying the developments that work, assessing the amount of technologies the market is likely to purchase, and projecting the price of such
technologies. Although the report is not written specifically for scientists and technologists, many of these professionals will be interested in its findings concerning the market for their work, including the availability of government and corporate research funding for different technologies and applications.

SCOPE AND FORMAT
The report addresses trends in superconductivity technology and the global market for superconductivity applications during the period from 2013 through 2019, including:
- Science, research, and technology development.
- Healthcare.
- Electric utilities.
- Computing.
- Transportation.
- Communications.
- Military/defense.
- Other applications.

The study format includes the following major elements:
- Executive summary.
- Overview (i.e., definitions, brief history, superconductivity characteristics, market summary).
- Developments in superconducting technology that are expected to influence the market through 2019.
- Detailed market estimates and projections for each technology, application, and end use during the period from 2013 to 2019.
- General assessment of expected technological and market trends in the longer term.
- Description of key players in the emerging superconductivity industry.

INFORMATION SOURCES AND METHODOLOGY
The findings and conclusions presented in this report are based on information gathered from primary sources within the industry, including vendors and users of
superconductivity products. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources such as trade publications, trade
association literature, company literature, and online databases to produce the market projections contained in this report. The base year for analysis and projection is 2013. With 2013 as a baseline, market projections were developed for 2014 to 2019. These projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts and BCC Research’s understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective.

The analytical methodologies used to generate the market estimates are described in detail in the section titled “Detailed Market Projections.” The documentation is
intended to enable the reader to evaluate the projections, and, if desired, substitute alternative assumptions. All dollar projections presented in this report are in 2013 constant dollars unless otherwise noted.
