Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION

MOTIVATION
Among the numerous categories in the evolving field of newly synthesized nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are perhaps among the most dynamic and undergoing the most rapid pace of development. The past 15 years have witnessed relentless growth in the research, development, and technological understanding of these remarkable materials. Universities, small businesses, and start-ups, as well as large corporations, have continued to probe and exploit numerous commercial possibilities for these fascinating materials. As a result, the list of product applications is expanding considerably and is projected to do so well into the future. The most tangible evidence for growth and interest is reflected in the emergence of new CNT producers now capable of offering CNTs in commercial-scale quantities—in kilograms, tonnes, and even hundreds of tonnes, depending on the specific grade—at more affordable and increasingly competitive unit pricing. In addition, after several years of incubation, there is a new breed of more mature university spin-offs, or nanotechnology companies, targeting specific application sectors.

Additional evidence of growth is the increasing presence of larger, more established corporations that recognize the future market opportunities offered by CNTs. Finally, the past five years have seen phenomenal growth in CNT-related patent activity. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) analysis during the latest three-year review period (2012 to 2014) revealed that cumulative output exceeded 6,800 issued and 10,000 filed patents, respectively. This represents substantial growth compared with the previous analysis period (2009–2011) and further substantiates the ongoing academic and industrial interest in CNT applications. In view of the technical momentum—representing a multibillion-dollar technology investment—and the enormous business potential, this report provides a timely update on CNTs—their level of technical maturity, where they are starting to penetrate the market place, and when and where the broadening market unravels.

OBJECTIVES AND PURPOSE OF THIS REPORT
The primary objectives of this report are threefold:
- Assess the current state-of-the-art in CNT production and technical applications understanding.
- Identify the current players seeking to exploit the unique properties of CNTs.
- Evaluate actual or impending markets in terms of the technical readiness of CNTs and the projected market revenues.

SCOPE OF REPORT
Following the Introduction and Executive Summary chapters, this updated report is then divided into nine major chapters as described below.

Chapter Three, Technology Overview, defines CNTs, outlines their history, describes the production methodology, identifies the unique properties of various forms of CNTs and emphasizes the major application challenges.

Chapter Four, Patent Analysis, provides an extensive search/analysis of U.S. issued and pending patents (along with Canadian, European, and World Patent & Trademark Office databases where there is no USPTO presence) and a collation of the main technical/application sectors and identifies the most active organizations—U.S. and foreign—driving CNT technology.

Chapter Five, Industry Structure and Competitive Analysis, identifies current producers, progress in continuous production scale-up, and market segmentation, and provides
industry profiles of the major players.

Chapter Six, Markets by Application, represents the body of the report, assessing the latest progress and technical readiness in the major application sectors of composites,
electronics, energy storage, membranes, sensors and other applications.

Chapter Seven, Global Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of all notable CNT producers.

Chapter Eight, North American Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of U.S. and Canadian CNT producers.

Chapter Nine, European Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of European CNT producers.

Chapter Ten, Asian Market Analysis, estimates five-year potential revenues of Asian CNT producers.

Chapter Eleven, Market Pull: Prognosis for Global CNT Applications, identifies the most promising applications realizable based on the leading proponents, technical readiness and market interest.

CONTRIBUTION OF THE STUDY AND TARGET AUDIENCE
This report represents a major update to BCC Research’s report, Carbon Nanotubes:
Technologies and Commercial Prospects (NAN024E) published in July 2012. The most significant revisions in this new edition include the following:
- An extensive patent analysis of the U.S. patent database.
- An in-depth assessment of the unfolding commercial markets.
- Analysis of progress in the synthesis and commercial scale-up of CNTs.
- Extensive compilation of the producers and end users dictating market development.
- A five-year projected market analysis of the emerging CNT industry.

This comprehensive technical and business assessment on the current status of the CNT industry should prove informative to nanomaterials manufacturers, financial
institutions and investors seeking insights into near-term commercialization opportunities, technologists confronted with nanomaterial device integration issues,
and companies interested in exploiting revolutionary nanomaterials for advanced composites, biomedical, electronic, energy storage, membranes/separation, sensing,
security and other emerging applications.

METHODOLOGY AND SOURCES OF INFORMATION
This report is derived primarily from the enormous amount of patent and technical literature relating to CNTs disclosed in the public domain. In addition, complementary
information has been drawn from business community sources, such as company investment news, company profiles, and press releases. Finally, and most importantly,
BCC Research’s project analyst has conducted personal interviews with 12 leading CNT producers shaping the future growth of this industry.
