    Segments Analysis

    By Type

    Based on the type, the market is segmented into multi-walled carbon nanotubes and single-walled carbon nanotubes. The multi-walled carbon nanotube segment is estimated to register higher growth in the coming five years. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing use of MWCNTs in applications such as nanodevices, electrical conductivity, conductive transparent electrodes, super batteries, conductive heating films, chemical sensors, conductive nano inks, supercapacitors, energy storages, solar industries, and thermal interface material.

    By Method Type

    Based on the method type, the market is segmented as chemical vapor deposition (CVD), catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD), high-pressure carbon monoxide reaction (HiPCO), and others. The CVD segment is estimated to register the highest growth during the forecast period. It is also projected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment in the coming five years. The growth of this segment is attributed to the fact that the CVD of hydrocarbons over metal catalytic agents is a traditional technique that has been employed by various manufacturers to manufacture carbon nanotubes. It is also an economical method, and it is anticipated that the price will further narrow down globally in the times to come.  

    By Application Type

    On the basis of application type, the market is segmented as advanced materials, electronics & semiconductors, chemicals & polymers, batteries & capacitors, energy, aerospace & defense, medical, and others. The electronics & semiconductor segment is estimated to depict the highest growth during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is owing to the specific properties of carbon nanotubes which deliver exceptional electrical properties for manufacturing electronic devices such as diodes and field effect transistors. 

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, the Asia-Pacific region is estimated to depict the highest growth during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the increasing demand for carbon nanotubes from countries such as China, South Korea, India, Vietnam, Singapore, and Taiwan. The strong demand in the region is the prime factor for the growth of the global carbon nanotubes market. China is expected to dominate the demand for carbon nanotubes owing to its rising industrial production. North America and Europe are also expected to offer substantial growth opportunities during the forecast period.
