Polymer Nanocomposites Market by Type (Carbon Nanotubes, Nanoclays, Metal Oxide, Ceramics), Application (Construction, Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Packaging) – Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

Date: 2016-10

“Polymer nanocomposites are materials consisting different types of nanofillers uniformly dispersed in the polymer matrices. These nanofillers may be carbon nanotubes, nanoclays, metal-oxide, ceramics, and graphene among others. Polymer nanocomposites are gaining acceptance worldwide due to their enhanced mechanical, chemical, and physical properties rendered in them by dispersion of fillers at the nanoscale.

In 2015, the world polymer nanocomposites market was valued at $5,276 million and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% during 2016-2022. The growing demand for polymer nanocomposites from the automotive industry is the major driver for the polymer nanocomposites market. Polymer nanocomposite-enabled parts are gradually replacing the metal parts that are used in vehicles as they offer various advantages over them such as weight reduction, increased engine efficiency, fuel savings, reduced CO2 emissions, and superior strength. The stringent regulations on the emission of CO2 from vehicles also serve as an important factor supporting the growth of polymer nanocomposites in the automotive industry. Apart from their use in the automotive sector, polymer nanocomposites also find applications in the construction industry for repair and rehabilitation of buildings and bridges.

The world polymer nanocomposites market is segmented in this report on the basis of type, application, and geography. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into carbon nanotubes, nanoclays, metal-oxide, ceramics, and others.
