Carbon Nanotubes Manufacturers Market | France

Twenty years after their discovery by a Japanese nanotechnology researcher, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are becoming increasingly popular. The global market is exploding and is estimated at nearly 1 billion euros. CNTs have many advantageous qualities: robustness, lightness, elasticity and excellent electrical conductivity. This is why major chemical groups such as Bayer and Arkema are investing so much in this molecule for the future.

Apart from these multinationals, the majority of NTC manufacturers are spin-offs based on a team of university researchers with innovative ideas. The difficulty for the latter is the transition from laboratory creation to the industrial phase. This results in significant expenditures requiring manufacturers to raise funds. As the sector is attractive, there are many interested investors. There are two types of carbon nanotubes: single-walled (SWNT) or multi-walled (MWNT). Manufacturers offering both techniques are rare. Examples of manufacturers include Nanoledge, NanoIntegris and Catalyx Nanotech.

The sectors interested in CNT are mapped out in numerous and varied ways:

  • the automobile industry (particularly for body parts and pneumatic fuel systems)
  • electronics (such as chemical sensors, displays and transistors)
  • sports equipment (tennis rackets, golf clubs, boat masts, etc.)
  • biomedical solutions
  • aerospace
  • solar panels

Currently, the main challenge for the CNT manufacturers is to meet the expectations placed on them. Very high production costs and technical sophistication further delay the real commercialisation of parts manufactured on the basis of carbon nanotubes. Public health is the other aspect to be taken seriously by manufacturers. Particularly with regards to the asbestos scandal of 2012 which has also left its mark on the nation and recent studies have highlighted the common properties of these two materials.
