DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Carbon Nanotubes Market: Analysis By Technology, By Type, By Application, By Region Size and Trends with Impact of COVID-19 and Forecast up to 2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of approx. 15% during the forecasted period of 2023-2028. The global carbon nanotube (CNT) market was valued at US$5.72 billion in 2022. The market value is forecasted to grow to US$13.32 billion by 2028.

Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) are one dimensional allotropes of carbon made by rolled-up sheets of single-layer carbon atoms (graphene). Carbon nanotubes are composed of carbon atoms linked in hexagonal shapes, with each carbon atom covalently bonded to three other carbon atoms. The properties and applications of carbon nanotubes can vary depending on their type, diameter, length, and functionalization.

Rising global energy demand, ongoing advancements in material science and manufacturing technologies, increasing use of CNTs as conductive fillers in ESD materials, EMI Shielding, & electronics packaging, favourable government initiatives to reduce greenhouse emissions and promote renewable energy sources, etc., have been positively contributing towards increased demand for carbon nanotubes.

Other significant factor is ongoing technological advancements and innovations in the market by CNT manufacturing companies to remain competitive in the market and strengthen their current portfolios, while attracting new customers.
