April 2021, 420 pages, 88 figures, 176 tables

The global carbon nanotubes market is growing rapidly, driven by demand for conductive materials for applications in electronics and batteries for electric vehicles. LG Chem has recently announced completion a 1,200 metric ton (MT) expansion of their CNT production capacity to 1,700 MT. At the end of 2020, Carbice Corporation raised $15 million to develop CNTs for thermal management in electronics. Cabot Corporation  acquired Shenzhen Sanshun Nano New Materials Co., Ltd (SUSN) for approximately $115 million.

Multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) powders, arrays, sheets, flakes, films and yarns have found applications in consumer electronics, power cables, batteries, polymer composites, coatings, aerospace, sensors, heaters, filters and biomedicine. Large-scale industrial production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) has been initiated, promising new market opportunities in rubber, coatings, transparent conductive films, transistors, sensors and memory devices.
