The Global Market for Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)

0

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and related materials are a class of crystalline nanoporous molecular scaffolds. MOFs possess excellent chemical and physical properties and can be assembled from a variety of metals and a large number of organic linkers to produce highly ordered, 3D structures. They possess:

  • structural tailorability
  • controlled porosity
  • high surface area
  • abundant functional groups.

MOFs are highly attractive for a range of industrial applications as they use non-hazardous feedstock, are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. They are potentially key materials in industrial adsorption, storage processes and catalysis. MOFs can be used to store, separate, release or protect in a range of applications including:

  • gas storage and separation
  • chemical separations
  • catalysis
  • batteries
  • biomedicine.

A number of start-ups are bringing MOF products to the market, and production volumes have increased in the past two years.

Report contents include:

  • Properties of Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
  • Applications of Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
  • Addressable markets for Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
  • Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) roadmap.
  • Production and pricing.
  • Profiles of 12 companies including products and targetted markets.
