The Global Market for Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)

0

Published May 2019, 45 pages, 12 tables, 5 figure

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. Companies profiled include BASF SE, Framergy, Inc., MOFgen Ltd., MOF Technologies, Mosaic Materials, MOFApps AS, MOFWORX, novoMOF AG, NuMat Technologies, Inc., ProfMOF AS and Promethean Particles Ltd.
