The Global Market for Metamaterials

0

Published January 2020, 112 pages, 34 tables, 50 figures 

Metamaterials applications will represent a multi-billion market within the next decade with product advances in radar and lidar for autonomous vehicles, telecommunications antenna,  5G networks, coatings, vibration damping, wireless charging, noise prevention and more.

Metamaterials are artificially engineered structures with exceptional material properties (acoustic, electrical, magnetic, optical, etc.). They comprise arrays of resonators that manipulate electromagnetic waves or sound in ways not normally found in nature.

Possessing customized dielectric properties and tunable responses they allow for excellent flexibility in a range of applications, their use enabling the manipulation of fields and waves at a subwavelength scale.

Initial R&D in metamaterials has focused on cloaking and light manipulation, but the last few years has seen applications development in:

  • telecommunications
  • acoustics
  • sensors
  • radar imaging
  • optics (terahertz and infrared)
  • coatings & films
  • lidar systems for self-driving cars
  • medical imaging.

There are now over 25 metamaterials product developers worldwide, who have received >$300 million in recent investment as the metamaterials market picks up again after a sluggish few years.

Report contents include:

  • Description of the global metamaterials market in 2019.
  • Global revenue estimates to 2030 by markets.
  • Stage of commercialization for metamaterials applications, from basic research to market entry.
