The Global Market for Metamaterials to 2030

0

Metamaterials are artificially engineered composites with exceptional material properties (acoustic, electrical, magnetic, optical, etc.). 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 and 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 2018.
  • Global revenue estimates to 2030 by markets.
  • Stage of commercialization for metamaterials applications, from basic research to market entry.
