Nanofibers have exceptionally high surface area-to-volume ratio and high porosity, which makes them attractive materials for a range of applications. Their use is growing in drug delivery systems, medical implants, water and air filtration, face masks and protective clothing. The new BMW electric M-series automobile incorporates nanofiber air filtration.  They have wide-ranging morphologies, and are produced using a variety of materials such as:

  • Natural polymers.
  • Synthetic polymers.
  • Carbon nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes, graphene, carbon nanofibers)
  • Semiconducting materials
  • Composite materials.
  • Chitin
  • Wood and other pulp (cellulose nanofibers)

 

Techniques such as centrifugal spinning, electrospinning, meltblowing and bicomponent spinning have been studied extensively for the production of nanofibers with varying degrees of commercial success. There have also been several new synthesis methods developed. The market for nanofibers generally encompasses polymer nanofibers, alumina nanofibers and to a lesser extent carbon nanofiber and cellulose nanofibers. This report mainly focused on electrospun nanofibers. 

Main applications of nanofibers are:

  • Air/water filtration (membranes).
  • Composites.
  • Bio medical (bone/skin regeneration, tissue scaffolds, hydrogel bandages for woundcare, antimicrobial wound dressings).
  • Protective textiles
  • Flexible sensors for wearable electronics.
  • Energy Storage (battery separators, conductive additives for batteries).
  • Skincare.

 

Report contents include:

  • Global revenues for nanofibers, historical and forecast to 2031.
  • Current products.
  • Market drivers, trends and challenges, by end user markets.
  • End user market assessment for nanofibers in textiles, medical and healthcare, electronics, filtration, batteries, sensors, composites, etc.
  • In-depth profiles of 86 nanofiber companies, include products, capacities, production processes and commercial activities. Nanofiber companies profiled include Respilon, BIG-nano Corp, Inc., Gelatex Technologies, DiPole Materials, Bioinicia, Nanovia s.r.o., Inovenso Ltd., Finetex Ene, Inc., NE, NXTNano,  Nanolayr, Verdex Technologies, 4C Air, N2Cell, Avalon Nanofiber and many more.
