US Nanofibers Market By Type (Polymer, Carbon, Cellulose, Composite, Metallic, etc.), By End Use Industry (Mechanical, Chemical & Environment, Electronics, Healthcare etc.), Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2012 – 2026
Nanofibers are fibers with a diameter of 100 nanometers or less. Nanofibers offer various advantages as compared to conventional fibers, such as high surface area, small pore size and high pore volume. These characteristics make them open to many innovative applications including wound care, medical prostheses, haemostatic devices, sensor devices, electrical conductors, cosmetic and countless others. Growing government support, increasing R&D activities coupled with surging demand for nanofibers from emerging applications in electronics and healthcare industries are expected to drive US nanofibers market during 2017-2026. Rising adoption of nanofibers in technical textiles to impart desired characteristics, including high durability, high tensile strength, water and fire resistant properties, antimicrobial properties, etc., to textile products, in addition to increasing utilization of nanofibers in energy storage devices such as rechargeable batteries, solar cells, fuel cells, etc., is further anticipated to positively influence the country’s nanofibers market during the forecast period.
