Composites are an important class of advanced material that can offer high strength-to-weight ratios, resistance to corrosion, and workability in uses from speedier bicycles to more powerful wind turbines to more fuel-efficient aircraft. Composites are finding their way into new applications as aerospace, wind, oil and gas, automotive, and sporting goods companies demand higher-performance structural materials. However, so far, composites’ high cost has precluded them from many mass-market applications. To assess the penetration of advanced composites into these industries, Lux Research built a detailed model that projects the market sizes of raw materials and structural and conductive composites based on carbon fiber, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs). This webinar will cover the main trends from this analysis, including:
  • How industry specific dynamics both spur and slow adoption
  • Carbon fiber’s pioneering role in expanding the reach of advanced composites beyond niche high-performance applications
  • How developers have coped with the dispersion and viscosity issues of MWNTs and GNPs in order to leverage the great mechanical and electrical properties of these nanomaterials in structural and conductive composites
