Materials Informatics: The Next Research Revolution?

May 07, 2017 | State of the Market Report

Discovery, selection, and optimization, and commercialization of advanced materials is a slow and expensive process that often fails to deliver desired results. Today's materials design software alone cannot accelerate this commercialization process and deliver better performing parts and products at lower cost. Materials informatics is an artificial intelligence technology that is now demonstrating cost savings, time savings, and performance improvement at the material and process levels. This report covers the emerging startup landscape, key case studies at the materials and process level, the application of the technology to different classes of materials, and provides strategic recommendations to companies looking to innovate across the materials-to-product value chain.
