This Advanced Materials Research Review provides:
- Information about emerging electronic materials technologies and applications that are most likely to achieve significant commercial sales in the next five to 10 years
- Analysis of the global graphene technologies market and applications with the greatest commercial potential in the 2012-to-2022 time frame, identifying market drivers and evaluating obstacles to their successful commercialization and projecting future sales.
- An overview of specialty fiber types including a history of fiber development, technology trends, status of commercial development, barriers to entry and market leaders.
- BCC expects the first commercially significant sales of graphene products to develop before 2015 when the market is projected to be as large as $67 million. The graphene market should start to take off after 2015, reaching nearly $675 million by 2020, reflecting a 58.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2015 and 2020.
- BCC Research forecasts a promising near future for photonic crystals. The market was $2.1 billion in the year 2010, is expected to reach $5.2 billion in 2011, and $34.5 billion by 2016 with a CAGR of 46.1%.
- The global market for nonwoven filter media is projected to experience a 7% CAGR over the next 5 years, increasing from a value of $2.5 billion in 2010 to $3.5 billion in 2015.
Microspheres, spherical micro particles 1 micron to 1,000 microns in diameter, are innovative raw materials with superior functionality that help improve the quality of the final product at a reduced cost. Microspheres are a growing element in many companies’ tool boxes. The global market for microspheres in 2010 is estimated to be $2 billion and growing at a 5–year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6%, reaching global sales of $3.5 billion by 2015.
The global market for superconductivity applications is expected to reach nearly $2 billion in 2010 and nearly $3.4 billion in 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3% over the next 5 years. Superconducting magnets, particularly those used in science, research and technology development, and healthcare applications dominate the market. However, superconducting electrical equipment is expected to capture nearly 25% of the market by 2015.
The total demand for the North American commercial roofing market is estimated to grow by a 12.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in total market value and by an 8.8% CAGR in total market volume. By 2014, it is estimated that the total market value will reach more than $5.8 billion, derived from sales of more than 74.3 million squares of product. As energy costs continue to rise, the ability of roofing materials to reduce utility bills will begin to play a much larger role in helping to calculate the actual cost-effectiveness of the roofing system. The rise in popularity of green building has produced a new demand in the market for a larger variety of recycled roofing materials.
