Scope of Carbon Nanotube Market Report:

Carbon Nanotubes or CNTs consists of rolled-up sheets in the form of cylindrical structure of carbon atoms. These structures can have single walled layer with diameter less than 1 nanometer (nm) or multi walled layer with diameter up to 100nm. These structures were discovered by Iijima around 1991 in carbon arc chambers. The carbon nanotubes have extraordinary properties like electrical conductivity, light weight, thermal conductivity and tensile strength because of the high forces between carbon atoms. These properties make CNTs highly attractive for various applications like electronics, optics, nanotechnology, material science and composite materials. For the production of Carbon Nanotubes various methods have been adopted by manufacturers such as combusted electrically using lasers, metals are being used as catalysts in the process and CNTs are developed in gaseous forms.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the industries on a global level in such a way that few have grown twice, and some are still trying to stabilize their position. Carbon nanotubes have their application in various industries but mainly it is used in electronics, aviation and others. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 the government has imposed lockdown which has led to the shutdown of manufacturing units for the longest period of time. On the other hand, economic crisis has led to layoffs unemployment and others. Both the factors together created demand and supply gap which is going to have negative affect on the carbon nanotube market for new few months and expected to show speedy recovery in near future.
