Report Examines Opportunities for Nanomaterials in Sporting Applications

Published on August 20, 2009 at 3:16 AM

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "Opportunities for Nanomaterials in Sporting Applications - 2008-2013: Trend, Forecast and Competitive Analysis" report to their offering.

Nanomaterials have been a revelation of the 21st century. It has brought about drastic changes in a number of application markets like the aerospace, industrial applications, energy and sports. The total annual production of carbon nanotubes which is the only significant nanomaterial used in sporting applications has grown immensely over the last few years and carbon nanotubes formed a $100 Million market in 2007 and is expected to grow at a pace never surpassed before in this market. Producers of carbon nanotubes are planning to setup production units with capacities in thousands of tonnes by 2012.

This tells the scope and opportunity for this market. Sports applications, at present make up for a 14 percent of the total consumption of carbon nanotubes, but as the production of carbon nanotubes goes on increasing, this percentage is expected to be translated into a significant figure. Golf shafts, rackets, skis and snowboards are the major users of carbon nanotubes, which is the major nanomaterial used in sporting applications.
