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.
