Global Advanced Functional Material Market Expected to Generate Revenue of $1,13,881.9 Million by 2018

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the Global Advanced Functional Material Market - Includes Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The present AFM market growing with a CAGR of 6.6% is expected to generate global revenue of $1,13,881.9 million by 2018. AFMs for low carbon applications include five categories of materials. These are advanced functional ceramics, advanced functional composites, advanced energy materials, conductive polymers, and nanomaterials. The demand for AFMs is derived from industries such as electrical & electronics, energy & power, automotive, aerospace, and healthcare & pharmaceuticals. AFMs reduce the carbon footprint of the component in which it is incorporated in three ways.

Nanomaterials are used in several industries due to its magnetic, optical, catalytic, and electronic properties. There are already established markets for nanomaterials such as titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, silicon oxide nanopowders and carbon nanotubes, nanofibers, nanosilver, nanoclays, quantum dots, and nanoporous materials. Nanoparticles are used in applications such as filtration, electronics, cosmetics, energy, medicine, chemicals, coatings, and catalysts.

Two different types of advanced functional composites are covered in this report. These are metal matrix composites and fiber reinforced plastics. Advanced functional composite materials can be separated into three categories based on the strengthening mechanism. These categories are dispersion strengthened, particle reinforced, and fibre reinforced. Asia-Pacific with a CAGR of 9.2% is the fastest growing market for advanced functional composites.
