Complete report is available at http://www.marketreportsonline.com/317452.html .

The commercial development of nanocellulose over the last few years has mainly been driven by the ever-increasing prices of petroleum and the high-energy intensity in production of chemicals and synthetic polymers. Today there is a substantial amount of research on nanostructured cellulose, and commercial development is now underway with some very promising applications. Utilizing the appropriate conversion and extraction technologies as well as modification and characterization, nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC), micro/nanofibrillar cellulose (MFC/NFC) and bacterial cellulose (BC) can be integrated into bio-based products.

Their use in novel materials and various applications potentially has substantial environmental and economic benefits. Nanocellulose can be produced from several raw materials and applying various pre-treatments and has great potential as a strength enhancer in paper, as additives in composites, in emulsions, as oxygen barriers for food packaging and in biomedical devices.

Nanocellulose is also being developed for novel use in applications ranging from scaffolds in tissue engineering, artificial skin and cartilage, wound healing and vessel substitutes to biodegradable food packaging. Applications in polymer reinforcement and anti-microbial films will be hitting the market soon. FP Innovations estimates the market to be worth $250 million in North America by 2020.

The Global Market for Carbon Nanotubes to 2024 research report says that once the most promising of all nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are in danger of being usurped in conductive applications by graphene and in composites by nanocellulose. However, CNTs will remain competitive against these materials, and potentially complementary. After considerable research efforts, real products are coming to the market. Transparent conductors, battery additives and transistors represent the most promising markets for CNTs. They are widely viewed as viable candidates as alternatives to ITO in transparent conductors and the main candidate to replace silicon in transistors. Products including CNT TEM grids and CNT touch panels have already been commercialized. CNT yarns and sheets have demonstrated promising performance improvements for applications such as supercapacitors, actuators, and lightweight electromagnetic shields. Single-walled nanotube (SWNT) products will also be hitting the market over the next year. Advances in CNT synthesis, purification and chemical modification are also enabling integration of CNTs in thin-film electronics and large-area coatings. In May 2014, OCSiAl and Zeon Corporation both announced plans to significantly increase SWNT production, and applications such as SWNT super-capacitors and composites are coming to market soon.

On similar lines, the Nanomaterials Producers Directory 2014-2015: Producer profiles and nanomaterials produced by type provides an in-depth guide to all nanomaterials producers in a single-volume, categorised by nanomaterials, types sold and countries where the sellers are based, in one easy-to-access publications. Numerous online directories and maps have been produced covering nanomaterials and nanotech companies but are incomplete, outdated, and poor to navigate or inadequately categorised. Each section in the Nanomaterials Directory 2014-2015 provides a succinct market introduction to the nanomaterials type from carbon nanotubes through to quantum dots, and alphabetized profiles of each producer. Microscopy, deposition and imaging equipment and instrumentation suppliers are also profiled.

There is also a handy reference guide at the back of the directory which provides further distillation of nanomaterials providers (for example, metal oxides nanopowders producers is a single chapter as most sell more than one nanomaterial-the reference guide outlines the specific type of metal oxide nanopowders each producer sells). The reference guide also alphabetically lists each producer by country. For example, you will be able to view all the nanomaterials producers based in Canada. The electronic version of the directory is valid for 12 months from publication date and will be updated as the market changes. Therefore subscribers will have access to constantly updated details of the nanomaterials market through to November 2015. The Directory covers producers of all three categories of nanomaterials, including zero-dimensions (quantum dots), one-dimension (carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles) and two-dimensions (graphene). An additional 150 companies have been added since publication of the first edition in February 2014. The Nanomaterials Directory 2014-2015 is a unique index of all the main providers of nanomaterials, segmented by nanomaterials type and location and an essential reference guide for anyone involved in the sector.
