Polymer nanocomposites are a new class of materials containing solid nanoinclusions in the forms of nanotubes, nanoparticles, nanofibres or nanoclays in a single or multiphase polymer matrix. Compared to their conventional polymer composite counterparts, they possess some unique and outstanding functional and mechanical properties, such as dimensional stability, scratch resistance, enhanced processing properties,
Global polymer nanocomposites market to reach above $5,100 million by 2020
The market for polymer nanocomposites in terms of value is expected to reach above $5,100 million by 2020, growing at a significant CAGR from 2014 to 2019. The Asia-Pacific region dominated the polymer nanocomposites market in terms of values in 2013 and it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR, from 2014 to 2020. Large packaging industry and increasing automotive and aerospace industry in Asia-Pacific region helped it to dominate the global market. The electrical & electronics market in Eastern Asian market, driving the polymer nanocomposites application market.
So all the SMEs in Plastics industry should open their eyes to see the possibility of integrating these material in their new product development projects.
