Nanofibers Technologies Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Nanofibers belong to the market of nanotechnology. They are fibers with diameters less than 100 nanometers. Most nanofibers are produced by electrospinning which is the most conventional method of production. Spinning biocomponent fiber is another emerging technique of nanofiber production. Some other nanofiber production methods include melt spinning, template synthesis, electroblowing, self-assembly, and forcespinning.
Most often the material used in nanofibers production includes nylon, polyacrylonitrile, polystyrene, PEO, polycarbonate, water-soluble polymers, and PET. The properties of nanofibers depend significantly on the material used for production.
The nanofibers market is expected to post a considerable growth in the next decade due to its unique properties such as large specific surface area, small pore size, high porosity, and a smaller diameter size over the conventional fibers. Nanofibers find its majority of applications in the mechanical and chemical industry which accounts for more than half of the total market share. North America represents the largest regional market for nonofibers.
The unique properties of nonofibers enhance materials in terms of electrical and optical quality, mechanical strength, reactivity, and permeability of layers and mechanical strength which hopes to find its application in health care, energy conservations and storage, food and packaging, and environmental protection. Nanofibers are steadily replacing melt blown webs in the filtration area due to its larger surface area and smaller micropores. Nonofibers are most often used to filter submicron particles from water and air. Electrospun are special types of nanofibers used in wound dressing, tissue engineering, drug delivery and medical implants.
The importance of nanofibers in commercial applications is growing rapidly. Nanofiber manufacturers are investing a significant amount evolving new production techniques which will further improve the capability of nanofibers. In 2005, Elmarco launched a Nanofiber which is the first technology in the world that enabled production of nanofibers on a commercial scale.
