Nanofibers are traditionally defined as cylindrical structures having an outer diameter below 1000 nm and an aspect ratio (the ratio between length and width) greater than 50. Over the years, several types of nanofibers have been developed: carbon, ceramic, glass, metal and alloy, organic, semiconducting, and composite.

BCC Research has identified nine main industry segments where nanofibers have current and potential uses: consumer, defense and security, electronics/optoelectronics, energy, life science, mechanical/chemical/environmental, sensors and instrumentation, thermal and acoustic insulation, and transportation.

This study highlights the latest developments in nanofiber technology, including material types, fabrication processes, and applications. It also offers a detailed market analysis for nanofiber-based products by segment (material, application, and region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

As shown in the Summary Table, the global market for nanofiber products increased from REDACTED in 2016 to REDACTED in 2017 and is estimated to be valued at REDACTED by the end of 2018, corresponding to a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED during the two-year period. Applications within the mechanical/chemical/environmental sector currently account for the largest share of the market, at an estimated REDACTED of the total in 2018, corresponding to REDACTED in sales. Within this sector, nanofibers are being used primarily for the fabrication of filtration media and catalysts.

Nanofiber products for life science represent the second-largest segment in 2018, with total revenues of REDACTED, equal to REDACTED of the total. These products consist mainly of wound dressings, tissue engineering scaffolds, and biomedical membranes.

Energy and electronics/optoelectronics currently account for smaller, but still relevant, shares of the market at REDACTED and REDACTED of the total, respectively in 2018, while all the remaining applications (including consumer, sensors, instrumentation, thermal and acoustic insulation, and defense and security) representa combined share of REDACTED.
