Published: 24 Feb 2017

Development of new ceramic nanocomposites is gaining importance due to a sustained end application requirements for high performance and durable composites. Growing demand for ceramic nanocomposites is mainly driven by the needs from automotive, aerospace, construction, and energy industries have spurred research and developmental efforts across the globe. Carbon nanotube (CNT)-based ceramic nanocomposites are of key research focus due to the significant capabilities of CNTs to improve the mechanical and electrical parameters of versatile materials. While the market for these materials is witnessing an upward trajectory, many innovations are still not widely adopted due to scalability issues and need for effective large scale manufacturing processes and the material adoption is still restricted to niche applications. The Nanotech TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on nanotechnology-related innovations and their impact across various industries. Technology focus areas include nanomaterials, nanocoatings, nanohealthcare, nanomedicine, and nanomanufacturing. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Ceramic nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes, zirconia nanocrystals, conductive magnetic nanocomposite, nanocomposite cathode
