概要

ある原料の供給不足リスクと、その結果として経済にもたらされる影響が、他の原料よりも大きい場合に、その原料は「重要(critical)」な原料と称されるようになります。重要原料の既存ナノテクノロジー用途の市場は、2012年には65億米ドルに近い規模でした。同市場は2013年には69億米ドル近い規模まで拡大する見込みで、その後はCAGR(年間複合成長率)6.5%で成長し、2018年には94億米ドル近い市場規模になる見込みとなっています。

当レポートでは、ナノテクノロジー市場における重要原料を取り上げ、アンチモン、バリウム、ガリウム、インジウム、マグネシウム、ニオブなどの主要な原料について、その特性、生産・需要、ナノスケールにおける用途、ナノテクノロジーにおける代用品を概括するとともに、主要な企業のプロファイルをまとめるなど、概略下記の構成でお届けいたします。

Product Code: AVM103A

The market for existing nanotechnology applications of critical materials was worth nearly $6.5 billion in 2012. This market is expected to reach nearly $6.9 billion in 2013 and nearly $9.4 billion in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% for the five-year period, 2013 to 2018.

This report provides:

  • A market overview of the critical materials used in global nanotechnology industries.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of CAGRs for the period 2013 and 2018.
  • Coverage of those critical materials whose shortages can be alleviated or avoided through the application of various nanotechnologies.
  • Quantification of the potential reductions in critical materials consumption and the net economic cost to achieve them.
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the industries covered.

INTRODUCTION

A raw material is labeled “critical” when the risks of a supply shortage and the resulting impacts on the economy are higher than those of other raw materials. Basic availability is not the only factor affecting a critical material's overall supply risk. Other factors include political or regulatory risks in countries that are major producers of critical materials, lack of diversity in producers, and demand from competing technologies.

STUDY BACKGROUND

The United States and other advanced economies depend on the continued availability of various critical materials to ensure their economic prosperity and in some cases their national security. Strategies for ensuring the continued availability of these critical materials include stockpiling, developing new domestic supplies or substitution.

Critical materials potentially affect the nanotechnology market in at least three ways:

  • Some nanotechnology applications may become less attractive because they use materials in short supply, at risk of shortage or subject to price increases.
  • Other nanotechnologies may become more attractive because they use smaller quantities of critical materials than macroscale applications or use no critical materials at all.
  • It may be possible to nanoengineer certain noncritical materials so they become replacements for critical materials.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The overall goal of this report is to analyze the interrelationships between critical materials and nanotechnology.

Specific objectives include:

  • Identifying current nanotechnology applications of critical materials, whose economics or even feasibility are negatively affected by potential shortages of those materials.
  • Identifying nanotechnology applications that can help to alleviate or avoid shortages of critical materials.
  • Analyzing and quantifying the resulting impacts on the nanotechnology market.

SCOPE OF REPORT

“Critical materials” is a relative term. The list of critical materials varies among countries and industries, depending on their specific circumstances. In selecting the materials to be covered in this report, BCC Research drew from a number of sources, including reports published by the U.S. Department of Energy, the European Union, the British Geological Survey and the German Institut für Zukunftstudien und Technologie-bewertung.

Not all of the critical materials identified in these reports have implications for the nanotechnology market. This study focuses on those critical materials that have potential nanotechnology applications or for which nanotechnology-based substitutes exist:

  • Antimony.
  • Barium.
  • Gallium.
  • Indium.
  • Magnesium.
  • Niobium
  • Platinum group metals (PGMs).
  • Rare earths (e.g., yttrium, dysprosium, erbium, terbium, thulium, scandium).
  • Rhenium.
  • Tantalum.
  • Tellurium.
  • Tungsten.

For each of these materials, the report contains an assessment of:

  • Critical material supply/demand situation, price trends and risk of disruption.
  • Applications in which nanotechnology can contribute to reducing/avoiding consumption of critical materials.
  • Technology assessment/market leaders.
  • Impact on the market for various nanotechnologies.
