Nanofiber market to reach $4 billion by 2020

With productivity increase and enhancement of applications, nanofiber market size will be about 4 billion US dollars, according to Mr. Kial Gramley of FibeRio Technology Corporation, USA.

Mr. Gramley, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at FibeRio Technology Corporation, introduced recent advancements in the Forcespinning nanofiber production at the 2011 Spring Materials Interest Group meeting of the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, on May 25th in Research Triangle Park, USA.

FibeRio debuted mechanical method of nanofiber production called Forcespinning last year. The process is aimed at productivity increase to enhance the scope of nanofiber application in a wide array of products. In a question posed by this scribe on the productivity comparison with other existing methods of nanofiber production, Mr. Gramley said the centrifugal force method of FibeRio technology is at least one order magnitude higher in productivity. Durability of nanowebs is still a challenge and a panacea is yet to be achieved.

Wellesley, MA-USA based BCC Research in June last year estimated the current nanofiber market size to be about 140 million US dollars and is expected to reach 2.2 billion US dollars by 2020.
