The global advanced functional material market is anticipated to witness growth over the forecast period. The global increase in demand for low-cost sustainable energy solutions from end-user industry segments such as electronics and automobiles coupled with stringent government environmental regulations is expected to remain a key driving factor for the advanced functional material market (AFM) for the next six years. Systems and components incorporating AFMs consume energy more efficiently and emit lower carbon footprints into the environment. AFMs superior chemical & physical properties and load-bearing capacities tend to shift the manufacturer’s preference from conventional materials usage in the end-user industry. AFM market for low carbon applications include products such as advanced functional ceramics, advanced energy materials, conductive polymers, nanomaterials, and advanced functional composites. Advance functional ceramics are the largest of AFMs products consumed in end-user industries, such as power generation, aerospace, and automobiles along with usage in military applications.

Nanomaterials are expected to witness higher growth rates over the forecast period owing to the usage of nanotechnology and their applications in the manufacturing of Specialty chemicals, electronic devices, aerospace components, and healthcare devices & drugs. Advanced energy materials used in the manufacturing of photovoltaic energy materials and conductive polymers used for manufacturing electronic discharge protection devices has Asia Pacific as the largest regional market. Increasing demand for lightweight vehicles coupled with fuel economy is expected to drive the advanced functional material market for low carbon emissions applications over the forecast period. Nanocomposites and nanomaterials are being increasingly used for automobile manufacturing which contributes to vehicle’s weight reduction and deliver economic performance. The growth of electronics and electrical industry is expected to significantly augment AFM market for low carbon emissions applications.

Electronics & electrical industry is one of the largest AFM consumers with advanced functional ceramics, conductive polymers, and nanomaterials being a major contributor to this segment. Advance functional ceramics used in the electronics & electrical industry exhibit piezo-electric, magnetic, semiconducting, and conducting properties which make them feasible for use in applications such as cellular phones and computers. Advanced functional ceramics finds use as capacitor components, integrated circuits, insulators, and transducers. Lack of expansion capacities to meet market demand coupled with technology improvement is expected to hamper advanced functional material market participant’s growth. Investments in R&D to develop niche product using advance functional composites for aerospace and automobiles is expected to open a new gate of opportunities for AFM industry participants. Increasing the use of advanced functional composites which are manufactured by combining two or more materials retains distinctive properties that are being developed by industry participants.

These composites increase strength and reduce weight which results in lower energy consumption and increase components service life. Renewable power generation devices are expected to be the fastest-growing applications for Advance functional composites. Major demand is expected from the emerging advanced functional material market of Asia Pacific. Countries in this region such as China, India, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia are expected to witness higher growth rates. Growth of end-user industry segments such as automobiles, power, paints & chemicals, infrastructure, and aerospace are attributing to increasing AFMs demand.  Other major demand is expected from key regions of Europe owing to the growth of the automobile sector.  Key industrial participants include 3M Company, ReneSola Ltd, DuPont, and Bayer AG. Other major players include Ceradyne, Inc., Kyocera Corporation, Samsung Electro Mechanics Company, and Momentive Performance Materials, Inc.
