4/15/2019, 11:55 AM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, April 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Nanotechnology in Energy Applications" report has been added to's offering.

The report focuses on the global market for nanoscale materials (e.g., nanopowders, nanocomposites, nanoscale thin films and others) and devices (e.g., nanosensors) used in renewable and non-renewable energy production (e.g., petroleum refining, solar energy) and energy storage (e.g. batteries and fuel cells).

In the other types of applications (e.g. energy transmission, energy conversion, energy end uses), nanotechnology consumption is negligible.

The report concentrates on nanotechnology applications that are currently in commercial use or are likely to be commercialized by 2023.

The report format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Description of nanomaterials and nanodevices used in energy applications, including properties and fabrication methods.
  • Overall market size, segmentation and growth trends.
  • Major energy applications of nanoscale materials and devices.
  • Description.
  • Types of nanomaterials/nanodevices used.
  • Principal developers/manufacturers.
  • Patents.
  • Journal publications.
  • Consumption of nanomaterials and nanodevices, 2018-2023.

Estimated values used are based on manufacturers' total revenues. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.
