Forecast Report on Global Advanced Functional Materials Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Advanced Functional Materials Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Advanced Functional Materials market will grow at a CAGR of 6.39% to 2018

Rising demand for advanced functional materials from the Transportation industry is expected to be a major driver for the Global Advanced Functional Materials market. Such demand can be primarily attributed to the trend of lightweight vehicles to improve fuel economy and the durability of transportation systems. This, in turn, is expected to result in an increased demand for materials such as nanomaterials and nanocomposites, which provide a high potential for both weight reduction and enhanced performance. Also, increasing use of composites instead of conventional materials is expected to drive market growth.

According to the report, many drivers are contributing to the growth of the Global Advanced Functional Materials market, the most important of which is an increase in demand from the Electrical and Electronics industry.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is production constraints. Issues with scaling-up production quantities to meet industrial demand is restricting market growth.
