About Nanofiber

Nanofibers is a nano-object with the size of 1 billionth of a meter. The fibers are made through electrospinning, which is the most common and commercially used way of manufacturing nanofibers. Through this process, an electrified polymer solution is moved in a high voltage electric field to give elongated nanofibers.

Many nanofibers are laid over one another to form a nano mat. A nano mat is a breathable fabric, but it is so small in sixe that it does not allow even the entry of bacteria. Based on these properties, nanofibers find huge applications in various field applications like filtration, catalysts, semiconductors, optical waveguides, fuel cells, composites, tissue repair, sensors, and scanning probe microscopy in industries such as mechanical, chemical, electronics, energy, automotive, aerospace, sensors, and instrumentation.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global nanofiber market to grow at a CAGR of 24.12% during the period 2016-2020.
