Dublin, Oct. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2vcdwh/advanced) has announced the addition of the "Advanced Functional Material Market For Low Carbon Applications by Categories, Applications & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018" report to their offering.
AFM (Advanced Functional Material) for low carbon applications is an umbrella topic, which has five categories of materials. These include advanced functional ceramics, advanced functional composites, advanced energy materials, nanomaterials, and conductive polymers. AFM are substituting conventional material because of their superior physical and chemical properties. AFM are capable of reducing the carbon footprint of the parent system in which it is incorporated. Components and systems that use AFMs use energy more efficiently and emit less CO2. They will have a longer service life and a lower replacement footprint. Replacement footprint refers to the addition carbon footprint generated during manufacturing of the component that is to be replaced. End user industries for AFM include automotive, aerospace, consumer durables, energy & power, and healthcare.
