Smart cities: a $400bn opportunity for advanced materials

18th December 2020
Lanna Cooper

This webinar explains how, of the trillions of dollars being spent on smart cities, the advanced materials part is rising to hundreds of billions yearly. Newly multipurpose buildings make food and surplus energy. Learn how multifunctional infrastructure, equipment and materials are making possible independence in city energy, food and water with zero emissions, greater security and empowerment of the disadvantaged.

Learn materials for 3D printing of buildings, vehicles and parts, 3DP electronics. Smart cities widely deploy multifunctional composites, structural electronics, smart glass, transparent smart plastic. Progress with magnetic and transparent concrete? Green concrete, newly possible recycling (wind turbine blades, fluoropolymers, batteries) collapse the 16% of global warming caused by regular concrete and steel, eliminate massive tidal barrages, power stations, hydro dams outside cities and toxigens.

Grasp the flexible organics, membranes, bioplastics, advanced polymers, thermal interface materials, thermal insulation, 2D and 3D molecules, graphene, CNT, materials for 5G, 6G and THz electronics and the huge $35 billion market ahead for the varied materials providing ubiquitous photovoltaic power that silicon cannot serve.

Hear some of the over 50 gaps in the market identified by the IDTechEx multilingual, PhD level analysts.

IDTechEx will be hosting the same webinar three times in one day, so please join which ever session is the most convenient for you. Spaces are limited.
