Like nanotechnology in general, carbon nanotubes (CNT) are seen -- depending on the industry you're in and your world outlook -- as the enabling technology for cleantech or a possible environmental and health hazard. They are viewed as a creator of jobs and of new market opportunities. They are optimistically seen as an engine for an elevator to the stars and a lift out of economic recession.
They can, of course, already be seen in a few products, like tennis rackets and bicycles, but nothing on the scale that yet match the hype that has surrounded them in the decade and a half since they were first produced. However, if you take a look at some of the companies, new and old, that are developing new ways of making and applying CNTs, you might cautiously conclude that nanotube prosperity is right around the corner.
