The reason for desperate acts like this is that carbon nanotube producers have been on a capacity increase binge for the last few years without demand increasing that has left the market for the stuff oversupplied to say the least.
Based on some analysis I have seen, the low, spot pricing for MWNTs have dropped from $700/kg in 2006 to below $100/kg in 2009 and the price is expected to go down further, reaching $50/kg by next year. But truth be told, nobody buys raw carbon nanotubes. There is no market for them. Instead the market consists of sales of dispersions, master batches and prepregs.
