This is why Tekna enjoys a 9% market share and is growing in a global market where additive manufacturing is on track to outperform traditional machining. With over five years of commercial experience and a 54% compound annual growth rate we attained millions in revenues from vertical in 2020 and secured qualification and sales with the majority of aerospace original equipment manufacturers.
Nano powders below 100 nm (0201M) are expected to become the new industry standard and Tekna is one of only two producers who can deliver. With our sights on securing industrial scale supply to global tier 1 customers in the microelectronics industry. Demand is driven by the sharp increase in consumer electronics (IoT), 5G, electrical and autonomous vehicles.
Tekna has developed and patented its industrial process for the production of high purity spherical silicon nano powder. Sample deliveries of high-performance nano silicon powders are revolutionizing the global battery market. Nano silicon solution for rechargeable batteries could provide electric vehicles with 60% more distance travelled on a single charge. The Lithium-Ion battery market is driven by the electrification of transportation (cars and planes), mobile devices and power grids.
