As a Research Professor at Qatar University’s Center of Advanced Materials and member of the Organizing Committee of the Materials Chemistry Summit 2019 (MCS 2019), I would like to welcome all delegates to Montreal in beautiful Canada. Materials Science is an overarching field of topics from inorganic to organic and biomaterials, and from the development of new materials to the determination of structure-property relationships in a variety of materials ranging from newly developed materials to blends, composites, and nano-structured materials.
MCS 2019 gives the opportunity to researchers from academia and industry to interact and share their knowledge and expertise to the benefit of all who are working in this field. As Organizing Committee of MCS 2019, we wish you a very fruitful conference, and we trust that all of you will go away with new ideas and partners for future collaboration.

Importance and Scope
Materials science is evolving every day. With increasing urbanization and new generation demands for smart technology, better health security, wellness is impacting the market greatly; there is intense pressure on resources such as transportation, housing, energy, and civil infrastructure and most especially the chemicals and materials industry to support developments across these sectors. Millions of chemical and material combinations create challenges for scientists when applying them to real-world applications that consumers touch every day.
The composites and polymers segment dominated the global lightweight materials market accounting for a market share of 30.4%, in 2015. Nanomaterials Market is expected to reach USD 55,016 million by 2022 from USD 14,741.6 million in 2015, supported by a CAGR of 20.7%. Research plays a unique role in this industry, driven by production costs (and ultimately the cost of the material to the market) perhaps more than any other industry examined.
Why Montreal, Canada?
Montreal is the leading tourism destination in Canada, attracting more than 25 million Canadian, American and international visitors annually. It is the provincial capital of Ontario and the fourth most populous city in North America after New York City, Mexico City, and Los Angeles.
Montreal is the center of the Hub City which is the most populous metropolitan area in Canada. A global city, it is an international center of finance, business, arts, culture, and is recognized as one of the most cosmopolitan and multicultural cities in the world
The Global Lightweight Materials Market is expected to reach USD 196,299 million by 2022 from USD 144,613 million in 2015, with a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period, 2016‐2022. They are useful in various technological applications such as fabrication of microelectronic circuits, sensors, piezoelectric devices, fuel cells, coatings for the passivation of surfaces against corrosion, and as catalysts.
U.S. R&D spending on chemicals and advanced materials was USD 12 billion in 2014. Overall global R&D was slightly higher 4.7% rate to USD 45 billion in 2014.
The biomaterials market was valued USD 70.90 billion in 2016 and is anticipated to reach USD 149.17 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 16.0%. In the coming years, the market is expected to witness the highest growth in the Asia-Pacific region.
3D Printing Materials Market is expected to reach USD 1,871 million from USD 578 million by 2022, supported by a CAGR of 18.3%. Polymers are the most widely used material in the 3D printing material market.
Product Segment Analysis
Metal alloys segment is predicted to exhibit a remarkable growth rate among all types, followed by composites and polymers segment. The global market for water-soluble polymers was valued at around USD 35.7 billion in 2016. This market will grow from nearly USD 49.6 billion by 2022 from USD 37.4 billion in 2017 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% for the period of 2017-2022.
The significance of carbon-based nanomaterials has increased due to its unique combinations of chemical & physical properties, which involve electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, high mechanical strength, and optical properties.
Regional Segment Analysis
Asia-Pacific is projected to register significant growth as compared to the saturated markets of North America and Europe.
