The production of horizontally aligned carbon nanotubes offers a rapid means of realizing a myriad of self-assembled near-atom-scale technologies - from novel photonic crystals to nanoscale transistors. The ability to reproducibly align anisotropic nanostructures has huge technological value. Here we review the present state-of-the-art in horizontal carbon nanotube alignment. For both $\textit{in}$ and $\textit{ex situ}$ approaches, we quantitatively assess the reported linear packing densities alongside the degree of alignment possible for each of these core methodologies.
