Market Analysis

The global Nanotechnology market was valued at $1,055.1 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $2,231.4 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2019 to 2025. Nanomaterials and nanotechnology are the study of nanoparticles and devices, which find their application across all the science fields such as chemical, bio-medical, mechanics, and material science among others. Nanotechnology market encompasses the production and application of physical, chemical, and biological systems and devices at scales ranging from individual atoms or molecules to around 100 nanometers.

Nanotechnology carries a significant impact, and serves as a revolutionary and beneficial technology across various industrial domains, including communication, medicine, transportation, agriculture, energy, materials & manufacturing, consumer products, and households. Emerging use cases and application is expected to be one of the key factors contributing towards the growth of nanotechnology market size. The U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative has estimated that around 20,000 researchers are working in the field of nanotechnology. For the UK, the Institute of Occupational Medicine has estimated that approximately 2,000 people are employed in new nanotechnology companies and universities where they may be potentially exposed to nanoparticles of 20.1%. The market size of amines is estimated to grow from USD 13.35 Billion in 2015 to USD 19.90 Billion by 2020.


Furthermore, various organizations globally are investing in nanotechnology market and its emerging applications. For instance, in 2018, Osaka University-led researchers, in a joint research project with The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, and Waseda University, constructed integrated gene logicchips called gene nanochips. Using integrated factors on the nanochips, these self-contained nanochips can switch genes on and off within a single chip, preventing unintended crosstalk. In addition, nanoscale sensors and devices may provide costeffective continuous monitoring of the structural integrity and performance of bridges, tunnels, rails, parking structures and pavements over time. Moreover, nanoscale sensors, communications devices, and other innovations enabled by nanoelectronics support an enhanced transportation infrastructure that can communicate with vehicle-based systems to help drivers maintain lane position, avoid collisions, adjust travel routes to avoid congestion, and improve drivers’ interfaces to onboard electronics. All these factors are expected to be major nanotechnology market trends globally.

Factors such as surge in adoption of nanotechnology in medical diagnosis & imaging and technological advancements in nanotech devices drive the growth of the global nanotechnology market. However, issues arising in the deployment of nanodevices in extreme conditions and high cost of the technology act as the major barriers, thereby hampering the nanotechnology market growth. On the contrary, increase in support and R&D funding from government organizations and emergence of self-powered nanotech devices are anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for the nanotechnology market forecast.

Scope and Importance

Electrical and electronics, pharmaceutical, and chemical products are the major application segments in North America market. Europe also held a significant market share in the nanomaterials market. Decrease in price of nanomaterials due to increase in mass production has led to robust growth of nanomaterials in these regions. Asia Pacific is expected to witness remarkable growth in the projected period. Increasing government funding and support, rising environmental consciousness, and rising demand for specialty materials is expected to boost the growth of nanomaterials market in the foreseeable period. Nanomaterials are regulated under REACH and CLP regulation in the European market while U.S FDA regulates nanomaterials for the American market. Nanoscale materials engineering will have an increasingly important impact on a number of sectors, including biotechnology, electronics, energy, and industrial products Nano-sized ceramic powder market is likely to grow with a healthy growth rate of about 10% per year in the next five years.. MWNT filled polymers are successful commercial products in automotive applications. Nanocomposites have found niche applications such as automotive (under the hood and exterior) and beverage packaging. More companies will enter the nanomaterials market .At the same time, there will be increasing number of business relations such as technology licensing and joint marketing to achieve faster commercialization of the new products. The research and development funding for nanotechnology and nanomaterials will continue to increase in this decade. The global market for the nanomaterial's in the year 2006 was around US $14,000, and the global investments are to be increased 50% more by the ending of 2019.
