Driver & Restraints

Increasing Demand for Titanium Nanoparticles -

Titanium dioxide nanomaterials are the most widely used white pigment materials in the paints and coatings industry, owing to their UV absorption and photocatalytic sterilizing properties. They are majorly used in the coatings industry because they efficiently scatter visible light, and thereby, impart whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into coatings. Titanium dioxide nanomaterial products are sometimes coated with silica and alumina and doped with another metal for specific applications in the coatings industry. An article published by the journal Nanoparticles in February 2023, reported the broad applications of titania in technology and medicine, from dye-sensitized solar cells, photodynamic therapy, to water remediation. Moreover, these nanoparticles reveal excellent photochemical properties and high biocompatibility. Also, the TiO2 particles are quite cheap and accessible components. Thus, such instances are contributing to the growth of the studied market.

Increasing Use of Nanotechnology in Aerospace

The aerospace industry requires components made of materials capable of meeting requirements such as lightness, excellent thermal resistance, high durability, and capable of resisting electromagnetic interference (EMI). Few materials manage to meet all these characteristics. The addition of filler into the polymer matrix confers the great majority of properties that nanocomposites show or improve the inherent properties of the matrix. For this reason, a good dispersion of nanoparticles into the polymer matrix is necessary to obtain adequate results and avoid local stress concentrations, i.e., agglomeration, which eventually results in product failure. Homogeneous dispersion is vital for the optimum performance of a nanocomposite. 

Growing Adoption of Nanotechnology in Disease Diagnosis and Cancer Diagnosis 

An article, titled, “Recent Advances in Nanomaterials-Based Targeted Drug Delivery for Preclinical Cancer Diagnosis and Therapeutics” published in the journal June 2023, reported that a wide range of nanocarriers, such as dendrimers, micelles, PEGylated liposomes, and polymeric nanoparticles are used to facilitate the efficient transport of anti-cancer drugs at the target tumor site. Also, real-time labeling and monitoring of cancer cells using quantum dots is essential for determining the level of therapy needed for treatment. The drug is targeted to the tumor site either by passive or active means. Thus, such instances are driving the growth of the studied market over the forecast period.


High Cost of Technology

Recent research published by American scientists in 2021, reported that one milligram of gold nanoparticles costs about USD 80, and for a gram of gold nanoparticles, it is around USD 80,000. Nanotechnology is an expensive area of research and only developed nations have the resources to invest in it. Thus, the high cost may slow down the growth of the studied market. COVID-19 and Russian War Impact on Nanotechnology Market  

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the growth of the nanotechnology market.

For instance, an article titled, “Nanotechnology for the Management of COVID-19 during the Pandemic and in the post-pandemic Era” published in June 2022, reported that during the initial time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing studies related to nanotechnology were suspended and the studied market’s growth was impacted initially. However, post-pandemic it was observed that nanotechnology is likely to contribute to the management of COVID-19-related issues, including the multiple health problems of long-term COVID’ that develop more than three months after the acute infection Also the application of nanotechnology is important in terms of global preparation for future viral pandemics. Also, the current research is establishing the role of nanotechnology is also applied to the detection of SARS-CoV-2, vaccine development, and the development of antiviral medicines. Thus, such instances are contributing to the growth of the studied market.

Segmentation Analysis:

The Nanomaterials Segment is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period

Nanomaterials can be defined as materials possessing, at minimum, one external dimension measuring 1-100nm. The definition given by the European Commission states that the particle size of at least half of the particles in the number size distribution must measure 100nm or below. Furthermore, recent studies and research are expected to contribute to the growth of the studied segment. For instance, in September 2022, in a recent study, researchers from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and other universities in China reported that brain stimulation combined with a nose spray containing nanoparticles can improve recovery after ischemic stroke in an animal model. The nasal spray is a non-invasive method for delivering magnetic nanoparticles into the brain that the study finds can increase the benefits of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).  Thus, such studies are leading to better treatment thereby contributing to the growth of this segment.

Aero scope Nanotechnology Segment is Expected to Witness High Growth Over the Forecast Period

Aerospace nanotechnology comprises three types of nanomaterial, namely, polymer nanocomposites, anti-corrosion coatings, and nanostructured metals. Nanostructured materials are also used in the development of traditional energetic materials used in ammunition. The development of carbon nanotube composites in the manufacturing of airframes is expected to be one of the major driving factors impacting the growth of nanotechnology in aerospace over the forecast period.

North America Region is Expected to Witness Significant growth Over the Forecast Period

North America accounted for a significant market share of over 35% in 2021 and dominated the global nanotechnology market. The region is home to the world's largest population and there is a huge demand for various electronics, medical equipment, textiles, and automotive products that have led to a higher demand for nanomaterials in the manufacturing of these products. Furthermore, technological developments are fueling the growth of the studied market. For instance, in June 2021, Danaher completed the acquisition of Precision NanoSystems. Precision NanoSystems was engaged in manufacturing technological solutions for genetic drugs.
