Nanomaterials Market Growth & Size 2022 - 2027:

The nanomaterials market was valued at US$ 55,016 million in 2022 and is anticipated to increase to US$ 57,610 million by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 19.87% in the next six years.   

Materials that comprise at least one exterior dimension in the size range of approximately 1 to 100 nanometers are known as nanomaterials. The rising investment in research and development, increasing popularity of nanoparticles in many application industries, and superior physicochemical properties of nanomaterials are all factors driving demand for nanomaterials in various end-user industries, according to prominent corporations. Nanomaterials are frequently added in modest amounts to increase the basic material's performance. However, market expansion may be hampered by factors such as strict environmental restrictions and the expensive cost of nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials are being used in paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, electronics and consumer goods, and personal care products. Nanomaterials is primarily a research and development industry. The majority of commercially available nanomaterials are in the early stages of their product life cycle. Industry firms and government organizations are investing heavily around the world to identify commercial applications for this diverse variety of nanomaterials. With government funding and assistance, several new and emerging applications for nanomaterials have been discovered throughout the years, including field emission displays, body armors, water purification, medicine delivery, biofuel cell, wind turbine blades, and others.

Nanomaterials Market Drivers and Restraints:

Over the projected period, the nanomaterials market is likely to be driven by excellent physiochemical characteristics and expanding use of nanomaterials in the electronics, healthcare, aerospace, and textiles industries. Due to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market for nanomaterials collapsed, resulting in a drop in the population's purchasing power. However, demand has risen in 2021, owing to the relaxation of limitations and financial packages provided by governments to stimulate economies, which have boosted consumer demand. Because of their antibacterial, antioxidant, and anticancer capabilities, nanomaterials are rapidly being employed in biomedical and imaging applications, implants, photothermal therapy, and drug delivery. Such medical applications are likely to lessen the influence of Covid-19 on growth.

Because of the vast range of applications, the market for nanomaterials is predicted to rise at a rapid pace, posing a significant danger of new entrants. Newmarket entrants would have to compete initially with established industry players with a well-established customer base. Backward or forward integration by enterprises operating in the parent market is also projected to pose a threat of new entrants.

Factors including the predicted increase in the number of people exposed to these nanoparticles, occupational exposure, and the expected evolution of possibly detrimental consequences in the coming years are expected to prompt the establishment of strict laws. As a result, the predicted tightening of rules relating to nanomaterials and nanotechnology is expected to constitute a future obstacle for business growth.

Recent Developments in the  Nanomaterials Market:

NanoComposix, a premium nanomaterials firm focused on solutions for assay development and diagnostics, has been acquired by Fortis Life Sciences on July 23rd, 2021. Nanomaterials from nanoComposix are employed in a variety of Life Sciences and industrial applications, including medicine delivery, diagnostics, and imaging.

Impact of COVID-19 on Nanomaterials Market:

The new coronavirus epidemic has spread over the world, posing a global threat and causing severe health concerns for millions of individuals. The pandemic's mounting obstacles have resulted in a decrease in cancer research initiatives. According to studies, cancer patients are more susceptible to coronavirus problems than the general population. As a result, numerous oncologists are altering their everyday cancer-care routines in order to combat the infection. As a result of the aforementioned limitations, the nanomaterials industry's expansion from healthcare applications has been declined.

However, most of the population is becoming aware of the novel possibilities presented by nanotechnology in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19 and other viral illnesses. Various industries are putting a lot of effort into developing nanomaterial-based solutions. Diagnostics, disinfectants, Nanocarrier systems, and personal protective equipment (PPE) are among them, as is a vaccination to improve humoral and cellular immune responses, all of which will drive demand for various types of nanomaterials for use against viral diseases in the future years.
