Market Synopsis


Global Metal Nanoparticle Market is projected to register an approximate CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period. Metal nanoparticles are engineered materials with at least one dimension in size range of 10–100nm.These particles on account of their exceptional properties such as high aspect ratio and uniform size are used in a wide spectrum of applications such as catalysis, medical, and energy storage. For instance, cobalt nanoparticles are used as a catalyst in the oxidation reaction of cyclohexane to synthesize adipic acid, which is then used to produce nylon 6, 6 polymer. Various metal nanoparticles such as silver, titanium, gold, platinum, and copper have shown potential therapeutic effects. Thus, find a wide variety of applications in drug delivery, diagnosis, and other medical arenas. This is likely to drive the global market in the pharmaceutical sector. For instance, silver and gold nanoparticles are effective in inhibiting growth of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, thus are extensively used as a novel antibiotic agent. In addition, on account of their high conductivity and better physical-chemical stability, metal nanoparticles are used in a number of electronic & electrical applications such as solar cells, in film transistors, and supercapacitors, thereby fueling the market growth globally. Furthermore, the increasing use of metal nanoparticles in various industrial and domestic applications coupled with the rising advancements in nanotechnology is further creating lucrative opportunities for players operating in the global metal nanoparticles. However, despite innumerable benefits, the high cost of metal nanoparticles is likely to limit the growth worldwide. Also, the growing awareness related to the toxicity of certain nanoparticles such as lead, mercury, and tin among the consumers is further posing a threat to the global market growth.
