Market Synopsis


Nanomaterials are structures at the nanometre-scale where at least one dimension is less than approximately 100 nanometers. Nanomaterials are generally classified as zero-dimensional, one-dimensional, two-dimensional, and three-dimensional nanomaterials. Nanoparticles are zero-dimensional nanomaterials, which can be amorphous or crystalline and exhibit various shapes and forms. One-dimensional nanomaterials are needle-like shaped and include nanotubes, nanorods, and nanowires. Two-dimensional nanomaterials exhibit plate-like shapes and include nanofilms, nanolayers, and nano-coatings. Two-dimensional nanoparticles can be made of various chemical compositions and can be integrated into a surrounding matrix material. Three-dimensional nanomaterials are bulk nanomaterials and are characterized by having three arbitrarily dimensions above 100 nm. They contain dispersions of nanoparticles, bundles of nanowires, and nanotubes. Nanomaterials exhibit various properties which include high strength, hardness, elasticity, electric conductivity, antimicrobial and self-cleaning, scratch-resistance, and chemical resistance, owing to which they are increasingly used in a wide range of applications. Some of the commercial applications of nanoscale materials are electronic products, medical devices, battery electrodes, surface treatments of fabrics, light-weighting of cars, trucks, airplanes, boats, and spacecraft; high-power rechargeable battery systems, nanostructured ceramic coatings, nanoparticles as catalysts, personal care products, and construction materials, among others.


The global nanomaterials market was valued at USD 16.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to register a robust CAGR of 20% during the forecast period of 2019–2024. The high demand for nanomaterials in the electronics industry is expected to be the prominent factor driving the global market growth during the forecast period. Nanomaterials such as nanowires, nanotubes, graphene, and cellulosic nanomaterials are used for producing various types of flexible electronics due to the high aspect ratio, prominent mobility, enhanced surface-to-volume ratio, and ability to integrate on non-conventional substrates of these nanomaterials. The flexible nanomaterials market is projected to witness significant growth during the review period, which is expected to consequently boost the demand for nanomaterials in the near future. Moreover, increasing R&D to develop innovative nanomaterials is further expected to propel global market growth.


However, the growing concerns over the impact of nanomaterials on human health and environment, and toxicity of wastes resulted from nanomaterials processing are factors expected to restrain the growth of the global market during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis


The global nanomaterials market has been studied with respect to five key regions—Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. North America held the largest share of the global market in 2018, owing to the rising demand for nanomaterials in the electronics and automotive industries. The advancements in the field of nanotechnology by the US owing to the strong government and private sector support have resulted in the development of new and innovative applications of nanomaterials. Moreover, the advancements in the medical sector in North America have led to the development of several nano-based products. Significant growth of the medical sector in the region is likely to boost the demand for nanomaterials and propel the growth of the regional market in the years to follow.


The European market accounted for the second-largest share of the global market and is projected to witness considerable growth during the review period. The declining prices of nanomaterials on account of its mass production in the region and increasing use of nanomaterials for water filtration applications is expected to drive the growth of the regional market in the coming years.


The market in the Asia-Pacific is projected to register the highest CAGR during the review period. This is mainly attributed to the continuous research and developmental and increasing investments in China and Japan for the development of nanomaterials.
