Nanomaterials of all types are poised to register robust growth driven by
growing interest from healthcare and electronics sectors. Oxides and metals
are expected to capture a major share of global NanoMaterial revenues in the
short-term. Emerging NanoMaterials such as single-wall nanotubes, and dendrimers
are forecast to contribute significantly to market growth. In terms of end-use
segments, healthcare and electronics dominate worldwide revenues for NanoMaterials.
Also, exceptional growth is anticipated from end-use markets such as construction.
Commercial usage of NanoMaterials is limited to few applications such as sunscreen
lotions, wafer polishing, and treatment of textiles.
United States emerged as the largest regional market with an estimated US$1.12
billion revenues in 2008, as stated by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Western
Europe is the second largest regional market accounting for over 30% of global
revenues. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing market, with revenues
poised to increase at a compounded annual rate of 38.7% over the analysis period
2002-2015. Worldwide NanoMaterial oxide revenues are forecast to reach US$6
billion in 2013. Revenues for nano-metals are projected to approach US$3 billion
by 2015. Carbon Nanotubes is another billion-dollar segment expected to post
double-digit growth through 2015. Electronics is the largest end-use market
for NanoMaterials while healthcare is the most promising.
