Global Nanomaterials Market to Reach $10 Billion by 2012

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.

Key players in the nanomaterial space include AMAG Pharmaceuticals Inc., Advanced Nano Products Company Limited, Antaria Limited, Altair Nanotechnologies Inc., Apex NanoMaterials, ApNano Materials, Catalytic Materials, Dendritic Nanotechnologies Inc., eSpin Technologies Inc., Hyperion Catalysis International, ILJIN Nanotech Co Ltd., Integran Technologies Inc., Nanodynamics Inc., Nanoledge, Nanophase Technologies, Oxonica Plc., Shenzhen Nanotech Port Co Ltd., Sun Nanotech Company Limited and Xintek Inc.
