Nanomagnetics: Materials, Devices and Markets

  • Published: April 2013
  • |
  • Report Code: NAN033B

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

The global market for nanomagnetic materials and devices was valued at $7.2 billion in 2011 and $7.3 billion in 2012.  This market is expected to top $9 billion by 2017, a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4%.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the market for nanomagnetic materials and devices in three major market segments: biotechnology, industrial products, and information storage.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2011 and 2012, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2017.
  • Discussion of materials and technology, including products based on particles or dispersions, nanoscale thin films, and bulk nanostructured materials.
  • Industry data, technical background information, and a patent analysis.
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players.

REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

In 2007, the Nobel Prize Committee stated that, “Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) can be considered one of the first real applications of the promising field of nanotechnology.”  Nanomagnetic materials and products in general and GMR in particular still represent the most mature and widely used examples of nanotechnology and nanoscale materials.  With this promise in mind, the primary objective of this report is twofold: to identify current, emerging and futuristic applications for nanomagnetic materials and devices, and to evaluate actual and potential markets by application and type. 

REASONS FOR DOING THE REPORT

The properties of nanostructured magnetic materials and devices are extraordinarily different from those of conventional magnetic systems.  Esoteric technical terms such as exchange coupling, giant magnetoresistance, single-domain behavior, superparamagnetism and tunneling magnetoresistance all describe some of the unique characteristics and behavior obtainable from nanomagnetic particles, films and bulk materials.  

Interesting science is nice, certainly, but practical, revenue-generating applications are even better.  It turns out that the properties of nanomagnetic systems are enabling a variety of actual and potential commercial uses, from data storage technology and nonvolatile memory to industrial sensors and cancer treatment.

Some nanomagnetic products have been on the market for years or even decades, while others have yet to reach commercialization.  The gamut of these nanomagnetic materials and devices is covered in this report, including products based on particles or dispersions, nanoscale thin films and bulk nanostructured materials.  

Current and future applications of nanomagnetic materials and devices directly impact biotechnology, industrial products and information storage.  Some products, especially in the area of magnetic storage media, rely exclusively on nanomagnetic materials.  Other products could be revolutionized by recent nanomagnetic material and processing developments. 

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

This report greatly expands and updates BCC Research’s 2004 report on nanomagnetics, materials and devices, including forecasted market growth and applications though 2017 in the following technology and applications:

  • Sensors:
    • Biosensors and bioassays.
    • Giant magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors.
  • Separation.
  • Imaging.
  • Data Storage:
    • Magnetic tapes.
    • Hard disks.
    • Recording heads.
    • Magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM).
  • Medical and genetics
  • Others:
    • Nanocrystalline soft magnetic cores.
    • Magnetic fluid seals.
    • Thermal transfer.
    • Catalysts.
    • Environmental remediation.

METHODOLOGY

The report identifies current, emerging and experimental applications and evaluates actual and potential markets by application and type.  

Throughout the report, past market data is expressed in current dollars, and estimates and projections are in constant 2012 dollars.  Historic 2011 markets and the projected markets for 2012 and 2017 are provided.  Most market summaries are based on a consensus scenario.  Pessimistic, consensus and optimistic market scenarios characterize several developmental markets.  Totals are rounded to the nearest million dollars.   When appropriate, information from previously published sources is identified to allow a more detailed examination by clients.

The study also includes a discussion on both public and private companies active in research and/or development, to include company profiles, applicable patents and geographical trends and forecasts.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This study is a valuable resource for those who need to understand the technological and market impact of magnetic materials and devices based on nanotechnology, and for decision makers in companies or institutions that:

    • Biomedical imaging agents.
    • Biosensors or bioassays.
    • Bioseparations media or equipment.
    • Data, video and audio storage products.
    • Drug delivery and disease treatment technologies.
    • Industrial seals.
    • Industrial sensors.
    • Nonvolatile memory.
    • Soft magnetic cores.
