Wellesley, Mass—According to a new technical market research report, GLOBAL MEDICAL MARKETS FOR NANOSCALE MATERIALS AND DEVICES (HLC058A) from BCC Research, the global medical market for nanotechnology applications generated $1.7 billion in 2007. This is expected to increase to $1.9 billion in 2008 and $3.8 billion in 2013 for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.9%. Additionally, this market has the potential to reach $9.4 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 19.9%
The market is broken down into the categories of nanoparticles, other nanostructured materials and nanotools/nanodevices. Of these, the nanoparticles segment has the largest share of the market. Worth $1.6 billion in 2007, this segment should increase at a CAGR of 13.4% to reach $1.8 billion in 2008 and $3.4 billion in 2013. Nanoparticles could potentially see $7.9 billion in revenue in 2018 with a CAGR of 18.6%.
Other nanostructured materials represent the next largest, and fastest growing, segment. Nanostructured materials generated $36.5 million in 2007 and an estimated $45.1 million in 2008. This should increase to $304.7 million in 2013 for a CAGR of 46.5%. This segment has the potential to reach $1.1 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 29.4%.
Nanotools and nanodevices have the smallest share of the market, worth $30.5 million in 2007. This is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.8% to reach $34.2 million in 2008 and $77.6 million in 2013. There is a potential for this segment to generate $287.5 million in 2018 at a CAGR of 29.9%.
Pharmaceutical applications currently dominate the market, accounting for nearly 90% of revenue in 2007 and this trend is expected to continue through 2008. This segment is expected to decrease to less than 70% of the market by 2013 and potentially reach closer to 50% of the market by 2018. Nanotechnology applications for medical research and medical devices are both expected to significantly gain in market share, potentially reaching 20% each by 2018.
