THIS NANOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH REVIEW PROVIDES:
- Overview of the market for nanoparticles in the life sciences on a global basis including descriiption of leading and emerging drug products, major players in nanoparticle drug delivery field and methods of nanoparticle formation.
- Overview of global markets for nanocomposites, nanoparticles, nanoclays and nanotubes including information on types of nanocomposites, their properties and applications.
- Overview of global markets and technologies for carbon nanotubes (CNTs) including information on history of nanotubes, properties of CNTs and applications of CNTs.
- The global market for nanostructured products used in water treatment was worth an estimated $1.4 billion in 2010 and will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.7% during the next 5 years to reach a value of $2.2 billion in 2015.
- The global market for quantum dots (QDs) was worth an estimated $67 million in 2010 and $103 million in 2011. This market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 59.3%, reaching $666 million by 2015, a tenfold increase.
- Global consumption of nanocomposites was an estimated 138,389 metric tons with a value of $920 million in 2011. By 2016, the market should amount to 333,043 metric tons and $2.4 billion, a five year CAGR of 19.2% in unit terms and 20.9% in value terms.
The global market for carbon nanotube grades—comprising commodity (MWNTs) and specialty single- walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), few-walled carbon nanotubes (FWNTs)—generated an estimated $100 million in revenues in 2009. This market is projected to grow over the next 5 years at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 58.9%, reaching more than $1 billion by 2014. The CNT commodity grade will provide by far the biggest technology push driven especially by polymer composites.
BCC estimates the global market for nanotechnology products at about $15.7 billion in 2010, growing to approximately $26.7 billion by 2015, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.1% from 2010 through 2015. This figure includes well-established commercial nanomaterials applications, such as nanoparticle-based sunscreen products and nanocatalyst thin films for catalytic converters, as well as new technologies, such as nano-thin film solar cells, nanolithographic tools, and nanoscale electronic memory.
Sales of nanofiber-based products are projected to continue growing at a very healthy rate during the next 5 years, driven by further penetration of nanofibers in the above sectors and by various newer, high-tech applications that are entering mainstream commercialization in other fields such as the consumer and medical/biological/ pharmaceutical sectors. The total market for nanofiber products is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.3% through 2015, and at a 37.2% CAGR from 2015 through 2020, reaching nearly $2.2 billion in total revenues by 2020.
