Global Nanotechnology Market to Reach $64.2 Billion in 2019; Nanodevices Segment Surging at 34% CAGR

January 29, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., January 29, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, Nanotechnology: A Realistic Market Assessment, the global market for nanotechnology is expected to grow to $64.2 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.8%.  Nanodevices, the fastest moving segment of the overall market, are anticipated to move at a tremendous 34% CAGR.

Nanotechnology — the creation and utilization of materials, devices, and systems through the manipulation of matter at scales of less than 100 nanometers — continues to have a broad and fundamental impact on nearly all sectors of the global economy, including the biomedical, electronics, energy, environmental, and pharmaceutical industries.

Nanomaterials, particularly nanoparticles and nanoscale thin films, dominated the nanotechnology market in 2013, accounting for 78.8% of the market. This segment is predicted to grow to $52.7 billion by 2019 and register a healthy 20.7% CAGR.

Meanwhile, the nanotools category, which is comprised of devices that are used to manipulate or measure nanoscale objects or substances, accounted for 21% of the 2013 nanotechnology market. This segment is expected to reach nearly $11.3 billion by 2019 to register a solid CAGR of 16.2%

However, the nanodevices category, which was valued at just $39 million in 2013, is projected to surge to $183.4 million in 2019. This growth will primarily be driven by increasing consumer demand for smaller and more powerful electronic devices.

"Increased R&D spending in both the private and public sectors is driving the development of commercial nanomaterials applications such as nanocatalyst thin films for catalytic converters, as well as new and emerging technologies such as nano-thin film solar cells, nanolithographic tools, and nanoscale electronic memory," said BCC Research nanotechnology analyst Andrew McWilliams. "Rising demand for miniaturization in electronics, as well as public health and environmental concerns are anticipated to shape significant growth in this market for the foreseeable future."
