The metal nanoparticles market will grow from USD 12.35 Billion in 2017 to USD 25.26 Billion by 2022, at an estimated CAGR of 15.4%.
Increase in application areas of metal nanoparticles, rise in demand for gold nanoparticles in the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry, and supportive government initiatives & funding are boosting the growth of the metal nanoparticles market.
The pharmaceutical & healthcare segment is projected to hold the largest share and dominate the market from 2017 to 2022. The growth in adoption of metal nanoparticles in electrical & electronics industry plays a key role in changing the market; this segment is projected to grow at the second-highest rate during the forecast period.
The segmentation for this report is based on metal, end-use industry, synthesis process, and region. The pharmaceutical & healthcare segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in the metal nanoparticles market during the forecast period. There are various metal nanoparticles used in image-guided in-vivo therapies as well as in in-vitro techniques in order to detect changes in organs and tissues, and to diagnose chronic diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's. The pharmaceutical & healthcare industry requires these metal nanoparticles for target specificity in the diagnosis of diseases.
Metal nanoparticles are used in pharmaceutical & healthcare, electrical & electronics, catalyst, personal care & cosmetics, and other industries (water treatment, textile, aerospace, paints, and glass). The global market, in terms of end-use industry, was dominated by the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry in 2016. The rise in demand for innovative drugs and target-specific diagnosis & therapeutics is leading to the introduction of new & advanced materials, thereby giving rise to an increased demand for metal nanoparticles.
The silver nanoparticles segment dominated the market in 2016, in terms of volume, as a result of their antimicrobial efficacy against viruses, bacteria, and other eukaryotic microorganisms, and wide application areas in electrical & electronics and healthcare industries. The gold nanoparticles segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period; this is attributable to their unique optical properties, rich surface chemistry, and biocompatibility.
North America dominated the market for metal nanoparticles in 2016, in terms of value. The US contributes a major share in the North American market. Continued investments in support of the National Nanotechnology Initiative and growth of the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry, make this market attractive for industry participants.
In 2017, Asia Pacific is estimated as the largest consumer of metal nanoparticles, with China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Australia being the major markets. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market for metal nanoparticles from 2017 to 2022. The low manufacturing cost, supported by government incentives, has encouraged electronic-producing companies in different regions to establish their plants in the countries of Asia Pacific. This, in turn, creates growth prospects for metal nanoparticles in Asia Pacific.
