Report : Metal Nanoparticle Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Metal (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Iron, Titanium, and Others) and End-Use Industry (Pharmaceutical and Healthcare, Electrical and Electronics, Chemicals, Personal Care and Cosmetics, and Others)
The scope of our recent study on the “Metal Nanoparticle Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis - by Metal (Gold, Silver, Iron, Platinum, Titanium, and Others) and End-Use Industry (Pharmaceutical and Healthcare, Electrical and Electronics, Chemical, Personal Care and Cosmetics, and Others),” includes the factors fueling the market growth, revenue estimation and forecast, and market share analysis, along with the identification of significant market players and their key developments.
The metal nanoparticle market was valued at US$ 25,373.92 in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 81,567.38 by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% from 2021 to 2028. Metal nanoparticles are basically engineered materials and their size ranges from 10 to 100nm. Metal Nanoparticles have exceptional properties such as high aspect ratio and uniform size. They are used in a wide spectrum of applications, such as catalysis, medical, and energy storage.
Based on end-use industry, the global metal nanoparticles market is segmented into pharmaceutical and healthcare, electrical and electronics, chemicals, personal care and cosmetics, and others. The pharmaceuticals and healthcare segment held the largest market share in 2020. Metal nanoparticles have various applications in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector such as their use as therapeutic agents as well as in drug delivery, bioimaging, and cancer treatment and diagnostics. Many countries across the world are researching on metal nanoparticles that can be applied for cancer treatment. Along with this, the use of gold nanoparticles in the COVID-19 antibodies test kits is driving the demand for metal nanoparticles in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector.
The global metal nanoparticle market is segmented into five main regions-North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). In 2020, North America accounted for the largest share in the market. The increase in the development of the pharmaceutical and the healthcare sectors and a rise in demand for sustainable energy resources have increased the demand for metal nanoparticles in North America. Owing to the presence of developed countries, such as the US and Canada, and conducive government support for R&D activities, countries in the region explore and produce innovative products. Furthermore, the presence of domestic and international metal nanoparticles companies in the region created lucrative opportunities for the metal nanoparticle market in the region.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Metal Nanoparticle Market
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the metal nanoparticles market. The outbreak has distorted operational efficiency and disrupted the value chains due to the sudden shutdown of national and international boundaries, which has created revenue loss and damage. The disruptions in the production and supply chain have had a negative impact on the metal nanoparticles market. The implementation of lockdown in various countries along with travel restrictions has lessened the global supply of products along with a reduced logistic operation. Research has been ongoing for the utilization of gold nanoparticles for COVID-19 testing kits, which will provide the results in minutes. In the US, a group of researchers at the University of Maryland claimed that they have developed a diagnostic test that can detect the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 within 10 minutes and the results will be visible with naked eyes. Along with this, Sugentech, Inc. (a company in Republic of Korea) developed SGTi-flex COVID-19 IgM/IgG test kit, which is a gold nanoparticle-based immunochromatographic test kit that determines COVID-19’s IgM and IgG antibodies. The test helps in determining the antibodies that are specific proteins, which are developed in response to the infection. Thus, an increased usage of gold nanoparticles in the healthcare sector is having a positive impact on the metal nanoparticles market.
