Nanocomposites Market | 2020 Global Industry Size, Share, Growth, Trends, 10 Com

Posted by Rishab Gupta on January 22nd, 2020

Nanocomposites are materials that incorporate nanosized particles dispersed in a matrix into a matrix of standard material, such as polymer/carbon nanotube or Si/Ge nanocomposites to optimize the performance of the traditional materials. The structure is a matrix-filler combination, where the filler-like particles, fibers, or fragments are surrounded and bound together as discrete units by the matrix.

The different types of matrix are polymer matrix nanocomposites+ (PMNC), metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNC), and ceramic matrix nanocomposites (CMNC). The majorly used nanoparticles are carbon nanofibers (CNFs), carbon nanotubes [multiwall (MWNTs), small-diameter (SDNTs), and single-wall (SWNTs)], nano-silica (N-silica), nano-aluminum oxide (Al2O3), nano titanium oxide (TiO2), and montmorillonite organoclays (MMT).

Nanocomposites Market Summary

Nanocomposites Market is projected to be valued at over USD 9 Billion by the end of 2025 and is estimated to register a CAGR of around 15.5% during the forecast period. The global demand-side drivers for the nanocomposites market are growing popularity of nanocomposite materials in the food packaging applications and increasing use of lightweight and high strength components in automobile manufacturing. Additionally, the increasing demand for nanocomposites in various biomedical applications such as gene therapy, hip implants, artificial lenses, wound healing, catheters, tissue engineering, large diameter vascular grafts, implantation of medical devices, and artificial organs is expected to propel the market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of the product in the paints & coatings industry for anticorrosion barrier coatings, drug delivery systems, and antibacterial coatings, among others is expected to create immense growth opportunities for the players operating in the market during the assessment period.

Carbon nanotube is one of the most promising materials in nanocomposites on account of its superior properties such as rigidity, elasticity, strength, electric conductivity, and field emission. Nanocomposites exhibit structural, flame resistance, and thermal properties without significant loss in impact or clarity owing to which they are widely used in various applications in the packaging, aerospace, automotive, and medical industries.

Global Nanocomposites Market was valued at over USD 4 billion in 2019 and is projected to register a CAGR of around 15.5% during the forecast period, 2019–2025.
