Recent developments in nanotechnology have fueled the demand for nanochemicals or nanoparticles. Nanochemicals are class of compounds whose particle size ranges between 1-100 nanometers and they exhibit special physical and chemical characteristics. Nanochemicals can be of different type viz., ceramic materials, metallic nanochemicals and polymer based nanomaterials. However two majorly used nano forms are of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These chemicals have been increasingly used in semiconductor, cosmetics, foods, drugs & textiles. It is used as a colorant in food industry, whereas it is used as an anti-bacterial agent for garments.
The last decade has seen active participation from different stakeholders which have led to the development of this industry. Companies have increased their investments for nanotechnology. Significant investments have seeped in from government organizations in the form of subsidies to support the growth of this industry. But, the growth of nanochemicals had seen a slowdown of late due to stringent regulations.
EPA, the regulatory body have recently expressed concerns over the use of industrial nanomaterials and have asked different companies to notify the nanochemicals used across multiple industries. Environmentalists were worried over its possible toxic composition which may pose health risks for consumers in food and cosmetic industry. Health experts believe that nanochemicals are extremely smaller in size and may penetrate easily through human cells and skins. Some nanochemicals are believed to cause precancerous lesions. Due to such health risks, the use of nanochemicals in food and consumer products has been restricted to certain extent.
North America continues to spearhead the nanotechnology revolution and is a major market for nanochemicals followed by Europe and Asia- Pacific region. The development of nanoparticles or nanochemicals is highly dependent on regulations due to the potential health & environment risks involved in these compounds.
This study aims at estimating the global market size of Nanochemicals for 2014 and to project the expected demand/market size of the same by 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global nanochemicals market. It also analyses the key market drivers, restraints, and key issues in the market. The market is segmented for important regions, such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. We have used various secondary sources, such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases to identify and collect useful information for this study. The primary sources, experts from related industries and suppliers, have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of this market.
Competitive scenarios of the major players in the nanochemicals market have been discussed in detail. We have also profiled leading players of this industry, such as Advanced Nano Products, Inc, Akzo Nobel, BASF, DuPont Agriculture, Dow Agro Sciences, Graphene NanoChem Plc, Sea Spray Aerosol, Inc, and Nano Chemical Systems.
