Key Market Trends

Healthcare Industry to Show Significant Growth

  • The healthcare and the biomedical sector is the largest initial market for nanosensors owing to the increasing requirement for rapid, compact, accurate, and portable diagnostic sensing systems. As Urgent Care Centers (UCC) and Retail Clinics Centers (RC) have become popular as the need for convenient care continues to grow because of the long waits seen by the Emergency Departments.
  • Additionally, with the increasing rates of patients who have diabetes, government bodies in various countries are investing in developments of diagnostics techniques. For instance, the Ministry of Health Labour and Welfare (MHLW) in Japan had granted national reimbursement for the FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system in August 2017. This stimulated nanosensors adoption in the healthcare sector.
  • According to IDF, China and India have the highest total numbers of people with diabetes (110 million and 69 million respectively), but not the highest prevalences, with China 78th in the world on around 10% prevalence and India 76th with around 9%.
  • Besides, even England has registered a rise in the number of diabetics over the past few years.
  • However, companies providing nanosensors in medical applications have to consider molecular characteristics, toxicity, possible secondary reactions releasing any toxic side products, leachants, and their effect when these material deteriorate. Regulatory factors affect the medical market, so companies providing products that do not require FDA clearance have a better chance to succeed in this market.
Nanosensors Market Trends

North America to Hold the Largest Market Share

  • The major factor driving the nanosensors market in North America is a growing demand for nanosensors in military and homeland security as they are used for the detection of radiations and biotoxins. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, North America had accounted for 41.33% of the global military expenditure in the year 2018, which was the largest share among all regions.
  • They also have benefited the military by helping in the development of advanced Warfield gear, such as lighter vehicles and self-repairing tents. With the increased defense budget of the region specifically the United States, the demand for nanomaterials and components is expected to increase.
  • In addition, cost-effective manufacturing due to the compactness of nanosensors is set to bring about a positive transition in the nanosensors market. Moreover, the increasing demand for smaller and faster portable diagnostic sensing systems are the major factors driving the growth of nanotechnology in biomedical and healthcare segment in North America. All these factors contribute to the increasing demand for nanosensors in North America.
