Nanotechnology Market Dynamics

Rising investment for the development of nanotechnology-based products

The market is driven by the rising demand for nanotechnology in medical application & imaging and rising investment for the development of nanotechnology-based products have propelled the demand. As per the European Commission estimation, the nanotechnology development sector exceeds US$ 1 trillion and is growing investment at a rapid pace around the globe.

The EU commission invested approximately US$ 67 billion in nanotechnology-related research between 2000 to 2015. Further increase in nanotechnology-based research and development attracted huge investment in nanotechnology. For instance, National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) has received around US$ 27 billion for the extensive research and development of nanotechnology in 2019.

Further Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made an investment of around US$ 350 million in 2018 for the state-of-the-art nanoscale research centre named “MIT.nano. Also, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures (SAEV) has invested around US$ 10 million in NanoMech, a leading company in nanomanufacturing in 2016.

Advancement in technology for various chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes etc to provide specific targeted treatment is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period

With growing technological advancement, the Application of diseases using nanotechnology is much easier and can be treated at early stages. For instance, as per a new study published by the American Chemical Society on 2nd October 2020 Charged nanoscale particles with metal-organic frameworks are used for generating free radicals using X-rays within tumour tissue to kill cancer cells directly. Furthermore, the same frameworks can be used to activate the immune response against tumour cells and deliver immune signalling molecules known as PAMPs.

Stringent Government Policies Regarding Approval of Treatment Methods is hampering the Market Growth

The medical devices and equipment developed for the treatment of renal disorders have to go through strict and long approval procedures which might be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Similarly, the drugs are required to go through various clinical trials before being approved for the market. The stringent government policies for the approval of treatment methods for renal disorders is estimated to become a restraining factor for the market growth.
