Global market for nanofiltration membranes to reach $445.1 million by 2019

July 17, 2014

With the first marketable products in the 1990s, research and development (R&D) activity related to nanofiltration membranes has been growing at a healthy rate in parallel with its steadily expanding global market. Nanofiltration membranes represent a very small share of the global membrane market but they are growing at a faster rate compared to other membrane technologies.

The increased market penetration of these products can be attributed to different factors, including a rising demand for potable water and reduced freshwater sources, environmental restrictions on industrial and municipal wastewater discharges, and lower operating costs compared to, for example, reverse osmosis.

BCC Research provides an in-depth analysis of the global market for nanofiltration membranes through its report, Global Markets and Technologies for Nanofiltration. According to the report, this market increased from $172.8 million in 2012 to $190.2 million in 2013. This is expected to reach $215.6 million by the end of 2014 and $445.1 million by 2019, recording a CAGR of 15.6% during 2014 to 2019.

Global Markets For Nanomagnetic Materials And Devices To Reach $9 Billion By 2017

October 7, 2013

Although nanomagnetics has not received nearly the attention as other areas of nanotechnology, such as nanobiotechnology or nanoelectronics, the underlying technology is every bit as progressive, and the potential market impact is astonishingly profound. Nanomagnetic systems are enabling a variety of commercial uses, from data storage technology and nonvolatile memory to industrial sensors and cancer treatment. Current and emerging applications of nanomagnetic materials and devices that directly impact biotechnology, industrial products, and information storage will drive growth in this market over the near term.

BCC Research provides an in-depth analysis of the global markets for nanomagnetic materials and devices through its report Nanomagnetics: Materials, Devices and Markets. According to the report, this market was estimated at $7.2 billion in 2011 and $7.3 billion in 2012. BCC Research projects the market to grow to $9 billion by 2017, and register a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2012 to 2017.

This study is a valuable resource for those who need to understand the technological and market impact of magnetic materials and devices based on nanotechnology. It will also benefit decision makers in companies or institutions that manufacture, process, or sell magnetic nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, microspheres, ferrofluids, thin films, and bulk materials; develop or fabricate devices based on nanomagnetic materials such as GMR heads, hard disks, MRAM, or biosensors; provide consulting, public relations, or other services to the nanotechnology community; are planning to make investments or acquisitions in the nanotech space; produce or market conventional magnetic materials and devices; and develop competing technologies or products in areas in which nanomagnetic materials and devices will have (or are already having) an impact.


Global market for nanomagnetic materials and devices will top $9 billion by 2017

May 1, 2013

According to BCC Research, the global market for nanomagnetic materials and devices is currently $7.3 billion and will top $9 billion by 2017. Therefore, certain types of nanomagnetic materials already represent a mature market.

The data storage product sector of the nanomagnetics market generated nearly $6.9 billion in wholesale-level sales in 2012 and is expected to reach nearly $8.4 billion in 2017. Products like MRAMS have been commercialized since the 2004 BCC report and are poised for expanding growth in the number of shipments. Overall growth in MRAM sales will be lower due to steadily reduced per-unit prices.

The fastest-growing markets will be for sensors, including biosensors, bioassay products, and giant magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors. Sales topped $53 million in 2012 and should grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.3% to reach $108 million by 2017.

These are followed by a group of “other” markets, including nanocrystalline soft magnetic cores, magnetic fluids, catalysts and environmental remediation products. Together they represent a $97 million market, which is forecast to grow to a combined $209 million by 2017.

There are diverse companies involved in the area of nanomagnetics, ranging from biotechnology startups to major global electronics companies. Some of these firms are primarily materials companies, acting as suppliers of nanomagnetic material products, such as magnetic fluids, magnetic microspheres, or nanocrystalline magnetic alloys. Some companies in the business are captive producers of nanomaterials for higher value-added end products, such as hard disks or GMR sensors. A final group of companies incorporate nanomagnetic materials from outside suppliers into both mundane and up-and-coming products, from loudspeakers to biochips.

It is worth noting that there is not so much a nanomagnetics industry as there are a number of industries or market segments that are affected by nanomagnetics technology and materials. These market segments include industrial products, information storage devices, and biotechnology. Companies involved in each of these areas are developing and using nanomagnetics technology and products.

BCC Research has identified approximately 50 companies that are active in developing and using nanomagnetics-related products and technology.

Industrial Processing Continues to Dominate Nanotechnology Usage

March 6, 2013

Nanotechnology is increasingly impacting the U.S. and world energy balance, both on the supply and demand sides. On the supply side, nanotechnology is being used to optimize production from existing energy sources (e.g., crude petroleum) and to exploit new sources such as heavy oil, liquefied coal, and solar energy (including using solar energy to produce hydrogen). Nanotechnology is also improving and opening new possibilities for the transmission and storage of energy, especially electricity and possibly hydrogen in the future. On the supply side, nanotechnologies have the potential to reduce energy consumption by making it possible to manufacture lighter and/or more energy-efficient cards and appliances. Nanotechnologies also can be used to improve energy efficiency in buildings (10% of the market by 2017).

Industrial processing was the largest user of nanotechnologies in 2011 with 46.1% of the total market. Refining was the second-largest application segment in 2011 with 17.6% of the market.  Other major application segments in 2011 included ethanol production with 16.4% of the market and energy-saving consumer products (mainly detergents) with 11.8%.

Solid nanoparticles and nanostructured monolithics are expected to gain significant market share over the next five years, reaching 7.4% and 2.1%, respectively, by 2017. Nanosensors’ market share is expected to increase slightly by 2017, and hollow nanoparticles should achieve their first commercial sales (other than nanoparticles used in nanocomposites).
