Nanofibers for Medical and Cosmetics Market Segment Analysis – By Product
Polyurethane is expected to lead the nanofibers for medical and cosmetics industry by product segment in 2020, due to widely used in wound dressings because of its oxygen permeability and good barrier properties. For the rest, polylactic acid nanofiber has excellent mechanical property, tensile strength, durability, which makes very useful for drug delivery and cosmetic surgeries. Polyurethane nanofibres are widely used in tissue engineering of elastic tissues such as tendon, vascular grafts, esophagus prosthesis, and ligament. Furthermore, polycaprolactone also used in medical applications like drug delivery, an adhesion barrier, root canal. Polycaprolactone has been approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use in human body as surgical suture, is a medical device used to hold body tissue together after surgery. Hence, nanofibers have enormous applications in medical sciences including artificial organs, medical prostheses and wound dressing, which augmenting the demand of polyurethane, polylactic acid, polycaprolactone nanofibers in medical and cosmetics market.
Nanofibers for Medical and Cosmetics Market Segment Analysis – By Technique
Melt blowing is expected to lead the nanofibers for medical and cosmetics market by technique segment in 2020, because melt blowing technique provides nonofibers as much viscosity as is required for microfiber formation. This process can be applied at high voltage, which helps to process small diameters nanofibers. Melt blowing technique permits the production of nanofibers with diameters in the size range 5–10 ?m. Melt blowing is a conventional fabrication method of micro- and nanofibers where a polymer melt is extruded through small nozzles surrounded by high speed blowing gas.
Nanofibers for Medical and Cosmetics Market Segment Analysis – By Application
Skin care products segment dominated the nanofibers for medical and cosmetics market in 2020 and are growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period, due to widely used in sunscreen creams, anti-aging creams, hair products (anti-hairloss and anti-hairgraying) facial masks, and toothpastes. Nanofibers helps to reduce the wrinkling of the skin, improve brightening, provide anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, skin healing, and a cleansing effect while slowing down the collagen depletion and elastin breakdown. Nanofibers have been mainly targeted to release compounds for therapy and cleansing. Cosmetic facial masks also contain brightening agents, vitamins, minerals, protein and herbal ingredients. Apart from this, nanofibers have been used in a wide range of medical application like tissue engineering, prosthetics, dental implant, bone replacements, cartilages, heart valves vascular grafts and also electrospinning technology. Hence, these all applications of nanofibers will be propel the demand of nanofibers for medical and cosmetics industry.
Nanofibers for Medical and Cosmetics Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
North America dominated the nanofibers for medical and cosmetics market in 2020 with share of 42%, due to rise in consumer disposable income along with improved living standards. Thus, According Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) in US market, skincare sales increased 5 % to $1.4 billion in the first quarter of 2019. Skincare was the leading category, accounting for about 39 % and hair care about 21% of the global market. Although ecommerce penetration has only increased slightly in recent years, the beauty and personal care online share is predicted to surge to 48% in the United States by 2023. Hence, increasing consumer awareness and demand for natural cosmetic products will be surge the demand of nanofiber for medical and cosmetics market. Moreover, increasing R&D investments by manufacturers in natural ingredient which is paraben-free ingredients and biotechnology have been the key factors responsible for driving the market for cosmetics.

Nanofibers for Medical and Cosmetics Market Challenges
Rising Concerns Towards Environment
Nanofibers have toxic effects on unicellular aquatic organisms and aquatic animals, such as fish and Daphnia, which will be cause of nano pollution. Nano pollution refers to waste that can end up in landfills and contaminate air and soils system. Nanoparticles in our environment may have more harmful effects for environment, human cells and DNA level. Nanofibers cause of nano pollution due to toxicity. With the growth of nanotechnology, there are certain negative impacts on environment in many ways, such as increased toxicological pollution on the environment due to the uncertain shape, size, and chemical compositions of some of the nanotechnology products or nanomaterials. Due to nanotechnology it is extremely difficult to detect the nanoparticles in air for environmental protection, which hampering the market growth of nanofibers for medical and cosmetics market.
