Nanomaterials Market Segment Analysis – by Type

The nanoparticle segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 14.5% during the forecast period in the Nanomaterials Market. The thickness of nanomaterials is 100,000 times lesser than the thickness of paper. The materials which are manufactured in this small size are generally called engineered nanomaterials. Nanomaterials are available naturally and also designed by scientists commercially to be used in a range of applications. Nanoparticles are available widely in nature and their size is around 100nm in diameter. In nature, they can be produced by the combustion of food and vehicle exhaust. Commercially manufactured nanoparticles are metal oxides such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. They are used in cosmetics, textiles and paints because of their chemical reactivity and optical properties. Thus, several benefits associated with the use of nanoparticles are boosting the growth of the market and are expected to account for a significant share of the nanomaterials market.
