Report Overview

The global mesh nozzle plates market size was valued at USD 28.8 million in 2020 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% from 2021 to 2028. Growing adoption of additive manufacturing processes such as electroforming, demand for high precision products, and the wide range of applications of mesh nozzle plates are some of the key drivers of this market. The COVID-19 pandemic had a notable impact on the market for mesh nozzle plates as the pandemic fueled the demand for micro parts in essential medical devices such as nebulizers and ventilators.

In April 2020, Johnson Matthey Piezo Products supplied piezo-ceramic bending actuators, a vital ventilator component, to its customer, HOERBIGER Flow Control, as part of essential products shipment. However, the market was also negatively impacted by supply chain restrictions and a decrease in unit sales of the products. Exposed vulnerabilities in supply chains due to continuous lockdown and unexpected changes in the availability of raw materials have nullified the efforts of manufacturers to improve operations.

Electroplating and laser cutting have been popular choices for manufacturing mesh nozzle plates. However, with growing technological advancements and increased demand for micro-manufacturing, electroforming has emerged as a viable and cost-effective option. Mesh nozzle plates for microparts used in mesh nebulizers and humidifiers are being increasingly produced through electroforming and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.

Veco B.V. for instance offers a wide portfolio of electroformed products with micro holes as part of its precision products lineup. According to the company, electroforming as a type of additive manufacturing process offers several benefits such as support for large-volume production, high precision, and perfect process control.

The wide applicability of mesh nozzle plates is another key driver that impels market growth. This ranges from inkjet printers to fuel injectors and from mesh nebulizers to perfume diffusion, among others. Informatic Component Technology Limited, for example, is a UK-based company specializing in inkjet printhead components including inkjet nozzle plates. With up to 256 micro holes, the company’s nozzle plates create an array of over 19 million droplets of ink per second.

Material Type Insights

The metals and alloys segment dominated the market for mesh nozzle plates and accounted for the largest revenue share of 39.2% in 2020. This is owing to the high durability and usage of metallic nozzle plates in a variety of industries. Aroma Sense USA, for instance, offers a range of steel spray plates intended as replacements for Aroma Sense Prestige showerheads.

The engineered plastics segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate over the next few years. The key factors responsible for this growth include the cost-effectiveness of the material and increasing R&D by market players to diversify their portfolios. Micro base in Taiwan, for instance, markets a polyimide-based mesh for its nebulizer lineup, in addition to its other metallic mesh nozzle plates. The increased demand for cost-effective solutions is anticipated to boost the segment growth in the coming years.

Type of Manufacturing Insights

The others segment comprising electroplating and laser cutting dominated the mesh nozzle plate market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 53.9% in 2020. The key factor contributing to this share includes widespread usage of these procedures in varied applications from industrial, printing, medical, and agriculture, to disinfection, automotive, and other sectors.

The electroforming segment, on the other hand, is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period. This is due to the rising adoption of electroforming techniques by the key players. Veco, headquartered in the Netherlands, is especially known for its chemical etching, electroforming, and laser material processing technologies.

Electroforming is a type of additive manufacturing process used for producing high-precision metal parts. The process consists of creating metal parts atom by atom with high accuracy and aspect ratios. According to AMFG, a workflow software company, North America and Europe region lead the additive manufacturing market, due to the presence of key companies involved in developing, adopting, or investing in additive manufacturing. Supportive government initiatives such as the launch of the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII), now rebranded as America Makes, helped boost the growth of the market for mesh nozzle plates in the U.S.

Application Insights

The other’s segment comprising agricultural and industrial applications accounted for the largest revenue share of 22.5% in 2020. The cosmetics segment held the second-largest share owing to the increasing use of mesh nozzle plates in atomizers including humidifiers, diffusers, and perfumes, that require aerosolization of liquid into a fine mist.

Global mesh nozzle plates market share, by application, 2020 (%)

The medical segment is anticipated to record the highest growth rate in the coming years. This is due to an increase in the R&D of medical devices having micro-mesh parts. For example, vibration micro-mesh plates are expected to find wide applications in mesh nebulizers as the usage of mesh nebulizers for high-cost drugs and niche therapy increases over time. This is owing to the challenges presented by the delivery of drugs to mechanically ventilated patients. There is also an increased need for optimizing drug and device-related factors for effective drug delivery in ventilated patients.

Regional Insights

Europe dominated the market for mesh nozzle plates and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.0% in 2020.  The growth can be attributed to the presence of key players such as temicon GmbH, in the region and the high adoption of additive manufacturing technologies for the production of micro and macro components having large-scale industrial, cosmetic, and healthcare applications. temicon GmbH, is a German company, specializing in manufacturing metal micro parts such as nozzle plates for the nebulization of liquids.

In the Asia Pacific, the market for mesh nozzle plates is estimated to grow at a lucrative rate owing to the presence of a large number of manufacturers, suppliers, and traders offering cost-effective mesh nozzle plates in bulk quantities in this region. Companies are also investing in product development and strengthening their distribution partnerships. This is expected to contribute to the regional growth over the forecast period.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights
