Rising demand for engineered chemicals in several end-use industries have led to demand for nanochemicals. Nanochemicals are specially formulated chemicals using nanotechnology on the conventional chemical building blocks such as ethane, propane and butanes. The nanoscale chemicals exhibit unique properties such as self catalysis, anti-corrosion which give these chemicals added advantage over the conventional chemicals. These chemicals may also lead to innovative ways to carry out chemical reactions in much reduced times as their conventional counterparts. Nanochemical market may be segmented on the basis of product type namely metal finishing chemicals, electronic chemicals, cleaners, industrial & specialty gases, engineering plastics, moulding powder, bio-chemicals, rubber chemicals and wet chemicals. Key application segments of nanochemicals include construction chemicals, mining chemicals, semiconductors & IC process chemicals, pesticides, rubber chemicals, printing ink, ceramic industry, plastic additives, textiles, water treatment & management and specialty polymers.
Rising demand of chemical-based products having multiple phases which enhances chemical reactions with maximum product yield has been the major factor driving the market demand for nanochemicals globally. Use of nanochemicals has reduced associated risk to health and environment which is favourable for market growth. Additionally, increasing applications of these chemicals for manufacturing agrichemicals, multifunctional coatings having increased durability and self cleaning properties will further fuel the demand for nanochemicals globally. Increasing application of nanotechnology in the chemical industry and new application of nanochemicals in catalyst designing coupled with technological advancements and governmental regulations on chemical manufacturing are expected to offer immense growth opportunities for the nanochemical market.
North America has been identified as the one of the largest regional markets for nanochemicals. Europe is another developed market for nanochemicals owing to the increasing regulatory push for use of chemicals and expanding applications of nanomaterials in chemical manufacturing in this region. Asia Pacific is expected to show significant growth in nanochemicals market in the next six years on account of expanding industries and shifting focus of companies from conventional chemicals to nano-based chemicals. Additionally the governmental support in terms of tax benefits and increased foreign investments especially in emerging markets of China and India is expected to boost the market over the next few years.
