Moreover, The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) are funded by the Canadian government for research in the field of nanomedicine and regenerative medicine. Therefore, it will drive the nanomedicine industry growth in the coming years.

Application Insights

The drug delivery segment dominated the nanomedicine market in 2022 with a share of 34.09% as a result of the rising rates of several chronic and infectious diseases including cancer and COVID-19 as well as growing public awareness of the potential uses for nanomedicines. In addition, growth in research activities exploring the potential applications of nanomedicines in drug delivery is boosting the segment. For instance, in March 2023, researchers atMemorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Mount Sinai Health System developed a new drug delivery method for targeted delivery of anti-cancer drugs for the treatment of brain tumors in children.

The therapeutics segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate of 12.79% from 2023 to 2030, due to the availability of numerous products that fit into this category for the treatment of various ailments. This application of nanomedicine includes revenues generated from medications, equipment, and drug delivery systems. Additionally, technological advancements facilitating the development of nanotherapeutics that can cross biological barriers are anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.

Indication Insights

The clinical oncology segment dominated the market with a share of 32.44% in 2022. The increased prevalence of cancer disorders has resulted in a vast number of cancer treatment products now in the clinical stages of development as well as developments in the introduction of therapeutic particles and devices. Clinical oncology also encompasses several active and passive cancer-targeting techniques within the nanomedicine industry and is thus expected to grow over the forecast period.

The infectious disease segment is expected to grow at a rapid CAGR of 12.31% by 2030 due to the increasing need for developing rapid, efficient, and cost-effective therapies for infectious diseases. Nanomedicine is a rapidly evolving treatment modality owing to its targeting efficiency and fewer adverse effects. Thus, targeting a wide variety of infectious diseases is possible and it represents promising growth prospects for the nanomedicine industry.

Molecule Type Insights

The nanoparticles segment captured the highest market share of 76.32% in 2022 due to the benefits that various nanoparticles offer, as well as the growing usage of metal and metallic oxide particles in photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of infectious diseases and cancer. Several companies in this domain are also undertaking initiatives to develop novel technologies using nanoparticles. For instance, in January 2022, NaNotics LLC started a research cooperation with Mayo Clinic to develop a NaNot, a subtractive nanoparticle that specifically targets the soluble form of the immune inhibitor PD-L1, which is produced by tumors.

Global nanomedicine Market share and size, 2022

The nanotubes segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 10.90% from 2023 to 2030 as the rising demand for nanotube products in various healthcare settings is anticipated to spur expansion in the upcoming period.
