How is the market’s intense focus on R&D affecting its overall growth dynamics?
The demand for nanosensors in home security and medical fields has witnessed immense growth over the past few years and is expected to remain strong in the next few years as well.
The global nanosensors market, though still at a nascent stage, is characterized by innovation and technological upgradation. These innovations not only improve the capabilities of the nanosensor devices but minimize the average time for detection and diagnosis. Thus the intensive research and development activities in developed countries are also a crucial factor boosting the growth of the nanosensors market. In addition, the rising scope for government support and research funding in emerging economies is sure to propel the global market.
However, there are very few sensors that are currently available for the support of consumer electronics. Moreover, the use of nanosensors in surveillance devices violates some of the security and privacy norms, which has had an adverse impact on the growth of the global nanosensors market.
In terms of geography, how are growth opportunities distributed?
The rising affordability of nanosensors has emerged as a key growth driver in applications across emerging countries and poised to support the growth of the global market in the coming years. Backed by government support and research funding, several industries in emerging economies across regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Africa are now establishing themselves as promising regional markets for Nanosensors. Moreover, the development of newer applications for technologies that utilize microtechnology and nanotechnology are also acting as key forces steering the global nanosensors market towards a healthy growth path in these regions.
While emerging economies are promising markets for nanosensors, the global nanosensors market achieves much of its development in terms of technological advancements, R&D activities, and early adoption across a number of industries in region such as North America and Europe. In 2014, the market for nanosensors in North America accounted for over 39% of the overall market. The region is also expected to remain one of the key contributors of growth opportunities to the global market and exhibit a staggering 81.2% CAGR over the period between 2015 and 2021.
