At the beginning of October 2015, a new market report on the global silver nanoparticle market entitled "Global Silver Nanoparticles Market 2015-2019" was published by the market research institute "TechNavio" on the English-language "Research and Markets" website.
What are silver nanoparticles?
Nanosilver (as the particles of silver are also called) are particles of silver. The size of silver nanoparticles is in the nanometer range between 1 nm and 100 nm.
Since the electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity of silver is enormous, this results in a variety of technical applications (especially in the medical field). Silver even has the highest thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity in the periodic table.
Since nanosilver has a larger surface area than the large silver parts, it is easier to spread and works better. It is therefore often used for electrically conductive, transparent films. And because of its special optical properties, it is also suitable for sensors.
The market for silver nanoparticles is growing
According to the report, the global silver nanoparticle market is predicted to grow rapidly by 15.67% over a period of 2014-2019. This trend is due to the increasing demand for transparent conductors based on silver nanowires, which are mainly used for touchscreen production and act as ITO replacements.
According to the report, the global silver nanoparticle market has several growth drivers. For example, a major reason for the growth is the use of silver nanoparticles in antimicrobial applications. They are increasingly used for various industries such as medical technology and children's products.
The main suppliers of silver nanoparticles include the following companies:
- Cima Nanotech
- Cline Scientific
- Emfutur Technologies
- Meliorum Technologies
In addition, the report answers key questions such as:
- What will be the market volume in 2019, and what is the growth rate?
- What are the key market trends and what is driving the market?
- What are the challenges facing market growth and who are the key vendors?
- What opportunities does the market offer and what obstacles can be expected?
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of the most important providers?
