Market Dynamics

Driver: Increased use of nanofibers in the electronics segment

Due to characteristics like chemical flexibility, low cost, and ease of manufacture, polymer nanofibers made by the electrospinning method have a great deal of potential for use in photonics and electronics. A variety of light-emitting sources, sensors, and energy harvesters use nanofiber as an active component. Nanofibers also find widespread use in organic semiconductors. Organic compounds that exhibit semiconducting qualities are known as organic semiconductors. These are inexpensive, effective, and lightweight. These nanofibers are produced at a low cost thanks to the production methods used.

Restraints: Manufacturing and non-recurring development costs

Manufacturing and non-recurring development costs continue to limit composites' penetration in a variety of applications, including sporting goods, marine, and consumer goods. The primary concerns are design consistency, process standardization, and maintenance technology. The lack of material and methodology standardization forces manufacturers to consider conservative designs, which impedes mass production and economic performance of automobiles and aircraft. Furthermore, limited human resources with composite training and experience limit the scope of composite applications. Nanofibers are used more frequently in organic semiconductors as well. Organic compounds that exhibit semiconducting qualities are known as organic semiconductors. These are inexpensive, effective, and lightweight. The techniques that are used to manufacture these nanofibers are quite inexpensive as well.

Opportunities: Increased hygiene standards among people

The general hygiene norms of people have increased considerably, more so after the covid-19 pandemic. People have now become aware of the necessity for clean and sanitized environment after witnessing the wrath of the pandemic. This is leading to the rise in demand of air and water filters wherein nanofibers are extensively used. The deterioration of air quality globally as a result of increasing pollution is also making people become more conscious about the indoor air quality which is driving the demand for air filters. The market in Asia-Pacific seems to be a lucrative one due to many factors such as enhanced standard of living, increased disposable income and rapid urbanization.

“Water and air filtration was the largest application for nanofiber market in 2021, in terms of value”

With their high surface-to-volume ratio, low pressure drops, superior void interconnectivity, and tunable connectivity and morphology, electro spun nanofiber-based filter media excel at outstanding filtration. Nanofibers are utilized in high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters as a result of these reasons. Several chemical and gas sensing applications, including the detection of air quality, inspection of dangerous and flammable gases, and environmental monitoring, are actively being investigated with nanofibers made from metal oxide semiconductors. These nanofibers can quickly identify a variety of reducing and oxidizing gases.

“Asia-pacific was the largest market for nanofiber in 2021, in terms of value.”

The market has been expanding as a result of rising demand from sectors like healthcare, aerospace and military, energy, and automotive. After the US, China has the second-largest healthcare sector in the world. By 2030, China is anticipated to contribute around 25% of the income to the global healthcare sector. The need for nanofiber for drug delivery, tissue engineering, stem cell therapy, cancer therapy, and wound healing is anticipated to rise as a result.
