There is a wide-range of products currently on the market incorporating nanomaterials, from golf clubs and ski wax to advanced display technologies in consumer electronics and self-cleaning surfaces in the home. Revenues for nanotechnology and nanomaterials in consumer products were approximately US$1545 million in 2009. The electronics, automotive and household care segments markets generate the greatest revenues at present. These markets will continue to grow to 2015, with the food and personal care sectors also witnessing significant growth.
The market for nanotechnology and nanomaterials in consumer products is expected to more than triple to $5335million by 2015, driven by the demand for innovative new products and increased competition in the consumer electronics and household cleaning products segments. Most applications at present exploit advanced material properties by adding nanoparticles either in the bulk material or on the surface. Modifying surface composition allows for enhanced features including scratch resistance, water repellency, reflectivity and photo activity and combinations thereof. Next generation products are likely to incorporate nanomaterials with multi-functional, “smart” capabilities.
