The nanocomposites market was valued at over USD 4 billion in 2019 and is projected to register a CAGR of around 15.5% during the forecast period, 2019–2025.
Nanocomposites Market Synopsis
Nanocomposites are materials that incorporate nanosized particles dispersed in a matrix into a matrix of standard material, such as polymer/carbon nanotube or Si/Ge nanocomposites to optimize the performance of the traditional materials. The structure is a matrix-filler combination, where the filler-like particles, fibers, or fragments are surrounded and bound together as discrete units by the matrix. The different types of matrix are polymer matrix nanocomposites+ (PMNC), metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNC), and ceramic matrix nanocomposites (CMNC). The majorly used nanoparticles are carbon nanofibers (CNFs), carbon nanotubes [multiwall (MWNTs), small-diameter (SDNTs), and single-wall (SWNTs)], nano-silica (N-silica), nano-aluminum oxide (Al2O3), nano titanium oxide (TiO2), and montmorillonite organoclays (MMT). Carbon nanotube is one of the most promising materials in nanocomposites on account of its superior properties such as rigidity, elasticity, strength, electric conductivity, and field emission. Nanocomposites exhibit structural, flame resistance, and thermal properties without significant loss in impact or clarity owing to which they are widely used in various applications in the packaging, aerospace, automotive, and medical industries.
The prominent demand-side market driver for the global nanocomposites market is the increasing demand for the product in the food packaging applications. The preliminary functions of food packaging are to extend the shelf life of packaged food materials by preventing unfavorable changes caused by chemical contaminants, microbial spoilage, oxygen, temperature change, moisture, light, and maintaining the quality and safety of food products from production to consumption. Packaging acts as a barrier for gases, water vapor, light, and microorganisms and creates a physicochemical conditions/environment for the packaged products. Moreover, the demand for innovative packaging materials is increasing to meet the need for higher quality food with safety, sustainability, and convenience, making the food packaging industry a dynamic industry. Polymer/clay nanocomposites with improved barrier properties are being increasingly used as a barrier layer in a multilayer packaging material with other structural layers. In addition, the growing demand for antimicrobial nanocomposite films and bio-nano composites (green nanocomposites) as food packaging materials is further expected to favor the market growth in the years to follow.
