Global Magnetite Nanoparticles Market Trends:
Increasing number of nano-drug projects has been observed as a major trend in the market. According to the European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine, the United Kingdom had around 104 nano-drug projects in the pipeline in 2019. Moreover, According to the same source, there are around 29 nano-drug projects in the pipeline in Spain as of 2019.
Key players are adopting growth strategies such as partnership and agreement to expand their reach. This could be a major trend for magnentic nanoparticles market. For instance, in February 2019, nanoComposix signed an agreement with CliniSciences, thereby establishing a partnership for expanding the distribution of nanoComposix’s materials and technologies to customers throughout Europe.
Global Magnetite Nanoparticles Market Restraints:
Unfavorable condition arising due to Covid-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the market growth. The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the early 2020 is becoming more severe than the great financial crisis in 2007–08. This pandemic is expected to lead to the decreased investment and/or is expected to postpone the ongoing projects in various industries. According to Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V. (ZVEI), the global electronis industry is expected to decline by around 3% compared to 2018. Meanwhile, Europe and the Americas are expected to register a decline of 7% each.
High cost of magnetic nanoparticles is expected to limit its adoption. This is projected to hinder the market growth. For instance, the cost ranges from USD 380 per kg (for iron oxides, both magnetite and maghemite) to USD 2,255 per kg (for nZVI) for commercial magnetite nanoparticles without any functionalization.
