Metamaterials are an artificial structural elements, which are designed to achieve advantageous and/or unusual (electromagnetic) properties. Metamaterials are majorly associated with the negative refraction and this property has gained substantial attention because of its potential for cloaking invisibility devices and microscopy with super resolution. Possessing customized dielectric properties and tunable responses they allow for excellent flexibility in a range of applications, their use enabling the manipulation of fields and waves at a subwavelength scale.
Moreover, metamaterials are majorly get preferred due to its property of affecting electromagnetic radiation or sound and allowing engineers to manipulate wave propagation by modifying unit cells in different ways.

Key Takeaways o the Market:
- Among the end-use industries, aerospace and defense segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This is owing to superior electromagnetic properties of the metamaterials that facilitate their use in navigation, absorbers, sensors, and spectroscopy.
- Among applications, antenna and radar segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Metamaterials have the property of enhancing radiation and magnetic dipole antennas. Metamaterials increase the radiated power. Furthermore, metamaterials increases the gain of an antenna, owing to its band gap and periodic structure. The metamaterials antenna has structure that stores and re-radiates energy which makes its size small and behaves as larger antenna. Patch antenna with metamaterial cover has increased directivity. Flat horn antenna with flat aperture constructed of zero index metamaterial has the advantage of improved directivity. Moreover, zero-index metamaterials can be used to achieve high directivity antennas. Metamaterials can enhance the gain and reduce the return loss of a patch antenna. Moreover, the use of artificial materials and surfaces increases the antenna features such as impedance matching, gain bandwidth, efficiency, front-to-back ratio, etc.
- Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate over the forecast period. This growth of the market is attributed to growing electronics, power, and telecommunications sectors in the region. Moreover, increasing investment for development and strengthening of aerospace and defense sector by countries such as India and China is also expected to boost the metamaterials market growth in Asia Pacific.
- For instance, according to GSM Association’s 2019 estimates, India is expected to contribute over a quarter of the world’s new mobile subscribers during the period 2018 to 2025. Moreover, the estimates also predict that by 2025, India, China, Pakistan, Nigeria, Indonesia, U.S., and Brazil would contribute over 50% of the world’s mobile subscribers, owing to rapid telecom infrastructure transformation and favorable government initiatives to develop innovative and next generation telecom infrastructure such as telecom towers, baseband units, and radio stations, among others.
