Nano Silver exhibits antibacterial as well as conductive properties. Therefore due to its antimicrobial nature, it finds use in various applications, ranging from healthcare, plastics, food packaging while the conductive properties makes it find application in electronics, conductors, touch screen etc. However, 80% of nano silver is presently used as an antibacterial agent. Existing players in the field of drug manufacture, food packaging, textiles, detergents, solar cells, consumer electronics, sensors etc will find the report more useful as it opens up a whole new world of business opportunities. The emerging application areas where research efforts are underway are again in the fields of medicine and a few in the area of conductive applications.
The current global consumption of nano silver is estimated to be in the range of 800 MT. North America is the largest consumer of Nano Silver by volume followed by Europe. However, 60% of the global capacity is located in Asia especially in China and Korea. Nano Silver is sold in two forms – solid powder and liquid solution. There two main processes for manufacture of nano silver are Control Detonation System and Hot Plasma Jet System. The price and quality of the nano silver is dependent on the particle synthesis method used.
The Indian market is still in the process of development with its volume of consumption ranging between 3-6 MT in the year 2011. Most of the sales are to research laboratories and a few pharmaceutical companies. Market is likely to shift from just laboratory usage to other application areas in line with global usage pattern.
Emerging applications show tremendous growth potential in use of Nano Silver in medicine and as conductive, in solar cells and food packaging. It is expected that the market for Nano Silver market will grow at 30% CAGR over the next four years ending 2015.
The report also provides input on some of the key stakeholders’ viz. manufacturers, traders and end users of nano silver market.
