  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market across the globe, where the demand for nanowires is majorly driven by the increasing application and demand from industries, such as consumer electronics, solar cells, and other electronic devices.

Major Market Trends

Consumer Electronics Segment to Dominate Market Demand

  • Nanowires, due to properties, such as high crystallinity, high surface to volume to ratio, and high resistance, are extensively used in consumer electronics.
  • Metal nanowires are widely used in the manufacturing of consumer electronics. Nanowires find application in displays, sensors, transistors, memory devices, LEDs, conductors, etc.
  • Besides, nanowires allow for faster communication between devices and microchips, which has increased its application in consumer electronics, such as smartphones, television, GPS tracking devices, identification cards, internet routers, etc.
  • Hence, with diversified application of nanowires in such numerous electronics, the demand for nanowires is expected to increase with rise in production in electronics industry.
  • Asia-Pacific has been witnessing numerous investments into the electronic industry and growth in electronics production, especially in countries, such as China, India, South Korea, and Japan, which is expected to further increase the demand for nanowires for electronic applications in the region during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Global Market

  • Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share in 2018 owing to the increasing demand from industries, such as electronics, aerospace, solar cells, sensors, etc.
  • China stands to be the largest market for nanowires, as the country has been engaging in R&D activities for the development of nanotechnology.
  • The country has a higher usage of nanowires in applications, such as, electrical & electronics, construction, healthcare, and aerospace.
  • China is the world's largest producer of electronics. Owing to the growing electronic production, the government has set goal for semiconductor industry of reaching USD 305 billion in output by 2030.
  • Besides, China has one of the fastest growing aviation industries in the world with a consistent increase in passenger traffic at about 6.6% per year. Owing to this, the country have planned construction of numerous airports in the next 5 years, which is further expected to increase the demand for commercial jets. With this, the demand for nanowires for application in jets is also expected to increase in the country.
  • Similarly, Indian government has planned to construct about 100 airports in the country by 2032, which is further likely to increase demand for commercial jets.
  • Japan is one of the largest producer of electronics, and energy equipment. The country is also witnessing new solar projects in the country, in order to increase the share of renewable energy.
  • For instance, Grasshopper Solar planned an investment of USD 80 million in Japan's Iizuka solar plant owned by Setouchi Koken in September 2018. Hence, this is projected to create demand for solar panels, which is further expected to create demand for nanowires for application in solar cells.
  • Similarly the Japanese company, SoftBank Group, decided to invest USD 60 billion - USD 100 billion in a solar power project in India, which is expected to drive the demand for solar panels, and thereby solar cells.
  • Besides, South Korea is one of the major exporters of electronics. Thus, with growing domestic as well as foreign demand for their electronic products, the market players have been increasing their industrial output in the country.
  • Hence, all such market trends in the region is expected to drive the demand for nanowires market in the region during the forecast period.
