Product Innovations Boosting the Industrial Applications of Metal and Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Market

According to the report, titled “Metal & Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026,” the demand for metal nanoparticles is projected to remain significantly higher than that of metal oxide nanoparticles. The global market for metal nanoparticles is presently valued at US$ 13.7 Bn, and will soar at 13.9% CAGR to surpass US$ 50 Bn mark by the end of 2026. During this ten-year forecast period, the US$ 1.8 Bn global market for metal oxide nanoparticle will also surge robustly at 10.4% CAGR, and will procure over US$ 5 Bn revenues towards the end of period. This clearly indicates that by the end of 2026, the global metal nanoparticles market will be worth ten times the projected value for global metal oxide nanoparticles market. Collectively, the global market for metal and metal oxide nanoparticles are bound to soar at more than 10% CAGR throughout the forecast period.
