Nanopinion: European nanomaterial market expected to grow – new barriers emerging
Dr Anastasios Papadiamantis and Dr Antreas Afantitis tell us about the findings of a study commissioned by the EU Observatory for Nanomaterials on the EU market for nanomaterials, including substances, uses, volumes and key operators. Read all about it in our Nanopinion guest column.
“The EU (including EEA and Switzerland) nanomaterials market is expected to have a steady growth led by the medicine, personal care and manufacturing sectors. The projected compound annual growth rate up until 2025 is 13.9 % per volume and 18.4 % per value driven by technological advancement and strong consumer demand. However, the recent events in Ukraine add yet another barrier to the already existing relatively high barriers to enter the market, such as a strict regulatory landscape, the high power of suppliers and tough competition.”
Nanopinion is a platform where EUON invites views ranging from policy makers and authorities to industry and civil society on their work and areas of interest related to nanomaterials and nanotechnology.
