The global metal oxide nanoparticles market was valued at $0.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $1.8 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2021 to 2030.

Metal Oxide Nanoparticles (MONPs) are nanoparticles of metal oxides such as titanium, aluminum, zinc, magnesium, cerium and copper among others. Its particle size ranges from 1 and 100 nanometers (nm), although higher sizes are also available in the market. MONPs exhibit different physiochemical properties as compared to their native bulk compounds. Properties such as surface, optical, thermal, and magnetics. MONPs are used as an additive in manufacturing a wide range of electronic components, fuel additive, building materials, as an additive in cosmetic products, medicines, and glass.

Currently, there are numerous factors that drive the global metal oxide nanoparticles market. MONPs are used in the electronics, automotive, healthcare, construction, and personal care industries. Globally, there is a growing demand for MONP-based sensors and biosensing materials that increase the usage of nanoparticles of TiO2, and ZnO among others.  Gas sensors based on MONPs provide high sensitivity and easy detection of gaseous contaminates at low cost. Other than sensors, MONPs in electronics and optoelectronics include use in integrated circuits, batteries, solar cells, and antennas. In addition, metal oxide nanoparticles are being developed for biomedical and biosensing applications. Treatments like cancer therapy and dentistry can be enhanced by the use of MONPs. Nanoparticles based on iron oxide are used in cancer therapy.

However, the metal and metal oxide nanoparticles have shown to have potential negative impacts on both human health as well as the environment. It generates new classes of toxins that can affect microbial communities. In 2020, a study was designed to evaluate the possible adverse effects and consequences of metal oxide nanoparticles used on some major body organ functions and health parameters. The study confirmed the health risks of the use of metal oxide nanoparticles in the medical field without precautions and supervision. Thus, as the product incorporation of MONP increases globally, concerns over the toxicity of MONPs could attract regulations over its use. This could hamper its market growth during the forecast period. 

The development of metal oxide nanoparticles synthesis using green route is seen as a solution to countering the toxicity of MONPs. Green synthesis consists of using plant-based feedstock as reducing agents to prepare metal oxide nanoparticles. In 2018, nanoparticles of gold (Au), platinum (Pt), palladium (Pd), silver (Ag) and copper oxide (CuO) materials were synthesized in simple aqueous media using the natural polymer gum karaya as a reducing and stabilizing agent. The green synthesis has gained significant global attention due to its feasibility and low environmental impact. Hence, developments in this area could offer fresh growth opportunities for the global metal oxide nanoparticles market during the forecast period.
