Nano Copper Oxide Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, was valued at $24,660 thousand in 2015 and forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $120,670 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 25.4% during the period 2016-2022. Electricals & electronics segment is expected to remain the highest revenue-generating segment throughout the forecast period. North America held the leading position in the global market in 2015, and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the study period.
According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead Chemical Research at AMR, Strong demand in electronic equipment along with decreasing prices are the factors resulting in significant upsurge in nano copper oxide demand in long run, though toxicity at higher concentration may hamper the market growth.
The demand for nano copper oxide has witnessed tremendous growth driven by the penetration in electrical & electronics, paints & coatings, semiconductors, coatings, energy storage, catalysts, and others. Nano copper oxide industry players are investing immensely to find new commercial avenues for their product segments via strategic partnership and collaborations. Some of the major factors that drive the demand for nano copper oxide include upsurge in demand for electronic products, increase in demand for antimicrobial coatings, and decrease in prices of nano copper oxide. However, factors such as toxicity to human lungs and aquatic life is expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Growth in research & development coupled with government subsidies and increase in number of end-user industry will provide significant opportunities to the industry players across the value chain.
In 2015, electricals & electronics was the largest end-user segment in terms of revenue with around half of the share followed by catalysts and others. In electrical & electronics end-user, nano copper oxide is mainly used in conductive coatings. Extraordinary physio-chemical properties of nano copper oxide has increased their penetration in wide array of end-user as it results in improved performance of end-products.
