According to a recent report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "Nanosensors Market by Type, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2026," the global nanosensors market was worth $536.6 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $1,321.3 million by 2026, to register a CAGR of 11.0% during the forecast period.
Nanosensor is a nanoscale device used to measure physical quantities and convert the measured quantities into signals that can be detected and analyzed in order to initiate further operations.
Nanomaterials-based sensors provide various advantages in specificity and sensitivity over sensors made from traditional materials. Nano sensors have specificity as they function at a scale of natural biological processes, allowing operation with chemical and biological molecules, with recognition sites that cause detectable physical changes.
Further, enhancements in sensitivity from high surface-to-volume ratio of nanomaterials, as well as physical properties of nanomaterials that are used as the basis for detection, including nano photonics make way for the developments in the nanosensor detection technology, which act as major nanosensors market trends globally. Nano sensors are integrated with nanoelectronics to add accomplished processing capability to the nano sensor. Therefore, creating lucrative nanosensors market opportunity in the future.
One of the most important and useful types of nano sensors is biosensor in the healthcare industry, because of its high ability to cancer diagnosis and even severe disease. In addition, the biosensors can be utilized for identification of DNA. Dendrimers are the sensors made layer-by-layer onto areas with a diameter of fewer than five nanometers and produced by combinate polymers. Due to tiny dimension of these sensors, they can be organized via epidermis
Furthermore, various organizations globally are investing in nano sensor market and its emerging applications. For instance, in 2018, Osaka University-led researchers, combined nanosensor technology and artificial intelligence for rapid diagnose of influenza.

In January 2019, Bruker Corporation launched JPK NanoWizard ULTRA Speed 2 advanced AFM system, which combines highest speed and highest resolution AFM with advanced bio-imaging features. In addition, the company acquired Alicona Imaging GmbH, a leading provider of optical-based metrology products. In this agreement, Alicona's optical 3D metrology products are used in Bruker's microCT, stylus profiler, white-light interferometry and atomic force microscope (AFM) product suite in 2018, followed by the acquisition of Berlin-based JPK Instruments AG, a nano-analytical device manufacturer company. This acquisition fueled the Bruker's biotechnology and equipment in the same year.
