Nanocopper oxide is a red or brown to black nanomaterial available in various forms and is used to meet the needs of the diversified user base. These nanoparticles possess several chemical and physical attributes including antimicrobial and antibiocide properties, photovoltaic properties, relatively stability, and superconductivity. They are generally used in small quantities to boost the performance of the end product; they are also considered to be cost-efficient advanced solutions. The nanonparticles are, therefore, used to manufacture batteries, semiconductor devices and equipment, gas sensors, microelectronics, and other equipment. Extensive research and development activities in the field of nanotechnology have paved the way for the application of these nanoparticles in biomedical, agricultural, textile, and other relevant industries.
The Europe nanocopper oxide market, based on end-user, has been segmented into electrical and electronics, paints and coatings, catalysts, energy storage, and others. In 2018, the electrical and electronics segment accounted for the largest share of the market; the paints and coatings segment is expected to report the highest CAGR during 2019–2027. Advancement in the physical scale and cost of computing power system have permitted devices geared at a customer market to carry substantial onboard processing proficiency. Sequentially, low cost has urged mass adoption of handheld and smaller computing products using specialty materials such as nanocopper oxide. Smartphones, technically a replacement for landlines, offer the widest variety of functions and facilities, though function-specific products with onboard computing. Wearables, including fitness monitors and other smart products; and smart sensors and controls for the home, including computerized thermostats, have seen delivery numbers more than triple y-o-y. Nano-scale innovations are playing a noteworthy role in future consumer devices. Moreover, nanocopper oxide enables the possibility of the low-cost production of flexible, transparent, and lightweight devices.
The nanocopper oxide market in Europe has been segmented into Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Russia, and Rest of Europe. Germany held the largest share of the Europe nanocopper oxide market, followed by France and the UK. In Europe, nanocopper oxide is extensively used in industries such as construction, paint and coatings, energy & power, electrical and electronics, and chemicals & materials. Copper is one of the popular raw materials used in the construction industry. It is used in the manufacturing of water pipes, while it is also popular as a roofing material due to its resistance toward extreme weather conditions. Besides its wider application in the form of copper coinage, nanocopper oxide?a biocidal agent?is currently most widely used among various industries. In the paint and coatings industry, the nanocopper oxide is applied in antifouling paints for ships. It also prevents the growth of microorganisms such as fungi and algae, and ships can theoretically save up to 40% fuel. .

The COVID-19 pandemic, which first began in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, has spread at a fast pace worldwide. As of March 2020, China, Italy, Iran, Spain, the Republic of Korea, France, Germany, and the US are a few of the worst-affected countries in terms confirmed cases and reported deaths. According to the latest WHO figures, there are ~7,127, 753 confirmed cases and 407, 159 total deaths globally. The outbreak has been affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Chemicals & materials is one of the major industries suffering serious consequences such as supply chain disruptions, technology events cancellations, and office shutdowns. The US has reported the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the region. The lockdown of various plants and factories in the US is affecting the global supply chains and negatively impacting the manufacturing and delivery schedules, and electronic goods sales. All these factors are likely to limit the growth of the chemicals & materials industry in North America in the coming months.
