Gold Nanoparticles Market size is projected to cross USD 8 billion by 2022; as per the latest research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Growth is expected to be stimulated by strong prevalence trends across medical applications for imaging, diagnosis, and drug delivery. Gold nanoparticles market product finds extensive application in targeted diagnosis and treatment of tumor and cancer owing to its special properties including strong scattering, optoacoustic signaling, high absorption rate with less bone or tissue interference, etc. Gold nanoparticles market also find applications in photo-thermal therapy and in coating titanium based dental implants for osteoinduction.

Growing expenditure for product development and R&D for applications in end-user industries will also boost the global gold nanoparticles market. Several ongoing research projects on application in gene therapy of plants, electrical and electronic products including colorimetric sensors, nanowires, fuel cells, etc. may give potential growth opportunities.

Development in application industries, especially in the electronics sector, will be an important growth driver for the gold nanoparticles market in the forecast timeframe. Development of the electronics industry in the Asia Pacific, with China, India, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan becoming the major manufacturing hubs for electronic goods, will have a positive influence in the global market in the next few years. Strong consumption in flash drives, micro SD, DLNA devices and several other precision storage devices, photovoltaic devices, and high precision printing will steer gold nanoparticles industry growth.

Insufficient and fluctuating gold supply for the manufacturing of the nanoparticles coupled with inconsistent raw material prices, owing to supply-demand gap may act as restraints for growth. Regulations regarding nanoparticles and their application may also hinder the global gold nanoparticles market growth in the forecast period.
