Global Nanoporous Materials Market, By Type (Zeolites, Clays, Silica Gels, Activated Alumina, Others

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1924677


Increasing use in biomedical applications is expected to drive the growth of the nanoporous materials market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Materials having any one of their dimensions less than 100nm are termed as nanomaterials.  Materials that have a porous structure with the size of pores or voids less than 100nm are called nanoporous materials. It is important to obtain particles or pores with uniform shape and size for their particular application.

Segment Analysis: 

Depending on the size of the pores, nanoporous materials can be classified into three groups according to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) – Microporous (Size of pores ≤2 nm), Mesoporous (Size of pores between 2nm-50nm), Macroporous (Pore Diameter >50nm). These materials generally have a very large pore volume (up to 70%) and a very high surface area.

They are used in several applications such as selective air and water treatment, battery separator, catalysts, etc. Some commonly used nanoporous materials are zeolites and aerogels. Almost all zeolites and their derivatives are microporous whereas aerogels are mesoporous materials.

The increasing use of nanoporous materials in applications such as energy storage and conversion in batteries, drug delivery, and electronic and magnetic devices, etc., are fueling the growth of the nanoporous materials market. Moreover, the growing utilization of nanoporous materials in fluid catalytic cracking, water treatment, and other new and growing applications is also aiding in market growth.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increasing use in biomedical applications
  • Growing demand for sustainable energy such as application in solar cells and other types of batteries
