  • (1888PressRelease) December 28, 2012 - Wellesley, Mass. - According to a new technical market research report, GLOBAL MARKETS FOR NANOPARTICLE SIZE ANALYSIS INSTRUMENTATION IN THE LIFE SCIENCES (BIO114A), from BCC Research (, the global market for nanoparticle analysis equipment was valued at nearly $5.2 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach $5.3 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach $6.8 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%.

    The nanoparticle analysis equipment market can be broken down into several segments, including: particle characterization, optical microscopy, and electron microscopy.

    The particle characterization segment is expected to have a value of $535 million in 2012 and $703 million in 2017, a CAGR of 5.6%.
    As a segment, optical microscopy should reach nearly $1.9 billion in 2012 and $2.4 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 5.3%.
    Electron microscopy is expected to reach $2 billion in 2012 and $2.5 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 4.4%.

    Nanoparticles are particles that are smaller than 100 nm (1 nm is one-billionth of a meter) and are invisible to the human eye. These minute particles are 80,000 times thinner than the width of a human hair. The physical and chemical properties of materials on the nanoscale are radically different from those we are used to in the larger-scale world. They have different strengths, conductivity, and reactivity, and it is these properties that are being utilized in biomedical and life sciences research.

    The requirements for the production and type of nanoparticle structure formed by each material depend on the method of synthesis and the physical conditions employed. Physical conditions include temperature, pressure, length of time exposed, and the presence or absence of supporting (catalytic) materials. While the size of a particle is of critical importance, the shape of the particle is also extremely important for a specific particle to perform its biological function (e.g., transporting a chemotherapy drug to the site of a specific tumor cell type).
