Nanoporous materials comprises of regular organic or inorganic framework that supports a porous structure. The size of these pores is primarily between 100 nanometers and can even be smaller. Nanoporous materials are classified into two broad categories including bulk materials and membranes. Nanoporous membranes include cell membranes while activated carbon and zeolites are examples of bulk nanoporous membranes. Nanoporous materials are manufactured out of natural raw materials; however, artificial nanoporous materials can also be produced. Nanoporous materials with evenly sized pores have the ability of letting only certain substances pass through, while blocking others. Nanoporous materials are sub divided into three types including microporous materials, mesoporous materials and macroporous materials.
Nanoporous materials are used as adsorbents and ion exchangers, they are also employed in the catalysis process, in nano-reactors, guest-host interactions, as a low dielectric constant mediate. In addition, nanoporous materials are also employed in a wide range of biomedical processes including decontamination, as an antibacterial agent, in the slow release of drugs and as a filter in hemodialysis. Moreover, nanoporous materials are of technological and scientific importance owing to their ability to absorb and cooperate with ions, atoms, molecules on their pore space and their sizable interior surfaces. Zeolites are the most widely used nanoporous materials and are the backbone of the already existing large-scale application segments in key sectors of the chemical industry. The application of zeolites range from high-end catalyst supports to detergent builders specifically in the petroleum and the chemical industry.
Some of the key driver of the nanoporous material market is its use in the biomedical industry. The nanoporous industry is a mature industry with a wide range of products having an array of applications and is employed in various industries including the chemical industry and the biomedical industry. However owing to the expanded scope, applicability, environmental rules, and regulations coupled with improved living standards and lifestyles of consumers around the world are stimulating increasing demand for nanoporous products. Furthermore, newly introduced specialized nanoporous adsorbent products are creating novel market opportunities in the electronics manufacturing industry and in the biomedical sector.
The demand for nanoporous materials has been the highest in North America owing to the increase in emerging technologies in the biomedical industry and the fast growing chemical industry. However, the nanoporous material industry is expected to be mature over the forecast period. Europe follows North America in the nanoporous materials industry. Owing to the growing chemical industries, the stringent rules and regulations in Europe and the wide scope of applications of nanopowders materials, the demand for these materials is expected to increase over the projected period. In addition, the North American region and the European regions prefer nanoporous materials over other materials as these materials are usually manufactured from natural raw materials and do not have rules and regulations put forth by their respective governments concerning their use either as catalysts or in the biomedical industry as decontamination or antibacterial agents. The demand of nanoporous materials in the Asia Pacific region is expected to increase during the projected period owing to the introduction of new technologies and the high number of chemical industries especially in emerging countries such as India and China.
Some of the key companies operating in the nanoporous materials market include Albemarle Corp., American Colloid Company, Nanocor Inc., BASF SE, BASF Catalyst, ExxonMobil Chemical and Cloud Mining Company among others.
