This techno-commercial report discusses various applications of nanofibers in biomedical and healthcare
sector and provide them as advanced and potential solutions to the current challenges facing in this
rapidly expanding field. Industrial developments in manufacturing technology by employing various
proprietary processes based on electrospinning, solution & melt spinning and melt-blowing methods
have provided the much-needed momentum for realizing the commercial potential of nanofibers. Major
class of nanofibers used in various biomedical and healthcare applications are prepared from various
natural and synthetic polymers as well as from their composites with inorganic materials. Ceramic/
inorganic nanofibers and carbon nanofibers are also increasingly being used. Important biomedical
applications of nanofibers include filtration, medical textiles, wound healing, tissue engineering &
regeneration, biosensors and drug delivery.
This report analyses the nanofiber-enabled global biomedical market size in terms of material types,
biomedical applications and geographical regions. The report also discusses the key drivers, challenges
and opportunities for nanofibers in biomedical industry. Nanofiber industry is a global enterprise serving
niche market applications. The global demand of nanofibers in biomedical industry reached 30 metric
tons per annum in 2012. The global nanofiber-enabled biomedical market was valued at US$ 24 million
in 2012 and is further expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 36.8% during
2013-2018 to reach US$ 155.2 million by 2018. North America tops the list with a share of 50% in global
nanofiber-enabled biomedical markets, followed by Europe (37%), Asia-Pacific (12%) and RoW (1%).
Polymer nanofibers constitute the largest share of total nanofibers market in terms of materials. The
largest market share of nanofibers for biomedical applications is accounted for by filtration followed by
medical textiles, wound healing, tissue engineering etc. In the next five years, the consumption is
expected to post a considerable growth due to their unique combination of desirable properties, high
compatibility with nonwovens and ready availability of biodegradable nanofibers over the conventional
fibers. The US is the world leader in research and development in this area followed by Asian countries
like China and South Korea.
Global nanofiber industry landscape is dotted with numerous start-up companies as well as large
corporations. Most of the nanofiber manufacturers are large corporations and some of them have captive
uses for their production. Majority of the application developers are however small start-up companies,
which either are spin-offs from universities or armed with technologies licensed from universities. This
market is still in very nascent stage and therefore ample opportunities exist for the entry of new players
across the globe.
