Report : Middle East and Africa Metal Nanoparticles Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Metal (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Iron, Titanium, and Others) and End-Use Industry (Pharmaceutical and Healthcare, Electrical and Electronics, Chemicals, Personal Care and Cosmetics, and Others)
Gold Segment to Dominate Middle East and Africa Metal Nanoparticles Market during 2021-2028
According to a new market research study on “Middle East and Africa Metal Nanoparticles Market to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis and Forecast – by Metal, End-Use Industry and Country,” is expected to reach US$ 927.34 million by 2028 from US$ 476.12 million in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2021 to 2028. The report provides trends prevailing in the Middle East and Africa metal nanoparticles market along with the drivers and restraints pertaining to the market growth. Incorporation of metal nanoparticles in medical industry and rise in the usage of metal nanoparticles as catalysts are major factors driving the growth of the Middle East and Africa metal nanoparticles market. However, adverse effects of metal nanoparticles on environment and ecosystems along with complex and expensive manufacturing may hinder the growth of Middle East and Africa metal nanoparticles market.
The Middle East and Africa, South Africa reported a huge number of COVID-19 cases, which led to the discontinuation of several business operations, including metal nanoparticles manufacturing activities. However, various research has been ongoing for the utilization of gold nanoparticles for COVID testing kits, that will provide the results in a matter of minutes. A group of researchers claims that they have developed a diagnostic test that can detect the SARS-CoV-2 (causative agent of COVID-19) within 10 minutes of test and the results will be visible to naked eyes. The test is a simple colorimetry-based assay that uses gold nanoparticles that are capped with the nucleic acid sequence of the nucleocapsid phosphoprotein of the virus. The test is based on the determination of specific antibodies that are developed in response to the infection. Thus, a surge in the use of gold nanoparticles in the healthcare sector, particularly in the development of rapid COVID-19 test kits, is boosting the metal nanoparticles market.
The market for Middle East and Africa metal nanoparticles is segmented into metal, end-use industry and country. Based on metal, the market is segmented into platinum, gold, silver, iron, titanium, and others. In 2020, the gold segment held the largest share in Middle East and Africa metal nanoparticles market.
