Rising demand in the defense sector.

The nanosensors market is expected to surge in the coming years, due to its rising demand in the military and defense sectors. It has a wide range of potential applications in this sector, which includes forensics, decontamination, and chemical detection. Major institutes and organizations have been making significant developments in the market, in the past few years. For instance, The Navy Research Laboratory's Institute for Nanoscience had been studying and researching quantum dots for applications in nanophotonic and to identify biological materials. Moreover, there had been an expectation of widespread adoption of nanosensors for battlefield scenarios. For instance, with the use of ZnO nanowires, several types of self-powered nanodevices, like wireless data transmission, UV sensors, vibration, and Hg2+ ion senor had been already demonstrated, worldwide. Countries, such as The United States, China, and India are expected to play a major role in the market growth, in the coming years. The Indian government under the Innovations for Defense Excellence Funds (iDEX) had allocated around INR 500 crores for MSMEs and Indian startups to create novel defense solutions under the 'Make In India' initiative.

Growth of Start-ups.

There had been a rise in the number of start-ups, worldwide, intending to develop and produce novel nanosensing solutions for different end-users in the market. NT Sensors, a Spanish startup, had been offering a wide range of nanotube-based sensors that quantifies the total ion concentration of agricultural cultivation solutions and samples in real-time. The firm's nanosensors had been offering insights and data to identify waste points, identify ionic strength of the drainage, and helping to enhance crop performance. Other players have also been making significant developments in the market. Nasys, an Italian start-up, had been developing customized gas nanotechnology sensors. The company's nanosensors could be integrated into existing instruments and gas detectors. These sensors had been identifying the gas composition for environmental, industrial, and domestic use cases. Tracense, an Israel-based startup, has been offering ultrasensitive nanotechnology sensors that can detect and find potential threats in liquid, solid and gaseous materials at nanolevel concentrations. These trends and developments are expected to play a major role in the market growth.

Latest Developments.

Major institutes, companies, and organizations have been developing novel and advanced nanosensors for the market.

  • In July 2021, a team of scientists from the University of California announced the development of a novel kind of biosensor that could be injected into the person's bloodstream and would travel into the brain. The novel nanosensor, named NeuroSWARM3 would monitor the neural activity of the person's brain. The tech could help in granting extra mobility to people with disabilities.
  • In December 2020, researchers from the Singapore MIT Alliance for Research & Technology, and scientists from Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision, announced the development of a novel living plant-based sensor that could in real-time detect, find, and monitor levels of arsenic, in the soil. The novel development would ensure that preventive measures would be taken to keep arsenic levels at their minimum in the soil.

Increasing use in cancer monitoring and treatment.

The market is expected to surge in the coming years, due to the rising demand for nanosensors in cancer monitoring and treatment. According to the data given by the World Health Organization, cancer has been a major and leading cause of death, globally, and had accounted for around 10 million deaths in the year 2020. Nanosensors would be able to allow the screening of diseases/normal individuals among the populations by circulating tumor cells, early detection of biomarkers and exosomes from the blood samples. Optical sensors could be widely used in cancer detection and monitoring. It has several potential applications for biomaterials detection, such as the detection of basal cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and others.
