Global Nano-Chemicals Market Report, published by Variant Market Research, forecast that the global market is expected to reach $12.8 billion by 2024 from $6.9 billion in 2016; growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2016 to 2024. Nano chemicals are the chemicals, produced by using nanotechnology on conventional chemical building blocks such as propane, ethane, and butane. Nano chemicals display beneficial properties such as self-catalysis, anti-corrosion as compared to other conventional chemicals. These chemicals bring out chemical reactions in a lesser amount of time. Wide range of these chemicals are developed to build nano based medical cures, electronics, and nanoscale manufacturing with self-assembly capability. Zirconia, aluminum oxide and, silica are key nano size chemicals. As the global economy advances, the per capita income is also expected to increase which in turn is expected to increase the demand for innovative and technologically advanced products such as nano chemicals.
