The Medical Application of Magnetic Nanoparticles Has Good Benefits, with More Than Half of the North American Market Share

Magnetic nanoparticles are a class of nanoparticle that can be manipulated using magnetic fields. Such particles commonly consist of two components, a magnetic material, often iron, nickel and cobalt, and a chemical component that has functionality. It has good magnetic guidance, biocompatibility and biodegradability.

The magnetic nanoparticle industry is witnessing enormous potential owing to continuous research and development over the past few years. Usage of the magnetic Nano carriers in biomedical applications for separation, diagnosis and therapy has been a subject of research for almost a decade. The continuous developments and ongoing research ranging from contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging to the deterioration of cancer cells via hyperthermia treatment have paved a bright future, especially in medical industry.

Magnetic nanoparticles can be divided into iron oxide nanoparticles and magnetic microspheres: Iron oxide nanoparticles are iron oxide particles with diameters between about 1 and 100 nanometers. The two main forms are magnetite (Fe3O4) and its oxidized form magnetite (γ-Fe2O3). They have attracted extensive interest due to their superparamagnetic properties and their potential applications in many fields,occupying most of the market, with a market share of 75.04% in 2017. Magnetic microspheres are supramolecular particles that are small enough to circulate through capillaries without producing embolic occlusion but are (ferromagnetic) to be captured in micro vessels.

Biomedical is a popular application market of magnetic nanoparticles, such as drug delivery, drugs and therapy, in vivo imaging, Nano fluids, biomedicine, data storage, and microfluidics, which is a great help for disease treatment, accounting for about half of the entire market. In the information technology and electronics industries, magnetic nanoparticles are widely used in recording media and data storage. For energy storage applications, Fe3O4 and other materials are used to improve the efficiency of Li-ion batteries. Attributing to the inclination of people towards highly efficient devices, the energy storage industry is expected to boost the magnetic nanoparticle market. Except for the above applications, there are still other fields using magnetic nanoparticles, such as waste water treatment etc.

Prospect Analysis of Magnetic Nanoparticle Industry in Various Regions
