In 2007, the Nobel Prize Committee stated that, “Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) can be considered one of the first real applications of the promising field of nanotechnology.”  Nanomagnetic materials and products in general and GMR in particular still represent the most mature and widely used examples of nanotechnology and nanoscale materials.  With this promise in mind, the primary objective of this report is twofold: to identify current, emerging and futuristic applications for nanomagnetic materials and devices, and to evaluate actual and potential markets by application and type. 

REASONS FOR DOING THE REPORT

The properties of nanostructured magnetic materials and devices are extraordinarily different from those of conventional magnetic systems.  Esoteric technical terms such as exchange coupling, giant magnetoresistance, single-domain behavior, superparamagnetism and tunneling magnetoresistance all describe some of the unique characteristics and behavior obtainable from nanomagnetic particles, films and bulk materials.  

Interesting science is nice, certainly, but practical, revenue-generating applications are even better.  It turns out that the properties of nanomagnetic systems are enabling a variety of actual and potential commercial uses, from data storage technology and nonvolatile memory to industrial sensors and cancer treatment.

Some nanomagnetic products have been on the market for years or even decades, while others have yet to reach commercialization.  The gamut of these nanomagnetic materials and devices is covered in this report, including products based on particles or dispersions, nanoscale thin films and bulk nanostructured materials.  

Current and future applications of nanomagnetic materials and devices directly impact biotechnology, industrial products and information storage.  Some products, especially in the area of magnetic storage media, rely exclusively on nanomagnetic materials.  Other products could be revolutionized by recent nanomagnetic material and processing developments. 

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

This report greatly expands and updates on nanomagnetics, materials and devices, including forecasted market growth and applications though 2017 in the following technology and applications:

  • Sensors:
    • Biosensors and bioassays.
    • Giant magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors.
  • Separation.
  • Imaging.
  • Data Storage:
    • Magnetic tapes.
    • Hard disks.
    • Recording heads.
    • Magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM).
  • Medical and genetics
  • Others:
    • Nanocrystalline soft magnetic cores.
    • Magnetic fluid seals.
    • Thermal transfer.
    • Catalysts.
    • Environmental remediation.

METHODOLOGY

The report identifies current, emerging and experimental applications and evaluates actual and potential markets by application and type.  

Throughout the report, past market data is expressed in current dollars, and estimates and projections are in constant 2012 dollars.  Historic 2011 markets and the projected markets for 2012 and 2017 are provided.  Most market summaries are based on a consensus scenario.  Pessimistic, consensus and optimistic market scenarios characterize several developmental markets.  Totals are rounded to the nearest million dollars.   When appropriate, information from previously published sources is identified to allow a more detailed examination by clients.

The study also includes a discussion on both public and private companies active in research and/or development, to include company profiles, applicable patents and geographical trends and forecasts.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This study is a valuable resource for those who need to understand the technological and market impact of magnetic materials and devices based on nanotechnology, and for decision makers in companies or institutions that:

  • Manufacture, process or sell magnetic nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, microspheres, ferrofluids, thin films and bulk materials.

  • Provide consulting, public relations or other services to the nanotechnology community.
  • Are planning to make investments or acquisitions in the nanotech space.
  • Produce or market conventional magnetic materials and devices.
  • Develop competing technologies or products in areas in which nanomagnetic materials and devices will have (or are already having) an impact, including:
    • Biomedical imaging agents.
    • Biosensors or bioassays.
    • Bioseparations media or equipment.
    • Data, video and audio storage products.
    • Drug delivery and disease treatment technologies.
    • Industrial seals.
    • Industrial sensors.
    • Nonvolatile memory.
    • Soft magnetic cores.
