Report Sample Abstract:

The creation of new companies will not only increase the investment and market growth, but also increase the competition in the market place. In addition, the emergence of new companies will provide licensing and merger and acquisition (M&A) opportunities for larger pharmaceutical markets.

The market is also characterized by high levels of unmet need. This is primarily because development in this area is in its initial stages and has a significant number of unaddressed issues such as nanotoxicity, biological behavior and distribution pattern of nanoparticles. These unmet needs represent a significant opportunity for companies to explore.

In summary, high growth in the nano-enabled drug delivery markets will provide significant opportunities for companies.

Increased Investment and Emerging Business Models Will Support the Market Growth

The increasing investment in the nano-enabled drug delivery market has significantly driven the market. Funding for nanotechnology programs increased during the administration of George Bush.

The nanotechnology funding is expected to increase significantly in the future. Among all the major geographies, the European government is investing more in nanotechnology R&D. This suggests that there will be increased governmental support for nanotechnology R&D. In addition, increase in early stage venture capital will also affect the market positively.

Careful Approach of Regulator towards Nanotechnology is Negatively Affecting the Market

The toxicity increases due to increased surface area for the particle when the size is reduced. This gives rise to concerns about the possible negative impact on public health and environment due to increased use of nanotechnology enabled products. Nanotechnology is increasingly being employed in industries such as medicine, cosmetics, food, semiconductor devices, energy and telecommunications due to the advantages it provides over the conventional technology. As the use of nanotechnology progresses, the risk of exposure to the population also rises. This has led a cautious approach of regulators toward nanotechnology.
