Introduction & Scope

The global market for nanotechnology has been growing at a significant rate for the past twenty-years, in line with the application for environmental pollutant remediation, mainly driven by countries in North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe. This report describes current research efforts, and describes and quantifies developing environmental nanotechnologies already poised to enter the marketplace. In addition, manufacturers that offer these nanotechnologies, along with their upcoming planned products as well as further research and development, will be analyzed to demonstrate how these advances could impact specific environmental market segments. To assess the market, nanotechnology applications are broadly divided into three types: water remediation, air remediation and soil remediation. Increasing awareness over pollutants removal and alternative energy sources are the key drivers for the nanotechnology market.

Altair Nanotechnologies Inc., Applied Nanotech Holdings Inc., Applied Sciences Inc., Cyrium Technologies, Donaldson Co. Inc., Elmarco, Espin Technologies Inc., Hills Inc., Hollingsworth & Vose, Hybrid Plastics Inc., Inframat Corp., Koch Membrane Systems Inc., Moog Crossbow Technology Inc., Nanophase Technologies Corp., Nanotech Industrial Solutions Inc., Novacentrix Inc., Oxonica Ltd., QuantumSphere Inc. are some
of the key nanotechnology participants in the market. In terms of the demand growth rate of the nanotechnology for environmental applications, Asia-Pacific shows the highest market share in the global market followed by North America and Europe. Global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and pollution hotspots in different regions have driven the nanotechnology market to grow at a decent rate. This report also highlights the supplier landscape with a focus on major companies, as well as their detailed profiles.

The goal of this report is to provide an up-to-date analysis of recent developments and current trends in nanotechnology for environmental applications along with a survey of global markets for present and future potential nanotechnology products developed for environmental applications through 2020. This approach methodology will quantify the projected impact of both internal and external forces that are affecting the global nanotechnology market today and into the next several years. Factors involved in driving product demand within this vast untapped market will be explored in conjunction with trends, potential sales, and forecasts for various market sectors. In addition, manufacturers intricately linked with the production of these nanotechnologies, along with their upcoming offerings, will be analyzed to demonstrate
how these advances might influence the explicit environmental market segments.

Orthodox environmental remedial solutions have shown to be moderately effective in the face of widespread and intensifying pollutant loads that infiltrate the air, water, and soil. For a large-scale cleanup challenges, nanotechnologies steadfast application for environmental cleanup may yield to levels of sophistication and efficiency with original integrity in contaminant-affected areas. In addition, nanotechnology being applicable
for a chain of applications in electronics, specialty materials industry are intended to grow the market for nanotechnology with more research and development facilities.

The scope of this research report will encase different types of environmental remediation using different types of nano materials, but will concentrate primary on following applications:
- Environmental amendment.
- Environmental protection.
- Environmental maintenance.
- Environmental enhancement.
The market is broken down, according to region, by the major types of environmental remediation applications using nanotechnology. Revenue forecasts from 2015 to 2020 are given for each major application types. The report also includes a discussion of the major players in each of the regional markets. It explains the major market drivers of the global industry, the current trends within the industry, major industry challenges, and the regional dynamics of the global nanotechnology market.
