Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Nanofiber Materials Market for Biomedical Industry 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global nanofiber materials market for biomedical industry: Ahlstrom, Asahi Kasei, Donaldson, Nanofiber Solutions, SNS Nanofiber Technology, TEIJIN, and Toray.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3-D Matrix Medical Technology, AMSilk, Argonide, Collagen Matrix, eSpin Technologies, FibeRio Technology, Hollingsworth & Vose, NANOVIA, and NXTGEN NANOFIBER.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing medical filters market. Globally advancement in the healthcare industry, biotechnology, and advanced medical devices and the increasing demand for high-purity products are the key driving factors for the growth of the medical filters market. Nanofiber-enabled medical filters are primarily used in infusion filters, sterile filtration, drug delivery system, hemodialysis, diagnostic assays, biosensors, bio-artificial pancreas, bio-artificial liver, liquid filtration, and air filtration devices.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is ease of nanofibers preparation using electrospinning. Electrospinning is a technique that can generate fibers with diameters in the range of 10-1,000 nm. Using this method nanofiber can be spun from polymer melts, solutions, or ceramic precursors using a high potential electric field. Technical simplicity and easy adaptability make this process advantageous for industrial productions.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is scale-up of the process. The major issue in nanofiber production using electrospinning is the scale-up of the process. The maximum reported productivity of electrospinning process using a typical single nozzle setup is approximately 6.5 kg/h.
