US demand for nanosized medical products will grow 17.1 percent annually through 2014. Cancer and central nervous system disorders will be the fastest growing applications. Nanomedicines will provide the best opportunities, while nanotech medical supplies and devices grow the fastest from a small base.
This study analyzes the $34.2 billion US nanotechnology medical product industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (nanomedicines, nanodiagnostics, nanotechnology medical supplies and devices) and application (e.g., wound management products, bone substitutes, dental products, surgical supplies and devices, medical implants).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 56 industry participants, including Roche, Abbott Laboratories and Johnson and Johnson.
