Nanomaterials have enormous potential and are slated as materials for the future technologies. There are several specific type of nanomaterials already developed in the marketplace and Nano Silver is one such material which has the potential to be used across various industries. Relatively increased chemical reactivity and quantum effects are expected to make Nanomaterials more cost effective products in the medium term. Versatile applications combined with cost effective manufacturing method makes nano silver a product of the future.
Nano Silver exhibits antibacterial as well as conductive properties. Therefore due to its antimicrobial nature, it finds use in various applications, ranging from healthcare, plastics, food packaging while the conductive properties makes it find application in electronics, conductors, touch screen etc. However, 80% of nano silver is presently used as an antibacterial agent. Existing players in the field of drug manufacture, food packaging, textiles, detergents, solar cells, consumer electronics, sensors etc will find the report more useful as it opens up a whole new world of business opportunities. The emerging application areas where research efforts are underway are again in the fields of medicine and a few in the area of conductive applications.
The current global consumption of nano silver is estimated to be in the range of 800 MT. North America is the largest consumer of Nano Silver by volume followed by Europe. However, 60% of the global capacity is located in Asia especially in China and Korea. Nano Silver is sold in two forms – solid powder and liquid solution. There two main processes for manufacture of nano silver are Control Detonation System and Hot Plasma Jet System. The price and quality of the nano silver is dependent on the particle synthesis method used.
