Gatan provides electron microscopy solutions in the US, complementing Thermo Fisher Scientific's electron microscopy business. A key trend in the nanorobotics market is technological advancement. In order to strengthen their market position in nanorobotics, major companies are working to incorporate innovative technological advancements into their nanorobotics solutions. For instance, in August 2020, A new scanning electron microscope (SEM) was launched by JEOL Ltd., a Japanese manufacturer of electron microscopes and scientific instruments. It is equipped with a Schottky field emission electron gun in the lens. The technology involved in this equipment can observe and analyze miniature materials in a laboratory.

Nanorobotics Market: COVID-19 Impact

The healthcare industry, including oncology care, has faced significant challenges during the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. New patient registrations and surgical procedures have declined for cancer patients. Likely, the pandemic's impact on cancer screenings and delayed hospital visits have affected nanorobots' ability to target cancerous cells. However, nanotechnology may aid the industry in recovering from viral infections. Using nanobots for COVID-19 diagnosis, control, treatment, and management has become possible due to this technological advancement. The overall industry share is expected to benefit from developments such as these. It is possible that the pandemic affected cancer screening and delayed hospital visits, which may have influenced the use of nanorobots in cancer cell targeting. On the other hand, nanotechnology might prove useful in treating viral infections, which could help the sector recover.

Nanorobotics Market: Drivers

Increased Application in Healthcare to Drive Market Growth

As a result of increasing attention paid to preventative medicine and technological advancements in nanotechnology, the market is expected to grow. Advance technologies and solutions such as machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) have also been used to develop and adopt medical advice and equipment. Patients suffering from diseases or compromised immunity can benefit from using nanorobots by reducing the risk of human error in medical procedures and healthcare applications. Nanorobots have also proved useful in antiviral and antibody studies. Additionally, nanorobotics is used for cancer detection and treatment, gene therapy, and dentistry procedures as ancillary devices for chemical reactions and to monitor and control blood glucose levels. The rapid development and application of nanorobotics in various fields and industries are expected to open up further opportunities and significantly increase revenue growth for a market. Commercializing biomaterials, in vivo imaging, in vitro diagnostics, active implants, and drug therapy in the healthcare sector explains the large share of this application. Nanorobots are increasingly used in healthcare to perform complex tasks to reduce human error due to advances in molecular robots and a growing focus on regenerative medicine and nanotechnology. DNA nanotechnology studies support a large-scale application of nanorobots in healthcare. In addition to investing in further nanotechnology research and development, market players enter into long-term partnerships and generate long-term returns from nanobots.

Drug Delivery Applications are Driving Market Growth

A biomedical application for nanobots has great potential as an emerging field. Targeting difficult-to-reach body parts while delivering medicinal compounds is highly desirable. Even though there is still a lot of work to be done in this field, previous research suggests that it will be vital in combating diseases that are difficult to treat in the future. In general, however, most researchers find it challenging to ensure that their concepts will be successful at the nanoscale. Nanobots that can deliver drugs with precision have become increasingly popular in the last few years thanks to increased research into engineered nanobots. In December 2019, researchers from IIT Guwahati synthesized nanobots made from tea extracts, called ‘teabots,’ which can be used as biocompatible drug delivery agents.

Nanorobotics Market: Restraints

Miniaturization Increases Complexity to Hamper Market Growth

Despite this, market revenue growth is being hampered by the increasing complexity of miniaturization. In order to develop and further reduce the size of nanorobotics, highly skilled professionals are required. Nanorobotics also require a certain level of skill to be used. Researchers are working to increase the efficiency of the technology and make it more accessible to other fields. As a result, the growth of the nanorobot market in the targeted period will be further hampered by excise taxes and heavy custom duties applied to nanorobots in the medical field. However, in the near future, the commercialization of nanorobotics systems might further undermine the nanorobot market's growth.

Nanorobotics Market: Segment Overview

Nanomanipulators to Dominate Market due to their Nanopositioning Capability

In physics and chemistry, nanomanipulators were first used in nanopositioning nanorobotics to develop several nanomanipulators. Nanomanipulators are the first nanorobotics capable of nanopositioning. In nanorobotics, nanomanipulators were among the first commercial nanorobotic systems to manipulate atoms and molecules and had capabilities similar to those found in industrial manipulators. As the first commercially available nanorobotic system, nanomanipulators are used to manipulate molecules and atoms and have been used to evaluate the properties of polymers, carbon nanotubes, disease pathogens, microchips, living cells, and metal particles.
