The global nickel nano powder market size was valued at USD 356.5 million in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 387.0 million in 2022 to USD 758.8 million by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with nickel nano powder experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 7.1% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Nickel nano powder, also known as nickel nanoparticles, is a black or gray-colored powder that provides excellent electromagnetic, chemical, and mechanical properties. The product is applicable as ceramic and lubricant additives, conductive coatings, and electromagnetic shield. The rising product demand for several applications in chemical manufacturing, medical devices, research & laboratories, nanomaterials, and electronics devices is attributable to market growth. Rapidly developing nanotechnology has widened the scope for scientists, manufacturers, and consumers from sectors, thereby creating growth opportunities for the market.


COVID-19 Lockdown and Closing Mining Activities Impacted Product Demand

With the rise of COVID-19, nickel prices slumped due to low availability of raw materials. This has impacted manufacturers’ ability to sustain themselves in the market through revenue generation. In addition, the pandemic negatively impacted the nickel nano powder companies with the decline in demand from end-users such as research laboratories, electronics, and nanomaterial manufacturers. Demand for consumer electronics declined as users felt these products were nonessential and reduced product consumption.

However, permanent magnets have applications in ventilators, and the continuing pandemic has augmented their demand as ventilators are crucial in treating respiratory concerns. Ventilator-making companies, mainly based in China have increased production to meet surging demand in the country. Additionally, nickel nanoparticles are used for absorbing electromagnetic radiation and shielding; hence, they have a high demand from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines. Increasing patient visits to hospitals and diagnostic centers during the pandemic resulted in higher demand for MRI machines.

Rapid Expansion for Nanomaterials Offers Lucrative Growth Opportunities for the Market

The propelling demand for nanomaterials in several industries opens growth opportunities for the nickel nanoparticles market. Single-walled carbon nanotubes are combined with nickel nanomaterials to enhance the characteristics such as hardness, tensile strength, and elastic modulus. The nickel-bonded carbon nanotubes exhibit semiconductor or conductive metallic properties depending on the structure, which is helpful in nanoscale electronic devices and electrically conductive films for applications in plastics, coatings nanowires, nanofibers, and bioscience.

Government regulations favoring composite nanomaterial usage in automotive and aerospace industries will propel product demand. Additionally, increasing energy storage and power generation applications shall support the nickel nano powder market growth.

Furthermore, the demand for transparent conducting materials is rising from applications, including touch screens, displays, solar cells, and optical panels. This is projected to bolster product consumption due to their high optical transparency.


Increasing Demand from the Electronics Industry will Drive the Market Growth

The increasing product demand from the electronics industry is driving the market. Technological advancement has been on the rise owing to society's modernization and growing applications for industrial and commercial needs. Consumer attractiveness toward advanced products is the primary factor surging the demand for magnets and ceramic capacitors. This has resulted in increased product consumption in the automotive industry owing to the advent of Electric Vehicles (EVs). Furthermore, the rising incorporation of ceramic capacitors in telecommunications will fuel product demand.

The growing demand for fuel cells in the automotive industry will drive the consumption of nickel nano powders. Further, the introduction of regulations by government bodies to minimize emission rates and propel hydrogen-based energy demand is resulting in high product demand from electrode applications.


High Cost of Production and Processing is Likely to Hamper the Market Growth

The key restraint for the market is the high production and processing cost. The product is manufactured using sol-gel process, nanolithography, chemical vapor deposition, laser pyrolysis, and proprietary technologies such as radio frequency plasma technology. Nickel nano powder displays different toxicity and biological activity characteristics compared to its bulk form. This is increasing concerns over using nickel nanoparticles in the medical industry and affects its demand. Increasing production and utilization of these nanoparticles results in higher exposure to humans and the environment. All the factors mentioned above are expected to act as a market restraint.
