Global Metamaterials Market to Reach US$ 6,442 Million by 2032, Propelled by Significant Growth in the Aerospace Industry

February 06, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Metamaterials Market Report by Type (Electromagnetic, Terahertz, Photonic, Tunable, Frequency Selective Surface, and Others), Application (Absorber, Antenna and Radar, Cloaking Devices, Super Lens, and Others), End User (Aerospace and Defense, Medical, Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Energy and Power, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global metamaterials market size reached US$ 815 Million in 2023. Metamaterials refer to artificially engineered products that possess novel properties and functionalities that are not found in naturally occurring substances. It includes electromagnetic, acoustic, tunable, thermal, quantum, seismic, and photonic metamaterials. They are commercially produced by advanced manufacturing techniques, such as nanofabrication, self-assembly, direct laser writing, and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Metamaterials are widely used in optics, telecommunication and antennas, cloaking devices, solar cells, architectural acoustics, high-resolution imaging systems, and electronics cooling. They exhibit unprecedented properties, such as negative refractive index, superlensing, and perfect absorption, which aid in controlling and manipulating energy waves. Metamaterials also enable miniaturization of devices and components while maintaining optimum efficiency.

Global Metamaterials Market Trends:

The significant growth in the aerospace industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Metamaterials are widely used in aircraft stealth technology, thermal management systems, acoustic insulation, electromagnetic shielding, and manufacturing of lightweight components, such as aircraft wings, fuselages, and other structures. Along with this, the widespread product utilization in the defense industry to produce armor and protection systems, communication systems, infrared (IR) imaging devices, sonar systems, and sensors is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing product application in the telecommunication industry to miniaturize antennas, improve signal transmission and reception, and enable advanced beam steering capabilities is contributing to the market growth. Additionally, the utilization of three-dimensional (3D) printing in product manufacturing to enable the creation of intricate geometries and complex metamaterial structures with high precision and efficiency is strengthening the market growth. Besides this, the recent development of programmable metamaterials that offers adaptive functionalities, such as dynamic focusing, frequency tuning, and beam steering, is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, the rising product utilization in medical imaging applications, such as terahertz imaging and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is providing a thrust to the market growth. Other factors, including increasing product utilization in consumer electronics, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and growing product applications in renewable energy generation, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 6,442 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 24.5% during 2024-2032.
