Gold nanoparticles, represented as AuNPs, are gold particles with a diameter of 1 to 100 nanometers (nm). They are majorly used in biomedical and biotechnological sciences for their large surface area and bio-inertness. They also have high electron conductivity, stability and solubility. These particles are manufactured in the form of nanospheres, nanocages, nanorods, nanoshells, nanocubes and nanoclusters and find extensive application in targeted drug administration and as agents in biomolecules delivery. Gold nanoparticles are also utilized as optical imaging probes for detection of biomarkers of various diseases and in imaging procedures such as positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound scans.
The growing medical industry, along with the growing demand for nanotechnological medical products, represent as the key factors driving the growth of the market. Gold nanoparticles are increasingly being used in the medical industry, especially in the dental sector, for various purposes including target imaging for cancer therapy and dental filling. Furthermore, the flourishing electronics industry is also significantly contributing to the market growth as these nanoparticles are extensively utilized to produce inks used in storage devices, hard disks and microchips. They are also used in the manufacturing of thin-film transistors and photo-sensors. Additionally, the food and beverage industry widely utilize colorimetric sensors that are manufactured using these particles. These sensors assist in detecting the freshness and consumability of food products. Various technological advancements, such as the development of injectable plant plastids to enhance biosynthesis and extensive research and development (R&D), are also driving the market further.
