Quantifying the Total Addressable Market (TAM)

The TAM for nanotech enabled diagnostics is estimated to be 2.439 US$ Billion (end of 2011).

Nanotechnology applied to medical imaging and gold nanoparticles for diagnosis were the application and technology respectively, with the highest growth during the last decade, currently (2011 figures) at:

  • Medical Imaging: 1.7 Billion US$
  • Gold Nanoparticles: 959 Million US$

While the US, China and Germany were the countries with the highest growth currently (2011 figures) at:

  • North America: 675 Million US$
  • China: 330 Million US$
  • Germany: 117 Million US$

We forecast the TAM for nanotech enabled diagnostics to reach $53.6B in 2021. In comparison our report “Nanotechnology for Drug Delivery” forecasts a TAM of $136B in 2021 for nanotech enabled drug delivery.

In 2021, Asia (China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India combined) tops the list with the highest TAM, China and India are neck and neck for CAGR.

Of all the technologies studied for this report, exosomes for diagnosis show the highest CAGR between 2011-2021 while medical imaging remains the highest growth application of the nanotech enabled diagnostics market in 2021.
