Nanomaterials are nano-sized particles with unique optical, mechanical and electronic properties. Nanomaterials derive these specific properties from the materials that are used in their manufacturing. Nanomaterials are majorly used in electronics and automotive applications due to their minute size and high effectiveness. Nanomaterials for printing is a niche market; it is still in a nascent stage. The market is estimated to expand significantly in the next few years due to higher demand for nanomaterials in the electronics and automotive end-user industries. The market is likely to be concentrated in developed regions such as North America and Europe. However, demand for automotives and electronic products is high in Asia Pacific. Therefore, the nanomaterials for printing market is expected to shift gradually toward the region during the forecast period. 
Nanomaterials used for printing are primarily based on metals and other materials that are conductive in nature, making them suitable for electronics applications. Materials that can be used include copper, gold, and silver. Major developments in the electronics industry and advanced printing techniques are anticipated to drive the nanomaterials for printing market in the near future. These materials are best suited for the inkjet printing process, as this process is direct and assures high level of accuracy vis-à-vis traditional printing processes. Additionally, the printing process coupled with nano-size of the materials enables modification of the shape, morphology and size in order to realize performance gains in end-use applications. For instance, nano-sized particles facilitate printing on various electronic components such as solar cells that have large array. The nanomaterials for printing market is expected to expand rapidly during the forecast period led by significant increase in automotive and electronics applications. Despite several drivers such as growth in electronics, automotive and other end-user industries, existing manufacturers of printing ink are likely to face the major challenge of migrating from high resolution and low cost printing inks to nanomaterials formulations or inks.
