The Global Nanozirconia Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period, owing to rising demand for high-performance and durable products in various industries such as automotive exhaust treatment, biomaterials, mechanical components, and wear-resistant products. The growth will be driven by increasing use of nanomaterials in these applications which require better performance than conventional materials.

Nanozirconia is a family of materials, which are made up of zirconium dioxide and tetragonal crystal structures. It has properties such as high thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, etc.

Advantages Of NanoZirconia

High Thermal Conductivity: The nano-sized particles have much higher surface area than the larger size counterparts; thus increasing their rate of heat transfer from one place to another when heated or cooled. This property makes it very effective in reducing weight while maintaining strength for applications like car exhaust treatment and other products requiring increased cooling efficiency. Corrosion Resistance: One of the key features that set Nano Zirconia apart from most other ceramic composites is the low corrosion rate. This means that the material is resistant to oxidation, which can lead to degradation in the mechanical properties of other materials and also reduce their lifespan significantly.

Disadvantages Of NanoZirconia

Cost: The cost is very high because it’s a rare mineral with only around 500 tons produced annually worldwide from mines located primarily in Australia, China, and Russia. Limited Manufacturing Capability: It takes time and effort for manufacturers to produce nanostructured ceramic products like nanozirconias. They have limited manufacturing capability as they require higher precision machining equipment than conventional ceramics do with certain intricacies that need special attention during manufacture.


On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Hydrothermal Method and Precipitation Method.

Hydrothermal Method:

The hydrothermal method is a process of synthesizing nanostructured ceramic products like nanozirconias, where zirconium oxide (ZrO) and water are mixed at high temperatures and pressure. The ZrO vaporizes to form fine droplets that coalesce into solid particles when the reactor cools down. The nanoparticles have an average diameter of 200 nm-1000nm with diameters as small as 20 nm due to the self-organization properties of this technique. These features give hydrothermally grown nanozirconia superior wear resistance in comparison to other forms of ceramics such as alumina or silicon carbide which can only be used for applications requiring very low levels of wear. This technique can be used to grow nanozirconia in different shapes, such as spheres, plates, or fibers; depending on the reactor and processing parameters. The size of these particles affects their surface area which directly impacts their reactivity with other chemicals during synthesis reactions for example. Larger particles are more reactive than smaller ones because larger surfaces expose more atoms for other species to combine with under a given set of reaction conditions. This is why the hydrothermal method leads to higher purity products than the precipitation method when synthesizing nanostructures like zirconia powders (ZrO).

Precipitation Method:

This synthesis process usually uses aqueous solutions of potassium or ammonium carbonate as the precipitating agent. Here, the zirconia particles are synthesized from amorphous precursors in two steps: nucleation and crystal growth. This method can be used to form spherical nanostructures which have advantages such as high mechanical strength for wear-resistant applications where size matters more than a surface area; contact angles > 140° with water (hydrophobic), enabling stable dispersion into water-based products; and a wide range of chemical stability. It is challenging to use this technique on an industrial scale because it needs large amounts of feedstock materials, hence leading to higher production costs.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Biomaterials, Mechanical Components, Automotive Exhaust Treatment, Wear-resistant Products, and Special Tool. Nanozirconia has been extensively studied for use as a biomaterial. It is used in dental implants, artificial joints, and bone cement to improve the success rates of these procedures. Dental implants are one of the most popular applications for nanozirconias (among various medical fields) because they can withstand high-stress levels under heavy loads with minimal wear over time while maintaining their stability at body temperature.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North American, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is predicted to yield the highest revenue by 2028. It accounted for more than half of the total market share in 2018 owing to high demand from automotive manufacturers.
