Metamaterial Medium Market is expected to garner $1,387 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 39.7% during the forecast period 2016-2022. Metamaterial mediums are defined as macroscopic composites possessing a man-made, three-dimensional, periodic cellular architecture designed to produce an optimized combination, not available in nature, of two or more responses to a specific excitation.

They show exceptional physical properties such as negative permeability and permittivity. The significance of metamaterials is that they allow engineers to manipulate wave propagation by arranging the unit cells in different ways. For example, though copper is a good conductor and appears bronze in color, a metamaterial designed out of copper can be engineered to be an insulator and reflect yellow.

Major players in the metamaterial medium segment have adopted agreement, partnership, and product launch as their key development strategies. Important players operating in the market include Kymeta Corporation (U.S.), Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (Canada), Metamagnetics Inc. (U.S.), Jem Engineering LLC (U.S.), Fractal Antenna Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Applied EM, Inc. (U.S.), NanoSonic, Inc. (U.S.), Alps Electric Co., Ltd. (Japan), TeraView Limited (UK), and Plasmonics, Inc. (U.S.).

The telecommunication industry segment dominated the global market in 2015, accounting for a market share of 100%, and is expected to maintain this trend in the coming years due to increase in use of negative index metamaterial medium to manufacture optical fibers and antennas.

Moreover, increase in use of electrically small antennas in applications such as telephone network, television network, and satellites boosts the rapid use of metamaterial medium in the telecommunication industry in various regions. Moreover, the optics segment is projected to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The adoption of metamaterial medium in sensing devices such as antennas and absorbers is driven by ease of availability of various plastics and polymers used in the manufacturing process of negative index metamaterial medium.
