Rising use of functionalized fullerenes for cancer imaging and treatment and use in electronic batteries are factors projected to support market revenue growth between 2021 and 2028. In addition, increasing application of fullerenes in drug delivery and gene delivery will continue to boost revenue growth of the market going ahead. Many researchers prefer fullerenes because of several beneficial properties such as being very small and readily dispersed, having very excellent biocompatibility, and not losing the initial reactivity. Fullerenes are nanomolecular carbon cages that can be used to deliver drugs and imaging agents. Fullerenes can work as drug delivery nanoparticles in a variety of ways. Whenever fullerenes are surface-functionalized, it can also have direct bioactivity, including antioxidant activity. Fullerenes are being utilized to carry drugs into the body, as lubricants, and as catalysts. These can function as hollow cages to catch other molecules. This is how fullerenes can carry drug molecules throughout the body and deliver drugs to where they are required, as well as trap and eliminate hazardous chemicals. However, concerns regarding environmental pollution due to toxic nano-compounds is a key factor expected to hamper market revenue growth to some extent during the forecast period. Besides, high cost of endohedral fullerenes will limit adoption, which in turn is expected to restrain revenue growth of the market.
