It possesses exceptional physical properties such as negative permeability and permittivity, and is often regarded as artificial medium with negative refractive index. The most efficient metamaterial medium possesses zero permeability and permittivity, and thus are best used to manufacture antennas to achieve high directivity. A metamaterial medium provides super-resolution in the far-field across image magnification, negative refraction of wavelengths, and enhanced spontaneous emission. Negative index metamaterial medium is an effective medium since it is made up of ordered macroscopic material, generally synthesized from the bottom up and yields emergent properties beyond its components as a single entity. The market for metamaterial medium has considerably increased in the recent past due to rise in demand for efficient sensing and transmitting systems across various end-use industries. There is an increase in demand for metamaterial medium, especially in optics industry as an alternative of its conventional counterparts. Moreover, increase in capital investments from public and private sectors along with rise in demand for materials with unique physical properties drives the overall market. However, insufficient research in spite of huge investments in R&D of metamaterial medium and high initial costs required to manufacture the metamaterial medium restrain the growth of the market.
