Introduction & Scope
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale, and it refers to the projected ability to construct items from the bottom up using techniques
and tools being developed to make complete high performance products. Nanotechnology is the branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules. On the measurement scale 1 nanometer is a billionth of a meter; or 10–9 of a meter. Nanotechnology can be used across various science fields, such as chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, and engineering.
With business potential of billions of dollars, nanotechnology in the printing industry is growing across the globe. Most professionals agree on the importance of
nanotechnology and its role in becoming an influential technology in the printing industry. Nanotechnology has brought new opportunities for printing technologists and
manufacturers of electronic components and inks. This study was carried out to convey the current dynamics of the nanotechnology enabled printing industry, the magnitude of the growth, and to clarify myths about the industry and its parameters.
The study’s goals are to:
1. Understand the industry and its scope in future developments of allied industries.
2. Understand the scope of ongoing research and developments for commercial use.
3. Understand which industry sectors and verticals will benefit the most.
4. The global market potential for the next five years.
5. Understand the take of industry on using nanotechnology enabled printing.
6. Understand the future opportunities linked with nanotechnology in printing.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The nanotechnology enabled printing industry has gone through many developments and now it is time to commercially prospect the advantages of decades of hard work.
The companies that will keep lead and pace in knowledge and a keen eye on market dynamics in this industry will benefit in the near future. BCC Research saw the need for such a study as currently -there is no focused material in this market targeting nanomaterial use in the printing industry, no information on the market potential for nanomaterial-based inks and no information on the market for nanotechnology-enabled printing systems.
SCOPE OF REPORT
The study is focused on nanomaterials that are used in printing, printing techniques, such as nanolithography and inkjet printing, and key applications that benefit from
nanotechnology enabled printing. The geographical markets represented include the U.S., Europe, and Asia–Pacific, where most of the research and development and patent applications regarding the printing industry, nanoinks, and printing techniques were obtained. The report also reviews the semiconductor industry and developments in the
semiconductor industry based on Moore’s law. This study is needed to understand the significance of next generation lithography and its developments.
