Table of Contents

Nanotechnology describes a wide range of technologies conducted on functional systems (physical, chemical and biological systems) at the nanometer scale (atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale). In a broader sense, it can be said that nanotechnology is the ability that can be projected to construct items either using the bottom-up approach or using the top-down approach, whereby top-down nanotechnology is considered to be the most well-established form of nanotechnology. Techniques such as Nano and micro lithography and etching constitute the top down processing; whereby larger materials are carved down to fabricate Nano scale features in explicit patterns. Bottom-up nanotechnology, also known as molecular or chemical nanotechnology, includes building up materials and structures starting from the atom level, through the technique of self-assembly. The report study includes the demand of this particular market on a global and regional scale for a five-year period of 2016-2021, both in terms of production volume (Units) and revenue ($billion).

The market is evaluated based on the key attributes such as the power in the hands of producers and consumers, inter-industry rivalry and threats from substitutes and new entrants.

The report also includes segmentation based on types, applications and end user industries. Types of nanotechnology products include aviation coatings, marine coatings, Nano composites such as nanoparticles, nanoclays and nanotubes, nanofibers and others. The major applications of the global nanotechnology market include medicine and healthcare diagnosis applications such as in imaging, therapy and in regenerative medicine, environmental applications such as in remediation and mitigation, pollution prevention and so on. The prominent end user industries such as Electronics and Semiconductor, Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Textile, Military, Healthcare, Food, automobile, Optoelectronics and Aerospace industry are showing significant improvements in this market.
