Barriers are Coming Down

For more than a decade, Chris Phoenix (CRN's Director of Research) has periodically been estimating the financial and technical difficulty of developing molecular manufacturing. He's recently detected a pattern: like the cost of computers, his estimate of development cost has been falling by half every 2-3 years. That means that if developing molecular manufacturing would cost $1 billion today, by 2020 it could cost less than $10 million.
